IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD BACK THIS RIVER

posted January 13th, 2017

What's this country coming to?!? Nobody should liven in fear in our land of the free, and noone should be discriminated against, no matter what they believe. Fortunately, in 2017, a true champion will arrive to lead ALL of us - honky tonkers, truckers, and piss pig freaks alike! Finally, a president that understands the true, tormented soul of men - and has more respect for the women than anyone else! On January 20th , it won't be simply a presidential inauguration - it'll be... (read more)

DRAG CITY LIMITS PRESENTS: CORY HANSON

posted January 11th, 2017

2017 might be the end of the world as we know it, but as long as we keep getting fine performances out of our legendary steamroom, hey - we feel fine! All things being ultimately equal, we can die with Cory Hanson's encapsulations of the dilemma of hope and it's yang of despair ringing quietly and classically in our ears. His debut solo album, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo, shines brightly from a deeply political perspective, one that is just as personal as... (read more)

THE LAETITIA SADIER SOURCE ENSEMBLE FIND THEMSELVES

posted January 10th, 2017

Another New Year, and new shapes are forming - if only we are fortunate enough to notice them! As we spin through this world, we are witness to all manner of combinations unfolding before us - familiar arcs and breaking waves alike, upon all of which it is our choice, our chance and our challenge, to possibly ride. Find Me Finding You, the new album from the new organization called the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, manages to strike new chords while touching familiar... (read more)

POOL OF ROCK, LE BON GIRL

posted January 9th, 2017

"Bins on fire, what's the occasion?", Cate Le Bon breathlessly intones upon the ether.  Well, what occasion do you need? Any day is a great one for a resounding stomp to rebound us back from a deeply lousy calendar year. One of the few good things that happened in 2*** was the release of Cate's Crab Day back in April - and now,  some nine months later, the four-song EP "Rock Pool"is a succinct and terse second coming, with Cate's gold songs...

DEATH'S CEASE FIRE/TAKE IT BACK SOUTHERN TOUR

posted January 5th, 2017

Detroit, Michigan's DEATH is living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty WILL prevail in an ever changing music industry - stick n' poke that to your arm! DEATH was conceived by band leader and guitarist David Hackney (1952-2000) in 1973. Although no one at the time would disagree that the unique Rock-N-Roll sound of DEATH was revolutionary, revolutionary enough in fact to be included in the new African American History Museum at Smithsonian in Washington DC. But you already know this! Since the rediscovery... (read more)

BILL CALLAHAN KICKS OFF 2017 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

posted January 3rd, 2017

It's a brand new year, rife with uncertainty and trepidation as we inch closer and closer to a precarious political, social, and environmental climate! We don't know how you feel (actually, we do), but to us, that means it's time to turn to Bill Callahan for that wise, confident and reliable voice - c'mon, how about a little darkness n' dry wit to match up with your general uncertainty? Oh, there's some love in there, too. We think. The people's choice might not be in... (read more)

ALASDAIR ROBERTS IS BACK... WITH PANGS!

posted December 15th, 2016

Over the past 15 years, Alasdair Roberts has released eight albums of self-written material and interpretations of traditional song alike, all played in a diversity of electric and acoustic arrangements, bringing a modern thrust to the music. Following the acoustic austerity of his self-titled 2015 release, Alasdair's applied himself to electric guitar and band once again for his ninth album, Pangs.

Alasdair Roberts and Friends were deep within the epic song approaches of the widely-acclaimed A Wonder Working Stone (2013) when... (read more)

HAVE YOU BEEN CLUED IN?

posted December 7th, 2016

The teen pop-pusher of the century, Tim Presley, keeps on pushing with a bouncy new video for "Clue!" September saw the release of Tim's first solo effort under his given name, and with Cate Le Bon on production duty, The WiNK drew eyes and ears to its solid, metallic brilliance the world over!

The unbreakable musical tension sharpens and slacks when coupled with the imagery provided by director Matt Grote. Shot entirely in black and white, Tim freely sways and struts... (read more)
