ASCENT FOR EUROPE

posted October 18th, 2012

That is, Ascent, the new sonic instance from Six Organs of Admittance, which broke through Earth's atmosphere before the leaves turned, back in August. Sent from space and channeled through the axe and voice of Ben Chasny, it's not just a relic to be held and maintained and played on your turntable - no, it's a skin-peeling thrill of a live experience, too. If you're going to be here for the rest of time, you might as well not regret any of... (read more)

SEEING DOUBLE IS BELIEVING DOUBLE

posted October 16th, 2012

Twins is hot off the presses, melting ear-hearts and turntables across the planet, a gooey black substance that feeds and grows like a sonic appendage. Seriously, if you're gonna grow a third arm, you freaks might as well make it a tone arm! That Ty Segall goop is molten, man! It rules, and Twins is gushing lava at a torrid pace - it's even mutating onto your television screen, tonight! Say wut?! Yeah. Tune into Conan O'Brien tonight, at 11PM EST, and catch yourself some... (read more)

XXXMAS EVE MASSACRE WITH BON N' DAWN

posted October 15th, 2012

Got a death wish? Cause if you're looking for a way out, "Christmas Eve Can Kill You," declare Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, by way of a booty-fool new 7" sheduled to hit streets just in time to stuff your stockings! Well hell, even right before then, to be truthful. You're sharp, you'll have it in time to bring home for Turkey-day, Black Friday, the 8 days of Chanukah, Beethoven's birthday and even and especially the grim blandness of Festivus, if...

S'CALP'D AGIN'!

D'ja like that? That's the way we say Sic Alps around here, we just say, like SCALPS, cause we don't have time to get all the way Sic. It's on the tip of our tongue freakin' often though - what with the way that their new album titled Sic Alps (d'ya like that?) is topping the charts inside the four walls of our castle (fortified against the street freaks and beggars here in wild wild Chi West). It's been out almost a month... (read more)

SUMMER DEEP

Man...how did we get here, anyway? Here we are, sitting on top of a pile of primo records, really great shit man. The last few months must have been awesome! Time for a moment of instrospection and self-hypnosis...ahhh. Safety. Now, if memory serves, it all started in the bloody heart of the summer. This is siesta time in many parts of our incredible shrinking industry, but not here at Drag City's weatherproof fartress. July was the time we chose to start our... (read more)

UP AGAINST THE WALL

As was once so firmly-yet-sweetly intoned (and for so much sweet monetary benefit (we hope!!)), the world is a ghetto - and as one of our great song-and-dance men added in the not-too-very-recent-past, beyond here lies nothing. Now, if you're not too bummed (or fuck, even if you are), we'd like to sprinkle the old adage, ashes to ashes and dust to dust, over the top of our introductory philo-sundae, just to set the tone nice and clear. There. Is the... (read more)

RANGDA RIPPING IT ON THE ROAD

posted October 3rd, 2012

Whut the gut? Formerly Extinct is alive and well on the turntable, in record stores and in our minds, ever since Rangda sacrificially gave birth to it on September 18th. If you've got sum change burning a hole in your pocket, douse those flames by picking it up, you heathen! There was a boat and you missed it, ok? But here's another skiff for you to grab onta. Anywhere, the "So-Right-It's-Rangda" tour kicks off in Europe in, like, days, man! Did you lose track of... (read more)

TWINS (SNEAK) PEEK

posted September 27th, 2012

Brace up, y'all! Ty Segall’s Twins is coming at you from both sides! October 9th is lurking, waiting for you and Twins to get down together in a menage-a-wha? As you (we) eagerly await that day’s a-dawning, Ty is giving you a little more to chew on (a triplet?). You’ve already received an explosive belt in the chops of Twins' sheer metallic sheen with the chart-leaping advance single, “The Hill.” Now, here's another slice of rancid beef from the butt of...
