FOURTEEN BY TWELVE

Hey, hello again and welcome back for the very last time to the Drag City Newsletter. The last time for 2009, that is – unless you expect us to squeeze another couple of releases into this last half month here. We wouldn’t put it past ourselves, actually – the new Drag City (and Sea Note) releases that come out today mark the fourteenth release date this calendar year.
