PROJECT: SLEEPER-MERSH!

posted September 20th, 2013

Hey, rockers! If you've been living under a rock, have we got some real news for you! Ty Segall put out a banging new LP, entitled Sleeper, one whole month ago! It's already been declared a classic, which shows how time flies for us here in the real world - you underworld people probably can't tell the difference between one month and one minute. It's like a solitary in a prison or something, "the hole," with no indication as to whether or not it's... (read more)

PURLING HISS HIT THE ROAD, DISH NEW VID

posted September 13th, 2013

Summer's all about relaxing by the pool, tubin' with your special someones and blowing up fireworks while trying to keep your body intact. But once fall returns and you head back to school, things get a little dicey, amiright? You gotta cruise through class while trying not to be obvious when buzzing hard on your favorite substance, and suddenly you gotta keep your mind intact, which is tough to d...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Wha?

GET DOWN WITH THE CELEBRATE MUSIC SYNTHESIZER GROUP

posted September 12th, 2013

For sure, we feel great joy in slinging the best of the Sun Ark label's latest swag on the reg: Sun Araw, mostly. Indeed, this month, we release the coveted On Patrol double LP to the world, back in print for the first time in several minutes.

TRANSMITTING FROM THE SIX ORGANS SATELLITE

posted September 9th, 2013

Here on the Earth's surface, it feels like a quiet year for Six Organs of Admittance. A handful of Italian shows back in the spring, but what then? A single show, curiously, at the Esoteric Book Conference this very week - we're certain Ben Chasny won't be paid in what you'd call money, at least by normal standards, so what, then? EBC seeks to showcase the talents of the world's leading esoteric and occult figures: does it remind us a little of this mysterious... (read more)

CAROL KLEYN GETS OUR SEAL OF APPROVAL

posted September 5th, 2013

If you haven't heard Carol Kleyn yet, you're about to in ways you never thought you would! We've held her in the highest regard for many moons now, this being the third sequential year that ol' Drag City has re-unveiled the rare jewels of Carol's three-piece crown. This'n, it's called Return of the Silkie (due right about the now, September 17th!). Return of the ...wha? "Silkie" is the affectionate Scottish nickname for those beautiful barking sea-creatures we 'mericans adaptively call "Seals" - and in... (read more)

WANNA BE REMOVED FROM THE DAY TO DAY? GET CROPPED OUT!

posted September 5th, 2013

Whoa, what is it with Louisville? The town that pipelined a whole funky bunch of Drag City's roster- including Endtables, Papa M'Pajo, David Grubbs, King Kong, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, and more than we can freakin' remember in our burnout haze- keeps delivering the goods. This time though, it ain't a whole new banded entity we're talking about, it's the community festival be-in camping vibe of ye olde (4 years runnin' and countin'!) Cropped Out Festival. A safe...

TOURING - WOT IS IT?

posted August 30th, 2013

It's playing shows, it's live: it's like, raw and feels good, and sometimes bad. Sometimes bad-ass. It's loud, it's soft, it's really unreal, bent-time continuum and human-human interaction to the 4th dimension: bands working it out within themselves, work it out into you, then you're giving it back to them and share it with the ones next 2 U, 2. It's finding the hill and rolling down it, like Mike Donovan and band prove it, it's life as life. Dig, Donovan's solo debut album, ... (read more)

MICK TURNER TAKES THE LONG WAY HOME: DON'T TELL THE DRIVER

posted August 30th, 2013

Mick Turner is risen! Rose? Resin? Rizla? Whatever! Replete with classic epics and timely reprises, Don't Tell the Driver is an inspired and focused collection of Mick Turner music that reaches for new borders without sacrificing the dizzy wandering and painterly stillness that has typified Mick's best work of the past. With the help of his many friends, Mick Turner has turned over a powerful page of life and music on Don't Tell the Driver.

Yeah, Don't Tell the Driver is different from... (read more)
