AMBARCHI, O'MALLEY, DUNN GET VISUAL, VISCERAL WITH "TEMPORAL, EPONYMOUS"

posted June 27th, 2014

You know what's heavy? A double-LP! That's just science, kids - but it makes Shade Themes From Kairos is record with serious weight! Double-LP plus Ambarchi/O'Malley/Dunn equals some crazy kind of solar mass, like the weight of the sun or some shit. And like all things lingering in our collective conscience, it's found a way to partially re-animate itself in video form! No friend, the Shade album not the sun! It's also not an animated short of Stephen O'Malley, Oren Ambarchi, and Randall Dunn taking... (read more)

FROM SOMEWHERE COMES... DAN'L BOONE!

posted June 25th, 2014

The new planet recently discovered by NASA’s Kepler telescope is earth-sized and earth like. It is in fixed orbit - called a tidal lock - meaning that on one side it’s always night and one side it’s always day. On one side of the planet people grow mad amounts of tomatoes, on the other side everyone’s got the worst fucking case of Seasonal Affective Disorder EVER! It’s about 5000 light years away from earth. It is said we can’t reach this planet without first discovering... (read more)

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER! JUNE 2014

posted June 24th, 2014

Welcome back to the Drag City Newsletter, circa June 2014! We say circa because it’s unclear; at any given moment, we might also be working in, on or around June, July, August, October, et cetera. Plus that might also involve, as it does at present moment, the revisiting of years like 1997, 1990, 1982 and 1990 just to rediscover the McMojo of that time and present it to you all over again in single-release form of one kind or another. So as you can... (read more)

posted June 20th, 2014

Three weeks ago, we sharpened our ever-expanding altruistic vision and pleaded with you: do not miss out on this specially limited 10" offering from Neil Michael Hagerty & The Howling Hex.  It's called "Fool's Watch" b/w "Lord Gloves," and while it doesn't technically drop 'til Tuesday, we've shipped every single copy outta HQ already- sorry Charlie! Pray your local bodega ordered some - if so, they're in transit and you can continue to rest your mind! But if not, and since we're in the... (read more)

JUST LIKE THIS, WHITE FENCE DROP NEW SONG, "LIKE THAT"

posted June 17th, 2014

It's a funny fun world when you've got the means to enjoy it - having security and financial worth, the type which affords cushy accoutrements and play time, big grassy knolls for yards and multiplicative horses and car-bling to boot. For whom does this reality describe? Those living "Like That," naturally, on the other side of your fence, those beyond the view stretching from your tracks. "Like That," the first single from White Fence's soon to be released LP, For... (read more)

THE BISH IS BACK

posted June 13th, 2014

....the Sir Richard Bish, that is. Yeah, he's been around the world just like you know he would, bending strings and expanding tonalities while living in Thailand and Morocco during the past year, following an extended residency in Geneva in the first part of 2013. But no matter where you are, time passes quickly, and this is the first time in four years that Sir Rick's playing in some of these United places. Yeah, there was probably some Rangda-ing going on in... (read more)

posted June 11th, 2014

Hey, "Great" Britain - we know, it's summer. That means endless vacation time, right! So if you are sitting around, wondering what the hell you might do for the next fortnight while you wait for another bank holiday to roll around, why not take it on the bum?

THE MANIPULATOR MAN GETS LOOSE!

posted June 9th, 2014

The news is it out! Ty Segall is on the loose again and going for broke this August with Manipulator,an all-new, all-ROCK double-LP, also available on cassette and compact disc. Multicolored manias abound as our young fuzz-master breaks the dials in search of the ultimate distortion, combing dark and light tones together into the long hair of seventeen songs. Fresh beats abound and savage rock sits heavily next to hip-shakin' sunshine pop as Ty sets the kitchen sink on fire! Yeah - it's... (read more)
