WHY SETTLE FOR PEACE? CAVE OFFER THREACE!

posted July 2nd, 2013

Behold, Threace! It's the brand new LP from international touring sensations CAVE, arriving October 15th, and it might just bring an end to your party -- no more dancing, no more talking, just people listening to every last clang, tweet and honk of a band really getting after it. Recorded on a 1" 8-track Scully machine that may or may not have spent some quality burn-in time at Muscle Shoals, Threace was half-planned and half-jammed using different mic placements, building up from a...

DEATH IN A THEATER NEAR YOU!

posted June 28th, 2013

Four years since the release of ...For The Whole World To See, and everyone continues to talk about Death!

DEAR LADIES AND MASTERS, MEET CARRIE JEAN

posted June 27th, 2013

We always celebrate the last Thursday in June! This year, it's with the 3rd and final installment of the trio of videos from Sic Alps, all coming from their "brilliant" new 12" EP, "She's On Top". Yeah, "Carrie Jean" screams in it's classic Alps' rock n' talk, another days' images repeat. It's no surprise to see a big ol' typewriter right at the forefront of the visuals when you watch it, like a vintage subtitler; Donovan and crew been... (read more)

LOVE WINS SWAROVSKI ACCESSORIES AWARD - BUY YOUR HAND A SILVER SKULL FROM FEATHERED FISH!

posted June 26th, 2013

Well, what? It's summer! Solstice just rolled through, and left us with the tips of a healthy tan. Whatchoo gon' do? We're all about showing off that skin; reducing the amount of clothing we'd normally wear to a bare minimum, the best and most worthwhile accessories to better accentuate our gender-neutral bods. Then there's you: you're even better off, cause you're damn good looking, built with curves that are loved and admired by exactly the type of person you want to attract, whoever he/she may...

Cabin crew, prepare for landing! Gliding through low altitudes, Bill Callahan has set his sites on the runway. It's 2013 and he's ready to land again, with a full-length of cargo for the people down below, on earth: Dream River, set to flow on September 17th!

LET YOUR HAIR GROW! BE WHAT YOU BE!

posted June 19th, 2013

It was a dark and stormy north coast night. On the horizon was the shadow of the Sleeper, his technicolor presence stretched across the land for all of the black and white world soon to see! Between two minds, between two places, on beyond Twins, Sleeper envisions a world of haves and have-nots, recorded in wide-spectrum Ty-fi. Engineered at home from beginning to end, Sleeper's ultimate sonics were accessed with a freak hand and an instinct for what makes a moment... (read more)

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER JUNE 2013!!!!!!

STANDING IN THE REIGN

The water is rising! June-going-on-July in DragCityTown, U.S.A., and our first six figurative (but also hauntingly literal) torrents of releases for the 2013 are all around you - like love, but in tangible, turntable-ready form. Which for us has always been a preferable form for love to take. Stacks so much more neatly, and don't melt nearly so easy! So with levels rising on Drag City musical, cinematic, literary and occasionally just accoutrement output - level both quantitative and qualitative,... (read more)

LOVING AND COPPING ARISE THEREFORE

posted June 17th, 2013

In today's Bonnewz, we've sat silently on this item for years - but now that the international moviegoing audience has succumbed to the appeal of Iron Man 3, we feel compelled to bring to your attention motion picture director Shane Black and Robert Downey, Jr.'s total superfandom for Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's 1996 album, Arise Therefore! Shane, writer and director for Iron Man 3 (starring Robert Downey, Jr.) also wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (from 2005, and again, starring... (read more)

GATHER 'ROUND FOR SAVIOR #3

posted June 13th, 2013

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy does it for you and he does it for all....but mostly, he does it for the children! He believes the children are our future - and if you think we're gonna argue with him and a dead r'n'b singer, you're dumber than our marketing department thinks you are! But enough about your bullshit! We've always dreamed of seeing a Muppetized version of our Bonny, though it's arguably more magic seeing the non-puppet original 'Prince' himself performing for a veritable romper room of...

THE SOURCE FAMILY COMETH TO YOUR HOME BOX!

posted June 12th, 2013

It's 2013; have you aligned yourself with a cult yet? If you're savvy enough to time-warp back to the oh, so seductive 70s, you might still be able to join up with Father Yod and his Source Family. The Source Family began as a bearded dude's all-natural health restaurant with yoga lessons in the back and a bunch of hippie kids working there, and soon transformed into so much more - a natural way of being, a gathering place for the wayward young souls,...
