SCOUT NIBLETT ON THE USA TIP

posted July 11th, 2013

Yeeeeaaaaaahhh, yeah! Scout Niblett's European tour was so successful, she decided to hang out there for the rest of the summer, basking in the afterglow of conquered cities, melted hearts, interviews completed, and videos made. The band was tight, the audiences loose, and the groupies looser, all serving to Ms. Emma's near domination of the EU mainland and British Empire. But regardless of Mercury's location in the relation to the sun (hint: it's a bitch!), our girl can't stay in hiding forever: the semi-friendly... (read more)

SUMMER TIME SNACKS

posted July 5th, 2013

Everything we do here under the Golden Arches at the Ivory Bunker is for Drag City. And yet, not all of it is Drag City. And yet again, everything we do here for Drag City is truly done for you. It's the artists of course who're cashing in. Yet again, we're cashing in on them. And you, obviously, we do it for you and cash in on you, too; and you on us, too (we supply your content). So with all that in... (read more)

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...

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...

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)
