ANDY AND HIS GRANDMOTHER

posted May 20th, 2013

Sometimes here at Drag City, we like to let the world present our news to you, the consumerfan, for us. Then, once every tiny inch of blog-space has been infiltrated with said news, we wait just a minute for the dust to settle before striking once more, direct from HQ, with a reminder of just who brought you such exquisite and exciting information in the first place. Yes, who knew? Drag City = Spin City. And this be one of those spinning wheels; in this... (read more)

HEAR THE SOURCE FAMILY TODAY, SEE THE SOURCE FAMILY TOMMOROW

posted May 17th, 2013

The Source Family documentary is this season's art-house go-to cinematic experience - everybody's talkin', but we can't hear a word they're saying! That's cause Drag City Films, while proud of the promotion and distribution of it's latest film, is the younger child, the baby, if you will, in the Drag City family - and since the elder child is about the records, we're hustling hard this week to get copies of The Source Family Original Soundtrack into the hands and eventually ears of a fascinated...

SCOUT NIBLETT DRAWS GUN

posted May 13th, 2013

Hey batter, hey batter! It's Up To Emma is in the lineup of New Drag City releases today - and in fact, Scout's on deck and approaching the plate! This is the Scout Niblett you know and love and have all waited for - new, nude and rude (a state of mind, people - clothes are mostly ON, as are the new, nude and rude perfomances) plus intimate and familiar, to boot. Like a dress or a gown that's trans-formative yet lives in the... (read more)

LIVE SOUNDS OF A LIVING BRAIN (HUMAN), BROUGHT TO YOU BY MASAKI BATOH

posted May 9th, 2013

Does the mind make a sound? Will it be heard in a forest of crashing trees, if no one's not around? It can and will be, if you use a Brain Pulse Machine! And you won't have to run off to a cabin in the woods to hear it, either - because Masaki Batoh is in the middle of a North American tour to celebrate and propegate the album of his discovery, Brain Pulse Music, wherein the amazing Brain Pulse Machine is used...

SIC ALPS ON TOP AND IN THE BIZ BAG

posted May 8th, 2013

This morning, the world heard the premiere of "Biz Bag," one of the completely bonk, top-of-the-pop-tart jams from the freshly pressed-and-forthcoming (May 21st!) “She’s On Top” 12"EP by Sic Alps. "She's On Top," a concise gem-drop! Pure rock n' roll directives of an unusually clean (for Sic Alps!) variety pour forever from das grooves and we're not gonna lie - this ain't no waxident, it's a classicident! One solid blast threatens to obliterate both end of yer... (read more)

TODAY IS THE DOPE SATURDAY YOU ALWAYS WANT TOMORROW TO BE

posted May 7th, 2013

Dope Body come on like the animal that knows one thing and one thing only: how to get it up any night of the week like it's the last Saturday night on planet earth. Point come to shove, they're sweetly in tune with every day of the week and all their chemical properties - so much so that any evening under the stars can turn from droll to delectably cosmic and sweat-filled, hot and sticky like an awakenings-bright beam of light, leaping through the cosmos...

NEW YEAR, NEW DATES WITH AZITA

posted May 2nd, 2013

Year was the sleeper record of 2012, and it is from that slumber we rise into 2013! With the fresh sun of a new year shining down, AZITA's out the door and and into the good ol' darkness of clubs scene with some absolutely crucial Eastern and Midwestern tour dates! Because indeed, when AZITA plays live, you're getting more than the experience of hearing tracks from records (and she's got a few, including maybe even the one you haven't hear yet) - you're getting...

AS SUMMER APPROACHES, PREPARE FOR BITCHIN BAJAS

posted May 1st, 2013

Bitchin Bajas are back, baby! Their new album Bitchitronics, out July 16, 2013, is ready with the quickness we expect from the Chicago-based band - which is funny, since their area of mastery is that of synthetic ephemeral sonic languidity known more instinctively, inclusively (and let's face it, irresponsibly) as drone music. Basically, they make slow music at a fast pace. Bitchitronics is their first record as a trio, blending new instruments into the mix of electric keys and posthuman tones and loops of... (read more)

SIX ORGANS OVER ITALY

posted April 29th, 2013

Lately, the Drag City underground HMFQ has received strange sonics from the outer regions of the solar system. Since our satellite (overground antenna) is live, 24/7, ready for direct interface with intelligent, (ie, non-earthly) life at any moment, it's not really freaking us out too much. We get audio disruptions from asteroid showers, magnetic fields, space junk, and exploding planets on a regular basis, which keeps us on each other's toes and acutely dialed in; thus, it's with the greatest of ease that we recognize...
