A PSA FROM MEG BAIRD

posted November 14th, 2011

Been just a few fortnights since the release of Seasons On Earth, Meg Baird's warm-all-over soundtrack to the fall, and November's just getting hotter! Last week, the Philli-citizen unleashed a new video for "The Finder" from Seasons On Earth, and next week she's off to Europe for some tourin'. The vid, beautifully shot by Naomi Yang, doubles as a PSA for outdoorsin', too: The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department advises, "Hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts -- make blaze orange your...

YOU ARE THE WOLF(ROY) CONTEST

posted November 9th, 2011

Last month Wolfroy went to town. Did you hear it? Dare we ask for a physical description? Nah, Wolfroy looks like you - that’s how mahfucka sneaks ‘round. But we want to see it, like, see you as you see you.

Here’s the deal: You send us a self-portrait and we’ll pick the best ones, turn it into a special pink t-shirt and mail it back to you. And kind man that he is, Bonnie Prince Billy will sign a poster and send you a... (read more)

THE ITALIAN JOB

posted November 8th, 2011

Fresh off multiple hometown shows celebrating the September release of her newest batch of jams, Disturbing The Air, AZITA's set to ditch Chicago for a little southern comfort - of the Italian variety! Yes, taking care of business is what AZITA does best (piano and LPs in tote), but rarely does she get to do it in other towns, let alone other hemispheres. Disturbing The Air is a slow burning pop record replete with choice experimentation; but fear not, amici, AZITA's... (read more)

FALL BACK 200 YEARS

posted November 7th, 2011

Time's changed, brother, so Drag City's turned its clock back accordingly. Of course, in doing so we've only come to realize the dark days of winter are truly creeping up the ol' behind, a deep freeze near the back door. Alas, 200 Years provides an antidote to conquer (or enhance, given your preference) these early grey days both aurally and visually! 200 Years officially grace each-and-every-one of us with their debut, self-titled album tomorrow, November 8. In celebration, they've delivered a cake-like present in... (read more)

DRAGONSLAYER IN YOUR THEATER

posted November 3rd, 2011

You got a busy couple days coming up. Let's see...empty your pools and take some runs; practice your grindage, but don't bail and nut yourself before heading out tomorrow to catch the premiere of DRAGONSLAYER in New York at Cinema Village! Hell yeah, Dragonslayer is the second film Drag City has offered to the theaters, following Harmony Korine's marginalizing Trash Humpers, and it's about to blow up. Racking up awards left and right (Best Documentary, SXSW 2011; Best Documentary, Hot Docs) and... (read more)

LIKE THE PLAGUE

posted November 2nd, 2011

Ah, sweet, sweet Bill Callahan. If at first you don't succeed... try, try again, non? Yes, our Apocalyptic troubadour may have returned home from his springtime trip to Europe having convinced all that saw him of his masterful performance skills, but was anyone convinced of their impending doom? Not likely. Undeterred, Bill has fasted and will spend this week polishing his soapbox and re-stringing his guitar before embarking on a second run through the olde worlde with strengthened rhetoric. A consistent touring schedule and... (read more)

NEW CAVE VID! NEVERENDLESS TOUR CONTINUES!

posted November 1st, 2011

NEVERENDLESS flames on and on - and not by definition, either! CAVE continues to run olympic-style across this green Earth with a blazing torch, racing for victory and the light of spirit, knowledge, and life. Heavy shit, doode! Well, heavy music at least. Heavy, but lean, too - no fat, no flab, just a muscular slab replete with sinewy hypnotics of the rhythmic and sonic varieties. This tour is a massive continuation of the tour that's already been underway all fall, seemingly NEVERENDLESSly. Anyway,... (read more)

Having racked up 4 prestigious nominations from Cinema Eye - Best Debut Documentary, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Score - and having won Best Documentary at the Eastern Oregon Film Festival, what could possibly keep you from saving up a coupla bucks to see it? An intimate, 'verite' portrait of Josh "Skreech" Sandoval, the skate legend from the stagnant suburbs of Fullerton, CA, Dragonslayer takes the viewer through a golden SoCal haze of lost youth,...

FROM THE JUNGLE COME BLACK BANANAS

posted October 25th, 2011

Shit, Drag City's finally up and running in its new digs, and what'd we find creeping out from our kitchen? Nothing but BLACK BANANAS! No, not your rotting, starchy, potassium-filled fruit - Black Bananas is Jennifer Herrema & Co.'s new band, excavated from molted peel of RTX. Why the name-change? Well, who other than Jennifer is the queen of Banana songs? And after three albums under the name RTX, Herrema and her bunch- Mckinley, Midness, Welch, and... (read more)
