HEY! YOU! GET INTO MY CLOUD!

WE KNOW WORLD - you have an opinion on digital music, we have the emails from many of your residents to prove it. BUT KNOW WORLD - Drag City don't hate on digital man, we sell mp3s on our website!

A GAELIC OLD TIME IN LONDON TOWN

posted May 22nd, 2012

Ach, those people of the nairth! They have their own way of living and their own sense of the time, the Scots do! And we're not just talking Hebridian sheep-farmers who stubbornly refuse to leave their now-deserted island homes either! Well, not entirely. We might be referring to them a little bit no matter which direction we turn in bonnie Scotland - because today, we're talking about the great Gaelic tradition in Scotland - and the Gaels are a Scottish people spread far and wide...

SIX ORGANS IN ASCENT

posted May 16th, 2012

For all of us earthbound creatures, the firmament with its revolutions of planets and stars, determining the spread of tides and the length of days and the drift of the calendar and the juxtaposition of our very personalities (astrology-wise, we're speaking) is a marvelous muse to have. Hanging over us day in and out, framed in the unattainable and yet somehow soul-linked to our own humble path across the face of this planet. There's an element of the uncanny to all of this and the... (read more)

YOU SEE I SEE A DARKNESS VID?

posted May 10th, 2012

I see a new Bonny risin'! Coming this summer is an EP of new versions of Bonny classics from years gone by - fresh-minted by his constant companions of late, Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiely and Angel Olson. Before you roll your eyes, and ask "Greatest Palace Music too?" get an eye-full of the rolling going on in the Ben Berman-directed video, which premiered on the good ol' New York Times (remember them?) and is now...

DWARR IN DTRENCHES

posted May 8th, 2012

We wouldn't call it Starting Over, but we're about to let the Animals out of the cage, yu-huck! Dwarr lives. Dwarr's LIVE! It's gospel truth, brother! You thought the records were the only Dwarr experience to be had? Don't be a non-believer! Dwarr is risen and for the first time EVER is prepared to hit the road! Animals and Starting Over are masterpieces of loner metal, birthed from an inner darkness, reaching fruitless for the eternal light, bathed in murk, dementia and just... (read more)

OM VISION

posted May 7th, 2012

Tour diaries are integral artifacts for musicians and music fans alike. Often consumed as literature in book form, like that of the self-publishing, Morrison-of-the-80s former 'Flag front person, or as online hoot-action like that of fellow SST graduate Watt, they're literal indulgences by and for maniacs struggling through a universe they simultaneously strive to conquer, embrace, and avoid. Not to say that OM are maniacs, or struggling in anyway! But they're certainly a conquering force, simultaneously embracing all in their path - physical and spiritual.... (read more)

THE SOUND OF SILENCIO

posted May 3rd, 2012

Don't turn around, cause Laetita Sadier is back! Two years freshin' since Laetitia's solo debut, The Trip (dang, 2 whole years?... whatevs, we been trippin all this time!), the Sadier marquee now reads, Silencio! No, it's not a request for you to put a cork in it so someone else can speak; rather, Silencio is an invitation to sample silence, to listen to how silence resonates with truth. You hear us? Silencio is born from a natural need for stillness, as well as... (read more)
