FREE! SELF-INFLICTED INVASIVE ADVENTURE TIME

posted April 26th, 2012

No innovation can avoid imitation in our trust-bust America; therefore, following in the paths of such luminaries as Thomas Edison, pork, the Negro Leagues, artificial sweetener and the U.S.S.R., we take a step towards saturation. There we go again, watering down the effectiveness of yet another mode of communication! What the fuck’d we go and do that for? Well, so far no one has used the QR-code to its full capacity, and Drag City is always of the opinion that a balloon’s beauty can only... (read more)

A LITTLE BONNY IN ALL OF US

posted April 24th, 2012

For a price, of course! In the midst of record store day madness last weekend, perhaps your ear, eye, or ear-eye hybrid caught something about a Bonnie 'Prince' Billy condom. It wasn't your imagination! That Bondom should've been catching for you! And now, it can. In case you came up dry at your favorite music hole, Bonnie "Prince" Billy condoms can be obtained by anyone with the desire, the need and courage to purchase them from our ephemeral shop, Drag City's house of aphrodisiacs...

The People Under The Stares are back! Drag City & The People Under The Stares love showering you with comedic gifts, and the one we gonna bring to the party this summer is no exception! The biggest, most tightly wrapped, icing-topped, cream-filled, new car smelling, bikini-clad, groove-boned, gold-rimmed, pimped, dankest, purest, electric-day-glo, slap-sticky, cut-up, epic, bare-backed, chocolaty, willingest-to-talk-about-feelings, puppy-eyed, diamond-encrusted, organic ones are always the best, right?

IS THIS STILL EARTH? GET ROGERED BY ITALIAN ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE BONNY BILLY FOR MERE POCKET CHANGE??!?

posted April 19th, 2012

Hey, sex-brain! A mouthful of breast (or man-ass!) tastes so good with mitt full of thigh (or man-thigh!), doesn't it now? But when it comes to making it past third base and sliding deliriously into home, sweet loam, you better hop on the sex beat with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, girly-man! You've heard about Wolfroy Goes To Town, stick your hand inside our secret sac and grab a Bonny Billy prophylactic so you too can go to town, SAFELY! Drag City freely encourages sexual adventure...

HAIR DOWN TO WHERE DO YOU SEE IT??!?!

posted April 17th, 2012

We dread the barber, you know? Keep that shit long and lustrous, baby! Fear the "Scissor People!" If you're gonna get it cut, keep those DNA fibers in a plastic bag, son! Hair, the short long-player. Ty Segall & White Fence, the mohawk of mind-melds. It's a collab cut, the latest fade. Hair is in style, solid like your cow lick, the thing that's born on you. Look at it, looking at you, "Take Time." Feel it on your head and body, now... (read more)

ROLLIN' DOWN THE STREET IN MY BLACK BANANA

posted April 16th, 2012

Life rules a bunch: Black Bananas are in season! Can't look anywhere without seeing some Black Bananas paraphernalia, some wicked press shot, vanity 7", or a sick new video, like dis one for "My House!" "My House" bouncin' on some gangsta hydraulics, "My House" wailing at the spiritual vortex- mi casa es su casa, homie! Put on some leather, make sure it's tasseled, and start smoking again, cause Black Bananas are about to hit the road, bringing their living room to... (read more)

JUST IN TIMES FOR EARLY TIMES

posted April 12th, 2012

Kids these days, making records with their 4 tracks, their cell phones, their Mboxes... lest we remind you of some of the gay 90s pioneers for such experimental recordings? You know them as arena-style rockers today, but back when they were little muppet-baby types, David Berman, Stephen Malkmus and Bobby Nastanovich used to get fucked up after fucking up their day jobs and make songs, which they wrote by playing onto cassettes and microtapes via innovative studio techniques like direct to boombox and answering...

eREAD THIS, TOO!

posted April 10th, 2012

At Drag City, we're on a mission to make the things we know you want. Usually, we make the thing we know you want in multiple formats so as to effectively cover the duality of your mind and the poles of your personality. Just cause one shoe fits don't mean the pants will, too, right? Are you with us? Perhaps not, but we'll get you there! For years, Drag City has published books in the traditional formats, both hard- and soft-covers as well as two... (read more)

Cynthia Dall 1971-2012

posted April 9th, 2012

We are shocked and deeply disappointed to post this notice: Cynthia Dall passed away at her home in Sacramento last Thursday.

Cynthia was a muse that crossed over into actual-artist-dom. Her self was her original art, a spirit and image that was inspirational on first sight. The '90s were a great time to start playing music when you didn't really know the first thing about it other than you liked it, and Cynthia was able to use her unique abilities along with her incredible energy...

ADVAITIC TIMES

posted April 5th, 2012

We live in a world of non-duality. Things that seem separate, though distinct, are actually connected, as one, with the universe. We're set to release the new album from OM, Advaitic Songs, this coming July. Advaitic Songs is distinct from, yet linked with, 2009's God Is Good - while it maintains the singularity of purpose that informs the core sound of OM, every element of Advaitic Songs reaches further than before - it's the band's most focused, expansive, and imaginative document to...
