WATCH AND YOU WILL HEAR "QUAIL AND DUMPLINGS" IN YOUR EAR

posted September 15th, 2011

"Prince" Boniface "Bonnie" Billy goes by many names—St. Nick, Lucifer, AKA Joe— but close friends call him by his "nick name", which is short for Nicolas Nameham, which is long for NiNa , which is backwards for aNiN, which sounds a bit like "anon" which is short for "anonymous", and he prefers to keep it that way. Only recently has he come clean against the wall of speculation concerning his mysterious origins.

Which brings us to the... (read more)

ADRIFT WITH A REGIFT

posted September 14th, 2011

Baby Dee is no stranger to the Europe, where she's done the big tour thing, the small tour thing, the band-leader thang and the solo thing (not to mention the side-mouse thing). It's old hat, as a vaudevillian like Dee might say. A girl's gotta keep things interesting, non? Absolutely. So when Dee embarks on another hefty jaunt across the Atlantic in a couple of days, she'll kick it off with a performance at Kunstencentrum BELGIE, at an art exhibit consisting entirely of Baby...

BONNIE BRINGETH QUAIL & DUMPLINGS

posted September 13th, 2011

What strange crop doth the Indian summer season harvest? Behold - our soil births a living song or three! And just any old living music, but Bonnie 'Prince' Billy meats, fresh, pink and raw, just how you likes 'em! These first golden(-pink) fruit(-meat)s are yours for the swiping: "Quail & Dumplings," a digital-only single! If you haven't guessed, it guess it up now - "Quail & Dumplings" is from that extremely forthcoming Wolfroy Goes to Town album, the new Bonnie 'Prince'... (read more)

IF I WUJ, WUJ YOU?

posted September 9th, 2011

It’s a Friday and you’re thinking, “There just aren't any words to describe how I feel!” We know the shit is tough for you these days what with curfew and algebra, but luckily CAVE has the vocabulary to fill your gaps. CAVE has a new album called NEVERENDLESS and it’s full of words, just not in the songs (as a matter of fact, the songs mostly don't have words in them!) Take “WUJ” (please!) – it’s effortless, makes your face look funny and... (read more)

EXTENZE-ING THE FLOODPLAIN

posted September 8th, 2011

Criss-crossing over the Atlantic fresh off his home-run tour of the USA, Six Organs of Admittance and clan (you may not actually "see" the clan, but trust us, those fetishists are there) landed today in Portugal, where they'll take on the crowds of Porto and Lisbon the next two days. Historically Portugal and Six Organs have had a super chill relationship - 'member the song, "Lisboa," from School of The Flower? Yeah, that's Lisboa, Portugal, little dogie. But maybe you knew that, anyway!... (read more)

MORE SHIRT FROM THE SOURCE FAMILY

posted September 7th, 2011

Good news comes in twos, especially from the Source Family. For those of you who want to fly your "I love the 70's religio-cults" flag front and center, we've got just the item for you - two times, thanks to those loveable Aquarian freaks from the Source Family. As you know, it's been thirty-six years since their leader, Father Yod, passed from his body, which led to the dispersal of YaHoWha's sons and daughters across the face of the earth, leaving...

FALL FORWARD WITH AZITA

posted September 2nd, 2011

AZITA, here with us all seasons, has embraced the turning leaves, put her fall foot forward, and harvested a brand new album of piano songs, Disturbing the Air. It's been since 2009's How Will You that we last heard an album proper from the Chicago songstress, and that is simply too long for someone with such finely constructed tunes and such command over the performances of same. AZITA can't help it - as a talented artist, she's remained busy, complete with stints acting... (read more)

BIG IN BRAZIL

posted September 1st, 2011

If you're big in Brazil, it stands to reason you ought to be big just about anywhere - after all, there are only a few countries bigger than Brazil scattered around our globe. Alas, size don't really work this way - not when talking country-size anyway. And anyway, Drag City artists are not exactly "big" in Brazil, which is too bad, since it's also one of the grandest countries on earth as well. We just found at that somebody knows who we are...

CALLAHAN TALKS NEWBURY

posted August 29th, 2011

2011 will always be remembered fondly by all of us here at Drag City, and not just because it turned out to be last year before The Great Disaster. As always, there are many amazing records we've been so psyched to put out this year (in fact, about twice as many as usual) - but certainly one of the most mind-bending release for us has been the Mickey Newbury reissue set, An American Trilogy. I mean, these are records that first came out... (read more)
