OMING TO EUROPE SOON!

posted October 23rd, 2015

The trio of Al Cisneros, Emil Amos, and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe maintain a singularity of purpose that is the core of all OM records and performances, but no single reason can account for the comprehensive nature of their evolution. Where God is Good was the first step in a more ornate and sophisticated direction for OM, Advaitic Songs achieved a level of composition that would've been impossible to foresee. The release of their subsequent dubplates further enlightened all who listened (and... (read more)

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER! OCTOBER 2015

posted October 23rd, 2015

NOBODY'S FALL BUT OURS

Let the wind blow! Even in the damp-infused tropic-locales of our venerable Northern Hemisphere, seasons are still changing somehow. Once again, everything is dying - and not a moment too soon! While Drag City proudly represents All Nations (and all the contradictions they imply), everyone comes from somewhere - and so we can't deny the woody, windswept essence of our mid-northern roots, which require quarterly herd-thinnings by that most judicious of hunters, Ma Nature! Out on the... (read more)

posted October 15th, 2015

Hark The Silence is more than just an album by Japan's premiere pschedelic classic rock band, The Silence (led by Masaki Batoh), it's a transcendent performance that travels enormous distances and captures live energies in astonishing studio sounds. Recorded entirely on 24-track analogue tape, Hark The Silence has loads of textured sounds, both heavy and light, that ascend into space and explore new possibilities for the band.

Everything in the universe accessible to The Silence may be found in the "Ancient Wind"... (read more)

RIDE THE 8TH FLOOR ELEVATORS TO SEE MAYO THOMPSON

posted October 8th, 2015

Greene Naftali is pleased to present a solo exhibition, entitled 8th Floor, of never before seen work by Mayo Thompson, the first exhibition exclusively devoted to his visual art. Since cofounding the formative avant-garde, psychedelic rock collaborative Red Krayola in 1966, Thompson has operated from a position of resistance and critical negativity, two themes outlined in the manifesto published on the occasion of the band's participation in the 2012 Whitney Biennial. Overturning conventions of authorship and genre in favor of collaborative working models,... (read more)

OBEY! SAYS DOPE BODY

posted October 7th, 2015

We all know what rock and roll offered a 20th century boy, but here in the nu century, it's clear that Dope Body are the perfect amalgam of what makes rock today. Savagely contorting while pulling the hair of their influences' sounds, Dope Body chew up and spit it out with focused ferocity, making modern punk rock at it's most lethal. A synthesis of screaming riffs, brooding lyrics and digital trash, backed by a loping, tumbling  rhythm section that absolutely never lets them down, Dope... (read more)
