LIARS GET PHYSICAL, GO BANANAS!

posted June 4th, 2014

As we approach the great white release date for Electric Brick Wall, Black Bananas fans everywhere are geeked and tweaked with the idea of a whole album that sounds like the slay-worthy advance single, "Physical Emotions."  Fuckin' dream on! It's not that nobody could realize an album like that - if anybody could, it would definitely be Jennifer and the band-anas - but they've got better things to do, like making Electric Brick Wall so high and mighty! If you're so into "Physical Emotions,"... (read more)

HEX WATCH, FOOLS!

posted May 30th, 2014

For you loyal readers out there in the e-aether (and, please God, listeners in the real world), you've already heard peep one 'bout this ultra-limited & damn-near hand-crafted platter that we very mysteriously call "Fool's Watch," b/w "Lord Gloves" (because mysteriously, those are the song titles). The basic spex: 2 SONG, 10", 45 RPM. Neil Michael Hagerty & The Howling Hex brought forth these two mini-epics from somewhere deep inside their hard-won collective identity; The Howling Hex with their trusty, rust-freeNew Border Sound...

PRIMO EUROPEAN ACTION! DRAG CITY ON FEST-QUEST

posted May 29th, 2014

Oceans, borders, guards, security check points, poison darts, voodoo - nothing can stop the foot soldiers of Drag City from breaking on through the Fourth Dimension with gifts and wisdom for the civilized people of this world we regard so curiously yet value! You can get these items here, by staying tuned into our ever-evolving (yet reassuringly basic) web presence; cool, cool - but nothing tops the essential rock n' roll - not to mention, human - experience, that of reaching out and fucking...

DON'T TELL THE DRIVER, MICK'S GOING ALL THE WAY TO EUROPE!

posted May 23rd, 2014

Mick Turner's double album from the end of last year really caused some rubbernecking! As well it should - because not only is Don't Tell The Driver a new conception in the music of Mick Turner (with regard to his own stuff as well as all the Dirty Three music he's contributed to over the years), but his latest album may very well be the first ever post-rock opera! Musically, it's the best thing he's ever done. And Mick did his time here in... (read more)

BORNE AGAIN

It’s May again for the 25th time in a world where there’s a Drag City roaming the earth. May once again – all of a sudden and yet surprising no one. So here we are and you are there; a place for everything and everyone in their place. We’ve gotten things done in “2014,” as always – but we’re still waiting, always waiting somehow. Waiting still for that day called tomorrow, and it never comes. Fool-like, we wait to see if... (read more)

SUMMA DAT SUMMER MAGIK

posted May 16th, 2014

Intense heat, a brew of nasty sonix crushed from a beer can, boiled and re-splashed into the face of n absurdly be-suited society - fuck seasons, Magik Markers melt it any old time of the year, come on! Still, where there's warmth there's fantasy, and Ambrogio, Nolan, and Shaw are full of both, coupling actinically with their deep-browed, dead-pan exteriors. Surrbendering to their trip is the best way for you to experience yours, and this summer, they're going to journey! The Midwest, Canada, and West... (read more)

FIRST OF DISMAY COMES IN LATE JULY THIS YEAR, THANKS TO NEIL HAMBURGER

posted May 14th, 2014

While we all long to feel the warmth and sunshine imminently approaching, nothing can mask the realism that Neil Hamburger brings to his "classic" "comedy" routines or to the songs to which he has become increasingly devoted to singing in recenty years. Dark times call for dark records, and that's why like it or not, this summer is when we'll be releasing First of Dismay - what were we supposed to do, wait until Christmas to bum everyone out with this? For the Hamburger fans... (read more)

BREAKING THROUGH THE BLANK SCREEN

posted May 8th, 2014

Dead Rider ripped up the roadways between Chicago and the East Coast just after the release of their blistered and festering new album, Chills On Glass, proving that you really can visit Dayton, Ohio, and manage to escape not only with all your fingers and toes, but actually sell a coupla rekkids while you're at it! Or perhaps it only works like that when you're providing as skin-peeling and terrifying of a sonic landscape as Dead Rider? Such a phenomenon got everyone thinking,... (read more)

THE GUARDIAN ANGEL OF BLACK BANANAS' "PHYSICAL EMOTIONS" PREMIERE

posted May 6th, 2014

BOOM! "Physical Emotions," the first sonic slab to fall from Black Bananas' Electric Brick Wall, is a revolutionary listen! Released as a physical (not to mention emotional) 7" single two weeks ago, the density of the "PE" jam on its own is so palpable it virtually creates a kinetic visual representation behind the listener's lids; but how to manifest the sound into something physically fitting for the actual eyes? The sounds found on Electric Brick Wall are constantly moving... (read more)
