Randazzo In Reels

posted February 25th, 2011

Just when we were wondering where Elisa Randazzo went off to, she appears 'round the bend brandishing a fresh new video for her song, "Circles," off one of 2010's most egregiously under-appreciated albums, Bruises & Butterflies. Full of sunny song and lightly lovelorn overtones, if there's one thing we know, it's how gooey you'll feel after watching. Desert, dancing and dresses billowing in the wind.. oh hell, just go fucking watch it yourself, creep!

Late February and all is swell! Amidst all the thundersnow, white-outs, slush-pack, and the eventual thaws, we find ourselves in tune with the nature underneath it all — blown-out, buffeted and half-frozen, but bolstered by all the water, ready to bloom again. Hell, we’re blooming now — and not just blooming idiots. Naw, there’s gold in these here chills, you just gotta get the pick outta yer nose and get it.

A NICE CHAT WITH DEATH

posted February 9th, 2011

If you're reading this from somewhere outside America, we're sorry - sometimes we lose perspective. We get swept up in the rush of excitement of all the activity close to home - but really, we're sailing the good ship Drag City all around the world! Every once in awhile an email or a photo or a bit of press reminds us that we're not just an American label, but one for the whole world. The latest such instance was this radio program from merrie old... (read more)
