Make Your House an Awarehouse

posted October 22nd, 2010

Drag City has long felt driven by the Spirit Being, and each of us feel strongly the silver cord connecting our astral body to our other body. It's this non-ego related spirituality that has brought us in touch with the Source Family, who cultivated a lifestyle of spiritual living beginning at their famed restaurant, The Source, back in the 1960s. The restaurant was a fixture for those seeking enlightenment in Hollywood at the time (tough task!), many of whom joined the ranks to meditate... (read more)

Humping The Netflix Cue

posted October 21st, 2010

America's video rental service of choice, Netflix, has all the previous Korine films - Mister Lonely, Julien Donkey-Boy and Gummo. They offer the film he wrote the script for, Kids. They're also making available the following films: Antichrist, Irreversible, Emmanuel in America, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and all the Jackass films. What do all these films have in common? They all feature more full-frontal nudity, on-screen sex, violence, rape and/or murder than is featured in Trash Humpers... (read more)

Accidental Joke = Intentional Poster For Sale

posted October 19th, 2010

Drag City is no stranger to posters; heck, we make posters for just about every new album we're ever released, many of them available for purchase, for your personal archives or personal wall/shrine. And while we'd never be surprised if any one of our posters appeared in a fine art gallery or two, we've never quite made one with such immediate possibilities as with The Accidental Joke. When we discovered the innocent(ly twisted), humorous and confounding visuals of Baim & Lazar, we were... (read more)

BUMMER IN THE (INDIAN) SUMMER

Hello, hello – Drag City is back in the house – through the back of course, we know a guy and don’t have time for the queue out front. Well, we’re here. Now what? Should we talk about the weather? As most of you Americans know, it was one crazy-hot (sexy-cool) summer this year, but what we’ll remember (aside from the gallons of sweet-stinky sweat) from it was the wonderful denouement to the whole mess that we experienced here in...

Planning Your Party Weekend!

posted October 15th, 2010

Friday is upon us, and Drag City is in control of your weekend-- it's your destiny, really, to spend at least one of the next two evenings with a Drag City artist you love-- why else would so many of them be playing shows? What better way to party than by attending one (or more!) of these killer shows where you can let it out and keep it loose? Don't you like that?

Tonight marks the end of a wild string of Howling Hex shows,... (read more)

A Digi-Single Gift From Bonnie 'Prince' Billy

posted October 14th, 2010

What would we do without singles to get us through the dregs (i.e., peers) of the day? They're beautiful, often hard to find, perfect little boutique artifacts that engage and tantalize, offering a peak into the musical world of exciting artists both youthful and geezed-out alike. And how fuckin' cute are they as portable, digital files, especially when sweetly and sensuously plucked from the giving, bountiful Bonnie 'Prince' Billy tree of songs? Epically cute, baby! On this day in 2010, Bonnie delivers us a special... (read more)

THE HARD STUFF

posted October 12th, 2010

Starting today, and for ONE WEEK ONLY, Drag City has partnered with iTunes to offer special rates on THE HARD STUFF. That's right, though the suits at iTunes wouldn't allow use of the words THE HARD STUFF on their precious web site, we're going to freely call it that wherever else we please! While we hardly like to lump artists or records together (each should stand on their own, you know?), the fact that these albums have a common thread is undeniable. They're all... (read more)

Digital Krayola

posted October 8th, 2010

The Red Krayola's Black Snakes and Three Songs On A Trip To the United Statesare back on planet earth in digital-only format after a sabbatical of years! As the early 80s became the mid-80s, Mayo Thompson guided The Red Krayola with Art & Language into a whimsical third phase reliant on danceable beats and a less didactic approach to the discussion. The title track of Black Snakes along with "Future Pilots," and "Ratman, the Weightwatcher," were classics from this period, while "A Portrait of... (read more)

Death Lives Tonight

posted October 7th, 2010

After the 2009 release of their never-seen-the-light-of-day album, ...For The Whole World To See, Death-mania seemed to just creep right up behind us and fold us into its robe with a cool, bone-ified hand. The insides are hot and sticky with legions of punker-than-you Death fans rocking out and fisting the air, a refreshing bunch of winners ready to hit the club and make it happen. Who'da thunk that by this time in 2010, some 35 years after the infamous conception of their masterpiece,... (read more)

CAVE European Tour Kick Off

posted October 6th, 2010

Some bands tour, others DOMINATE. Perhaps envisioning a Napoleonic invasion of epic proportions when booking this thing, the CAVE European tour has ballooned into a nitrous-filled cloud set to cover the mainland, Scandinavia, and even the United Kingdom from now til mid-December (dates still being added, daddy). For those of you fucked up enough to have missed out on purchasing Pure Moods, the new CAVE 12” EP and first for Drag City, this is your chance as they’ll be toting a bunch in their... (read more)
