IT'S TIME TO BE CLEAR, SEE!??!!?!

posted September 10th, 2012

Now Here’s My Plan is currently laid out before you, an exquisite corpus of new Bonnie “Prince” Billy takes on old Bonnie cuts. Yet with the little pink album that could (and still might!), Wolfroy Goes To Town, a mere year in the rear-view, we still hum ‘long to those insistant, Wolfroy classics. One such, “Time To Be Clear,” was made into a single just recently. You may own the 7? single for it, The B-sides for Time To Be Clear.... (read more)

YOU'VE NEVER EVEN BEEN TO MALI?!?!

posted September 7th, 2012

OK, OK, neither have we - but the sounds and musics we've heard from Mali over the ages have continuously blown our minds; in particular, we're keen on the epic CD-only (fetishist) label, Yaala Yaala, who we've been toting, toasting, and boasting for years now, and who've knocked it out of the park with a rich mixture of sounds vibrating from that rich country. Now, to help raise awareness for the oppression many Malian villages are currently facing at the hands of fundamentalist Islamic... (read more)

CARAVANING AROUND WITH FAUN FABLES

posted September 4th, 2012

Let's warp time back to 2010, when the our collective dark was exceedingly vast, and remember: Faun Fables delivered us into the light, it was Light Of A Vaster Dark! How much better is your life, and your light, since Faun & Co. bestowed it upon you? If it's anything like us, then quite a bit! Naturally, in these ever-darker times, we must all try to gravitate towards the light.

In addition to making eternal music and saving our eternal lives, Dawn and Nils... (read more)

ENLIGHTEN UP TO DARK RADAR

posted August 30th, 2012

What is Trin Tran? Like a schizoid game of Pong, exploiting the tempo and the sounds – these ano/digital shards, iced with minimal/savant lyric shreds and crazed to the groove(s), could hail from Munich in ’77 or Cleveland, SF, LA, NYC or London in the late 70s. It could be from some weird dark corner of the early 80s…but fuck, it could be today too! And while today is indeed today, we're talking about Trin Tran, and these sounds were crazily made in...

EUROPEAN CAVE TOUR

posted August 28th, 2012

Coming soon to your local London dungeon, catacombs of Paris et al - it's the motorized machine fucks called CAVE, having fun fun fun on the European roadways this coming season. Jammed in a van with with their gear and a beer can (it's legal over there!) in each hand (this too!), the NEVERENDLESS tour is finally fit for Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Belgian and even Swiss ears and eyes. And noses! Can the CAVE band compete with Europe's au natural sensibilities? We find... (read more)

IS THIS VIDEO SIC?

posted August 27th, 2012

An' wot's a video, anyway? Does it embody the song or the does the song embody the video? Does it merely compliment the sound, or does tha visual describe the literal up-and-down of the words-n-music play? "Glyphs" may be working on a tune, or perhaps it's simply for people who took hippie showers. Or maybe it's about them? Wot's the burning effigy, is it representative of the ancient past? Who's the pretty boy and all his young dudes and the flag and drums and the... (read more)

THE BPB-ALL N' CHAIN

posted August 23rd, 2012

Now Here's My Plan is this summer's smashing Bonnie 'Prince' Billy mash-up of re-imagined tunes previously rattling barss around CBBPB (yes, that is Cell Block Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, thanks for askin') in various form n' fashion. But it's not the only Bonnie ball on the 2012 chain; naw, there's plenty to come, and part of a larger, long-distance lap back to Now Here's My Plan - cause, his hat's tippin' towards some lit-xcursions as the August embers fizzle. It's all just part of the... (read more)

LIFT OFF! WITH ASCENT!

posted August 21st, 2012

Despite the radical resistance from some internet wack-jobs, Ascent from Six Organs of Admittance made it out to the streets today, in a big-ass way! Six Organs involved with some NWO-type shit? We don't think so! And neither do Six Organs fans, cause we've already had to repress that nearly extinct format called the compact disc due to the first pass selling through. Resuscitate, tangible digital! Don't worry, the production team here at Drag City has ensured that there's no stock gap; no, all... (read more)

THE INNER FOLDS OF ARAW

posted August 20th, 2012

Ancient Romans was a blast, but who likes living in the extreme past? Not us, and Sun Araw neither - so for their next move, we've made peace in our time, with The Inner Treaty. Hay man, The Inner Treaty is something like the 6th Sun Araw album amongst a triple-handful of Araw-related ephemera over the past minute of infinity, and it's the second one delivered via the divining rod of Drag City via Cameron Stallones' Sun Ark record label. You understand that... (read more)

DOSING WITH RANGDA

posted August 15th, 2012

What's it been, a few days since you last listened to False Flag, Rangda's debut guillotine-machine shred-fest? Does Rangda stalk your dreams, inducing night terrors that wake you repeatedly, merely giving you another opportunity to spin the LP like the addict you've become? Yeah, you're hooked now, just like we planned, and just in time for the new Rangda wares we're peddling! The full dose, called Formerly Extinct, won't be available to you until September 18th. But like a good dealer, we're... (read more)
