SIX ORGANS IN ASCENT

posted May 16th, 2012

For all of us earthbound creatures, the firmament with its revolutions of planets and stars, determining the spread of tides and the length of days and the drift of the calendar and the juxtaposition of our very personalities (astrology-wise, we're speaking) is a marvelous muse to have. Hanging over us day in and out, framed in the unattainable and yet somehow soul-linked to our own humble path across the face of this planet. There's an element of the uncanny to all of this and the... (read more)

posted May 14th, 2012

If you're like us here at Drag City, you're looking high and lowbrow for something you can call entertainment. Well, we've got you covered for at least one day in the apparently ceaseless march of days that we have dubbed "the future." To wit: next Tuesday, May 29 Housing Works Bookstore will inaugurate The Lowbrow Reader Reader’s official commencement of existance on and off discerning bookshelves with a performance of "The Lowbrow Reader Variety Hour" at its Soho shop. While the lineup of... (read more)

YOU SEE I SEE A DARKNESS VID?

posted May 10th, 2012

I see a new Bonny risin'! Coming this summer is an EP of new versions of Bonny classics from years gone by - fresh-minted by his constant companions of late, Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiely and Angel Olson. Before you roll your eyes, and ask "Greatest Palace Music too?" get an eye-full of the rolling going on in the Ben Berman-directed video, which premiered on the good ol' New York Times (remember them?) and is now...

DWARR IN DTRENCHES

posted May 8th, 2012

We wouldn't call it Starting Over, but we're about to let the Animals out of the cage, yu-huck! Dwarr lives. Dwarr's LIVE! It's gospel truth, brother! You thought the records were the only Dwarr experience to be had? Don't be a non-believer! Dwarr is risen and for the first time EVER is prepared to hit the road! Animals and Starting Over are masterpieces of loner metal, birthed from an inner darkness, reaching fruitless for the eternal light, bathed in murk, dementia and just... (read more)

OM VISION

posted May 7th, 2012

Tour diaries are integral artifacts for musicians and music fans alike. Often consumed as literature in book form, like that of the self-publishing, Morrison-of-the-80s former 'Flag front person, or as online hoot-action like that of fellow SST graduate Watt, they're literal indulgences by and for maniacs struggling through a universe they simultaneously strive to conquer, embrace, and avoid. Not to say that OM are maniacs, or struggling in anyway! But they're certainly a conquering force, simultaneously embracing all in their path - physical and spiritual.... (read more)

THE SOUND OF SILENCIO

posted May 3rd, 2012

Don't turn around, cause Laetita Sadier is back! Two years freshin' since Laetitia's solo debut, The Trip (dang, 2 whole years?... whatevs, we been trippin all this time!), the Sadier marquee now reads, Silencio! No, it's not a request for you to put a cork in it so someone else can speak; rather, Silencio is an invitation to sample silence, to listen to how silence resonates with truth. You hear us? Silencio is born from a natural need for stillness, as well as... (read more)

SIX ORGANS BLAST OFF TOWARDS EUROPE

posted May 2nd, 2012

Say, brother can you spare a dime? We've bet the Drag City farm on 2012 being a big year for Six Organs of Admittance and that leaves our dime-bag empty at present. But it's gonna come in a winner in time, don't you worry. Whether you inferred this already from our DC-prescribed daily digital horoscope or not, perhaps you're still too deeply consumed with yourself to realize any of the greater goals we, the human race, the denizens of Drag City, are meant to pursue...

HAIR ACROSS AMERICA

posted April 30th, 2012

Spring time's for tourin'! Last week, your patient attitude towards winter was rewarded with blooming Hair, from Ty Segall & White Fence. This week, the blossoms are fruiting. Sounds weird, but no - the baby born from Ty's & (White) Tim's (Fence) labor needs to grow, in space, in the free world- on the baptizin' road! The massive touring of Ty Segall & White Fence begins in Portland, OR, this Thursday, May 3, before going way out... (read more)

FREE! SELF-INFLICTED INVASIVE ADVENTURE TIME

posted April 26th, 2012

No innovation can avoid imitation in our trust-bust America; therefore, following in the paths of such luminaries as Thomas Edison, pork, the Negro Leagues, artificial sweetener and the U.S.S.R., we take a step towards saturation. There we go again, watering down the effectiveness of yet another mode of communication! What the fuck’d we go and do that for? Well, so far no one has used the QR-code to its full capacity, and Drag City is always of the opinion that a balloon’s beauty can only... (read more)
