DRAG CITY LIMITS PRESENTS: BLUES CONTROL

posted December 14th, 2012

December may be nature's way of telling us, 'soon we'll freeze,' but fear not - Blues Control continue to bring the heat and the light to you throughout the winter! "Fresh" off a tour with Six Organs of Admittance to close out the year of our Mayan calendar, 2012, the do-oh are set to hit the road again over on the other side - 2013 (yes, it is happening)- supporting their socks-knocked-offering Valley Tangents album through January, February and March across these ol' United States...

BATHING IN WATER ON MARS WITH PURLING HISS

posted December 12th, 2012

It takes balls to let Purling Hiss get in your face- their records are a half-corroded, screaming roar of high-end guitars crushed together, obliterating vocals and drums with their singular assault. Well, if you've got balls, get ready to swing 'em! With Water On Mars, Purling Hiss have broken out of the basement, run through the bedroom and are now loose, out in the streets, blasting one of the great guitar albums in the past couple minutes. Yes, Water On Mars, from the... (read more)

THE BEST OF THE HOWLING HEX

posted December 6th, 2012

No, it's not just a clever name and it ain't know compilation, either. Is it the best, new Howling Hex record ever? Depends on how closely you've been listening along the way! Rest assured, it's absolutely the place holder in which, after all the incantations of the band to date, The Howling Hex stands thus far, at this moment: a border sound that bubbled in the southernmost regions of New Mexico for years before recently re-situating to the thin atmospheres of Denver, Colorado. Undeniably, Howling... (read more)

YOU NEED TO KNOW CHRIS DARROW

posted December 4th, 2012

Rock history from the 60's is filled with side trips and familiar names mixed with more trips involving even more names, sometimes less known. One of those names still owed a piece of your mind is California picker, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Chris Darrow. A founding member of the west coast Kaleidoscope, he pursued a solo endeavor after the release of their second album, A Beacon From Mars. A part of the glassy wave crashing across America through the 60s, Chris was hearing the... (read more)

THE SCENT OF BONNY

posted November 30th, 2012

Got a skin-sniff'n smell fetish? Are you like us, spending random evenings wishing to be surrounded by warm, dank body oders in the dirty clothes hamper at Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's house? You know what he sounds like, you know what he looks like, the next logical step is to find out what he smells like, right? Right, well, now you can, and even enjoy the pleasure of smelling like Bonnie yourself, any place you want - in the comfort of your own home, or,... (read more)

WHAT, WEAR? ACCELERATOR!

posted November 29th, 2012

We insist, actually. America's sons and daughters, come get Trux'd upon, fresh off the re-release of 1998's party countdown to 2012, Accelerator. The music fits like a glove, but that's on the inside - what you gonna put on your icean humanoid-bod? How about the fresh hot tee with a vintage cree, the authentic article (of clothing), the original Accelerator T-shirt, risen from the Royal Trux tomb. Slip into it now, just as you've begun to wear out your LP copy of... (read more)

SCOUT'S OUT, VID'S ID! WE HAB A CODE...

posted November 28th, 2012

Scout Niblett is BACK, baby! And it's about TIME! She's got a new 7" that features steppin' out like you might never've even THOUGHT Scout Niblett was inclined towards and it's IN STORES NOW. Called "No More Nasty Scubbs", this record plays suspiciously like the record of a woman whose been burned at the hands of a man - but that can't be true! Not our Scout? Anyway, she plays the scorned love to the hilt, with help from source material from Janet... (read more)

SIX ORGANS ASCENT: NEXT STOP, PLANET AMERICA, WITH CONTROL

posted November 21st, 2012

The Six Organs of Admittance intergalactic tour-smission is coming in, as the beam glides from European lands back to the pilgrim shores of America! The full throttle, metal 6OOA-ship (yes, it's a fucking fire-breathing shreddy rock band from hell, not some acoustic dirge or arty-duo. Lazy journalists, take note!) is captained by one Ben Chasny, but his crew has changed for this mission- the band has expanded to a four-piece, including Casey from Major Stars on drums and John from Magic Markers on...

KNAPP "EVERMORE" AND THEN SOME!

posted November 20th, 2012

Whoa, have we reached the near-end of November already? Feels like just yesterday we released the debut album from Sophia Knapp, Into The Waves, to critical and metaphysical praise. But here we are, 9 months and 3 videos later, with yet another killer video from Sophia's magical LP, this time for the song, "Evermore."

A collaboration between Sophia Knapp and filmmaker/director Antonio Sobral on 8mm film during an art residency outside of Rio de Janeiro, "Evermore" was... (read more)
