DRAG CITY TAKES YOU THERE: PRIMAVERA RECAP

posted June 13th, 2016

Hey, we get it: you want to be everywhere at once but you can't afford it, so you spend all your time trolling, scrolling and blowing down some internet rabbit hole until you tire yourself out and fall into a restless slumber. Then you wake up, discover reality remains unchanged, and you get virtual once again. Well, we can't save you from your own fleshy existence, but we are dedicated to helping you live your dreams vicariously through others, and directing you where you need... (read more)

HISSING IT ON DOWN THE LINE

posted June 9th, 2016

Hey Purling Hiss fans - your beacon of light in the excesses and deluge of common-blahs is always here for you. His name is Mike Polizze, and although Purling Hiss has shone on us with precious few glimpses of new material since Weirdon, the Hiss blisters and bubbles with twisted excitement from the excrement at ALL times, and NOW is actually no different. See, earlier this year Purling Mike went Hiss-solo on a string of dates opening for Kurt Vile, and that range... (read more)

WAND THE ROAD AGAIN (DREAM PASSAGE)

posted June 2nd, 2016

DAYUM! It's been a while since Wand have dropped a new record or video! 250 whole days have come and gone since the release of 1000 Days, and there was a tour and a video awhile back, but then nothing! Thankfully our Wandlessness has been noted by none other than the band, who have waved their magic you-know-what, and-poof, we have a video AND some shows! Picked from the still ripe 1000 Days, "Passage of the Dream" receives the video treatment with... (read more)

BONNY AND BAJAS' EXCELLENT ADVENTURE!

posted May 27th, 2016

The planets are about to align! In a short few weeks, the cosmic convergence of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Bitchin Bajas materializes in the Midwest and on the East coast for a solid batch of utterly unique live performances.  Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties, their mind melding collaborative effort, fuses new age synthesizers and gentle instrumentation with softly sung fortunes of goodwill. The live sound of Bonny Bajas is modular, free flowing, and flexible in the air---a living, breathing, expanding and contracting body... (read more)

Festival season is in full effect, and White Fence have broken through the perimeter to take center stage for all the innocents to enjoy. Yeah, ...For The Recently Found Innocent... (read more)

CANDY SAM: TY SEGALL'S SWEET VISUAL TREAT! PLEASE ENJOY BEFORE TOUR

posted May 24th, 2016

Following a most sketchy tour of the United States in February and March which included stops at populist TV programs The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CONANTy Segall and The Muggers went underground. Coinciding with warmer weather elevating the city's ripe sewer stench, they've re-emerged, grimier and bleaker than ever - even more suitable for the great unwashed they typically attract on the road. The road of which we now speak runs through the European continent, as Ty and his Muggers are... (read more)

CATE LE BON PONDERS THE MEANING OF LOVE

posted May 23rd, 2016

As Cate Le Bon departs the US following her triumphant national tour to spend the summer playing dates across Europe, we have the pleasure of unveiling a new video from her acclaimed album Crab Day!

"Love Is Not Love" is directed by the wonderfully idiosyncratic Turner Prize nominee Phil Collins (just like the short film)! The video, shot in Berlin, sees Cate being joined by an elite troupe of dancers to engage in some seriously avant-garde yet clinically synchronized dance routines! Buckle up... (read more)

TRAVEL TO SHAKEDOWN STREET WITH BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY

posted May 23rd, 2016

Bonnie "Prince" Billy aims to steal your face with an epic, live rendition of the soft-yet-funky "If I Had a World to Give" on CBS' This Morning! The Dead are often a point of contention between music fans---is it hippie drivel for drug addled baby boomers or a visionary group who have contributed more to modern music of all genres than the Velvets!? Well, wherever you stand, one thing we can all agree upon is that Bonnie 'Prince' Billy rules!

Bonnie's intrepid voice and... (read more)
