DEAD RIDER, BLANK SCREEN, LIVE SHOWS!

posted February 13th, 2014

With bated breath, we (and we hope, you) are counting the minutes til the release of Chills On Glass - but in these crusty, rotting, black icy n' snowed up mid-winter days, time moves all too slowly. Dead Rider's approaching though - always there with a fiery (and helping) hand, they have brought a sensation-tingler of a video for the Chills On Glass jammer, "Blank Screen," to ebb our unnerving hunger!

Dead Rider, featuring the axe-wielding heroics of former U.S. Maple... (read more)

DEATH COMES IN THREES

posted February 12th, 2014

The rumors of our Death are greatly un-exagerrated! With all the portent of a polite throat-clearing, NPR on Monday premiered one freshly disenterred vintage Death jam, "North St." - but this is just the jagged tip of the iceberg that will be fully cutting into the hull of your life-ship this Spring! Yes, a whole LP of previously unheard recordings spanning the early and late lives of Death is set for release in April: Death III! Word! Death III is the spiritual end of... (read more)

The Drag City Newsletter! January 2014

ONE MORE CUP OF COFFEE

It's wintertime in America – polar winds howling atop six feet of snow with more on the way – and down below, the ground all around our (reasonably) weatherproofed ivory bunker is cold and hard. Not quite the dead of winter yet, but getting there! Still, you wouldn't know it from the level of activity here – the Drag City staff is here there and everywhere, bouncing off the walls, killing floors and dancing on the... (read more)

NEW MERSH: MARKETING NEW BUMS

posted February 4th, 2014

Hey, New Bums are rollin' in! Voices In A Rented Room arrives February 18th, for which we're already stoked, but on top of that these fucks just keep adding tour dates, which stokes us even more! Oh, and forgive us if we re-mention the "killer" video for "The Killers And Me" that hit the inter-webs a couple weeks back, but we just can't help it - what loveable fucks! Today, the Bums deliver something new altogether: a disturbingly addictive commercial for Voices In... (read more)

DEATH IN 2014. PARIS IS FIRST....

posted January 31st, 2014

If we could, we'd never stop bringing Death to you. Who wouldn't? A group of African-American brothers, who played hard/punk-rock in total obscurity in mid-70s Detroit, only to be discovered and celebrated 25 years later when a box of their 7" record, very few of which were made to begin with, entered the trader-scum market? WHAT! But you've seen the doc, right? If you haven't, flip on A Band Called Death - and after seeing that, you'll probly want to rock For the Whole World... (read more)

EUROPE LANDS BILL CALLAHAN IN THE FLESH

posted January 30th, 2014


Gosh, the last six months have seen a dubble load of Bill Callahan, ever since he dumped Dream River and dropped it's dubbed out companion LP, Have Fun With God (plus the "Expanding Dub" 12", you completest!). Having graced the USA with a Dream River tour last fall, he's all set now to make a real splash in Europe, where he'll tour for the next month or so of time infinite. Dream River was voted by many as album of the... (read more)

LOOK AT THESE BUMS

posted January 22nd, 2014

It's only mid-day and we're drunk - with the sound of New Bums! Coincidentally, they're drunk, too! Not only that, but while we prefer to lie hidden within the shadows of our intoxication, New Bums revel in the opportunity to expose themselves to any voyeur looking for a thrill. Hence, a new video! Cosy up with Messrs. Chasny and Quinn as they deliver "The Killers and Me," a noir-ish expedition into the New Bums' nightlife. Is it a party, or a... (read more)

BARELY REGAL, ALONG FOR THE RIDE

posted January 21st, 2014

Saddle up! Bonnie 'Prince' Billy regularly dons a fancy hat or two while riding, clamped on tight so that it don't fly off when he makes those unexpected right and left turns that his fans love so very much. This man-myth is shrouded in more mystery than perhaps even he can solve, and we're listening close, waiting for another veil to drop. Yet, underneath the layers, Bonny rides, like the rest of us, naked -but unlike the rest of us, unafraid. It's this "natural" appeal... (read more)

CAVE THE WORLD

posted January 20th, 2014

It's only been four months since the new CAVE album, and already CAVE has toured heavily and heartily through North America on the back of Threace. It was to be expected; Threace is their densest batch of jams yet to be released, not to mention their most danceable. A difficult balancing act for listener's ears, best to demonstrate to them in person. So CAVE's own backyard of America was cleaned up before taking their ever expanding depth of field to the other side of... (read more)

FRESH NEW SOUNDS... WOO DUNNIT AGAIN!

posted January 15th, 2014

Some of the softest and strangest sounds ever to arrive at our door step were also the most welcomed, and they come from a group known as Woo. Emboldened and emblazoned by the success of the recent reissue of It's Cosy Inside, Mark and Clive Ives, the nucleus of Woo, had a listen to hundreds of previously unreleased tracks recorded in the 70s and 80s to assemble their first new record in two decades, an album ripe with addictive and (deceptively) airy...
