Bonnie Billy, the man, the myth, the Will, the way, the “Prince” they call him….has revealed a new behemoth of an album formatted to LP/CD/CAS on Drag City, thusly entitled Singer’s Grave a Sea of Tongues, to be released on September 23rd. Makes sense, right? I know. Watch the video for more puzzlement!
“A 7.8 review on Pitchfork does not a dynasty make,” said some famous historic figure, (probably Socrates), Ty Segall set the record straight with the release of Manipulator his new Drag City 2xLP/CD/CAS. It’s an absolute ripper.
No. It rips rippers. Guaranteed better than any of the cover songs that Aracade (*yawn*) Fire have embarrassed themselves and their audiences with on their 2014 tour . It’s a suicide-ride of an album, the way they used to make ‘em – full to the brim of equal parts sweat, swagger, & sweetness. Make that equal parts ROCK and ROLL (remember that?). I mean, even Henry Rollins read the review on Pitchfork and “was disgusted!”
Everybody. Listen to me. Stop what you are doing **right now**. It’s unimportant, I guarantee it.
You need to watch this video of the one and only Ty Segall performing the TOTAL UNABASHED CUT entitled “Feel” off of his new Drag City 2xLP/CD/CAS, Manipulator. And he shows us all EXACTLY HOW IT IS MO-FO’N DONE.
Watch and learn, folks, watch and learn. Get ready for Manipulator to rip through your brainbox on August 26th.
Jennifer Herrema’s dulcet tones are no stranger to these ears. Whether with the (al)mighty Royal Trux or RTX, the lady still knows a-thing-or-two-about-a-thing-or-two. Pitchfork’s got the knowledge as well – they awarded Black Bananas new LP/CD/CAS, Electric Brick Wall, out now on Drag City, a 7.7 review this morning. And if that’s not enough (or is it enuff?) to tickle the innermost of your ears, check out the video for “Powder 8 Eeeeeeeeight” below.
From the ‘Fork:
“Electric Brick Wall is a far more coherent synthesis of those disparate influences, and possibly her strongest record since the Trux’s peak. The album’s female-fronted pileup of overblown drum machines and retro guitar riffage shares surface similarities with Sleigh Bells, but instead of that band’s shimmering, pixellated gleam, Black Bananas give off a debauched, grimy aura. When they evoke the Sunset Strip in the ’80s it’s not the fictionalized version served up by the Motley Crüe wannabes of the time but the seedy real-life version,with rumbling rap beats mixed in for kicks.”
