Drag City on Spotify?!?


#1

Not sure what’s going on here, but the below playlist: This is Drag City, has links to Silver Jews, Smog and a whole load of other things which aren’t otherwise searchable on Spotify…

So if I search for Silver Jews, I get nothing. If I click on the artist name in the above playlist I can access all of their albums:

Hopefully not a glitch or a one off, but maybe a sign of things to come. Would make my day if true


Joanna Newsom now on streaming sites?

NICE

Interesting might be something up with the search cache updating because when I search silver jews no artists show BUT the songs populate and I can click through.

Saved all the smog and silver Jews stuff and they’re in my library now. got a bunch of them down loading into my offine albums playlist too so hopefully they’ll stay!


#5

An elaborate April fools?


#6

Wonder if this is the start of a staggered release of some Drag City onto Spotify? Finally able to listen to new Ty Segall.

I can see like seven Silver Jews records if I search by artist name.

But I’m getting the same thing with Smog - can only see 3-4 albums if I search, and I don’t think they’re the same Smog. But if I go in through the Drag City playlist I get more. So yeah, hopefully the albums being rolled out.

quite excited. bookmarking stuff and hoping it’s all still there when i get back to my computer in 3 days.


#9

I really hope so. But it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re messing around


#10

Nice! Going out for a drive along the coast in a bit, gonna listen to Held really loud!


#11

This is great news! Just seen that the Aerial M is on there too - lovely stuff!


#12

Still no I See A Darkness though :confused:


#13

got Sleeper on now <3

Oldham and Joanna Newsom etc must still be holding out, as artists individually not keen on streaming. Drag City must have given an opt out option.


#15

So what’s everyone’s favourite drag city releases then?


#16

Joanna seems to be on google play music as well… i’m only seeing the will oldham albums i’ve uploaded myself though.


#17

Nice to see the latest White Fence album up even if the one before is still missing


#18

YES! Brilliant news. Thanks for alerting us to this!
