After gradually adding releases for the past couple of months, nearly all of indie label Drag City’s long un-streamable catalogue, covering its entire 28 year tenure, is now available exclusively on Apple Music. Spotify, on the other hand, still only boasts “The Muppet Show Theme” from the 2011 Muppets movie when you search “Joanna Newsom.”
In a press release, the label clarified that the “entire(ish)” catalog was available, though it’s unclear how much, and what exactly, is missing.
“Change is sometimes good (or at least that’s we thought after 2008 election – hopefully there isn’t a lesson somewhere in there) and with 650+ titles currently flowing in our ever-expanding library you’ll never have to listen to ANYTHING ELSE ever again,” the label said. “Now that’s change WE can believe in!
Apple subscribers can sample all of your old Silver Jews, Bonnie “Prince” Billy/Palace Music/Will Oldham, Smog, and Six Organs of Admittance favorites, or bang new classics from the likes Jessica Pratt and Cate LeBon.
