“Sign Spinners”

From Natural Information Society and Bitchin Bajas’ Autoimaginary

DRAG CITY

Liner notes: Spectral keyboards, hypnotic bass lines, and lighter-than-air percussion make for a spooky-fun instrumental.

Behind the music: Joshua Abrams launched Natural Information Society to showcase the guimbri, an African lute. Cooper Crain started Bitchin Bajas as a low-key alternative to his techno band Cave.

Check it out if you like: The Doors’ “Riders on the Storm” (minus Jim Morrison).

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
