Pre-order Information

Please note that pre-order release dates are estimates based on the latest information we have from our suppliers. Changes or delays are possible.

Experimental musician Chris Corsano makes his solo debut on the Drag City label with a new LP entitled The Key (Became the Important Thing [and Then Just Faded Away]). Known widely for his drum work in ensembles with the likes of Bill Orcutt, Bill Nace, Paul Flaherty, and many other notable figures in the world of exploratory guitar, Corsano has also occasionally stepped out on his own. The Key is built up from a unique practice of stringing silicone tightly across a snare drum until the sound resonates. These sessions combined with overdubs congeal into gorgeous soundscapes that recall everything from psychedelic electronica to tense post-punk.
