Yes, Drag City is psyched, because in this fall of 2013, we are slowly, but completely, rising above over all others, and none shall survive our astonishing ascent. See? A better vibe already! But seriously, it's plain to see from any angle: we've got the BEST new records, BEST reissues, and sometimes even just the BEST t-shirts (like the Ty Sleeper tees (yes!
