This is a record released in August 2023 by Philadelphia's experimental pop duo draag me on Doom Trip, a leftfield dance label in LA.

It unfolds at a dizzying pace, but includes 15 tracks of experimental electronic pop and glitch hip-hop that are strangely catchy.

*If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Philadelphia-based draag me is music for after-hours internet wormholes and nighttime bus rides. Bloodshot eyes, rain-soaked greyscale city outside the window. All this. is told through loops of samples, sinuous waves of distortion, moments of resonance with keyboards and guitars, and this is draag me's second follow-up to 2020's "I am gambling with my life" (and a collaboration with Wicklin). It is the aesthetic terroir of "Lord of the shithouse", which is the first co-starring work).


"Lord of the shithouse" came true during the pandemic.Locked at home, Schwartz and Wicklin emailed each other song ideas.And in the space of a year, it turned into a song where file sharing was fully realized.The songs left on the cutting room floor of Spirit's groundbreaking record, ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH, have been rearranged, made weirder, and submerged in the world of draag me in the process.But it's not wrong. draag me is not a side project of beehive, but a project that exists in its own whirlpool.Psychedelic pop, industrial music, R&B, and electronic.No label needed here: "lord of the shithouse" is a genre-bending record, one that has a sheer clarity in its experimental tendencies.

The opening "like a nuisance" sounds like you're drinking cocaine and Mentos in a middle school parking lot.The buzzer of an old rotating telephone unhooked.Synths and percussion collide with a roar of strings.And in the middle stage, the rapper CRASHprez appears, freely associating. Rapping "Smile it's all recorded," "I'm lost like all importance/it's all performance."His verse is one of four featuring on the album.Schwartz and Wilshrin wanted to give the four artists the opportunity to improvise and create their own art within the space of the song. "blade in view" features fellow Philadelphia-based experimental weirdo Body Meat.The song is woozy and moves at a drugged pace.

Similarly, "death cult" emphasizes the exhilaration of walking outside and feeling that the trees around you are floating, and that the sun is about to plunge into a midday eclipse. "nightclub" is a bad vibe after a fucking day that ends with you staying up until 4am in an algorithmically curated YouTube hole. A lot of Lord of the shithouse is like this.I'm interested in the vague, I'm interested in capturing emotions and gluing them to cardboard like dead bugs.Instead of looking for a story in the 40 minutes of the record, look for the energy that exists in the abstract.This energy is highly managed and painstakingly controlled.

Doom Trip:

"Philly-based draag me, the project of Spirit of the Beehive's Zack Schwartz and Corey Wichlin, is music for after hours internet wormholes, bus rides at night. Your eyes are bloodshot, the city from outside your window is grayscale, wet with rain.

"lord of the shithouse" materialized during the pandemic. Schwartz and Wichlin, both stuck at home, sent emails to each other with ideas for songs. And over the course of a year, file sharing turned into fully realized tracks. cutting room floor of Spirit's landmark record "ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH", got rejiggered, made stranger, and put into the draag me universe along the way. But make no mistake — draag me isn't a Spirit of the Beehive side project, it is a project that exists in a swirl of its own. The songs on this record are far more knotty, circling the drain of psychedelic pop, industrial music, r&b, and electronic. There's no need for labels here: "lord of the shithouse" is a record free of genre, and in its penchant for experimentation there is a real sense of clarity.

Opener “like a nuisance,” is like coke and mentos in the middle school parking lot. A buzz of an old rotary phone, yanked off the hook. Synths and percussion crash into a strident flourish of strings. rapper CRASHprez comes in, free associating. “Smile it's all recorded,” he raps, “I'm lost like all importance/it's all performance.” His verse is one of four features on the record. own lyrics, Schwartz and Wilchlin wanted to give these artists the chance to improvise, to make their own art within the space of the song. “blade in view,” features Body Meat, a fellow Philly-based experimental weirdo. , moving at a drugged-out pace.

“death cult,” similarly underscores that wooziness, of walking around outside and feeling like the trees around you are floating, that the sun could burst into a midday eclipse at any moment. “nightclub,” is a comedown, a bad vibe after a shitty day that ends with staying up until four in the morning inside of an algorithm-curated YouTube hole. Much of "lord of the shithouse" is like this: interested in being nebulous, at capturing a feeling and pining it to a piece of cardboard like a dead bug. Don't look for a narrative over the record's forty minutes, look for these energies that exist within abstraction. And these energies are highly curated, labored over, controlled.
