Classic Day – Longing For Touch

In the discussion for what is truly the best Radiohead record in substance, tone, and overall delivery, the conversation always personally led straight back to OK Computer. The way that record could make something as serious as a suicide feel as if it was… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Longing For Touch”

Classic Day – In The Doorway

Classic Day – The Wall Falls            

In one of the orchestrated times that falls from the incredibly under-loved artist Lou Reed, Berlin is the third solo record and for good reason belongs cemented like fragments of the wall.

Classic Day – White Moth

Always seeming to be nearby in the cesspit of the internet’s realm of music, Ty Segall’s third studio record Melted is nearly the perfect lunch break of sound. Through 30 minutes over 11 tracks, Melted has Segall bouncing from being the manipulative czar that… Continue Reading “Classic Day – White Moth”

Classic Day – Legacy Of Brutality

Classic Day – Funeral March

While most of the memories of Chet Baker come from his ability to protrude excellence and dominance from his trumpet, on his 1969 composition Albert’s House, however, is more fitting for a funeral than a summer of life. Coming off a horrific beating after… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Funeral March”

Classic Day – Band Of Gypsys

“I should have quit you,” describes Jimi Hendrix over the enthusiastic and almost chaotic howls of guitar strings and percussive crashes on “Killing Floor.” While the record Live At Monterey might be a release that comes far after Hendrix’s death in 1970, the recording… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Band Of Gypsys”

Classic Day – 25TaLyfe

Who could have known that 25 years later, serving a capital offense for lyrical murder, comes GZA The Genius with Liquid Swords and blades lined with opponent’s blood.

Classic Day – Betray

Classic Day – Second Time Around

The Underground Kings or just simply UGK might have had only two lyricists working together, but the sound that exemplified from their vocals and backing production is like jumping into a time machine. Especially on their second studio record, Super Tight which is slowed… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Second Time Around”

While the following record Songs Of Experience was already featured here, the… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Kaleidoscopic Death”

🅩 WEEK OF FRANK ZAPPA – DAY TWO 🅩

Classic Day – Flowers Bloom

Where the Zamrock phase that struck Africa in the 1970s, combining both the authenticity of traditional African sound and stirring the melting ability of psychedelic concept orchestrated something engaging and unique.

It may have never attracted the public’s attention in the original 1967 release, but The Velvet Underground & Nico’s self-titled debut record is the album to be played at your burial.
