Classic Day – 10 Year Curve

This is just becoming an excuse to listen to this record on repeat for a week straight and then write down exactly why it is such an important piece in musical history. In the same way that cultures look at The Beatles’ records as…

Classic Day – Disaster Artists

While hindsight is always a perfected, crystal clear envisioning of 20/20 vision, being stuck in the moment is an entirely different story. For a band as animalistic and coined as “raw” as The Stooges, their recordings will never do the justice of energetic explosions…

Classic Day – Self-Mutilation            

The random pockets of black metal where different genres can coexist is the sculpting point for finding niche and perfectly tailored releases. The 2009 self-titled release from When Mine Eyes Blacken is a depressive fall from the safety net of clouds into a tarnished,…

Classic Day – Secret Soul

While the internet has brought immaculate innovation and connection since the first moments it sprang onto an audience in 1983, it has now become a wasteland of virtual crate digging with a seemingly endless bound and depth. Following the overabundance of artists that release…

Classic Day – 21 Gun Salute

The beauty of early punk and alternative records is the message being packed into quick, almost blazing tracks that can be formed into this Voltron team effort to convey 21 tracks over 35 minutes. The first record by Wire holds Pink Flag at this isolated…

There is something so distinguishable about the incredibly simple, but frankly addictive nature that Neil Young’s 1975 release, Tonight’s The Night holds over the listener. On the first approach, the shaky vocals and shallow production quality is a staple of the blackened river that…

Classic Day – Special Friend

Until the end, there will always be a fascination with the other dimensions that exist between the physical and the mental worlds. Between the internal thoughts that are intricacies of both animalistic and twisted, the almost primal identity is something that floods into artwork…

Classic Day – Long Time Coming

When searching through the internet crates of back catalogs on what records to cover for the following weeks, a record that I continuously revisited seemingly month after month but never discussed was J Dilla’s Donuts. A record that has given many of my personal…

Classic Day – Two Stooges

While the record has Iggy Pop’s name on the cover, The Idiot is his first solo record since the creation and disbandment of The Stooges where David Bowie worked to sculpt a foundation for Pop to follow. This record, while in many ways is…
