Classic Day – Planet Of The Apes

The echo of the low-tuned, almost villainous sample of “Sean P” that continues to replay even far after his debut record, Monkey Barz falls out of frame becomes almost an inside joke within the listener and the artist. Sean Price is an underground king,… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Planet Of The Apes”

Classic Day – Use Some

By 1980, the third studio record by British born punk band Magazine was able to spawn a conversation with their faster, more agitated riffs and percussion that was able to both control and also crack through the pavement. The movement that ensues from The… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Use Some”

Classic Day – Fantastic Voyage

Lyrically dense and nearly impossible to digest on a single spin, Fantastic Damage by the New York MC El-P is enough to push backpack hip-hop into a mantlepiece. The fire burns brightly, but through the 16 tracks and over an hour of content, this… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Fantastic Voyage”

Classic Day – Mother’s Milk

If the rambunctious styling of Trout Mask Replica was too much to digest in a single setting, perhaps the mystic metamorphosis of their debut record, Safe As Milk by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band would be more soothing. Still a fairly packed instrumental… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Mother’s Milk”

Classic Day – Let Them Eat Cake

1977 in London, England, before group called the Sex Pistols were able to emancipate a group of youth forever with a new style of dress and music that would go on to change how society operated. This influence stemmed from another group, The Damned… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Let Them Eat Cake”

Classic Day – Old Man’s Tune

2020 may have been an absolute shitshow, but people around the world were forced to grow and mold their shells to find comfort in some of the abnormalities of daily life. As quarantine begins, and the days grow longer with less to look forward… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Old Man’s Tune”

Classic Day – Plan 9 From New Jersey

While the third official grouping of recordings from the Lodi, New Jersey Martians, the Misfits were able to push a label debut with Walk Among Us. Spanning 13 tracks over 24 minutes. The songwriting is a refined call to the B-horror movies with the… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Plan 9 From New Jersey”

Classic Day – Chelsea Girls

Isolation is never a term that comes with the idea of pop music, but when dissecting the minor intricacies of Nico’s debut solo record, Chelsea Girl is a striking representation of grace in a three-season room. She is able to place frankly artful instrumentals… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Chelsea Girls”

Classic Day – Serenity’s Death

Death is part of the predetermined portions of life that is both unavoidable and while seemingly dreadful, can be a thing of great mysterious charm. Somehow when lost in the guise of an everlasting end, Opeth can shift their third studio record to fit… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Serenity’s Death”

Classic Day – Horror Drama

It is easy to become lost in the tidal waves of sound that increasingly shift by the day now that the internet has made music such an accessible and often-times, disposable medium of communication. But it is vital to focus on those who without… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Horror Drama”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – 10 Year Curve”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Disaster Artists”

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,… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Self-Mutilation            “

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Secret Soul”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – 21 Gun Salute”

Classic Day – I And I Survive

Pitting the two standout records from punk rock monuments has its difficulty. On one hand, the Bad Brains were this overpowering force stemming from positive messages that were influential for years following, on the other, they crafted a stage presence that was bigger than… Continue Reading “Classic Day – I And I Survive”

Classic Day – Blotter Isolation

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Blotter Isolation”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Special Friend”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Long Time Coming”

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… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Two Stooges”
