Misc. Day – Fade To Sleep

Like grains in the sand, Grouper rests among a bank of being trapped within a large, nearly overwhelming crowd. Somehow while surrounded, the isolative factor becomes more clear and pressing as their 12th studio record, Shade becomes overwhelming in its simplicity. Liz Harris is… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Fade To Sleep”

Misc. Day – Is It Meme Culture?

I mean at this point, why wouldn’t anime and chainsaws enter the stratosphere of grindcore and being one of the strongest releases of the year. Yandere Chainsaw Regurgitation Factory is explosive on Out For Blood, their fifth project of the year. Surprisingly intricate for… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Is It Meme Culture?”

Misc. Day – Huey P.

When the “P” stands for power in the ensemble, dj blackpower A.K.A. New York City’s own MIKE is the continuation of spoken word over stoned, but often cinematic loops and performances. Like a student film gone global, BLP2020: “King Of The Night” holds both… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Huey P.”

Misc. Day – Breakbeat Surprise

EDM and dance music as a collective genre is something that never fully appealed to the ears personally, until realizing the energy that it holds in a live setting. Seeing strangers and bodies form to be one giant two-stepping conglomerate still strikes ecstasy into… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Breakbeat Surprise”

Misc. Day – Etch To Flesh

Rumbling off in the distance as clouds crash together to orchestrate a tightly knit thunderous clap, Wormwitch is the blackened metal sacrifice of sound that combines both the horrors of dungeons and the excitement of immoral magic. Wolf Hex is the 2021 release from… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Etch To Flesh”

Misc. Day – Hooked On Mach-Phonics

It started as this cult obsession over who was becoming the new favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. While MF DOOM and the likes of Jay-Z held those titles for what appears to be years, Mach-Hommy as a newcomer to sound is this generation’s golden lion.… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Hooked On Mach-Phonics”

Misc. Day – Harrowing Strings

Fall into a comfortability as earth surrounds the audience, becoming a fade back into the dirt from which Alex Maas has come.

Misc. Day – Closed Fist Chronicles

Whether eating rocks or grenades, 80HD from New York has quickly risen to be one of the personal favorites for being a beatdown of sonic collection. Starting with a closed fist and stage dive into the unsuspecting crowd, DEMO 2021 spends more time being… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Closed Fist Chronicles”

Misc. Day – Pigeons Fly Sideways

With a name like Brad Stank, perhaps the initial idea of harsh shouts and destructive punk performances are the immediate flash to the brain. Instead, Stank is a gracious angelic bounce and shuffle to waking up next to your favorite partner, seeing the sunlight… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Pigeons Fly Sideways”

Misc. Day – Rain Come Down

Built for a monsoon, Yves Tumor illustrates with their first experimental composition piece, When Man Fails You to be as a monument of both tension creation and redaction of claustrophobia and sound. When Man Fails You is ultimately this special record of 11 tracks,… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Rain Come Down”

Misc. Day – The Iron Lung

Remember how terrifying the synthesizer work of the 80s was in horror films? Remember that creeping but subtle blast off of sound where tensions were high and almost unstable. Now imagine if GAG, a band from Olympia, Washington that instead of subtle creeping are… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – The Iron Lung”

Misc. Day – Mental Panopticon

While in most normal circumstances, getting shouted at for nearly 30 minutes might seem like an ultimately unpleasant experience; unless it is spent with Deli Girls on their 2019 release, I Don’t Know How To Be Happy. Duo of Danny Orlowski and Tommi Kelly… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Mental Panopticon”

Misc. Day – Just Walk Away

Living in a melted dreamworld may seem like it can be just a fantasy, but when embarking on SUNDUR’s debut project Somewhere There’s Music, this dream not only becomes a reality but is a fascinating blur between reality and dream. In a timid, but… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Just Walk Away”

Misc. Day – Synthpunk God

It only feels fitting after nearly getting firebombed last night to cover one of the artists from the Dead City show. N8NOFACE has been in the rotation of artists but I never dived headfirst into the blood-caked disco with a magnifying lens until now.… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Synthpunk God”

Misc. Day – Cast Away

Much like the snow that hits in the sunken winters of December, the New Year’s Eve release date for PUZZLE’s 2016 project Laying In The Sand gives moments of awe and vibrance without ever leaving the frozen tundra. Glimmering through the waves of light… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Cast Away”

Misc. Day – Split Ends

Maxo might come from a place bearing consistent sunshine like Los Angeles, but the LA native on his  2018 project SMILE is anything but the bright and forecasting poet with a promising future. Instead, SMILE is often confused and found in that in-between space… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Split Ends”

Misc. Day – Lords Of Wax

It’s been a long time coming since the Alabaman native Pink Siifu and the Richmond destroyer, Fly Anakin could collaborate once again on their 2021 production, $mokebreak. The congruent effort from both parties is immediate to spark a spliff and create a cloud of… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Lords Of Wax”

Misc. Day – Sonic Youth

In awe of the communication that comes from the body as percussion and low-tuned guitar riffs flood the ears, Nekra quickly makes a punk rock stance of sound and leadership. Forming in the basements of London’s DIY shows where sweat and perspiration flood the… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Sonic Youth”

Misc. Day – Shattered Idols

In the spirit of celebrating some of the better artists this side of the century, Young Thug has definitely not spent enough time in the writing section of the site. And frankly, I apologize that it took this long for me to really focus… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Shattered Idols”

Misc. Day – Absent In The Brain

As if time wasn’t confusing enough, POW! orchestrates a sound that can be placed in the style of the early 60s of experimental flower power but also stranded in a future where machinery becomes the new sonic ability. On their 2017 release Crack An… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Absent In The Brain”
