Misc. Day – Afterburner

It is hard to pick a defining moment where Playboi Carti was able to infiltrate the hearts of millions through his bombastic and energetic style that mixed with a pretty boy personality. Through his 2018 release Die Lit, his repetition on verses, the lightening…

Misc. Day – As The Acid Burns

The crashing waves of sound that act as metallic overcoats are similar to the emotional punch that Thou has on the listener. Through their 2018 release Rhea Sylvia, agony is personified through their illustrative performance. As the cold, almost lifeless eyes begin to shift…

Misc. Day – Papa Smurf

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the hustle lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,’” Jeremiah 29:11. The lord of the hustle graces and grants his presence on Redemption,…

Misc. Day – C. Scott Fitzgerald

In the grand time that Pittsburgh has been established as a musical background, the city’s jazz influence is monumental. Not only is the city well known for the Hill District which had a booming jazz age in the 1920s and on, but as the…

Harsh rainfall leads crashes into the windowpane. As the pounding precipitation begins to pile against the glass, the gentle introduction of jazz instruments follows. The house blend of smoothing, piano bounces and snare stems start to coincide within each other, as the then graceful…

Misc. Day – Indie Dreams

Through the jam sessions that erupt out of basement house shows, kicked over kegs in Oakland, and a desire to create something humanistic behind instrumental machines; Oshin, the 2012 release from the Brooklyn Zoo’s own supersonic and mostly instrumental band, DIIV is a wonderful…

Misc. Day – Instrumental Guardian

The crisp rattle of the hi-hats as the snap of the snare creates a contrast within the otherworldly warping synths and background elements that are littered throughout Sporting Life’s diverse production. The man of a thousand-plus sounds checks in with his 2015 release 55…

Misc. Day – Palaces of Gold

Abstract personalities and even conceptual production is off-putting at times, lacking the vital points that music needs to feel approachable. As Shabazz Palaces moves onto the center stage, illuminating their debut album Black Up, a wave of philosophical sound washes over the listener. Rather…
