Classic Day – Peel Slowly And See

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. It perfectly wraps the essence and danger of life’s turns while conquering this… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Peel Slowly And See”

Classic Day – Not My Homie

Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ was the first hip-hop record I ever saw in a store and could remember the cover for. The shattered glass fixated on 50 Cent’s rosary piece, to the intimation factor that came from the bold letters shouting “50 CENT”… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Not My Homie”

Classic Day – Goodfellow Falls

For a grindcore record that can immediately shatter the speakers is not a feat of misunderstanding, but to strike a nerve of utter fear through instrumentation and lyrical narration is something The Secret can thrive under. Their 2008 record Disintoxication is the sacrificial lamb that peels back… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Goodfellow Falls”

Classic Day – No Skips

  Crafting a record that spans 17 tracks and has no skips is not only nearly impossible but to be a record that essentially can still slap against any modern hit today is a work of art. Waka Flocka Flame’s Flockaveli continues to spark that ingenuity… Continue Reading “Classic Day – No Skips”

New Music – Feel Shame

The musical equivalent to self-immolation, Internal Incarceration coming from Year Of The Knife is predatory. From the kill switches or the chugging one-two punch, every second spent with Year Of The Knife becomes a denser cloud of dread. Opening with “This Time,” immediately the… Continue Reading “New Music – Feel Shame”

Classic Day – Bathetic Droning

It took a long time, but when first sluggishly sliding up to Angel Olsen’s now 10-year-old debut, Strange Cacti continues to impress for its complete and utter subtly. Similar to what Nico was trying to do with her first record Chelsea Girl, Olsen is… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Bathetic Droning”

New Music – Solar Eclipse

The disassociation of body and spirit that follows with Naeem’s newest stargate of Startisha breaks ground in sound. Not a record that is easy to digest with just a single interval, Startisha best performs under the fine-tooth intricate combing where the atmosphere can be… Continue Reading “New Music – Solar Eclipse”

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 – 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 – 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 – 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 – 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”
