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…

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…

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…

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…

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 – 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…

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…

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…

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…
