Classic Day – Band Of Gypsys

“I should have quit you,” describes Jimi Hendrix over the enthusiastic and almost chaotic howls of guitar strings and percussive crashes on “Killing Floor.” While the record Live At Monterey might be a release that comes far after Hendrix’s death in 1970, the recording… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Band Of Gypsys”

Classic Day – 253 W 125th

Coming from the now nearly 60 years after the original performance of Live At The Apollo, 1962. James Brown & The Famous Flames were able to tie in one of the more explosive live records in 11 tracks. Opening with the introduction heard round… Continue Reading “Classic Day – 253 W 125th”

Misc. Day – Three-Ring Circus

In the internet’s age of absurdity that can also reflect almost otherworldly talent through genre-blending. Who knew that comedy and electronic jazz fusions with power violence could be such a digestible meal of 17 minutes. Clown Core, also now known as one of the… Continue Reading “Misc. Day – Three-Ring Circus”

Classic Day – 25TaLyfe

Who could have known that 25 years later, serving a capital offense for lyrical murder, comes GZA The Genius with Liquid Swords and blades lined with opponent’s blood. Through thin, paper-esque slices, GZA is encapsulating of both murderous undertones and the honor of a… Continue Reading “Classic Day – 25TaLyfe”

Classic Day – Betray

As history seems to continue to repeat, the teachings and relations that come from Minor Threat illustrate to stop dead in the tracks, pointing to the past as a reference. Especially on the sole record from Out Of Step which is only nine tracks… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Betray”

Classic Day – Second Time Around

The Underground Kings or just simply UGK might have had only two lyricists working together, but the sound that exemplified from their vocals and backing production is like jumping into a time machine. Especially on their second studio record, Super Tight which is slowed… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Second Time Around”

Classic Day – A Bitch To Contain

Live records are not usually featured as the results from most artists do not obtain major changes in the production or reproduction from the original records to the live settings. With Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal by Lou Reed, he is this phantasmic caricature of… Continue Reading “Classic Day – A Bitch To Contain”

Classic Day – Life Is Laughing

It seems like Los Angeles has been the birthplace for some of the better known and underground scenes for every genre even now in 2020. From the hippie subculture to the punk scene of the early 80s, Wasted Youth was right there from the… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Life Is Laughing”

Classic Day – Kaleidoscopic Death

Bordering somewhere on the acid runs of experimentalism and the intricacies of jazz, there is also a touch of the vein into orchestral music that comes from David Axelrod on his debut 1968 release Song Of Innocence. While the following record Songs Of Experience was already featured here, the… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Kaleidoscopic Death”


Hey Joe Act II of Joe’s Garage is perhaps the most eccentric of the trilogy as Frank Zappa becomes entirely captured by the idea of sex with machines and prison rape. Where Joe’s Garage Act I was more about the dangers of music and… Continue Reading “🅩 WEEK OF FRANK ZAPPA – DAY TWO 🅩”

Classic Day – Flowers Bloom

Where the Zamrock phase that struck Africa in the 1970s, combining both the authenticity of traditional African sound and stirring the melting ability of psychedelic concept orchestrated something engaging and unique. In 1978, Hailu Mergia was able to construct forces with Dahlak Band to… Continue Reading “Classic Day – Flowers Bloom”

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”
