Daily Jam - Slip Slide Melting

A staple of my 9th and 10th grade listening and beyond, the soundtrack to "The Crow" is one of those CD's (it was the '90s) that i know by heart from front to back.  Every song is a winner.  And i jammed "Slip Slide Melting" by Oklahoma band For Love Not Lisa all the time, even as i've never heard a single other track by them.  Anyway, check out some '90s alt-rock below for our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - The Moon

There was a really cool lo-fi folk movement in the early '00s that eventually got swallowed up by the larger indie rock boom happening at the time, but i loved those early scratchy records and tapes, by The Microphones in particular.  Good stuff.  Here's "The Moon," our Daily Jam.

Australian band Bolt Gun make a noisy and entrancing mix of black metal, ambient, and doom.  There's even some noirish, free-form sax in there.  Last month, they released the new 2-part single "The Warren."  It rules.  Check out both parts below and download it all here.

Daily Jam - Dawn Chorus

Digging through some stuff to listen to while i get some data entry done today and settling on Boards of Canada.  Here's "Dawn Chorus," our Daily Jam.

Wednesday, August 16, 2023


I did not get the chance to check out raucous punk band Upchuck last March during SXSW, although it seemed like they were playing everywhere, which is too bad, because i'm digging on the frenetic energy of "Freaky" from the band's upcoming "Bite the Hand That Feeds" LP.  Check the track out below and pre-order the album here from Famous Class Records.

Daily Jam - Gold Splatter

And now for the drippy, woozy, psychedelic sounds of Black Moth Super Rainbow to wash my mind and cares away.  Listen to "Gold Splatter" below, our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - Megalomania

I've copped to the fact that i'm not super versed in the musical stylings of Black Sabbath in the past, outside of the stuff that everyone knows, and a friend of mind humbly suggested i give the band's 1975 album "Sabotage" a spin.  Doing so, i think "Megalomania" may be my favorite from the record.  Check it out below, our Daily Jam.

Monday, August 14, 2023


Things get a little noisy on the latest release from Australian band DEAFCULT.  Elements of shoegaze, alt-rock, and noise rock abound, all the better to pierce those eardrums and rattle those skulls.  Check out the timely titled opening track "Oppenheimer's Regret" below and get the "Future of Illusion" LP here from Hobbledehoy.

Daily Jam - The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret

Absolutely, positively delirious with how busy i've been with work lately.  Here's some Queens of the Stone Age to center me again for a moment.  Listen to "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" below, our Daily Jam.

Precocious Neophyte

I listen to a lot of shoegaze music both old and new, and it really seems these last few years that the shoegaziest stuff is coming from artists out of Asia.  Seoul's Precocious Neophyte is one of those artists.  New album "Home in the Desert" is out next month.  Get it here from Graveface and listen to "My Electronic Idol" below.

Daily Jam - Hooray for Tuesday

There's an Elephant 6 documentary making its way around the film festival circuit, and i'm really hoping i get to catch it at some point.  Their scene was a seminal part of music education when i was in college.  Here's a track from one of the groups in their circle.  Listen to "Hooray for Tuesday" by The Minders below, our Daily Jam.

Saturday, August 12, 2023

Friday Horror Trailer - The Boogeyman


Daily Jam - Bright Lights

Somewhere in the past, i'm stoned off my ass and listening to "Bright Lights" by Black Mountain.  Not currently stoned as it's very early in the morning and i have a whole day of work, etc. ahead of me, but still listening to "Bright Lights" by Black Mountain.  You should too.  Check it out below, our Daily Jam.
