Most of my listening time lately has been taken up by Dog Day's new album Fade Out, which is being released Dec. 10. It's a melting pot of a record, punk as it was in the day, post-punk in its artsy glory, lo-fi touches (Eric's Trip came to mind a few times), subtle pop hooks, some truly messed-up guitar solos, perfect one-note piano, beautifully lean, wiry riffs. I'm pretty sure Seth Smith sings "I'll be ringing Number of the Beast...to come over" in Blackened, which you can listen to here, so that's pretty intriguing too.
Get lead track Wasted below.
