SONG OF THE DAY: Circle of Ouroborus -- "Warpath"
Finland's Circle of Ouroborus released Eleven Fingers through Handmade Birds Records last week. Darkness sprinkled onto a canvas of Light (or the reverse), this track has something for everyone. Even you.
ALBUM OF THE DAY: The Classical -- "The Classical"
At long last, The Classical (AKA CC's very own Juliet E. Gordon) has released her eponymous first LP, which is now available for download on bandcamp. A truly impressive work of melancholic beauty and muted grandiosity, this album swells, sinks, ebbs, and flows with a certain smoldering, magmatic momentum. You'll tap your feet. You'll sway your hips. You'll want a drink. It will seep into the forgotten nooks and dusty crannies of your soul, and will probably get stuck in your head too. Produced by the illustrious Maxime Robillard, and featuring guest appearances by several CC musicians, this is more local than the kale in Rastall. You know you want a taste.
