This week’s offering on Local Music Monday is a real dark one. WinterCoffin is a solo black metal effort from local musician Ethan Senecal. We haven’t seen WinterCoffin perfom live, but were very impressed with these recorded tracks. For fans of Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone and the like, these songs would have been right at home alongside the likes of Long Cat or Vicious Intent. Here’s to hoping we see these songs hit the stage soon!
This week on Local Music Monday, we’ve got a real blast from the past. Released in 1964, Monkey’s Tail is the first single from funk master mind Professor Earl Lett. It was recorded right here in Plattsburgh, NY. While there isn’t a ton of information on the recording, we’re assuming that it was tracked over at Rondack Studios, which was located on Clinton Street back in the day. We’ll be posting some more gems from that era soon, so keep an eye and an ear out! This track comes courtesy of Tramp records, who have an entire collection of the Professor’s work available for purchase or streaming over on their Bandcamp page. Check it out!
This week on Local Music Monday we’re bringing you a release by Tranquilizer Full Of…, better known as T.F.O.
These sounds were committed to tape by Sean G. of Adrian Aardvark t-shirt fame, and feature the noise rock trio giving one of their best recorded performances. Give these tunes a listen, and check their Bandcamp page for a slew of other awesome releases from T.F.O.!
We’re starting a new feature here on DIY Plattsburgh- Local Music Mondays.
Every Monday we’ll bring you a stream or download of a local release! It could be an old classic or something totally new, or maybe it’s just new to you! There’s been a lot of great music made in our fine city, and we’re happy to help to bring it to the people.
Our first installment is a live album by The Lo-Fi Felons, a hip hop trio that existed in Plattsburgh for a short time, led by vocalist Alex Davis of pyramidpendulum fame. These tracks were captured live at ROTA Gallery, and if memory serves correctly, it was part of their Wacky Weekend Tour, in which they played as many downtown Plattsburgh venues as possible over the course of one wacky weekend. Relive the magic, via internet!
