After taking last week off Monday Magick is back and it’s darker, harder, and heavier than ever! How so, you may ask? Well, this week we’re featuring “Dunwich”, a decidedly sludgy bit of Lovecraftian Rock by British Stoner/Doom Metal quartet Electric Wizard from their 2007 LP ‘Witchcult Today’! Longtime readers[…]
My day job is kicking my ass right now. inspiring me to sleep today rather than research and write a post, so Monday Magick will be taking this week off. We should be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week. *Art by 7s-world on DeviantArt.
This week’s Monday Magick is gonna be one of my patented re-interpretations of a seemingly innocuous and unmagickal song utilizing magickal thinking. The song in question is Alt-Pop chestnut “Brass in Pocket (I’m Special)” by British Rock outfit The Pretenders featuring Ohio-born songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Chrissie Hynde. Released in[…]
It’s Halloween and I’m all “Season of the Witch”-ed out over here, so Monday Magick is taking this week off. We should be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.
This week we round out what could potentially be our last October’s worth of “Season of the Witch” covers here on Monday Magick with a rare take featuring a female vocal! Said vocal comes courtesy of Kay Garrett, and it graces a Bluesy, eight-plus-minute version of the cut by[…]
When I instituted the annual month-long celebration of “Season of Witch” here on Monday Magick a few years back it was intended to unearth radical re-imaginings of the Donovan tune. Covers that turn the classic on its head, or bring something new and different to the composition. And while some of the covers[…]
Another Monday in October means another Monday Magick and another cover of Donovan’s psuedo-occult Psych-Folk chestnut “Season of the Witch” by another largely forgotten band. This week the honor falls to an outstanding take recorded by ’60s “supergroup” The Masked Marauders for their self-titled Warner Brothers Records debut. I put[…]
If you’ve been reading Monday Magick for a while you know that every October, in honor of Halloween, I dedicate a month’s worth of posts to various cover versions of British Psych-Folk grandmaster Donovan’s classic composition “Season of the Witch”. The song has been covered quite a few times, in[…]
I was almost positive that I’d posted “Disco Devil”, Dub originator Lee “Scratch” Perry’s 1979 rework of the Max Romeo Reggae classic “I Chase the Devil”, as part of Monday Magick a long time ago. But as of this morning it’s not anywhere to be found on this website. I[…]
“I be on those chemicals… She be on my testicles… Poke her with my tentacle… Then put her on my schedule…” I’m a lazy fuck who hasn’t listened to anything but “Really Doe”, a brand new track from Detroit emcee Danny Brown featuring Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, and Earl Sweatshirt, all[…]
This week sucks and I really could give a fuck about anything right now. So no in-depth exegesis of deep occult secrets will be had in this week’s Monday Magick. No, instead you’re getting the laid back vamping of saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr. on the Bob James-produced Jazz-Fusion classic “Mister[…]
The word of The Law is Thelema. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of The Law. So say the lyrics of this week’s Monday Magick submission “Liber AL” by Italian Thelemic Neofolk act The Green Man from their 2009 debut LP ‘From Irem to Summerisle’. The lyrics, of[…]
