DJ Day is known to me as DJ Day, but he is simplifying things as Day. I show respect to the DJ, and thus he will remain DJ Day to me. But you don’t want to know that, you want to know about what I described in the subject line, right? Fair enough.
DJ Day is about to release a new album on February 12th called Land of 1000 Chances (Peacelock 70), and the vinyl pressing will be interesting, as each one will be packaged in “PETA approved alternate leather”, then a handmade case bound cover with foil stamping. Then (yes, there’s more) each one will have a removable Polaroid picture on the front, as shown above. The album was mastered by the awesome Bernie Grundman (check your liner notes but if you don’t want to, we’re talking Earth, Wind & Fire’s Head To The Sky, Cheech & Chong’s Wedding Album, Joni Mitchell’s The Hissing Of Summer Lawns, Kalapana’s debut album, and most notably Steely Dan’s Aja). As for the final record itself, only 1000 copies have been pressed. Once they’re gone, that’s it.
You can listen to (and download for the time being) one of the tracks on it called “Mama Shelter”. This is very nice.
