Being blown away at his live performance a few weeks back, it is necessary that Mylets’ latest album “Arizona” is mentioned on this site. Opening for And So I Watch You From Afar at the Casbah, Sargent House band Mylets is Henry Kohen, vocalist, guitarist, and master looper. A kid under 21 years of age from Indiana, any listener of his work will leave their jaws on the floor when listening to the dexterous “Arizona.”Read More »
Concluding their successful North American tour, Belfast post-rock band And So I Watch You From Afar will be playing one of their last sets at The Casbah in San Diego this Saturday.
Supported by Mylets and Blis, the intimate setting of The Casbah seems perfect for such a band. Known for energetic performances and chaotic crowds, it will be interesting to see the two collide in such an intimate setting. Who will be louder: the rowdy bands on stage, or the anarchic fans? It will be up to Crash And Ride Music to decide.
Founded in 2005, these Irish rockers have captured the energy of live concerts in the studio. They have released four records: their self titled debut, “Gangs,” “All Hail Bright Futures,” and “Heirs.”

It took my friends over at Nine Circles to remind me that post-metal band Deafheaven had released their newest album “New Bermuda” last Friday. Being a fan of their last album, the critically acclaimed “Sunbather,” I was interested in hearing how these guys would follow it up. A few listens in, I’m already considering this album a huge success, and possibly even better than their last.Read More »
I’ve been listening to the post-rock/math rock band And So I Watch You From Afar lately. It’s a band I’ve recognized on the Internet because of their lengthy and intriguing name, and a band I’ve been recommended numerously through iTunes and Last.fm. I admit that I hadn’t heard any of their albums before picking up their recent album “Heirs,” so some research was necessary. Another band featured on this site from the label Sargent House, I discovered the chaotic song structures, heavily overdriven sound, and instrumental nature from their prior albums. Upon my first listen of their newest album “Heirs,” I couldn’t help but reminisce on what they released previously, thinking of that classic line from the movie “This Is Spinal Tap”: these guys turn it up to eleven.Read More »
The world was treated with a nice gift last Wednesday, a release of the first listen to Chelsea Wolfe’s upcoming album “Abyss” on NPR. For those you who remember , you are aware of how eerie and talented this woman is. Hailing from Los Angeles, her music focuses on dark themes, whether from past experiences or gothic inspirations. I was able to sit down and take in her upcoming album over the weekend, one I believe could be her strongest release to date.Read More »
Over the weekend, one of my favorite instrumental bands came to the Casbah in San Diego. Unfortunately, I was not one of the lucky fans who got to attend their sold out show. Although I have seen them three times before, I was sad knowing that Russian Circles was playing just fifteen miles away from my home, and I wasn’t there. Luckily, I was able to imagine myself there while listening to their newest album “Memorial.”Read More »
