November 2021 Mix

Post Author: Jeff Cubbison

Featuring new videos, tracks & performances from SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Horsegirl, NewDad & more

As a native San Diegan, I tend to play favorites when it comes to bands that emerge from my hometown. Now, just simply hailing from San Diego isn’t gonna turn my head much. You’ve gotta be good, for starters. But if you are from SD and you are great, I’ll ride or die for you. So it makes me endlessly happy to witness – and root for – the breakthrough success that SeeYouSpaceCowboy has attained this year.

SYSC’s frenetic blend of post-hardcore, metalcore and sasscore takes the Hot Topic-adjacent sounds of our youth and catapults them right into the present (and future). And their newest album The Romance of Affliction is stunning evidence of that; rip-curling power chords oscillating alongside crusted metalcore breakdowns, whistle-clean emo crooning that intersects with frontwoman Connie Sgarbossa’s shattering screams, and all backed by hypnotic percussion time signatures. It’s intense, emotionally draining stuff, but also an incredibly thrilling and rewarding listening experience. SeeYouSpaceCowboy’s latest single and video off that record, “The End to a Brief Moment of Lasting Intimacy,” leads off our November YouTube mix, which also includes new stuff from the likes of NewDad, Horsegirl, Fly Anakin, as well as a new video for Mariya Takeuchi’s legendary 1984 city pop hit “Plastic Love.” You can dive into the playlist and check out the tracklist below.
