“Scythian Empire,” amid lush pizzicato violin, considers an obscure corner of history and its lost civilizations, and apocalyptic horsemen.
grand ole party
Good shit happens to this San Diego band. Their very first public gig was a sold-out show at The Casbah, opening for friends UV Tigers. Months later, a well-known musician left a MySpace comment that eventually led to a record deal. Less than a year after their first gig, they played the South-by-Southwest music festival on bills with the likes of Badly Drawn Boy. On their way home, their Volkswagen van breaks down and a random scientist-mechanic dude fixes it for free.
Good shit happens to good bands. Especially one with a singer whose voice can alter the molecular structure of glass.
