Dayluta Means Kindness, Lonely Horse, Crown, Bright Like the Sun, Jonah Vin

On “The Ground Is Lava,” El Paso instrumental rockers Dayluta Means Kindness brings a gigantic and reverb-drenched approach to the childhood game. Recorded on the illustrious toys of the Sonic Ranch studio outside of El Paso, Lonely Horse’s pending debut album My Desert Son 2 extends the band’s rich aesthetic in glorious high fidelity. The re-recorded “…And the Number 3” sounds extraordinary: Hild’s open hi-hat pounding is emotional and crisp, while Long’s guitar-bending solos sound like decaying overworked machinery and his voice pounces proudly on top. Catch SA power trio Crown around town and it’s obvious that the three-piece believes deeply in their riffs and shredding them as viciously as possible. Groove-centric bassist Josh Borchardt holds it down on the low end as guitarist Carlos Zubillaga draws the most out of each bent tone. Drummer Oscar Webber’s fill-friendly rhythms drive the trio forward, as Borchardt and Zubillaga swap on vocal duties. With thick bundles of hair slapping around on stage, a blues rock style with a lysergic drop of psych and a badass take on “Helter Skelter,” Crown is one of the best live acts currently operating out of SA. An instrumental quintet, Bright Like the Sun’s post-rock dips into long lead guitar lines and textural drumming, as witnessed by tunes like “Les Vents Silencieux de Remords.” Out on Holy Hell Records, Jonah Vin’s 2013 effort Awake in Your Sleep is an exciting pop-punk debut.
