Kylesa

Compared to fellow Georgians Mastodon & Baroness, Kylesa have always been sort of the underdog. Now entering their 10th year as a band, it seemed like sweet justice on Wednesday (1/26) to see the band pack a headlining show at Santos Party House, and play with another THREE underrated bands in their own right.

Rosetta, East of The Wall, and Fight Amp all deserve bigger audiences than they usually draw. East of The Wall’s Isis-meets-jazzy-tech is technically astounding, brutal, and endlessly watchable. Fight Amp conjure the best of Am-Rep, leaning towards hardcore. Rosetta’s post-rock-meets-hardcore is spacey, atmospheric, emotional, and a live juggernaut.

I could tell from not only the crowd’s size, but from some of the faces, that Kylesa’s new LP Spiral Shadow has been attracting attention from some different corners of the music world. Nevertheless, the bulk of the crowd popped for fan fave “Hollow Severer” (from 006’s Time Will Fuse Its Worth). Material from personal fave Static Tensions received the same warm welcome… if by welcome you mean stagedives and windmills. It was another excellent set from this crew, who unfortunately had some extra work to do the next morning.
