Hang the Old Year, Barrows and The Sky Above & Earth Below

Screamo project the Sky Above and Earth Below was formed in late 2009 by Miller Reda, formerly of a great, local ramshackle post-hardcore band with an even more ostentatious name: A Ghost's Face Two Inches from Your Own Face. That was a band worth checking out in its own right: AGFTIFYOF somehow played PDX Pop Now! in 2008 and made a lot of Blind Pilot fans very uncomfortable (their lead vocalist Nick Vicario is also the current guitarist in Wild Ones). In 2010, Sky Above released its Zelda-inspired debut EP, Quest's Timescape, which featured Reda on every instrument. It wasn't until 2012 that the project expanded into a full band and started performing live. The group's 2013 LP Parting Ways swaps the homespun charm and profoundly nerdy subject matter of its predecessor for a blistering musicality (the drums!) and genuinely affecting narrative, and establishes Sky Above as one of Portland's best and most theatrical punk bands.
