And now I know myself, VIDEO: DAYS N’ DAZE – Self Loathing [Crowded Coffin Productions]
Days N’ Daze – Self Loathing, from the CRUSTFALL LP, is available at Bandcamp.
by Walter Price
The purveyors of Houston bred Thrashgrass, Days N’ Daze, have reached back into their catalog and plucked an indelible folk-punk gem from their 2017 CRUSTFALL LP to make a where-the-day-takes-ya video. To be fair, this video was started three years ago by Crowded Coffin’s Gabe Ruiz, but due to too unforeseen circumstances, he wasn’t able to complete the video until this year.
Anyhoo, the film for “Self Loathing” has been unleashed and it’s an authentic carpe diem scenario replete with crisp visuals as it follows the band in a ‘borrowed’ truck, sharing drinks, song, and lackadaisical happiness. Not to mention Jesse Sendejas and Whitney Flynn passing around verses like a jug of vino, that stunning drone shot…and then, that cliffhanger ending. A must-see.
All and all, its a beautifully done experience, and fans are eating it up. In one YouTube comment, H. Fuller says, “Oh my goddddd. I love this, I love the camera quality, I love the story, I love the scenery, I love the punk culture, I love EVERYTHING about this. DnD for life!”. As another one from fiendbastards exclaims, “The professionalisme…. Looks like a Weezer video !”. And one last one that I really dug from BLM, “Now you guys got a truck come pick my ass up btw great job on the song and the video!”.
Check it all out below and add this track to your summertime folk punk playlist toot sweet!

And now I know myself a bit too well
And I’m not sure I like what I’ve become
Self loathing is overwhelming
Every mirror is a loaded gun
