San Diego Music News: New Music From Jake Najor | Al Howard Writes | New Casbah Merch

Jake Najor (Taken 1.27.2020)

There were no media briefings today, but there were both a City Council and County Supervisors meeting. I didn't watch either. I'll pore over the deets and get back to you later, though I do know the City Council passed the resolution to add a November ballot measure to dissolve the CRB and create a new Independent Commission on Police Practices, so that's something. I'm currently trying to watch Clueless with Nova and it's so hard knowing Stacy Dash is such an awful person irl. Anyway, thought I'd (mostly) stick to some music news for today. After the jump. 

  • Jake Najor shared this sick new video made by his amazing partner Sabrina Paul. 
Love it, share it. 

  • On Wednesday, the Casbah will be launching some new merch items. Pretty excited about these. Check out Casbah Merch on Wednesday to preorder the new shirts and the stealth mugs.

  • I got a sweet little message from my pal Al Howard the other day, but for some reason I can't share it. So this is from The Redwoods newsletter about his new project, Al Howard Writes. And here's an article I wrote for SoundDiego back in April.
    Alfred Howard has always been the epicenter of The Redwoods, our co-founder, producer, lyricist, and percussionist. His keen ear for talent brought our various members together throughout the years. Now Al is embarking on a new phase of his journey with his new project, Alfred Howard Writes. He is collaborating with musicians all across the country to write and release two songs a week for a year. You can subscribe to his series and you'll get a new song every Monday and Thursday as well as short stories and artwork collaborations with (his mom) Marian Howard. We are so excited for Alfred and you'll hear some other members of The Redwoods on upcoming tracks!
