Spaceface
Spaceface
Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls who also plays guitar and synthesizer in The Flaming Lips. And the show reflects that influence. Spaceface works to bring the concert grade experience to a club level employing a DIY light rig and other theatrical elements. They have two Ep's that were released in the past year, the first recorded at Pink Floor Studio in OKC and second Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN. They have been a touring band for 3 years playing shows and festivals all across the country, including Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL, SXSW in Austin, Treefort Music Festival in Boise ID, and ACM Fest in OKC. Some of the acts Spaceface has toured and worked with include a broad range of genres like Phantogram, The Flaming Lips, Bright Light Social Hour, Young Buffalo, Prince Rama, Swimm, Morgan Delt, Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Electric Wurms. Spaceface has just finished recording a full length LP this winter and is mixing and mastering now, to be released as soon as this summer, followed by a national tour.
Kingdom of the Holy Sun
Kingdom of the Holy Sun
Formed in early 2012 in Seattle, WA, Kingdom of the Holy Sun offers their twist on psychedelia , by drawing on such genres as the melodic and fuzzed out sounds of garage rock from the 60’s, meditative drones and instrumentation from the Indian Sub-continent, as well as the more recent sounds of neo- psychedelia. These influences form touchstones they use to explore new sonic landscapes. Their psychedelic sound ranges from the repetitive beats of the Monks (A Go Go) to The Doors inspired gems (Her sweet delight) to hypnotic drones of Spacemen 3 (Pharmacokinetics). Live shows often include colorful visuals and liquid light show. In addition, their sound has been compared The Velvet Underground, Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Black Angels.
Fruit Juice
Fruit Juice
"My needs were met when Fruit Juice, a band of self-proclaimed “eccentric-pop” rockers from Olympia, took the stage. Not only do their songs feel like a cool, tasty glass of fruit juice, but the band must spend more money on glitter than any group I’ve seen in a decade. I liked the group’s music when I saw them perform roughly two years ago, but they have evolved by leaps and bounds since then. Jake McCaffray and Quillian Fennessy have perfected their catchy and harmonic vocal pop hooks; Gabriel Stranahan’s bass lines are jaunty and infectious; and the arrangements are tight, fun and always get even the stuffiest Seattleite to tap their toes. Topping it all off, new drummer Ron Plaja glues the project together with a relaxed and inspired set of beats that have greater depth and fluidity than the band’s earlier incarnation. He also smiles more than any drummer I’ve seen of late; it’s excellent to watch him have fun." -Frida Ray via Nadamucho.com
