Founded by Jake Ingalls, who has spent the last few years as a touring member of the Flaming Lips, Spaceface offers a refreshing approach on psychedelic rock, with transparent '70s references but also strikingly modern elements that make this trick something to behold. - Cool Hunting

Memphis six-piece Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls, a touring guitarist and keyboardist of The Flaming Lips, which makes a lot of sense the second one puts on today’s featured song. “Sun Kids” is hazy, psychedelic pop music, elegantly composed. It may be these tumultuous times, and the fact that so much protest music was being made during periods of similar unrest, like the ’60s, that when Ingalls and band sing about “children of the sun” it seems they’re making political and social commentary. Yet, even while rock ‘n’ roll has always confronted injustice, it’s also a form of escapism from ugly realities. As Spaceface’s soundscapes and extended dreamy harmonies float around your headphones, it’s easy to forget the continuing winter weather or the fact that it’s a truly bizarre 2017 so far. - KEXP

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 at 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 is putting out a new LP called "Sun Kids" via Behind The Curtains Media in early march and will be touring in support of it nationally.

Andy Clockwise

His diverse collection of songs range from indie rock to post-punk to electronic music with analog instruments, all of which are written, performed, and produced by Clockwise himself. His music has been compared to the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Roxy Music, Suede, Nick Cave, Echo and the Bunnymen. Clockwise has headlined his own tours as well as supported artists such as Julian Casablancas, Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers, The Black Keys, Warpaint, Juliette Lewis, The Adicts, The Wailers.

Andy had a very busy year last year. He recorded a new EP in the beginning of the year called “The Good Book” that was released in July 2016.

"Andy Clockwise exhibits an intrinsic understanding of the composition minutiae that made up past classics from the likes of Alphaville, Echo & The Bunnymen, Psychedelic Furs, and so on in a way that shines these beloved anachronistic components forward to the present day." - Impose Magazine

"existential and intimate utterances are illustrated among ear-worm keyboard hooks. A smart array of modern lenses that rejet the disco 70s & sleek romantic 80s as if it was re-imagined by the entire DFA artist roster.” - Impose Magazine

"intriguing" "sonically, the song sounds like LCD Soundsystem-meets-'80s disco and funk, but lyrically, it enters a more modern era" - The Wild Magazine

"the louche swagger of Suede and Roxy Music." - Interview Magazine
Green Gerry
Green Gerry
Green Gerry is an endearingly weird pop band based in Los Angeles. Birthed in Athens, Georgia and spearheaded by a one Gerry Green, who started out recording everything by himself, often on a laptop, in the closets of the various people he happened to be staying with at the time. The young singer-songwriter has been turning the conventions of the folk-world upside down with a staggeringly impressive collection of psychedelic, lo-fi, and even pop-laden songs. Green Gerry put together a band after the release of his second album, King Baby. At the same time, one of the pop friendly cuts on the record, "La La Lonely Maria #1," caught the attention of record label Mom+Pop, home to indie stalwarts Cloud Nothings, Andrew Bird, Flume, and Sleigh Bells among others. They approached Gerry to re-record the song in a studio and that's just what he did. Two singles, La LA Lonely Maria #1 and Mumbo Jumbo, are out now on Mermaid Ave, M+P's singles label. At the moment, Green Gerry is figuring out his life and finishing up his 3rd album, Electric Iron.
Bella Darling is from Los Angeles and Madrid. She started writing songs after learning how to play Daniel Johnston and Bob Dylan songs. Her songs are poems, dreams and surrealist stories that may or may not creep you out.
