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. Spaceface is putting out a new LP called "Sun Kids" via Behind The Curtains Media on April 21st and will be touring in support of it nationally. The new album features artists Mikaela Davis, as well as our friend Julien Baker, and Engineered by Calvin Lauber from Pillowtalk and Daisyhead. The album is being mixed at Blatchwatch Studios in Norman, Oklahoma by Jake Ingalls and Jarod Evans, who most recently coproduced and mixed with Broncho, and worked on Sufjan Stevens' "Carrie And Lowell".

ASIAN FRED
ASIAN FRED
ASIAN FRED is the new musical project from former Of the Painted Choir song writer and front man, Frederick Huang. Referencing childhood racial slights and ridicule—playful or otherwise— the name ASIAN FRED stems from his experiences residing in a region with few Asian Americans, exacerbated by his old-fashioned, Western first name. Upon returning to Tucson, Ariz. in August of 2014 with a handful of brand new songs, he recruited a band, consisting of Steven Yanez Romo (Ghostal, Electric Blankets) on drums, Noah Horton (Holy Rolling Empire, Texas Justice) on guitar and vocals and Kyle Gutierrez (The Mean Reds) on bass and vocals. ASIAN FRED continues Huang's musical evolution where Of the Painted Choir left off. His song writing remains strongly influenced by 60s era pop. However, ASIAN FRED has its own identity, defined by more energy, concise experimentation, and greater emphasis on unusual melodies and song structure. The rhythm section of Romo and Gutierrez provide an R&B framework for Horton and Huang's Rock & Roll-oriented guitars and unconventional chord progressions. In turn, this framework compliments Huang's soaring vocal melodies and Horton and Gutierrez's harmonies.
