This time tomorrow, we will be setting the stage, turning on the amps and pouring beer to start the Apes on Tape showcase at Treefort Fest 2015. In just over 24 hours, the first band will be opening up the party. And you could do much worse than an opening band that self-describes themselves with "rock beer party rock pizza" in Memphis' Spaceface.
Musically, Tame Impala has become a lazy reference point for psychedelic rock over the past few years. However, while listening to Spaceface's live recordings (I recommend Live at Ardent Studios) I can't help but hear the parallels. From rhythmic grooves that give way to cosmic synth-led pauses to bass-driven builds, if you're a fan of Tame you should definitely dig Spaceface. Spaceface obviously incorporate their own psyche styles, which might ring home if you like My Morning Jacket or White Denim. Overall, we're simply giddy to have the bright, high-energy, psyche vibes of Spaceface opening our showcase.
See you tomorrow! Full showcase details here.
Earlier this fall, we shared a pair of tracks from one of Seattle's finer new bands this year. 206's Sisters crafted some well-loved cuts with "Back To You" and "Buzzard" that are worth acquainting yourself with. This morning, we are excited to premiere a new remix of Sisters "Buzzard" by fellow Seattleites Cuff Lynx.
For those keeping tabs on the burgeoning Pacific Northwest electronic scene of the past few years, Cuff Lynx make for a new addition to the club. Fans of ODESZA, Beat Connection, or Manatee Commune should be right at home with Cuff Lynx's brand of analog-inspired electronic. If you're new to any of that, Cuff Lynx' remix simply infuses deep grooves and upbeat vibes into an accessible Sisters track. I, for one, am legit excited to see what comes next from the duo.
If you're in the Northwest, you can catch Cuff Lynx touring with Boise's Magic Sword this January. Tour dates and ticket links are listed below.
