In a recording career spanning more than 25 years, CITIZEN COPE (born Clarence Greenwood) has blended soul, folk and rock into a unique style of his own. Along the way, his songs have been recorded by a diverse list of artists including Santana, Dido, Brett Dennen, and Richie Havens. In March, Cope released Heroin and Helicopters , his first release since 2012. The album’s title alludes to advice he received from Carlos Santana that heroin and helicopters are two things that don’t mix well with musicians. On WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, Citizen Cope will perform at IRON CITY in a show presented by Birmingham Mountain Radio. Recently, he spoke with us by phone from his Los Angeles home. 

Thanks for your time. With several albums in your catalog, how are you comprising setlists for the current tour?

New Music Monday – Spaceface

New Music Monday - Spaceface

Entering our atmosphere from the far-out realms of Memphis, Tennessee, Spaceface brings with them psychedelic rock n’ roll set against an enveloping light show experience. Spaced-out keys, glam-pop accents, deep and dizzying jams, and tripped-out lyrics show us their intergalactic mission: Spaceface came to party.

Frontman Jake Ingalls currently plays floorsynth and guitar for psych-rock juggernauts The Flaming Lips, having also toured with Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. Inspired by the Lips and their frontman, Wayne Coyne, since he was a kid, Ingalls adopts a similar style for Spaceface, putting on concerts “more DIY than the Lips’ live show,” he recently commented on May 8th’s interview with The Audiovore on Birmingham Mountain Radio.

A must-see show is happening this Thursday, May 12, at Trim Tab Brewing: The Audiovore Presents “Spread Your Head” feat. Spaceface, with \\GT// and Future Primitives. This New Music Monday features a PREMIERE of three never-before-heard tracks from their upcoming album. Joining the mix we have their 2014 EP, available below, for your worthy earthen ears.

Keep your earthen eyes peeled to our Instagram account. All this week, we’ll be giving away two pairs of tickets to the show as well as two holographic posters of the official concert…
