Future Primitives/ Bad Cologne/ Easy Roscoe/ The Painted Hands

Future Primitives

Formed in 2012, Future Primitives is a six piece from Birmingham, Alabama. Equipped with a revolutionary psychedelic gospel they create music to dissolve the ego and invoke the soul. Their music could be described as raw garage power pop at the core but punk, blues and
psychedelic pop songs help create a “Freak Power Unlimited” sound. In 2013, they released their debut album “Erase The Future and Hope for Now” and in 2016 released their follow up “We Jam Apollo.”

 

Bad Cologne

Psyche, garage, power pop, rock n roll from Tuscaloosa & Birmingham, AL. We’re justa’ waitin’ on the bus. Sleazin’ around Tuscaloosa & Birmingham since 2015.

 

Easy Roscoe

In the brisk December 2015 breeze, Easy Roscoe embarked on their expedition to create their second record. Three months later, they emerged with a warm, soulfully matured blend of good times and good vibes party rock. The new EP, Piñata, is a conduit to Easy Roscoe’s fun atmosphere and catchy story telling lyrics. Their affection for replacing the day’s worries with good vibes shows up throughout the EP on songs like “Green Leather Jacket” and “Roll Baby Roll”. “If you can’t bob your head to this, then you don’t have a head.” This being the whimsical phrase uttered in the control room…

The Audiovore Presents: Spread Your Head feat.

Spaceface

“In the digital age, there is a new band on the radar every week, and it’s hard to find anything that stands out. But in a pool of up-and-coming bands that blend together, Spaceface has fused psychedelic rock ‘n roll with pop in a way that makes them – dare it be said – unique.

But it isn’t just bassist Matt Strong and drummer Victor Quinn Hill’s groovy rhythm section, Eric Martin’s washed out guitars, Jake Ingalls’ trippy vocals or Peter Armstrong’s spacey keyboards that will pull you in. When Spaceface loads in for a show, they don’t just bring their gear. The band carries an extravagant light show to every gig, and when they take the stage, the guitarists have lasers attached to the necks of their instruments. A sixth member, Daniel Quinlan, operates hundreds of multi-colored bulbs, lasers, LED rope lights and whatever else the band can get their hands on from side stage. A Spaceface show is as much a production as it is a performance. The band has stolen the light show typical of an arena rock act and made it their own in hopes that they can give showgoers…

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…

Dirty Lungs, StarBenders, Future Primitives

Dirty Lungs.

If you’ve spent any time in Birmingham, Alabama, you’ve seen a Dirty Lungs sticker slapped on something. Though the city’s musical landscape has changed dramatically since the band formed in 2006, the Dirty Lungs are still standing–and they’re just as gritty and focused as ever.
Several tours and member changes have contributed to the constant evolution of their sound. The Birmingham-staple garage-surf outfit has continuously reinvented itself and now moves forward as a four piece. They’ve shared the stage with bands such as British Sea Power, Jacuzzi Boys, The Clientele, and many others. This summer they prepare to release their Communicating Vessels debut.
Their new record is not, by any means, the archetypical Nirvana-esque rehashing of an old Kinks record that seems to egress from every garage in America these days. The influences beneath Dirty Lungs are indeed abounding, and Mitchell’s vocals are the force that unites them all.
To compare Dirty Lungs to any particular album would be unfair–their latest release is an extension of their own sound reinforced by a focused exploration into new musical realms. Produced and Engineered by Michael Shackelford (studiophonic) with mixing by Lynn Bridges, they assured the band’s music would leave listeners anxiously anticipating the…
