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.

The Audiovore presents: Dance Yrself Clean feat. EMEFE and Looksy

 

EMEFE

EMEFE’s new EP, Time picks up where their May 2015 self-titled release left off – a genre-bending, body and thought provoking, mesmerizing dance party train whizzing past you, lifting you up off of your feet for the ride. EMEFE’s unique rhythms draw you in and move you; their layered vocals lead you… every moment matters. With Time, EMEFE moves their style forward, consolidating and focusing ideas they have been exploring for 5 years. Their afrobeat influence is omnipresent but covert, subtly tangled up with funk drum machines, rock riffs, and synths from outer space. The Time EP presents five statements of intent for their future, altogether screaming that there are no bounds on this band’s creativity and expression, and this is only the beginning. The DNA of EMEFE has never changed, but the body it inhabits is ever-evolving.

The musicians in EMEFE have shared the stage or studio with The Roots, CHIC, Arcade Fire, Tuneyards, My Morning Jacket, Mark Ronson and more. As a band, EMEFE has collaborated with artists such as Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Antibalas, Hoodie Allen, Lafa Taylor, Baloji, Chico Mann, Superhuman Happiness, Big Sam’s Funky Nation,…

CukoRakko Summer Series at Trim Tab Brewery presents Albert Simpson

The CukoRakko Music and Arts Festival hosts the CukoRakko Summer Series at Trim Tab Brewery every Wednesday throughout July. This Wednesday, they play host to Gadsden, AL’s Albert Simpson. Simpson performs mostly solo with the acoustic guitar while utilizing percussion instruments. Simpson’s folksy back porch flavor makes his music feel like an old friend. After performing for over twenty years, this artist is now known as one of the best solo acts on the scene. His southern fried folk funk flavor is intoxicating! After recording with Johnny Sandlin, who produced great acts like The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic, Johnny brought his expertise to “Don’t Wake Albert”, which was Albert’s first studio project. The CD received raving reviews in publications such as: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Relix, and Hittin’ the Note. It has even been said that it ranks as one of Johnny’s best projects, and parallels his work on Widespread Panic’s landmark second album.

Albert’s current CD, Roll Your Mind, features Albert playing every instrument. Not only did Albert play all the instruments and write the songs, he also helped produce the record with the help Mark…
