Spaceface w/ Analog Moon, Giant Giants tonight at The Mothlight in West Asheville


This looks like a great show tonight at The Mothlight in West Asheville.

Spaceface is an original Psychedelic Rock band from Memphis, TN. Formed in 2012, the band blends unique soundscapes, catchy vocals, raw energy, and a professional light show in order to create a truly memorable experience.

They are currently working on their first album, a self-titled EP which will be available for vinyl and free download in the Fall.

Since their recent formation, they have been involved in two collaborative records assembled by The Flaming Lips to give tribute to King Crimson and The Stone Roses. These records were sold on limited edition colored vinyl and featured artists such as Ke$ha, Policia, Peaking Lights, New Fumes, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, HOTT MT, and Linear Downfall.

Analog Moon is a band of ideas. The approach is mercurial, while the instrumentation is grounded in the gritty palette of early 70s rock and roll. The band takes nods from The Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, and many other great artists and bands of this period. The structure and crafting of the original material is rooted in this period of maturing psychedelia but also draws from the pop sensibilities of the 80s and alternative attitude of the 90s. The band doesn’t fail to consider its contemporaries as well. Listed right alongside these classic influences are current bands such as The Flaming Lips, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, and The Arcade Fire. Analog Moon is able to take all of these influences and still deliver something fresh to the listener. Each performance is delivered with an immediacy that belongs in rock and roll. The music is strangely familiar but in the now. The Analog Moon live experience is not something that one will soon forget, and each performance leaves the listener as well as the performer wanting more.

Giant Giants is an Asheville/Atlanta based music project headed by UNCA Music graduate Reid Weigner. Begun as a solo project in 2009, Giant Giants has expanded and evolved to include many talented musicians based in the Southeastern US from bands such as Reptar, Hello Hugo, and Baby Rattlesnakes. In live form, the music has a heavy percussion emphasis often including up to 4 percussionists at any given moment. Giant Giants currently has one release out, called “A Place I’d Like To Meet You” on the Asheville based label Diatom Bath. New albums are currently in the works, including an album featuring the music played by the Ensemble.

Reid Weigner also plays with Asheville based math rockers Hello Hugo and Athens based astronaut popers Reptar.
