Psych-Rockers Spaceface Oxford’s Swear Tapes Playing Proud Larry’s March 23

Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls who also plays guitar and synthesizer in The Flaming Lips, And the show reflects that influence. Spaceface works to bring the concert grade experience to a club level employing a DIY light rig and other theatrical elements. They have two Ep’s that were released in the past year, the first recorded at Pink Floor Studio in Oklahoma City and second at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.

They have been a touring band for 4 years playing shows and festivals all across the country, including Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama, SXSW in Austin, Treefort Music Festival in Boise, Idaho, and ACM Fest in Oklahoma City. Some of the acts Spaceface has toured and worked with include a broad range of genres like Phantogram, The Flaming Lips, Bright Light Social Hour, Young Buffalo, Prince Rama, Swimm, Morgan Delt, Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Electric Wurms. Spaceface has just finished recording a full length LP this winter and is mixing and mastering now, to be released as soon as this summer, followed by a national tour.

Swear tapes is the solo project of Jim Barrett, previously of widely popular indie psych-rock band Young Buffalo. Swear Tapes pulls from nostalgic indie sounds that meld with the driving psych-rock rhythms to get your foot tapping and head bobbing.

This will be the second time Spaceface and Swear Tapes have teamed up for a show in Oxford. Do not miss a chance to catch these two acts before they are headlining every festival in the country.

Spaceface and Swear Tapes share the bill with Memphis indie-rockers China Gate. China Gate,the brain child of Tiger Adams, brings a mixture of sounds similar to Elliott Smith and Coner OberstThe Local Voice Ligature
