As you can tell, we’re big fans of Philadelphia’s Spacin’, the minimalist garage-psych mind-meld of Jason and Eva Killinger. Back in April, we booked the band at Trans-Pecos, where they dug out some tunes from their latest record, Total Freedom, which came out on Richie Records earlier this year. A few weeks later, Spacin’ was back in town to open the Philly-centric Heron Oblivion/Chris Forsyth show at Union Pool to complete that stellar bill. Opening up with their take on MC5’s “American Ruse,” the band follows with “Over Uneasy” and “Titchy” off Total Freedom, and then “Empty Mind,” the leadoff track from Deep Thuds. The band have some upcoming tour dates in the Southeast in July—check here for all dates.
I recorded this set from our usual location in the venue, with a board feed from FOH Leah. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
