Spacin’: May 28, 2016 Union Pool

June 15, 2016


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!

Spacin’: April 30, 2016 Trans-Pecos

Our readers may have noticed that we’ve been producing and promoting a lot of shows this year. In the past we dabbled with showcases and occasional nights, but with our involvement in Market Hotel and its sister venue Trans-Pecos, we will be presenting roughly one or two shows a month for the foreseeable future. This past month, our guests were the phenomenally underappreciated Philly psych/garage outfit Spacin’. The nice part of producing your own shows is the ability to select the bands — and we were extremely pleased that Spacin’ accepted our invitation. We’ve been fans of the band for quite some time, going all the way back to a magical night at 285 Kent in 2013, and then again at Hopscotch later that year. And Spacin’ was everything that we’d hoped at Pecos. The set was a mix of material old and new, including two songs from the band’s 2016 album Total Freedom, the live debut performance of brand new “I Don’t Know What to Do About It”, and a cover of the 90s punk band Dead Moon. But details and descriptions aside, the best evidence of the phenomenal performance of Spacin’ is to just listen to this recording — its crackling with energy and authenticity. We said back in 2013 that we were never going to miss another Spacin’ show in NYC. And in 2016 we had to make it happen ourselves, and will hopefully get that chance again.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards at the front of the stage picking up the live sound from the band’s amps and mixed that with a fine board feed provided by house FOH Chris. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Spacin’: April 4, 2013 285 Kent – Flac/MP3/Streaming

April 17, 2013

The band Spacin’ began as the solo project of Jason Killinger, who was also a member of Birds of Maya. Philadelphia has produced a plethora of superb gargage-influenced music over the last several years and Killinger’s contribution is no less impressive than others such as Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs, and Purling Hiss. In fact, Killinger teamed with Purling Hiss’ Mike Polizze in Birds of Maya, and their solo bands just completed a tour together. On Thursday last, we caught Spacin’ opening for the Hiss at 285 Kent and their set, although short in song titles and total time was a superb neo-psych/garage workout which included a couple of numbers from their debut album Deep Thuds, a couple of apparent new songs, and a killer cover the the MC5’s “American Ruse” (streaming below). Now that Spacin’ is on our radar, we won’t miss their NYC shows.

This set was recorded in the same manner as the Purling Hiss set and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!
