New York City Queens


I was handed a CD from Ky Meyer over at Newsfix's "Tuned In". She should know a thing or two about good music right? Its the New York City Queens. I Popped it in and thought, "Damn! They are from Houston? My Houston?" This band is awesome and leading the way for all of us to get better music to Spacedcity. They seems to have it all going for them, I had a little trouble picking what video to show all you eager readers out there. So I decided to post three. I hope every single one of you to go out and buy this CD, or at least are inspired to step your game up.

Back Again... and so is Mogwai!!

What's up all my Spaced Cadets out there?  
WaltIV has resigned commission and advanced me to acting captain. 
Star Trek References. 
You can check out WaltIV new site at Hops 'n Drops, check it out and good luck to him. Thank God for Facebook or I'd still be in limbo. I have big plans for this name and could never let all you Spaced Cadets go.
Anyways my friends its time to take a wild journey, and while are on this journey we are going to listen to Mogwai's new Remix album, A Wretched Virile Lore. We can thank Sub Pop for putting out the Hardcore will never die, but you will record. You can get a limited edition colored vinyl version November 23rd and the CD version on December 4th. 
But guess what? I have the track "George Square Thatcher Death Party" right down there. Pitchfork has a list of all the remixed songs.

SpacedCity and Friends at Free Press Summerfest 2012

Sorry I'm late, but better late than never. We got our suites downtown, so no one would have to be the designated driver. Free Press never fails to impress, started off with Best Coast, then Z-RO, Diplo, Two Door Cinema Club, Over to Major Lazer, back for the end of Erykah Badu & the Cannibiniods, Over to Snoop Dogg, then ended the day with The Flaming Lips. Ya, I had a good weekend, and that was only saturday. We had some libations to the rock gods, and met some beautiful people. ;) yes that is a winky face. Sunday begun with Fat Tony, moved over to Young The Giant, and smoked during Willie Nelson, like a check off a bucket list, we moved for Danny Brown. We watched The Avett Brothers, and ended the night jamming Pretty Lights. I can't really express to you how amazing this weekend is, and gets better every year. I made this little video with a bunch of pictures, and clips of the experience. Hopefully it will convince you to get your damn tickets for next year.

live in spaced city: woods at rudyards 29 april 2012

Young Reevesy took the Metro downtown on Sunday to go shopping for furniture. He returned with an amazing pair of 80's neon shorts and a bit of news: Woods are having a show at Rudyard's. This made sense as they will be at Austin Pscyh Fest the night before, and I have the official information for all you readers out there. Woods are not a band to skip out on and I must say I have not been more pumped for a show since maybe Beach House and Washed Out. Check out what you can expect to hear below and be sure to say hello to us next Sunday at Rudyard's on Waugh near West Gray.

It's here! Emay just dropped his debut album "Adam" on the world a mere 20 minutes ago. I'm only one song in. The excitement to hear this one has been building since yesterday. It's going to get wild. Roll yourself up something nice or pack your bowl up full. Emay is one of the most talented rappers ever, and when you count the fact that he also produced the whole record, it's easy to say that he deserves all of the recognition he's getting.
