Jake Ingalls and Eric Martin of Spaceface sit down to discuss their new album Anemoia
Retro-meets-indie rock band Spaceface has just released their long-awaited album called Anemoia and you’re going to want to tune in.
What started in 2019 as a string of popular singles, Anemoia found it’s shape at Blackwatch Studios with producer Jarod Evans (Sufjan Stevens, BRONCHO), bouncing ideas of each other until something stuck. Whether it was a tap of a glass coke bottle or a whim-fully recorded iPhone snippet, they tried it and they seamlessly found a home for it.
The Nashville-turned LA group is comprised of Jake Ingalls (formerly of The Flaming Lips), Eric Martin, Daniel “Big Red” Quinlan, Matt Strong, and Katie Pierce (of Pierced). They all share a love for the abstract, always thinking “how can we make something future-forward, yet maintain a signature, retro vibe?” This is the same thinking that led them to produce their brand new 12-track album Anemoia, featuring hit songs “Happens All The Time” (111K), “Panoramic View” (500k), and “Rain Passing Through” w/ Mikaela Davis. The project as a whole plays on the notion of an upside-down version of nostalgia, longing for a time and place you’ve never even been to or witnessed.
Jake, Eric, and I chatted for a good 30 minutes around the concept of Anemoia and how it shaped their record. Needless to say, I have a new found appreciation for artist’s and their creative mind, trying this and that and everything in between.
So what the hell is Anemoia anyways? Well… I’ll let Jake and Eric give you a quick lesson below.
I want to give a huge thanks to Jake and Eric for taking the time to chat with us. They are hilarious, down-to-earth, and make extraordinary music. Anemoia is out on all streaming platforms now via Mothland. Go do yourself a favor and preemptively hit repeat…
