Austin psych rock outfit The Bright Light Social Hour has premiered their new album ‘Space Is Still the Place‘ in full on Yahoo! Music. To accompany the stream, the band has designed a long animated video to illustrate the 10-track album, out on March 10th via MapleMusic Recordings and Frenchkiss Records.
The band will celebrate the album release on March 5th and 6th with shows at Mercury Lounge in New York. Their full Spring tour kicks off March 31 in New Orleans and will make stops in Atlanta, Tampa, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal and more.
‘Space Is Still the Place’ encompasses the idea of a “Future South,” which was developed by the band after touring across the country, heavily in the South, over the last few years.
Praise for ‘Space Is Still The Place’:
“No matter how much research you put into figuring out who will be the hottest new artists of each year, another act comes into your vision with an output that absolutely blows you away.” - The Huffington Post
“‘Slipstream’, is a lush, space-western odyssey. Rolling in with a plodding bass line and restrained drumming, the track builds slowly before a hypnotic guitar riff oozes into the mix.’” - Consequence of Sound
“This band brings a live rawness that masterfully bleeds into their records. It’s an unmatched je ne sais quoi that makes their sound relatable to the listener and devoid of condescension.” - Life + Times
“The once psych-rock track [Infinite Cities (Francis Preve Remix)] has a whole new sound that may surprise you, as it has taken on a house beat to carry you straight onto the dance floor.” - Earmilk
