Local one-man-psych-band Ty Richards is an up-and-coming music auteur, writing, recording, performing, and producing all of his own music, fortifying himself as a truly independent musician. His 2015 debut single “Shoulda Woulda Coulda” gained momentum in the states and across the pond, and landed him some stellar praise from iHeartRadio and Europe’s Radio X. It all leads up to the release of his debut album early next year.
“Spaceman” is a song meant to elicit big grins and bumping heads. It’s fun, psychedelic and laid-back–a pleasant reminder that music is meant to be enjoyed presently and neither the musician nor the listener has to be in any hurry to reach a raucous climax or get to the end. Just relax, move your noggin, and enjoy the slow-burn.
“Spaceman” appears on Zillion, out February 3rd via his Bandcamp.
