Ty Richards, Austin’s own psychedelic, electric funk artist, stopped by Studio 1A to play a few songs and talk about his new album, Welcome to Flat Earth. Richards told us, “It’s like if a metalhead played synthesizers. It’s a very 8-bit sounding record, everything kind of has a very nostalgia, Nintendo kind of vibe to it.” The band consists of Ty Richards on vocals and guitar, Andrew Nolte on keys and guitar, Jason Decuir on bass, and Garry Franklin on drums. They played a release show at Mosaic Sound Collective on April 20th featuring performances by James Cook and The Cuckoos, and live paintings by The Blue Dozen Collective.
