Angelica Garcia – “Karma The Knife”
Unflinching new Latinx artist Angelica Garcia has just announced her debut London show at The Lexington for 24th October 2019, as well as unveiling the striking visuals for the recently released track “Karma The Knife.” Punching through with psychedelic animated visuals alongside Angelica’s primary colour electro-pop, the video is yet another bold step forward for this tantalizing new talent.
Angelica describes “Karma The Knife”:
It’s about knowing the difference between human error and malintent, and how everything we do in life comes back around to haunt us. My friend Nate Griffith and I made this video at this house using a green screen. We both have a love for the absurd, and aspired to make something fun and kooky like the song.

Spacebomb House Band – V: Gold-Toothed & Lonesome
Sleepwalkers’ new album ‘Ages,’ out now
Today, Sleepwalkers release their new album, Ages. Ages is a bona fide party record that is able to convey a mood of bittersweet elation through a series of well-aimed emotional arcs. The follow-up to their ‘60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), it’s a maximalist pop masterpiece that feels equally effortless, backed by the band’s facility with the structures and language of pop music.
A pop record at its core, Ages wouldn’t be complete without fuzzed-out melodies and lush instrumentation that allows for plenty of repeat listens without ever failing to capture the listener’s attention. – RVA Magazine
Sleepwalkers’s music is a guaranteed prescription for joyful hope – Blurred Culture
tunes unfold like a birthday card, splashes of effervescent sentiment, bright-colored reverence and warm supportive details – Maximum Ink

All Together Now: 15 Years of the Richmond Folk Festival Live, out October 11th
Richmond Folk Festival and Spacebomb Records team up for a special compilation album celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Richmond Folk Festival. All Together Now: 15 Years of the Richmond Folk Festival Live includes select tracks recorded live over the years since the National Folk Festival first came to Richmond in 2005.
The full compilation album will be released on October 11, 2019, the first day of the Richmond Folk Festival. It will be available for purchase in multiple formats, including digital download, CD, standard black vinyl and even an orange and green tie-dye pressed vinyl collector’s edition (only 300 made). All proceeds from sales of the album will go directly to support the Richmond Folk Festival.
“We were absolutely floored when Spacebomb reached out to us about producing the album,” said Venture Richmond Director of Events Stephen Lecky. “I have had the pleasure of working with them on various events like TEDxRVA and Fall Line Fest, but this is totally different than anything we have done before. It’s been a thrilling experience throughout, but it’s also an incredibly daunting task to curate a shortlist of the incredible performances recorded at the Richmond Folk Festival over the years. We’re so grateful to our partners at the National Council of the Traditional Arts for their thoughtful guidance on the track selection.”
The record is a specially curated compilation that reflects the diversity of musical traditions presented at Richmond Folk Festival, which embraces cultural expressions from across the nation and the world. NCTA Artistic Director Julia Olin undertook the task of searching through more than 1,300 hours of archived recordings to identify potential selections. “I must have been crazy,” Olin said. “There were so many magical live performances that I couldn’t resist pulling over eight hours of material – even though only a fraction of it could be included in this project. It was incredibly hard to choose; we wanted to share it all.”
Richmond Folk Festival fans can download the single and pre-order the record now at shop.spacebombrecords.com or at these record stores: Plan 9, Deep Groove, Steady Sounds, 6131, or Small Friend Records & Books.
CDs and standard black vinyl will be available for sale on-site at the festival’s merchandise tent.
“Richmond’s musical footprint is growing nationally and internationally and the Richmond Folk Festival is an important part of the city’s musical story,” Spacebomb Records CEO Ben Baldwin said. “We’re proud to be working with the Richmond Folk Festival to release an important musical document covering the first 15 years of the festival’s history.”
