As far as band names go, Spacin’ is a perfect fit. The Philly psychedelic rock foursome features members of Birds of Maya and Acid Kicks and, like both of those bands, it bends heavy guitar riffs into expansive explorations all across its tremendous debut, Deep Thuds. The most exciting thing about the record, though, isn’t just its trippy sonic shamanism, but the breadth of stylistic territory it covers. You’re just as apt to hear a washed-out, lo-fi number as you are a straightforward Stones-y garage jam – like today’s Philly Local Phile, “Sunshine, No Shoes.” Once you download the song, and its sufficiently rocked your afternoon, make plans to catch the band live next month. It plays Kungfu Necktie on Sunday May 13; opening is Hippy Johnny, the new project of the equally spacy Brendan Codey and Dan Svizeny of Cough Cool.
