Howard Ivans (birth name Ivan Howard), member of the Rosebuds and Gayngs, also belongs to the Spacebomb family — the label, studio, and collective headed by jazz-rock virtuoso Matthew E. White. On November 19, Ivans will issue a 7-inch led by "Red Face Boy," a smoothly sung, busy-body funk tune that bears relation to the ornate arrangements of White's epic 2012 debut, Big Inner. To hear the track weeks before its official release, hit the play button below.
In December, Ivans will play a slew of shows that'll bring the Spacebomb brain trust out of its Richmond, Virginia hometown and into several cities around the U.S. Scroll down for details.
