"Fade Into Existence"
Living Space was one of 20 artists/bands on
The WSVNRadio Hall of Fame, Volume 9,
WSVNRadio's continuing series of music promotions of unsigned/independent
artists. "Down In Denver" was the chosen song from their album Fade Into
Existence. From San Francisco, this original band writes their own music in the
styles ranging from ska to punk to rock. Fade Into Existence was their second
album, in late 2002.
The opening track, "19 Lines" is a simple rock song, where it gets
heavier in sound at times, where "U.S." is a more traditional, bouncy
pop song. "Gamez" is a small experimental instrumental. "Don't
Be Long" has a sense of mystery, almost having a more industrial sound.
"Stay Up" is a great song, having a somewhat jazz feel.
"Officer, He Made Me Do It" is another rock/pop number, almost in
comparison to the later years of XTC. "Bad Bunch" has a more pop sound,
as it defines Living Space's sounds heard in previous songs. "Running To A
Train" is a very catchy pop song, like in the style of ska or even reggae.
Catchy pop as in XTC is heard on "Happyface" "Boo Mae" is another
experimental song, with a sense of mystery, and quite different than the catchy
pop tunes previously heard.
Fade Into Existence experiments in song writing dealing with growing pains
and contemplation, which explains the moodyness of some particular songs. Their catchy
pop tunes are very noticeable, and very entertaining. If you're a fan of such bands as
Blur, The Smiths, U2, Radiohead, Weezer, and Green Day, Living Space is the band you just
want to listen to. The songwriting trio members Coop R. Fransis (vocals, guitar), Trevor
Contreras (guitar, vocals), and Kevin Costa (bassist, vocals) will acknowledge the pop fan's
attention, will want to give this album more repeated listens. WSVNRadio is proud to have
the catchy pop style of Living Space in their entourage. Fade Into Existence is a
good album, and listening to it more, it will be enjoyed even more.
