Colourmusic, Applied Music Program and Net perform Nov. 30 at ACM Performance Lab

Quirky independent psychedelic rock act colourmusic performs Nov. 30 at ACM@UCO Performance Lab, 329 E. Sheridan Ave., in Bricktown. Opening acts are Applied Music Program and Net. Tickets are $10, available at acm-uco.eventbrite.com.

“We are playing old and new tunes at this show,” Hendrix said. “We plan on destroying. It’s been a while since we’ve played, and we plan on bringing a face melt.”

Composed and produced by Ryan Hendrix and Nick Ley (Flaming Lips, Brothers Griiin), their newest album, called “Swimsuit,” is the most personal the group has produced to date. It was mixed by Chad Petree (Shiny Toy Guns, PC Quest) and mastered by Shelley Anderson of Black Lab Mastering.

The band said the project is “erotic noise, a mixture of rhythmic noise elements, early ’90s pool-party R&B, dream pop, ambient layers and fuzzy bass.”

“Swimsuit” officially drops Feb. 4, 2019 via streaming and digital services and will be available on 180-gram vinyl, but the band has been quietly giving their fans early access through a unique invitation-only campaign.

A direct-from-the-band exclusive 180-gram LP release featuring artwork by painter Samantha French will be available in limited quantities. In line with colourmusic’s decision to work directly with fans, copies of the LP can be pre-ordered/purchased by contacting Colourmusic directly.

The concert is part of the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma’s (ACM@UCO) continuing Metro Music Series celebrating the school’s 10th anniversary. The Metro Music Series is sponsored by Oklahoma Gazette, Exchange Music, KOSU Radio, ArtWorks, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Oklahoma Arts Council.
