Derek Spade: “Out of That Mind”

YouTube Preview Image

Hello. We’ve managed to track down the only known Derek Spade video, ‘Out of That Mind’. Spade is the Austin contingent of the outsider artist collective Mindless Vinyls, home of lo-fi neo new wave hobos such as Arc Light and plain beautiful anomalies such as R. Stevie Moore. Derek Spade sounds raw, washed up and double exposed. His songs slip between drugged out, lethargic instrumentals to knockabout room-next-door jams. I can’t really understand what he’s saying. This is either due to my (British) out of touch-ness with hip slang, or the fact that Spade actually records shortly after taking horse tranquilizers. Your call.

Richard Greenan.
