Angelica Garcia – Lucifer Waiting

Cover image: “Cha Cha Palace” by Angelica Garcia.  Designed by Angelica Garcia, Marissa Alper, Mariela Gavino.  Photography by Marissa Alper.

Angelica Garcia is an artist from Richmond who is starting to light the world on fire. Originally from the L.A. area, her music is absolutely intoxicating, always with a heavy groove, thick beats, and musical elements from her Mexican and Salvadoran roots providing the foundation. The video for her single “Lucifer Waiting” was released a few months ago (April ’20) and like everything else she releases, it’s catchy, captivating and totally addictive. After hearing it once, you won’t find yourself wanting to hear it again so much as NEEDING to experience it again. There’s no real chorus, but her mischievous, sultry, trilling vocals return to the title refrain “Lucifer Waiting In The Corner” over and over and over again until, like the song itself, you eagerly await its return. The kick drum pounds reliably along underneath to a steady 4 that feels like it wants to be coaxed into something faster as the snare shuffles and sways and drags the listener along.  I promise you, as you listen something in you or on you will start moving, if not both.  There’s a darkness to the bass-driven melody which bubbles slowly in a mysterious, smoky E minor vamp, (it actually reminded me of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” which I love) but it also has a celebratory quality to it reminiscent of a street party, something often present in her music. Enough rambling breakdown. Watch the video and enjoy the song. And good luck getting it out of your head.

It should be noted that on this video her RVA-area label Spacebomb Records worked with RVA-area marketing agency and design firm Arts and Letters to create the animation and graphics.

StudioB/RVA S24 E6 Andrew Godfrey – Transylvania Stud, Navaeh

Andrew Godfrey does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to his musical projects Transylvania Stud and Navaeh, with a little help from his friends.  He’s been in bands and had some help with instrumentation, but on the latest TS release “White Witch”, he wrote and plays everything.  We hang out for a meandering conversation that includes making records and shooting videos on a budget (having talented friends with great gear helps), his time in Nashville, underrated bands, lost civilizations and conspiracy theories.
