The resurgence of the “space rock” genre is ever growing and full of very talented bands. Florida’s Digicide is part of that pack. Having been included on a recent Hum tribute album, their debut album Far From Home stretches past their influences of Hum, Failure but also Deftones, Quicksand and Autolux. Jonathan Whittaker’s voice has the same charm as Ken Andrews, while at the same time a voice all his own. Larry Suglio does a tremendous job on the music. The riffs, are heavy yet full of melody and fits the space rock mold perfectly. Songs like “Anchors & Astronauts,” “Confines,” “Gated,” and “Hypothesis” are epic in nature. Currently they are putting the pieces together for a live band.
