of Montreal – Roseland Concert Preview – Bonus Lossless Download March 9, 2007

October 11, 2007

of Montreal‘s Hissing Fauna is on the short list of best CDs of 2007. On Saturday October 13, they return to New York for a performance at Roseland Ballroom. The two sold-out shows in March were outstanding, and featured a healthy dose of the new album. The word is that there are new unreleased songs in the setlist this tour from a forthcoming album tentatively called “Skeletal Lamping”. I will be there with my microphones and stand, since lead guitarist “The Late B.P. Helium” has given me permission to record this show.

In March, I was fortunate to have attended one of the Irving Plaza concerts, and also recorded with permission. Thanks to the of Montreal staff and Irving Plaza, I was able to set up my microphone stand in the center of the floor in front of the soundboard overhang. The results are excellent.
