Bridges and Powerlines were the headliners and final band at the nyctaper Anniversary Concert. The new release Ghost Types has received a ton of positive press, from Pitchfork to Current TV to Paste Magazine. Stereo Subversion did a recent lengthy interview [here]. The positive reviews are well deserved, as Ghost Types is a superb collection of alt-synth-pop songs that seem to pull from a litany of influences and yet sound completely original. Their performance at Piano’s on May 11 was short and sweet, rushed by time constraints but long enough for this excellent band to exhibit their pop brilliance.

Bridges and Powerlines will perform again this coming week:
When: Friday May 30, 2008
Where: Cake Shop [MAP]
Time: Doors at 8 p.m.
Note Also: Spanish Prisoners are the 3rd band on the bill

This recording is the same raw soundboard feed as The Loom and Antlers recordings we have posted previously. The mix for B&P is too light on guitar and keys, and we hope to capture a better mix at the show later this week. Enjoy!
