Bloodsugars June 21, 2008 After The Jump Fest – Flac and MP3 Downloads

July 9, 2008

The aptly-named Bloodsugars performed a short but, um, sweet set at the After The Jump Fest indoor Galapagos stage on June 21. The silky-smooth tenor belongs to lead vocalist Jason Rabinowitz, whose life-long battle with diabetes provides the basis for name of the band. The new 2008 release EP on Engine Room is entitled BQEP, and features six songs of addictive power-pop. The nyctaper recording offered below features five unreleased songs, the high quality of which bodes well for an anticipated full-length release.

This outstanding capture is a soundboard/audience “matrix” mix recorded in the same location and with the same equipment as our Brilliant Sweaters recording featured here a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!
