We had such a good time when we saw Love Is All twice in June [recording] and [review], that we decided to repeat the experience in almost identical fashion — an intimate show at a tiny venue combined with a larger affair. When Love Is All opened for Of Montreal at Roseland on Friday last, the crowd was only about half full, but from our balcony view we could see about 20 rows of people pogo-jumping to their infectious proto-punk-pop. The setlist was similar to the June show, but as Love Is All is releasing a new album A Hundred Things Keep Me up at Night in November, a couple of new songs were performed.

Five days later, Love Is All played a secret ToddP show at the tiny Monster Island (pictured above). Similar to their Cake Shop show in June, this was an incredible show as the sweaty band and fans packed together with a celebratory energy and intimacy. We were fortunate to have arrived early to set up and had a nice chat with Marcus (drummer) who was so supportive of our work and our previous recording of the band. NYCTaper even got a Love Is All t-shirt for free! Thanks to Marcus, Love Is All, and ToddP for access and permission.

These two recordings are as different as the experiences. The Roseland recording is a full soundstage capture with rich bass and full instrument presence. It was captured from the same location as the Of Montreal recording, and is marred briefly only by a few bursts of static from the stage microphones early in “Wishing Well” and at a few points afterwards. For the Monster Island recording, we set up in the middle of the crowded room about 20 feet from the main speakers. The result is an intimate up-close feel with perhaps a bit less presence than the Roseland show. We are extremely pleased with both recordings and feel that each accurately represents the unique shows that this excellent band performed. Enjoy!
