Jeremy Messersmith November 22, 2008 Union Hall – Flac and MP3 Downloads

“Yeah, Minnesota!” we heard from behind us in the crowded Union Hall on Saturday night. Jeremy Messersmith had just finished one of the songs on his Minneapolis-based new CD The Silver City, when we surmised that we were among either some transplanted midwesterners in Prospect Park Brooklyn or just fans of superb melodic folk-rock with a midwest charm. Jeremy performed a too-brief thirty minute set of selections from his two excellent CDs and undoubtedly gathered some new converts. When we spoke to this modest and unassuming young man after the show, he seemed quite genuinely moved by the positive reception he received a full 1500 miles from home.

We recorded this set from an excellent location, as we attached our microphones to the metal bar that holds the stage lights in front of the stage at approximately 15 feet. The sound quality is well balanced and deep and this recording is marred only by an extremely chatty group of people who spoke unbelievably rude and loud during the first song. At the beginning of the second number they were literally told to “shh” by half a dozen people and did so. The rest of the recording is nearly flawless. Enjoy!
