Its exciting to watch the development of a new band — particularly one where the members are experienced and talented performers with whom we are quite familiar. At Glasslands on Thursday, Circle of Buzzards performed their fourth-ever gig and the short six-song set packed a lot of punch and promise. Jason Loewenstein’s fuzz bass is complimented perfectly by the aggressive percussion work of Bob D’Amico. While the songs are still in various stages of creation, there is a consistent and cohesive element to the duo’s sound and we will continue to follow this band.
Glasslands received a complete overhaul since our last visit. The upstairs is now more open, and the natural wood railing improves the overall look of the venue. We recorded from in the balcony with the microphones attached to the rail. The soundboard has also been upgraded and there are installed feed cables to the upstairs video area — which the sound tech set us up to utilize. This is quite an excellent recording, if a bit heavy on the vocals from the line feed. Enjoy!
