We love these “small world” moments. I had met Daniel Hart of The Physics of Meaning before, although when I enjoyed their impressive set two weeks ago at Union Hall, I did not realize the connection. When we recorded John Vanderslice about a year ago, John spent much of the night praising “Daniel” from his band, who we now know is the talented Daniel Hart. The Physics of Meaning is a quartet that relies heavily on Daniel’s violin (classically trained), his intimate baritone, and the band’s genre-eluding melodic songwriting. The band is has toured extensively in support of their second and latest CD Snake Charmer and Destiny at the Stroke of Midnight, but the Union Hall setlist also included two new solid numbers.

We recorded this set from the same location as The Antlers recording, and the sound quality of this set is quite excellent. Enjoy!
