Women: March 14, 2009 Music Hall – Flac and MP3 Downloads

March 19, 2009

Women were one of the best bands we saw during CMJ, so obviously we were excited upon their return to NYC. Unfortunately, I could not go that night, so the best new development at this site — the nyctaper correspondent — has let me experience the show. Women have toured extensively throughout the US and Europe since CMJ and the live performance is now tighter and more aggressive than the three times we saw them in October. There were also several excellent new songs performed at Music Hall which bodes well for albums beyond their outstanding debut album.

acidjack recorded this set from the floor in the sweet spot of this venue and the sound quality is outstanding. There is virtually no annoying crowd chatter, until one loud cellphone call occurs briefly during the penultimate song. Otherwise, we have vicariously lived this show through this excellent capture. Enjoy!

    Track 8 is January 8, and I am pretty sure that track 4 is also a new song. Thanks for the recording.
