Unicycle Loves You: October 22, 2009 Bruar Falls – Flac and MP3 Downloads

[these amazing photos were taken for nyctaper by Kate Ehle — many more here]

The Chicago psychedelic garage-rock quartet Unicycle Loves You opened the NYCTaper CMJ show last Thursday at Bruar Falls in the middle of the afternoon. The band attracted a crowd of fans and friends and displayed during their too-brief twenty-minute set why they were booked for CMJ, completely independently, by nyctaper and Jonny Leather for the same day. That evening they performed at Union Hall as part Jonny’s show. The Bruar Falls set was highlighted by the as-yet-unreleased but destined-to-be-a-hit song “Justine”.

We recorded this set in the same location as the Kittens Ablaze set, but this recording has better balance. Enjoy!

    Can you please take this link down for the Unicycle Loves You album. It is up illegally on your site. You are hurting the band’s chances of getting more promotion by having the whole album up illegally for
    download on your site. Having it up for free on the web really hurts our chances of becoming bigger.

    We would appreciate if you would remove it before we have to take any legal action.


    All kidding aside, thank you again so much for having us, Dan. It sounds great and we had a blast!

    We can’t wait to see you again real soon!
