Fiery Furnaces: December 11, 2009 Music Hall of Williamsburg – Flac and MP3 Downloads

December 13, 2009

[still photo from this video]

The video linked above is from the Bowery Ballroom last night, the second of two shows the Fiery Furnaces played this weekend. After trips to Europe and the West coast, the Furnaces returned home to play Music Hall on Friday night. In a venue with which the band is intimately familiar — they’ve played here going all the way back to its existence as North Sixth, and friends of the band actually live in the building — Fiery Furnaces displayed the incredible musical interplay that has developed within the band. Throughout the night, Matt on guitar and Jason Loewenstein on bass prodded and cajoled each other, at times jokingly misplaying the downbeats (“Automatic Husband”) and during other number expanding the music to newer and deeper places (“Japanese Slippers”). The setlist was somewhat similar to the November show at Maxwell’s, and while this is the eleventh time we have recorded Fiery Furnaces for nyctaper, its the first time we have ever seen “Crystal Clear” and only the second time for “Asthma Attack”.

This set was recorded from the front left corner of the soundboard with the four-microphone rig and the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

    I think that was the best version of Here Comes the Summer I ever heard. Great closer. Thanks NYC Taper.
