January 7, 2010

Babies is the new band formed by Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls and Kevin Morby of Woods. The band’s sound however bears very little stylistic resemblance to either. Last night at Glasslands, the quartet performed a nine-song twenty-seven minute set of straightforward girl-boy vocal guitar rock with an electric stage energy sometimes not seen from their more sedate day job bands. The result was one of the more rambunctious crowds in the many times we have been to this Brooklyn art space venue. While the band’s MySpace page features the two recorded tracks from Babies thus far, last night’s set contained enough solid material for a full length album that we anticipate will see release this year.

We recorded this set from directly in front of the soundboard area and mixed two microphones with a two-channel feed from the board. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
