In October, Motel Motel performed at the NYCTaper CMJ Show at Bruar Falls. That afternoon the band played three brand new songs, two of which did not yet have proper titles. Shortly after CMJ, Motel Motel went into the studio to record their new album, at which they are still hard at work. The band took a break from the sessions to play a show at Union Pool on Thursday night, and Acidjack was there for nyctaper.

Acidjack Reports:
“Motel Motel have been on a bit of a break recording new material. The rest did them good. A packed house at Union Pool saw them tear through six new songs which add new layers of complexity and depth to their country-influenced sound. We expect more great things from this band in 2010.

This set was recorded on my new 4-track machine with a combination of the soundboard feed and the DPA mics clamped to the rail. While you can hear some of the action from the bar below during quiet parts, the sound is excellent. Enjoy!”
