We will be seeing The Loom again tonight, Saturday January 9 at Mercury Lounge at the late show opening for Rural Alberta Advantage. I remembered that we had not yet posted the recording of their excellent set from the NYCTaper CMJ show at Bruar Falls. It was a busy CMJ week for the Loom, who followed this excellent Thursday afternoon appearance with a gig at brooklynvegan’s loft party on Friday night that earned The Loom some nice buzz. Following CMJ, the band went into the studio to record for their second release and first full length album, which will be released later this year. This CMJ set features all new material, four songs of which we had never seen the band play live before.

The Loom have four more local gigs in January and February before they head to Austin and SXSW in March:
Jan 16 2010 Pianos
Feb 12 2010 The Studio @ Webster Hall
Feb 13 2010 Glasslands
Feb 28 2010 Pianos

This set was recorded with two microphones directly in front of the stage mixed with a soundboard feed. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
