ArpLine: January 27, 2010 Mercury Lounge – Flac and MP3 Downloads

ArpLine’s music fits well into the current musical moment, with rock and electronic elements combining to make a cohesive whole.  Some of their songs fall clearly into the radio-friendly camp (”Parts Unknown”), while others are more atmospheric, such as the Radiohead-referencing “Cap”.  While the focus of this excellent bill at Mercury Lounge was on headliners Bear In Heaven and second opener Oh No Ono, ArpLine started the night off extremely strong, giving a set that featured virtually all of their outstanding new album, “Travel Book”. Vocalist Sam Tyndall and the band were on point sound-wise, and made the case that their songs translate well in the live setting.  Expect to see this excellent Brooklyn band in a lot more places by the end of this year.

I recorded this set from the same location as the Bear In Heaven recording, but without the soundboard feed.  The quality is excellent and there is almost no crowd noise.  Enjoy!
