Back in October, fresh off their sell-out coming-out show at Joe’s Pub, Emanuel and The Fear played the NYCTaper CMJ show at Bruar Falls. Their thirty minute set was well received by the crowd, as the nearly dozen band members squeezed onto to the small stage. For the last several months, the band has been in the studio and finished their debut full-length, which is due on March 9.

On March 10, Emanuel and The Fear will celebrate the release of the album Listen with a special show at Gramercy Theatre that features the NYU Symphony Orchestra, along with The Fear — which increases the size of the band from eleven to 25!

This CMJ show was recorded with the Neumann microphones on stage mixed with a feed from the soundboard. While its not a multi-track that would be necessary to capture an ideal recording of this band, the sound quality is nevertheless quite excellent. Enjoy!
