Unicycle Loves You: September 18, 2010 Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

The last time we saw Chicago’s Unicycle Loves You, it was at our 2009 CMJ show. In the last year, the band has recorded and released their superb second album Mirror Mirror, and on their Fall tour they passed through NYC and played Cake Shop a couple of weeks back. While this set got pushed back from posting due to the Pavement onslaught, readers should not interpret the delay as a lack of enthusiasm of this site for ULY and the new record. Mirror Mirror is a refined take on this band’s crunchy reverb-driven psychedelic pop, and this set featured all tracks from the new album. Unicycle Loves You will return to NYC for CMJ and they are playing our CMJ at Cake Shop on October 21.

I recorded this set as with all shows from this venue, with the DPAs mounted six feet from the stacks. While the vocals are somewhat buried in the mix for this show, the sound has great clarity. Enjoy!
