Fergus & Geronimo: February 23, 2011 285 Kent – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

March 7, 2011

They hail from Denton, Texas and their label is based in Seattle, but on Wednesday last, Fergus & Geronimo seemed perfectly at home in a DIY warehouse in Brooklyn. Their eclectic and multi-influenced album Unlearn (Hardly Art) comprised about half their set, but the songs took a decidedly more garage-rock sound in the live setting. This was appropriate, considering that they anchored a five-band late night set at a classic ToddP event. Fergus & Geronimo are currently tour out West, but will play a handful of shows at SXSW before returning to the East coast. They will appear at Death By Audio on April 2.

I recorded this set with with hypercardioid Neumann microphones mixed with a feed from the board. The sound in the warehouse was quite boomy and the board feed was vocal heavy, but the overall mix provides a fine listening experience. Enjoy!
