Quilty: June 19, 2011 NYCTaper Northside Showcase @ Public Assembly – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

June 24, 2011

[Stills from this video]

Our very first Northside Festival showcase (co-sponsored with Pop Tarts) got off to a heavy, loud and massive start with the Brooklyn band Quilty. Perhaps best distinguished by the fact that Chuck, their bassist, plays a “trombass” – a trombone attached to various effect pedals that give it a variety of bass guitar-like sounds – Quilty get your attention quickly. Vocalist Sadie Dupuis has a voice that shifts gears from sweetly melodic to snarl. Her voice, combined with the band’s huge drums and buzzsaw guitars, can’t help but bring one back to the great bands of the early and mid-90s. The song “Supernova,” in particular, evoked fond memories of the band Veruca Salt, although Quilty do a much better job actually being heavy than that band did trying to transition to that sound after one record. The set was a mix of songs from their excellent full-length, Clover/Coriander as well as some new material, and their live sound rocked even harder than that record. For those still dragging in from day shows, or the previous day’s hangovers, Quilty’s set was a bolt to the brain. They shook the walls of Public Assembly’s front room – heck, they shook my guts – but their songcraft shone through it all.

I recorded this set with the AKG large-diaphragm microphones taped to posts split 5′ apart back by the soundboard to capture the full feel of the room, plus a soundboard feed. The recording is excellent. Enjoy!
