We have been extolling the virtues of The Loom for three years now, and lately others have followed, including The New York Times, Paste Magazine and The New Yorker. The band has played four shows that we have presented, including most recently our Northside Festival show earlier this Summer. Their set at Northside featured some new material, songs which continue the strength of this band — harmonies, superb instrumentation, and fine songwriting. We were heartened to learn that The Loom should be announcing some exciting news in the near future that will assure a wider audience for them and finally see the release of Teeth, their first full-length record and an album that will cement their position among the best of today’s Americana music. We have selected “The Middle Distance” to stream below. At Public Assembly it was an energetic performance of one of the best tracks from Teeth. The Loom will next be performing at the Daytrotter Barnstorming tour that will come to upstate Ghent New York later this month.

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones mounted above the soundboard room, and mixed it with a board feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
