On the very busy Northside Festival weekend, there was so much good music going on in Williamsburg that you could walk into just about anywhere and find good music. Our friends at Backyard Brunch Sessions added their own excellent contributions to that mix, with sets from Givers (click for the recording) and the singer-songwriter Tristan Clopet. It took a whole team of us to cover as much music that weekend as we could, so while I packed up and headed to McCarren Park to record Guided by Voices, hi and lo hung out and caught this fantastic set from Mr. Clopet. He originally hails from Toronto, but more recently went to school in Miami, FL (as well as a summer at Boston’s Berklee College of Music), and the vibe of the hot-weather locale shows through in the feel-good vibe of songs that are easy to imagine wafting from dorm room windows onto the quad, or (for the post-college crowd) being played in backyards across America. They are good, honest, American songs that don’t ask too much of you, but give a lot in return. Tristan has just released a full-length album, Name It What You Want, capably produced by two experts at similarly approachable music, Raymond Richards (Local Natives) and Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend). Another highlight of the album’s production (for our purposes, at least) is that BBS founder Dave Chaitt sings backup vocals on the album. It being his backyard and all, Chaitt joined Tristan at the mic for backing vocals on “A Summer in Sussex,” the kickoff track to the record.

hi and lo recorded this set with Schoeps microphones, and the sound is outstanding. Enjoy!
