Prussia is a self-described “experimental pop” band from Detroit. With two keyboards, often three guitars, and a range of sound effects to supplement the unique vocals of singer Ryan Spencer, Prussia is at the forefront of the burgeoning Michigan underground music scene. Last week, the band traveled to NYC for CMJ and performed seven times. We were fortunate to have them play at both shows we hosted this year — the NYCTaper CMJ show at Cake Shop on Thursday and the Golden Ratio / BirdDog Promo / NYCTaper show at Cameo Gallery on Saturday. Prussia played in the second slot for both shows, but the early afternoon set time did not detract from their energy or musical prowess. Behind all of the inventive experimental indie is simply five outstanding musicians. Prussia’s third release is their new album Poor English, which is available in a “name your price” format on Bandcamp. Their set included four of the new songs, two of which are streaming below.

I recorded the Cake Shop set in the same manner as all the of the recordings already posted from that day and the sound quality is superb. The Cameo Gallery recording is a mix of the Neumann microphones on a stand in front of the soundboard booth and mixed with a soundboard feed. The room is a boomier than Cake Shop, so that while the sound is quite excellent, its a very different recording from the Cake Shop one. Enjoy both!
