Fantasmas are the Brooklyn-based brainchild of Kam Tambini, who along with Austin Formica (guitar), Avi Bajpai (drums) and Adam Glaser (bass/vox) craft aggressive post-punk that adds a melodic element to their distortion-soaked sound.  Tambini hails from Peru, so the band’s set at Glasslands opening for Grandfather appropriately kicked off with a Spanish-language track, “La Maga” before drilling the inspired “Dead Days”, that gave me fond memories of many mid- to late-80s U.S. and British post-punkers.  The band also did an inspired cover of Thurston Moore’s “Hang Out” that left no doubt where their allegiances lay.  Fantasmas have a 7″ available on bandcamp for now, but be on the lookout for their future releases and shows in the area.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Grandfather recording, but had a bit more to work with in terms of the board feed.  The results are excellent.  Enjoy!
