We have featured Cymbals Eat Guitars several times on this site (most recently, a headlining Bowery show from last year), and we have always found their willingness to take risks refreshing. Not content to simply rework the more poppy sound of their breakout album, Why There Are Mountains, the band remain unafraid to take things in a more caustic direction. This Bowery Ballroom show found the band opening for Cursive (which we recorded, and will post if the band gets back to us about approval…), but the packed house for their set suggested equal fervor for these Staten Island natives.  The set focused on material from their latest record, Lenses Alien, but this also included some earlier favorites like “Indiana” and of course, “And the Hazy Sea”.

We recorded this set with a four-mic setup, but I thought the Sennheiser MKH-8040 source was sufficiently good to stand on its own.  We hope you agree. Enjoy!
