Soft Bullets are a very, very new band consisting of the transatlantic (NYC and London) duo of Christopher Wall (keys, vocals) and Dan Capaldi (drums, vocals). This show at the Knitting Factory represented their first-ever U.S. gig, though you wouldn’t have known it from the level of polish and originality on display. With keys and drums only, the pair manage to make complex, dynamic songs that offer hints of Britpop, jazz, and krautrock. Wall’s vocals give an undeniable nod to Thom Yorke, but the band’s overall vibe is less dark and a bit more jazz-oriented. The band has a tremendous amount of promise, and we look forward to their future efforts.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and an excellent soundboard feed from the Knitting Factory team.  The sound is flawless.  Enjoy!

    Wow – how good is this. Love this band and saw Chris’s previous band Air Traffic on a few occasions. Soft Bullets have two singles/EP’s out now and both are incredible. Thanks for this post – MAGIC!
    Cheers
