Hilly Eye is the duo of singer/guitarist Amy Klein (formerly of Titus Andronicus) and drummer Catherine Tung. The pair formed back in 2009, but just released their debut record, Reasons to Live, on Don Giovanni Records this year, and they joined their labelmates in the middle of a February blizzard to play their new material at the label showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Hilly Eye is the type of act that almost translates better live than on record; the raw immediacy of their raw, slightly shambolic songwriting is naturally appealing on the stage.  Like fellow Don Giovanni labelmates Shellshag (that recording here), Tung and Klein don’t lack for firepower to make their point, even without additional players. The duo deliver songs like “Double Dutch” that tend to be noisy, but not merely for the sake of being so, and are sweetened with a dash of pop sensibility. We’ll call Hilly Eye another win for the Don Giovanni family.

nyctaper and I recorded this set from an optimal spot in the venue using my MBHO cardiod microphones and a perfectly balanced soundboard feed from the house engineer, Jim. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Thanks to Don Giovanni Records for their support and having us at the show.
