Night Beats: May 8, 2013 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[Photos by acidjack – the band and recording are much better than these photos]

Last time we saw Seattle’s Night Beats they blew us away with their energy and ability to delivery a set of straight-ahead garage rock full of songs you’d remember the next day. This show at Glasslands found them in the familiar spot of opening for another critically acclaimed band — in this case, Iceland’s Dead Skeletons — and Night Beats gave a performance that was every bit the equal of their earlier headlining set at the Knit. Even more special this time around, the band played almost entirely new material from their next record on Trouble In Mind, which drops in August. The band is not ready to share the titles of them yet, but it’s safe to say that if you dig their first LP and EP, the new songs will make you happy. The new material features some excellent guitar work at points, including some pretty serious shredding during the second of the new numbers. Keep an eye out in the coming months for more info on the new album.

I recorded this set with the Naiant X-R microphones mounted in the venue plus a soundboard feed from Jeremy, the night’s engineer. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

    Thanks so much for putting this set up!

    A few comments on the unnamed tracks (as far as I can tell):
    – 08 [new song 6] – is ‘H-Bomb’ from the TIM 7″.
    – 11 [new song 9] – is ‘Little War in The Midwest’ from the TIM S/T album.
