Back in December, we caught Deer Tick twice at Brooklyn Bowl play complete albums in a look back on their outstanding career thus far. But 2013 is a year to look forward, as Deer Tick has completed a new album Negativity to be released in September. On the current tour, the band is playing quite a few new songs and we caught them early on playing a full sized set at Mountain Jam. Deer Tick played on Friday afternoon, late enough for a large crowd to join them on the Mountain even though most of their set was performed in the pouring rain. The main set mixed old and new in a well-paced show before the band thought their time had expired. Fortunately for us, the Festival allowed Deer Tick to play a couple of more songs — including an inspired Replacements cover that we are streaming below.
I recorded this set near the front of the soundboard area with the Neumann 102 cards underneath a sturdy umbrella. The sound has some issues related to the weather (raindrops on the umbrella, some phasing from the wind), but considering the circumstances we are very pleased with excellent sound of this recording. Enjoy!
