Few local musicians are harder working than Alyse Lamb of EULA, a band that has graced almost every stage in Brooklyn (including one of ours) in the past few years. When you watch her perform, you realize that the hard work pays off, not only in terms of her songs, but in her presentation. Lamb knows how to put on a great rock show.

Parlor Walls is a bit of a different beast, a stripped-down duo that finds Lamb joined with Chris Mulligan, who mans the drums and keys at the same time. Parlor Walls’ sound is darker and more atmospheric than EULA’s amped-up pop-punk, though Lamb can’t resist those garagey riffs 100 percent of the time. This night at Glasslands was only the band’s second show, but true to form, Lamb and Mulligan had these songs ready for prime time. Among my favorites were the one-two punch of the intro songs, “Animal”, which jammed straight into “Mississippi”, as well as the hard-edged, discordant closer, “Birthday”. While we’re still EULA fans, Parlor Walls is a great way to get to know Lamb’s darker side. Expect more shows from them (and EULA) in the spring and summer around Brooklyn.

I recorded this set with the flawless house mix of Glasslands head engineer Josh Thiel, combined with our installed Naiant X-R cardiod microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

EULA can be found next on May 28 at Baby’s All Right.

    I saw them play, they were phenomenal! I live in Connecticut and they got me out on such a rainy/snowy evening! Nice article!

    Thank you but a heads up. When I tried to unzip the FLACs 7Zip said that tracks 3,6,7 & 8 were broken files

    Traders Little Helper also said those files were truncated or corrupt but decoded through the errors but each track shows to be from 22 seconds to 59 seconds in length.

    Interesting. Not sure why. Anyway, I re-upped both file sets. Should be fine now.

    The re-upped FLACs won’t unzip at all. I’ll try the mp3s instead.

    You probably tried it before they were quite done uploading.
