The first time I heard Gretchen Lohse‘s music I was literally left breathless. Her new album Primal Rumble is a minimalist folk record that highlights her beautiful voice and honest lyrics with no pretense or affectation. We invited Gretchen to perform at Trans Pecos based solely on hearing the record — its that good. And to our delight, she accepted and rounded out a terrific bill of powerful female performers. As expected, Gretchen’s set was short on any kind of bells and whistles and long on talent and emotion. We expect that she will reach wider audiences in the not too distant future, but for her first ever solo show in NYC, we can say we were there back then.

acidjack recorded this set in the same manner as the Larkin Grimm recording, with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in the ORTF wide-angle configuration at the stage lip, and a soundboard feed. Other than some volume adjustments that are evident during “Twisted Apples”, the sound quality is  outstanding. Enjoy!
