“This is the most people we’ve ever played to. That’s fuckin’ awesome” – Sean Ono Lennon

We had nothing but good things to say about The GOASTT’s performance at SXSW this year, and I’m pleased to report that their Mountain Jam debut was even more well-received. If Sean Ono Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, together with their crack band, didn’t gain some new followers out of the thousands teeming the Hunter Mountain Ski Area on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon, it wasn’t for lack of trying.

The band tore through a set focused primarily on their 2014 release, Midnight Sun, a blast of modern, Beatlesque pop that has taken the band’s sound further in the rock direction than it has ever been. These are perfect songs for this kind of afternoon, with swirling chords and dreamy choruses, all suffused with the sweetness of Ono Lennon’s voice and Kemp Muhl’s harmonies behind them. The set followed the SXSW set fairly closely, kicking off with three of the album’s strongest and hardest-hitting tracks, “Too Deep”, “Xanadu” and “Animals” before hitting a nice mid-set jam of the album’s title track into “Jardin du Luxembourg” from the Le Carotte Bleu EP. By the time The GOASTT closed things out with Syd Barrett’s “Long Gone”, the mountain was full, the sun was high, and hardly anybody wasn’t on their feet. My suspicion is that The GOASTT have many more large audiences in their future.

I recorded this set with MBHO microphones and a high-end EAA PSP-2 preamp on loan from hi and lo. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

    You’re killing it with all these recent music drops! Many thanks for sharing such a wealth of great music.

    The GOASTT will open for Beck at the 6/24 MassMOCA show so I’m curious to give this a spin.

    P.S. Sweden’s Goat hits Webster Hall next week, 6/18. Loved your recording of their last NYC appearance.
