Split Single is the latest effort from guitarist Jason Narducy, best-known for his bands Verboten and Verbow before kicking off a second career as a sideman in various acts including Bob Mould, Superchunk, and Robert Pollard. Narducy’s long career inspired a whole generation of artists, most notably Dave Grohl, and his new album Fragmented World suggests that he best belongs front and center. You might’ve heard of Narducy’s own sidemen in this effort before, too — that’d be Spoon’s Britt Daniel and drummer Jon Wurster, who’s played with Superchunk, the Mountain Goats, Bob Pollard and many others.

This show at Glasslands was, if anything, proof positive of the power of experience. Narducy and his companions played the Fragmented World material with precision, one song after another delivering on the promise of carefree, infectious power pop without losing momentum. These are songs that feel good to listen to, and that makes them work all the better in the live setting. Appropriately, Narducy was joined for the album’s title track by another player whose recent career was defined by side man work — Doug Gillard (who we saw recently) — who added his guitar work to that sweet short burst of pop perfection. We’re glad Narducy’s back in the spotlight again.

I recorded this set with our installed rig in the venue, featuring Naiant X-R cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed by the night’s engineer Chris Madden. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
