Yvette represent the best things about New York, including their creative daring, uncompromising sound, and their homegrown fledgling label Godmode. When Pitchfork anointed their album Process with a positive an accurate review last year, the site’s Stuart Berman accurately described the duo as sounding “like an army”. Indeed, between drummer Dale Eisinger and vocalist/guitarist Noah Kardos-Fein produce a kind of high-intensity noise that brings to mind everything from mechanical sounds to the foreboding tones heard in certain kinds of Hollywood disaster films — if they were made by an industrial art-punk band.

This set took place at CAM Raleigh on the Hopscotch Music Festival’s first night, and despite the torrential downpour and the far-flung location, the band brought a dedicated crowd to the art museum’s cavernous performance space. This mix of new material and songs from their 2013 record Process was delivered as a seamless piece, further proving the duo’s impeccable timing. The set proved an emotionally taut thirty minutes, with dissonance tones flowing in and out of the frame, the sound hitting screeching climaxes before retreating into shadowed valleys. Yvette fall into that group of bands who are probably best experienced in the live setting, where the listener can’t flip away from band to band. You need to follow Yvette where they’re going, for the duration, to capture just how good they are at what they do. Thurston Moore was up next in an improvised set with Steve Shelley. Yvette gave him a tough act to follow.

I recorded this set with Audio Technica cardiod microphones split wide at the stage lip together with a soundboard feed. There stereo separation and sound quality in general are outstanding, among the very best of my recordings from the festival. This is offered as a streaming full set as well as a download below. Enjoy!
