November 8, 2014

Mainland seems poised for fairly certain success. They write instantly likeable pop songs and have all of the other ingredients that make bands of their ilk popular — looks, personality and obvious musical chops. We invited Mainland to play a top of the bill spot on our CMJ Day Party in large part because it seemed so obvious when we first heard their music that this band will be in the fastlane to big things in the very near future. At this point, their outstanding debut EP Shiner is the entirety of their recorded output, but a full length album is not far behind. And apparently we’re not alone, as Mainland has garnered some great press surrounding CMJ and elsewhere, including a high profile piece in Interview. The band’s appearance at our show was exactly what we had hoped for — a very well attended high-energy set which included Shiner tracks (the title track streaming below) and several new numbers we anticipate will appear on their forthcoming long player. Mainland will next perform in NYC next weekend, November 15 and 16 at the Gramercy Theatre, opening for The Matches.

Acidjack recorded this show in the exact same manner as the previous sets from this show (Schoeps Onstage + SBD) and the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!
