In July when we first encountered Tonstartssbandt, their impressive performance led us to promise that the band would be featured often on NYCTaper. Well, here they are again. This set was the opening of a really impressive four-band bill presented by Panache Booking at 338 Moffat for Halloween. The venue is basically a private loft space where several local artists reside and the huge living room became a show space and party room for a pretty crazy night. At the point when TSB played, the room wasn’t quite as full or as manic as later in the night, but the band’s set certainly got the night off to a very good start. This was a shorter performance than the show we saw in July, but Tonstartss once again structured the set as essentially one long segue featuring some of the band’s own numbers interspersed with several unique covers. We’re thankful that the duo provided us with the setlist because we were not previously familiar with a band such as obscure Swedish 60s psych band Pärson Sound, a group favorited by TSB in previous releases and which we are streaming below. Its that kind of love of music that makes Tonstartssbandht performances not to be missed. TSB are currently on tour is Asia and Australia, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted at the front and center of the stage and mixed slightly with a board feed consisting primarily of vocals and kick drum. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

    So fine, I can accept this duo is not for everyone, but damn, I guess it’s for me.
    From a truly unique take on Solomon Burke’s “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” that is a little sinister and in no way Blues Brothers to an equally off the wall “Will the Circle be Unbroken”, they sometimes evoke some kind of Fahey/Skip James sensibility.
    There really is a kind of mutant delta blues-gospel thing going on here that I find really compelling.
    I also find it amazing that just two people made this much sound.
    Look, after I came back to this the fifth time (I’m probably on 10 now) I had to accept that I actually like them vocally, too.
    The recording offered here is, as always, very,very good. It is always astonishing to me how well the folks here can capture such a wide range of performances so well.
    Thanks NYCTaper for yet another introduction to something new to me (Prince Rupert’s Drops is another in this category that I owe you for) and wonderful!
