January 7, 2015

You would be only half right in assuming that a band called Baked trades in hazy jams suited more to the night’s comedown than its revving up. That’s not to say they don’t do hazy jams—nine-minute set-closer “Tolex” is proof enough of that. But they also deliver some rocking indiepop that takes unexpected turns.

Baked is a Brooklyn-based quintet composed of R.J. Gordon (vocals/guitar), Davey Jones (guitar), Jeremy Aquilino (bass/vocals), Yoni David (drums), and Isabella Mingione (keys/vocals). Their debut LP, Debt, is out on Exploding in Sound Records and they’re right at home among that label’s amazingly consistent roster. I caught Baked last Friday at Palisades, headlining a stacked bill that also included Brooklyn’s Washer (that set posted here) and Connecticut’s Furnsss. For this set, Baked pull mostly from last year’s Debt, adding “8er” from their self-released, self-titled cassette, and a couple newer tracks (“I Win” and “AA”). Highlights include “Hungry Ghosts,” the aforementioned longform jam of “Tolex,” and the upfront keyboards and reverbed vocals on the rocking “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.”

I recorded this set with the AKG cardioids at the soundboard, plus a feed from Palisades FOH Ariel. The sound is slightly rough around the edges, but authentic to the night’s experience. Enjoy!
