The third week of the Hypnocraft-presented Hum Residency at Manhattan Inn was my own personal first experience with this extraordinary mesh of talents and it was a terrific night. The first set was scheduled to be a duo with our old friend Alyse Lamb from EULA with Alex Nelson of Oracle Room but the group became a trio with the addition of Pamela Martinez (of Teletextile), a veteran of the first week of Hum, on percussion, keys and effects. Their set was a shared group of songs that neither protagonist has ever performed live before, and for Alyse the material was more aligned to her solo project Parlor Walls (who we recorded last year) than to the hard-driving post-punk of EULA.

The second set was performed by another old friend, Jen Goma of A Sunny Day in Glasgow, who has previously appeared on NYCTaper a couple of times. She was joined by Teeny Lieberson (TEEN) and Zoe Brecher (Brainfreeze) for a set that primarily was fueled by dual keyboards and drums until Jen strapped on the strat for the final number. Overall, this trio’s collaborative effort was reminiscent of the synth-driven pop of the aughts but with stunningly precise harmonies.

The final set of the night was a full-on party, which is what we’d expect from a quartet that includes Rubblebucket‘s Kalmia Traver, but which was a true collaboration that also featured Sarah Pedinotti (LIP TALK), Kaila Mullady (champion beat boxer) and Jordyn Blakely (Invisible Familiars). This set included songs written and arranged by all four participants and was a mix of funk and electronica with some amazing harmonies, and also featuring nice bits of baritone sax, beats and some sweet guitar licks. The final song had the whole crowd standing and grooving and ended this fine night in very entertaining fashion.

I recorded this show with the Neumann large diaphragm cardioid microphones on the floor in the center of the performers and mixed with a soundboard feed which provided primarily vocals. The mix of the two sources provided an excellent balance and the sound quality is superb for all three sets. Enjoy!
