Dommengang: June 6, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 10, 2015


Dommengang is the latest addition to Thrill Jockey’s roster of some of the finest hard psych bands out there, including Eternal Tapestry, Pontiak, White Hills, Rhyton, and Arbouretum—just to name a few. Celebrating the release of their new record, Everybody’s Boogie, Dommengang stopped by Union Pool this past weekend for a one-off gig to air tracks off that record. Despite frontman Sig Wilson’s insistence that the band hasn’t played together in a year, it doesn’t show as the band immediately syncs into a lockstep groove that doesn’t waver during their thirty-plus-minute set. Underpinning Wilson’s guitar riffage are bassist Brian Markham and drummer Adam Bulgasem. The three are clearly comfortable playing together and after seeing their live set I get the impression that Everybody’s Boogie is one of those albums born of extensive jamming that’s then honed into an album. Favorites here include the chugging “CC,” “Her Blues” (for which the band made a video), and the twangy “Hats Off to Magic.” So far no more live dates have been announced but east and west coast dates are promised in support of Everybody’s Boogie.

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony. Though I got a board feed from Union Pool FOH Kevin, I set the levels a little high and ended up with some distortion so this recording only uses the room mics. However, Kevin’s expertise behind the board and Union Pool’s excellent sound system make for a terrific recording that captures all of Dommegang’s heaviness. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
