ST 37: May 6, 2015 Knitting Factory and May 7, 2015 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 2, 2015


ST 37 have been at the game longer than some percentage of their audience had probably been alive. These two NYC sets gave us a much-appreciated amount of exposure to the Austin band, as neither of us had seen them before. Their style, which I might call “psychedelic hardcore”, lends itself to the live setting, where they get the chance to experiment and let their songs grow. We were fortunate enough to catch both sets at Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge that featured completely different setlists. In both cases, we got a nice taste of the band’s range, from more straight-up hardcore numbers like “White Comanche” to meditative jam numbers like “KBDP (Karen Black’s Demerol Patch),” which sounds a bit like the drug referenced in the title. Between these two killer sets, the default winner almost has to be the Mercury set, where tourmate Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple joined the band for “Just You.” Make sure to make a date with ST 37 the next time they’re out your way.

Both of these sets were recorded with Schoeps microphones (mine being MK41V supercardiods, nyctaper’s being CCM4 cardiods) and soundboard feeds. The sound quality of both is excellent. Enjoy!

You can grab the Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge recordings of Acid Mothers Temple from us, too, by the way.
