Antietam has been playing really well lately. We saw them in an opening gig for Yo La Tengo back in December in Philadelphia and the ferocious post-punk trio filled the big room with a superb set. In May, the circumstances were much different, as Antietam opened for Condo Fucks in a surprise show to celebrate Cake Shop’s 10th Anniversary. In the tiny basement room the energy was that much more kinetic. The band ripped through ten songs in forty minutes, including some older tracks but it was primarily strong new material that dominated the setlist. This of course bodes well for the prospect of Antietam releasing a new album. It would be their first since 2011’s Tenth Life.

This is a special week for the band, as Antietam will headline a show at Trans Pecos on Thursday night — a venue that offers the kind of vibe that fits well for a respected non-nonsense veteran outfit. The Facebook invite for this show is here.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted in a thread above the stage and mixed with a board feed. The on-stage mics captured the instruments with great clarity and the board feed was used to fortify the vocals. The result of the mix is a very well-balanced recording with superb sound. Enjoy!
