Eidetic Seeing have been a fixture in the Brooklyn underground for a few years now, on the strength of two excellent full-lengths. It’s been a stretch since the band’s most recent, 2014’s Against Nature, so it’s not surprising that this set at The Acheron in “East Williamsburg” featured three new songs to go with a tease of Against Nature’s “K2.” This band succeeds by focusing on the strength of the interplay among the members, which is led by Sean Forleza’s intricate guitar work. If you see the places where they play — Acheron is basically a miniature St. Vitus (a compliment if there ever was one) — Eidetic Seeing seem comfortable in the company of heavy bands, but what they’re doing is much more than “stoner metal” or “psych rock” or whatever tag you want to affix to it. This set was perhaps the most entertaining yet of those we have covered for the site, as Forleza, Danilo Randjic-Coleman, and drummer Paul Feitzinger melded these songs into a single piece whose dynamism couldn’t be denied. We hope to hear these songs and more new material from the band soon!
I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in front of the soundboard, with a light amount of soundboard feed to augment the vocals. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
