Heaters: September 26, 2015 Alphaville

October 15, 2015


Considering that Heaters are from Grand Rapids, Michigan, it’s notable how well they conjure a California garage, a Pacific coast parking lot, the beach (and no, I don’t mean Saugatuck, Michigan folks). Schooled in the ways of garage-psych contemporaries like Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and others, the Midwesterners bring their own vibe to the genre, packing a lot into the time of their new record, Holy Water Pool, released by the Brooklyn label Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, a mark of quality among bands of their kind. This was that album’s record release show, at the not-DIY Bushwick venue Alphaville, and Heaters’ tight 39-minute set made as strong an argument for them as a live band as for their record. We heard several of the new songs, including the standout “Detonator Eyes.” You can catch Heaters tonight at their CMJ show at Berlin, on Avenue A. Trust us, you want to do that.

I recorded this set with Audio Technica 4051 cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed from house engineer Theo Klein. The sound quality is quite good for the relatively modest sound system being used. Enjoy!
