My first experience with YVETTE live was a night a few years ago at Death By Audio (RIP) when the band came off the stage and played their show inside of the crowd. The set-up made recording the performance impossible, but the sheer intensity and volume of that performance by YVETTE was astounding and I’ve been following them ever since. Acidjack caught their set at Hopscotch a little over a year ago, and his observations were consistent with mine. In the interim, YVETTE has followed up their superb 2013 debut album Process with a single (“I Don’t Need Anything From Anybody”) that appeared on a Godmode compilation (American Music – GM062) and then released an EP in October called Time Management which is available on cassette and through digital download. This set from a late Thursday night at Trans Pecos draws from all three releases, and continues to astound us in the sheer largeness of it all. You would not believe if you didn’t already know, but the depth of sound coming from the stage derives from a duet with Noah Kardos-Fein on guitar with various electronic enhancements and analog pedals and Dale Eisinger on drums and percussion. The overall effect is compelling and we will undoubtedly continue to follow this outstanding band.
I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted in the front of the stage and mixed with a board feed to fortify the vocals. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
