Infinity Girl don’t seem afraid of the “shoegaze” tag, and while it’s a bit of a lazy one, it’s an accurate description of this Brooklyn band’s tuneful, feedback-drenched sound. What drew me to the band — and this free show they headlined at Muchmore’s, a trendy coffee shop/restaurant/bar/venue at the northern end of Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg — was the quality of the songs behind the noise. While the band has been kicking around for a few years now, their second full-length album, Harm, released in August of 2015, is a leap forward. With its thoughtful guitar work and pleasantly retro production that might make Kevin Shields proud, it’s a strong listen throughout its 15 songs. On the venue’s low stage in front of an animated, moshing crowd, they proved more than equal to their work in the live setting. After this first show of 2016, we’re looking forward to seeing this tight unit some more times this year.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones near the front of the stage to capture both the guitar amps and the (limited) sound from the PA. While the vocals are somewhat buried in the recording — owing mostly to the limits of the Muchmore’s sound system versus the band’s amps and drums — this is remains a fine recording and a taste of more to come. Enjoy!

Infinity Girl has another show on Jan 30 at Palisades, followed by a scheduled date at Rough Trade in March with our friends Dead Stars.
