Acid Mothers Temple: April 5, 2016 Mercury Lounge

Acid Mothers Temple

The cost of touring being what it is, there aren’t many Japanese bands that make it to the U.S. as frequently as Acid Mothers Temple. Their yearly tour has become ritual, for the band and its audience. NYCTaper has been capturing the band’s New York appearances for the past few years—always a stop on the Lower East Side at Mercury Lounge, and one in Williamsburg at the Knitting Factory. I’m delighted that this year I got to do my part and record the Mercury Lounge show. The “Wake to a New Dawn of Another Astro Era Tour 2016” wraps up next week in Los Angeles, having begun last month in Mexico City. Through the month-long visit, setlists have been fairly consistent and their Mercury Lounge set features most of the songs they’ve been playing, including “La Novia,” “The Wizard,” “Another Nanique Dimension,” “Cometary Orbital Drive,” and of course it wouldn’t be an Acid Mothers Temple show without their signature “Pink Lady Lemonade.” If you’re familiar with Acid Mothers Temple, you know the deal and no further introduction is needed. If this is your initial foray into the Acid Mothers cosmos, welcome aboard.

I recorded this set from our usual location in the venue combined with a board feed from Mercury FOH, Alex. The sound is excellent. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the Knitting Factory set, which we’ll be posting soon.

The Wake to a New Dawn of Another Astro Era Tour 2016 continues! Check here for the remaining Texas and California dates.
