I’ve listened to Mind Over Mirrors’ latest double-LP, Bellowing Sun, a whole bunch since its early-April release—but it didn’t occur to me until halfway through this performance at Brooklyn Bazaar how much of a Cluster vibe it has going. The other thing that struck me was how dexterous each of the players was, taking on multiple instruments, often at the same time. The band is the same as last time we saw them, which is Jamie Fennelly joined by Janet Beveridge Bean, Jim Becker, Jon Mueller (I guess your first name needs to start with J to join the Mirrors—my loss there). Bellowing Sun is a little unusual in the Mirrors’ catalog as its the result of a commission from Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The piece as it was performed in Chicago this past April was accompanied by a multimedia sculpture and light installation which, if the pictures are any indication, was pretty damn cool. Jamie says there is a possibility of bringing the entire experience on the road. But for now, we got to hear the entire Bellowing Sun played live at Brooklyn Bazaar last week. I can’t even describe how amazing it is to see four musicians pull off this complex, layered performance, so I won’t: the music speaks for itself.

Thanks to the Brooklyn Bazaar staff for their hospitality. The new venue sounds great and we hope to be back soon. Enjoy!
