Hurray For The Riff Raff: June 7, 2015 Mountain Jam – Flac’MP3/Streaming

We’ve chronicled the rise of Hurray For The Riff Raff quite often over the last few years — so often that their appearance at Mountain Jam isn’t even the first festival appearance we’ve captured. Last year at the XPontential Fest, HFTRR appeared on the biggest stage we had seen them play yet and slayed the huge crowd. The experience at the Jam this year was quite similar, except that the band was placed higher in the bill right before the headliner Alabama Shakes (recording here). Though it was a tough spot, as the crowd seemed to be gravitating to the main stage, HFTRR played a tight hour-long set at the west stage. Opening with a “mountain” song in tribute to the Fest, the band worked through a familiar set of songs with six songs from last year’s career-changing success Small Town Heroes, a couple of older songs, and one brand new one that we first heard at the Bowery back in April.

Hurray For The Riff Raff performed at Bonnaroo this weekend, and will continue to play at several Festivals and other selected dates throughout the Summer.

I recorded this set with Neumann large diaphragm cardiods from our section up on the hill. There was some wind during this set, but the overall quality is quite good. Enjoy!

Hurray For The Riff Raff: April 24, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

We have followed the career trajectory of Hurray For The Riff from their very beginnings playing small clubs, basements and rooftops in NYC. We were so pleased to still be invited to join the party when the band celebrated their “Bowery Moment” last Friday night — a healthy sell-out of the Bowery Ballroom with friends and family in attendance. Its definitely a “we made it” night for bands and particularly sweet for HFTRR who’ve been working hard at their craft for a decade. The recent years have been kind them as we outlined when we caught them at the XPonential Festival last Summer, but that first Bowery night is always a special one. For the show the band worked through a setlist that featured primarily tracks from the last two albums Look Out Mama and Small Town Heroes but also a nifty Lucinda Williams cover (from their covers album) and one brand new song “Living in the City”, that Bronx-born Alynda Lee Segarra dedicated to NYC. Hurray For The Riff Raff is currently on an extensive US tour that is going through the South and Midwest before we’ll catch up with them again at Mountain Jam in June.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cardioids mounted in our usual Bowery spot and mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

The best way for an artist to maintain perspective in the lofty heights of current success is to remember from whence they came. Hurray For The Riff Raff have had a tremendously successful and well-deserved couple of years. Its a growth in stature that we’ve been both fortunate to experience first hand and for which we’ve unabashedly rooted. At last week’s XPonential Fest, Hurray For The Riff Raff performed for the largest crowd before which we’ve ever seen them play. At the point when their set began, despite the wind and pouring rain, the amphitheatre of the River Stage at Camden Waterfront was packed and the pit was full with several thousand people. And while the band’s set did rely heavily on their superb new album Small Town Heroes, it was the selection of what Alynda described as one of the first songs she ever wrote, and one she played during her days busking in New Orleans, that showed a perspective and humility about her current success. We’re streaming “Here It Comes”, which featured Alynda on banjo but with the full band treatment fits in quite nicely with the band’s current material. Hurray For The Riff Raff will continue their active touring throughout the Fall, including stops at multiple festivals. And speaking of playing before thousands, their next show in NYC will be at Terminal 5.

I recorded this set with the new Schoeps CCM4U cardioids from directly in front of the soundboard and mixed it with the feed that was also broadcast live on WXPN. The use of the open air mics during this rainy set does contain some minor wind noise, but overall the sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

Hurray For The Riff Raff: April 2, 2014 Knitting Factory – Flac/MP3/Streaming

April 7, 2014
By

HFTRR LC

In February, Hurray For The Riff Raff released Small Town Heroes, their first album for ATO Records. As we’ve followed the band closely for several years, the last five recordings of HFTRR on this site have also followed the growth and development of these songs over time. The album is a brilliant dose of Americana but the songcraft is truly what shines in the collection of inspired tracks. There’s the Carter Family influenced old country of “Blue Ridge Mountain”, country-rock in “End Of The Line”, New Orleans blues of “St Roch Blues”, the John Prine-ish title track, and the reverse/revenge murder ballad “The Body Electric” — all of which are authentic interpretations of the best of American music. HFTRR recently had a major personnel change when Sam Doores returned to his own excellent band The Deslondes. Our previous HFTRR experience featured Deslondes as the opening band, and Sam guested on several tracks. This past week at Knitting Factory was our first HFTRR show where Alynda Lee was the sole front-person and the growth in both her stage maturity and ease in the spotlight continue to impress. But she’s still a kid at heart and it brought smiles when she told of her shyness at meeting one of her idols Lucinda Williams at SXSW this year. I couldn’t help but think that ten years or so from now young performers will approach their idol Alynda Lee with the same timidity. We’re streaming the Lucinda cover played this night. Hurray For The Riff Raff are currently on tour in selected US cities throughout April before they head to Europe for a handful of shows in May.

I recorded this set in our usual manner in this venue — Sennheiser cards at the soundboard mixed with a feed from talented house FOH Rob. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

[still from this video]

Its been a really exciting couple of years for Hurray For The Riff Raff, and we’ve been lucky to follow along with their progress. From their two superb shows at Mercury in 2012, through a series of television appearances and big tour support slots, the band’s profile continues to grow. We were happy to learn recently that HFTRR signed to ATO Records, and their excellent batch of new songs will see a release in February of 2014 as a new album Small Town Heroes. At the tail end of a full US tour with Spirit Family Reunion, HFTRR added a semi-secret early show at Mercury Lounge last Monday. The set featured a healthy dose of the new album, as had their show we captured at the Knitting Factory in August. We are streaming “Little Black Star” from their superb 2012 release Look Out Mama, a performance that featured multiple guests including their tour mates. Hurray For The Riff Raff will return to NYC on April 3 for a show at Lincoln Center as part of their American Songbook series.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser set up in front of the soundboard booth and mixed with a excellent board feed from Mercury’s head sound engineer Kevin. The quality is superb. Enjoy!

Hurray For The Riff Raff: August 1, 2013 Knitting Factory – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Hurray For The Riff Raff is one of those rare bands that seem to be even better every new time you see them. We were amazed at their growth when we saw them twice last summer. Those two shows are on constant play in my listening rotation and I expect to add last Thursday’s show at Knitting Factory to the mix. Fresh off what Alynda Lee called their “magical tour”, which included an appearance at the Newport Folk Festival and a leg of the tour opening for the Alabama Shakes in large venues, the Knit show was a band at its peak having fun and playing a varied setlist. We’ve spoken in previous posts about the brilliant 2012 release Look Out Mama, definitely a sleeper for those disconnected with today’s Americana music but a unanimous best-of for those who were paying attention. Hurray For The Riff are currently working on a new album which is expected in the Fall and the Knit show also saw the performance of what we believe were nine new songs that will eventually see release on that new record. Of those new songs, we’d heard a few at prior shows, including “Small Town Heroes”. But this particular version of Small Town Heroes was so intense and awe inspiring that we have to stream it below.

Hurray For The Riff Raff will perform a free show in Lincoln Center at Hearst Plaza on Saturday August 10 at 1:30 pm. HFTRR will return for a full show in the Fall, venue and date to be announced by the band later today (along with full tour news).

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards on a stand at the front corner of the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed provided by the Knit’s FOH Rob. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Hurray For The Riff Raff: October 18, 2012 NYCTaper CMJ Day Show, Cake Shop – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

As Hurricane Sandy’s damage continues to be assessed here on the East Coast, it seems grimly appropriate to highlight the CMJ performance of an outstanding New Orleans-based band that represents that city’s history as well as its brightening future. Hurray For the Riff Raff have been favorites of this site for a while now, and we did everything we could – including picking them up from the airport – to make it possible for them to play our unofficial CMJ day show at Cake Shop, just hours after they got off a plane from Germany. If this minimalist version of the band – lead singer and guitarist Alynda Lee Segarra and guitarist Sam Doores, plus special guest Matt Davidson of Spirit Family Reunion on fiddle – was worn out from traveling, they didn’t show it during this acoustic set. In fact, Alynda, Sam and Matt looked to be having a hell of a lot of fun as they played stripped-down versions of new songs, older songs, and a choice cover of the Ronettes classic, “Be My Baby”. After seeing a fantastic performance from the band back in August, it was a special treat to be able to see them again so soon. While the band has returned to New Orleans to enjoy some much-needed time to de-compress, we’ll be happy to welcome them back as soon as they are ready.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed provided by the day’s engineer Justin, plus Schoeps MK5 microphones mounted at the front of the stage. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

I’m thinking a lot about New Orleans right now. Hurricane Isaac has landed just west of the City on literally the 7th anniversary of Katrina. As New Orleans braces for the worst and all of us hope that the pumps and levees hold in their first major test, its comforting to listen to one of the best young bands the city has to offer. Hurray For The Riff Raff are surging on the momentum of their new album (Look Out Mama), a string of superb shows and some pretty heady media attention. On Sunday, the band returned to Mercury Lounge as the headliner and very impressively packed the joint on a Sunday night late show in late August. While they’ve always impressed us, going all the way back to 2008, its fair to say that HFTRR has never been better. Alynda is singing with strength and confidence and the musicians are incredibly tight. The set was heavy on Mama material but also featured four new songs, a couple of older numbers, and some really neat covers. We are streaming the Jimmie Dale Gilmore (via Flatlanders) classic “Dallas” which not only cemented the band’s alt-country bona fides but also featured vocals with Alynda showing great range and passion. With our thoughts and hopes for the safety of New Orleans on this night, we’re also streaming Hurray For The Riff Raff’s tribute to the city, “St. Roch Blues”. HFTRR will return to do more shows in Europe this Fall before returning to NYC for a special show in mid-October. More details to follow on the NYC date!

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards positioned in front of the soundboard and mixed with an excellent board feed. The large crowd on this night was extremely into the band and there’s almost no chatter that isn’t part of the show. We mixed the mics and the board at 50/50 leading to a really nice room feel to an otherwise outstanding recording. Enjoy!

Its been a couple of years since we last saw New Orleans’ Hurray For The Riff Raff. While band leader Alynda Lee was born in the raised in the Bronx, over the last three years the band has not come north enough for us to get a chance to see them. In the interim, they released a couple of albums and made an appearance on HBO’s award winning show Tremé. But nearly three years to the day since HFTRR played a show we produced at Monster Island, they triumphantly returned to NYC in support of the band’s brilliant new album Look Out Mama. The show at Mercury Lounge on Friday night was tight, energetic and driven. Hurray For The Riff Raff is a more mature and confident band and the music has evolved — Alynda’s americana’s influences have been fleshed out and we can now hear everything from dixieland to surf rock. At Mercury, the band worked through a setlist that included some of the new album (we’re streaming “What’s Wrong With Me”), but also three new or unreleased songs, and a superb cover of “Time Is On My Side”, that veered more towards the Irma Thomas version and less to the Stones. “Time” also featured Alynda’s vocals chops and the band’s ability to let loose and have some rip roaring fun. Hurray For The Riff Raff have finished their current tour, but will return to the road for a tour of the UK later this Summer.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted on a stand at the front of the soundboard and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
