Built To Spill: September 25, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

In the lead up to this show I realized that in a few months, it will be twenty years since the first time I saw Built To Spill live. That early 1996 show at the late great Tramps was a revelation — I mean, who knew that a band of guitar wizards could come from a place like Idaho. But from that day forward I’ve followed Built To Spill and seen them live consistently ever since, close to thirty times. Indeed, they’ve been on NYCTaper fourteen times. So I think I have a pretty good idea of when the band is playing well and whether a particular show is a good one. Last Friday at Bowery Ballroom, I’m pretty sure I saw one of the best BTS shows of all of them. This was a night that started with a “wow” version of “Time Trap” and never let up. The band is currently on tour in support of their new album Untethered Moon — their first new release in six years. Perhaps its the excitement of the addition of the new songs to the setlist, but there seemed to be a renewed energy on stage, and in the crowd the energy was returned. You can hear from this recording how engaged was the Bowery faithful. We are streaming two highlights from this show (of many). At eight minutes in length, “Velvet Waltz” is one of the longest tracks on one of our favorite BTS albums (Perfect From Now On), and on this night the closing jam just went bonkers and kept the song going for twelve minutes. In the encore segment, the persistent fans who had been calling all night for “Joyride” were treated to an scorching version of one of the band’s earliest singles — it was Doug Martsch’s best solo in a night filled with them.

I recorded this set from our standard Bowery location. But this one is special. It was mixed perfectly by the band’s tour FOH Eric and we used primarily the room mics in this mix. There’s about 25% of the board feed to supplement the vocals and overall the sound quality is quite superb. Enjoy!

Built to Spill: May 11, 2015 Music Farm (Charleston, SC) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Songs

Being at the forefront of the guitar-driven indie rock scene for over 20 years, Built to Spill have cemented their reputation with a lot of hard work.  With a string of superlative albums, first-rate musicianship and songcraft, and seemingly nonstop touring, it’s very well deserved.  After a few personnel changes as of late, frontman Doug Martsch and company have just released their newest disc, the lauded ‘Untethered Moon‘, and are back on the road to support itBeing almost exactly a year since I last saw the band, I was very excited not only to see them perform again but to also catch my first concert in Charleston and at the famed Music Farm.  Known for wearing their influences on their sleeves by way of an extensive list of cover songs, the group dialed it back a bit for this outing and focused primarily on their own material, including a handful of tracks from the new album.  The exception being a 14+ minute workout of Neil Young’s “Cowgirl in the Sand”, streaming below.  It’s the surprises like this that keep reminding you how Built to Spill stays at the peak of their game.

Set up dead center and right in front of the board, we couldn’t have asked for a better location to record from.  And with the band’s soundman, Ian, at the helm with assistance from the venue’s FOH, Mike, the sound was excellent.  We hope you like what you hear as much as we did.  Enjoy!

There was a period in this site’s history during the 2009-2010 range where we collectively saw Built to Spill more than ten times in a short span (four shows in October 2009 alone). Most bands seen that often that close together would burn you out for good, but we have continued to follow Doug Martsch and his outstanding band since then. The reason Martsch feels he can continue playing New York with such frequency — even when he doesn’t have new material on offer — is that the show doesn’t just go on, its gets better every time. This performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg was easily the best BTS performance I have seen in all of the many times I have experienced this band.

Without the burden of promoting a new album, Martsch felt free to let he and the band’s whimsies roam, playing classic BTS songs like “Stab” from There’s Nothing Wrong With Love alongside newer favorites like “Planting Seeds”. We got songs that were great, short bursts; we also got a nearly ten-minute “Goin’ Against Your Mind” straight into “Carry the Zero” to close out the main set. But what set this show apart were its four cover songs. If you haven’t heard Martsch do his best J. Mascis impersonation, now you can, on this epic cover of Dinosaur Jr.‘s “Sludgefeast”. Or if classic rock is more your thing, you couldn’t go wrong with this phenomenal note-for-note rendition of Blue Öyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper”, or BTS’ take on The Byrds’ “Eight Miles High”. The night ended, as did the Brooklyn Bowl show, with the craziest cover of all — a seventeen-minute free-for-all to the tune of “Genius of Love” by Tom Tom Club, which found the audience joining the band on stage for an epic, old-style Brooklyn dance party. It was the kind of thing a band with two fewer decades’ experience might have done, a lark to put a punctuation mark on the night. But that’s the genius of Built to Spill — whether the songs are new or old, the show never stays the same.

I recorded this set along with Johnny Fried Chicken Boy from our usual spot in the balcony directly over the soundboard cage, using Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones. With some careful editing to mitigate the boomy nature of the house mix, this recording is excellent. Enjoy!

Built To Spill: November 7, 2013 Irving Plaza – Flac/MP3/Streaming

There was a time earlier in this decade when Built To Spill made regular and frequent visits to NYC — from 2008-10, we recorded them ten times. But BTS has not appeared in New York in three full years, and they were clearly missed. The crowd at Irving Plaza on Thursday night was animated and thoroughly packed into the venue. This might be the most crowded I’ve ever seen Irving, and I’ve been seeing shows there for 29 years. Built To Spill began the set in earnest with a ferocious ten-minute version of “Goin Against Your Mind”, and the energy never really let up. The band played a nice selection of material old and newer, and even included a brand new song “Living Zoo”, and the crowd was there with them throughout the lengthy set. Usually at a show this crowded, people tire of the sardine-like conditions and go to the back, but that never happened on this night. The place never thinned out, and when the encore segment began the audience was awarded for their effort. BTS has been played a series of interesting covers throughout the tour, including the Velvets “Sister Ray”. And although we curiously didn’t get the Lou Reed tribute in NYC, we did get a spot-on cover the Smiths classic “How Soon is Now”, which we’re streaming below. When the band left the stage, Doug Martsch said “see you next year, we hope”, so I expect it won’t be another three years before Built To Spill visit NYC. Meanwhile, BTS will be on tour for much of the next couple of months, dates [here].

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser Cards mounted at 12 feet from the middle of the floor. The sound quality reflects the sound in the venue that night, including a very noisy crowd. With that caveat, enjoy!

In spite of their extensive touring and the considerable number of gigs they’ve played in the NYC area in recent times, it had been a few years since my last Built to Spill concert and the anticipation for this one was awfully high.  Suffice to say, I wasn’t disappointed; the show that the band put on, along with the songs they chose to play, made it worth the wait.  Beginning with the vibrantly melodic “Traces”, the group pulled tracks from most of their albums, threw in a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Ripple” and ended with a one-two punch of the often-requested (at least on this night) crowd pleaser “Car” and “Virginia Reel Around the Fountain” from Doug Martsch’s side project, the Halo Benders.  All in all, a wonderful show to reacquaint me with the band after my hiatus.

We taped this show from the dead-center spot on the balcony, right above the soundboard.  Aside from the house mix being a touch bass-heavy in our location, the resultant recording is indicative of the very good to excellent audio that’s typical of this venue and sounds great.  Hope you like what you hear as much as we did.  Enjoy!

After the 78-minute set of Built To Spill that we saw this July at Irving Plaza, we were worried that the band had decided people were over long sets of theirs.  Thankfully, this Wednesday’s show at the Highline Ballroom was back to their usual set-length standards.  Although BTS has toured near-incessantly in New York in the past two years (at least 8 shows covered by this site, plus a few that I am sure I am missing), each show offers new surprises and treats.   Tonight, a cover of Grateful Dead’s “Ripple” was a particular highlight, along with an encore that included “Twin Falls” segueing directly into an extended version of “Some” from their classic album The Normal Years.  The sprawling “Randy Described Eternity,” from Perfect From Now, was another classic that I had not seen recently.  There are not many bands that can keep us coming back for this many shows in such a relatively short span of time, but Doug Martsch’s dynamic guitar work and continued rhythmic exploration still gets us every time.

I recorded this set from the center of the floor with a combination of Schoeps hypercardiod microphones and DPA cardiods mounted one above the other.  The four-mic mix perfectly captures the quality house mix from the Highline staff.  Enjoy!

A show that for some odd reason I didn’t even necessarily intend to see, until a 2 a.m. email to brooklynvegan got me on the boat, ended up being one of my favorite shows of the year and an incredibly appropriate end to the Summer. Built To Spill on the Rocks Off Concert Cruise — two hours of a peak performance in perfect weather and a party atmosphere that managed to get raucous without getting stupid. Doug Martsch is always a genial fellow, but on this night he honored requests, chatted and joked with the fans, and played DJ before and after the set. He may have had as good a time as any of us. Its hard to argue with a setlist that drew five songs from the first two albums, including the rarely played duo of “Twin Falls” and “Some”. There isn’t much more we can ask from this band this year, as they’ve played two excellent shows this year after delivering four great nights last October. But they will be giving more. Built To Spill will play the Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 5 and Highline Ballroom on October 6.

This set was recorded with the Neumann microphones pointed at the stacks from about twenty feet, and mixed with feed from the soundboard. The sound quality is far better than I expected recording music in a boat, since the performance area was mostly indoors and the sound mix in the room was superb. Enjoy!

Built To Spill: July 28, 2010 Irving Plaza – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

August 1, 2010
By


[screen cap from this video]

Although known for their epic sets, including the several we recorded last yearBuilt to Spill’s set at Irving Plaza(thankfully renamed back from its brief, lame, “Fillmore East’ incarnation) was relatively short (clocking in around 80 minutes) and tighter than we expected.  That said, the band tore it up for every second that they were onstage, and frontman Doug Martsch’s vocals were dialed-in from moment one.   Playing very little of their recent There is No Enemy (though the leadoff of “Oh Yeah” was perfect), the band decided to play through the catalog, including an excellent version of their early classic, “Car” with the crowd fully behind it.  The band also played a highlight from their Live album, the Halo Benders cover “Virginia Reel Around the Fountain.”  The fact that a band’s 80-minute show is considered “short” is a testament to how much they normally give their fans.  In the end, not every show – even one with a serious player like Martsch – needs to serve up non-stop jams to be a winner.

We recorded this set from the center of the floor with the Schoeps and Neumann hypercardiod microphones parallel to each other on an 8-foot mic stand.  With some EQ tweaks to reduce some of the room characteristics, the sound is excellent.  Enjoy!

The fourth and final night of the Built to Spill NYC “tour” was a night to jam. BTS seemed relaxed and poised to have some loose fun. Doug spoke often to the crowd and honored a couple of requests — “You Were Right” and “Cars” were audience choices. The most compelling parts of the evening though were the two extended jam segments. “Hindsight” from the new album There Is No Enemy was stretched out with a new instrumental segment, and the show-closing eleven minute “Conventional Wisdom” was perhaps the most intense song performed by the band all week.

We recorded this show from the same location as the previous night. While the vocals were still too low in the mix, the problem is not nearly as pronounced as the recording of the night before. With that caveat, enjoy!

The four-show Built to Spill NYC tour moved to Brooklyn on Wednesday and brought along another varied setlist. After Monday’s hit-heavy show and Tuesday’s time trip to the 90’s, Wednesday in Brooklyn was guitar night. As Doug’s lead instrument was dominant in the house mix, the audience could literally ride every trip up and down the fretboard — and there were many. From the classic opener “Three Years Ago Today”, the raging “In Your Mind”, and to the set closer “Carry The Zero”, Doug inventive and heady solos were front and center. While we would have preferred the lengthy jammed out version of “Randy” in the encore slot — this version was only four minutes — the band chose to use the show-closing nine-minute “Goin’ Against Your Mind” to stretch out.

I recorded this set from the front center rail of the balcony with the four microphone rig. The sound quality of the instruments is quite spectacular. However, the vocals are again buried in the mix — which given the guitar-oriented nature of this band and this show in particular is probably not a major impediment to enjoyment!

Last night (Oct 15) was also recorded and will be posted very soon.
