Other than the Feelies, Mission is Burma is likely the only still-active band to have played Maxwell’s in the 1970s. The club closed for good last night, but in its final week we were treated to a series of outstanding concerts, not the least of which was the double shot of MOB for early and late shows on Sunday. Acidjack covered the early show, and I was there for the late. If on this night the band’s setlist was more geared towards older material than their recent shows (January at Bowery for instance), it was a fitting acknowledgement to a club that was, according to Clint Conley, a “safe place for weirdos” in the old days. Thirty-five years and thousands of shows later, on this night it was a place for memories and tributes, but more importantly still-vibrant music played by a band that virtually invented American post-punk.

I recorded this set with the Neumann large diaphragm cardioids mounted at the front of the soundboard booth and the quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Miracle of 86: June 14, 2013 Maxwells – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Kevin Devine is such a nice guy that its hard for me to believe that he was once in a band that broke up. The Miracle of 86 was a popular Staten Island based power pop quartet who toured and recorded from 1998 to 2003, before Kevin launched his solo career. Following the tragic events of the superstorm and the massive damage to their home borough, the band reunited on Staten Island for a benefit concert in January. The experience was so positive that Miracle of 86 decided to keep it going — with two shows in June. We attended the Maxwells date a couple of weeks back, and it was a show that felt very much like a bunch of old friends getting together to play some songs. The stage banter was friendly and funny and the performance of the old material was both inspired and surprisingly tight. We’re streaming “Sunday School”, which was so well played that it could be released tomorrow. Miracle of 86 could very well play more reunion shows, but for now Kevin will be concentrating, after his hugely successful Kickstarter (for two albums!) on his solo career. Expect a show in NYC in late summer / early fall.

I recorded this show in our usual manner in this venue and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Mountain Goats: June 5, 2013 Maxwells – Flac/MP3/Streaming

The current Mountain Goats tour is a bit of a throwback of sorts. After tours as a trio with drummer Jon Wurster and tours where the band added new players such as horns, a second guitarist, and various special guests, this month the Mountain Goats is a John Darnielle and Peter Hughes duo. The stripped down stage show gives the band a chance to take some chances. Last week at Maxwell’s, this included some older and rare numbers, including the twelve year old never-heard-before track from the Alpha series, “Alpha Chum Gatherer” (streaming below), and some out of the blue covers (“Ripple” streaming below). This tour is also playing to much smaller rooms than Mountain Goats tend to play these days, and the chance to experience the band in an intimate setting like Maxwell’s was a treat. This tour continues through the month of June in the Midwest and South.

I recorded this set in our usual manner at this venue. The band’s outstanding FOH Brandon Eggleston is responsible for the superb mix of this particular show and the prime quality of this recording is a tribute to his talents. Enjoy!

Lee Ranaldo: December 16, 2011 Glasslands + December 22, 2011 Maxwells – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

April 3, 2012

2011 was an interesting and eventful year for Lee Ranaldo. As the 30th anniversary of Sonic Youth approached, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon split as a couple, and huge questions remained as to the continued existence of NYC’s foremost alternative rock band. Entirely coincidentally, Lee had also begun to work on a new set of songs that would ultimately comprise Between The Times & The Tides, released on March 20, 2012 on Matador Records. Other than another nonsensical hatchet job from the shark-jumpers over at Pitchfork, the album has received universal acclaim for being a superb set of well-executed songs — a “departure” from Lee’s previous experimental solo material. Back in December, the Lee Ranaldo band performed a number of local gigs, including a show at the Bell House, a headlining gig at Glasslands, and a surprise opening slot at Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah shows at Maxwell’s. We were fortunate to capture two of these December events. The Glasslands show is a complete set including 9 of the 10 songs that appear on Between The Times, one cover and one of Lee’s Sonic Youth songs. The band includes SY’s drummer Steve Shelley, downtown guitar virtuoso Alan Licht and bassist Irwin Menken and the set was both well performed and well received by a packed crowd. Jesse Jarnow wrote an excellent piece for the Voice on the Glasslands gig. The unexpected appearance at Maxwell’s was a special treat — albeit a shorter opening set. Later that night, Lee and Steve would make an incendiary appearance during the YLT set (featured here), but the opening set was a heretofore unreported pleasure. We are streaming two songs from the Glasslands gig and one from Maxwell’s. Lee will be touring for the next couple of months, including dates opening for M Ward and a trip to Europe (dates here).

Each of these sets was recorded by mixing a soundboard feed with high end room microphones. For Glasslands, I utilized the DPA 4021s for warmth, and in Maxwell’s I used the Neumanns for clarity. The sound quality in each recording is different but each is superb. Enjoy!

Cap’n Jazz: September 23, 2017 Brooklyn Steel

September 26, 2017

Cap’n Jazz have reunited once again in 2017, having last done so in 2010 (both of which shows we covered ). If you’re not aware of the band, they’re more or less the godfathers of the so-called “emo” genre, spawning not only a wave of spinoff bands, but many imitators. With only one record to their name, the easiest point of entry is the Analphabetapolothogy compilation, first released in 1998. This show at Brooklyn Steel, billed as the band’s last U.S. reunion show (for now) was a freewheeling, crazy-making night of almost compulsive stage diving, silly stage banter, and rapid-fire delivery of the band’s favorites (plus that A-ha cover there near the end). If you had said to me prior to this night that Cap’n Jazz are more popular than ever, I’m not sure I’d have believed you, but the full floor at this massive venue (compared to sub-1000 capacity Brooklyn Bowl and sub-500 capacity Maxwell’s seven years ago) more than made the point. This was a show that put enthusiasm and energy first; if the band’s all-out delivery and Tim Kinsella’s shirtless stage diving didn’t necessarily mean he hit every lyric or the band hit every note, it couldn’t have mattered less. If later iterations of this style were criticized for being overly self-serious, they didn’t learn that from the brothers Kinsella and the current Cap’n Jazz crew (Victor Villarreal, Sam Zurick and Nate Kinsella), who put together a stage show that was really a show, the kind of experience fans want on a Saturday night. As Kinsella fumbled through a semi-serious cover of A-ha’s “Take On Me,” followed by the relentless closer “Ohh, How I Love You,” it felt like the right kind of sendoff before this pathbreaking band heads to Europe. This may have been the “last U.S. show” of this reunion, but no doubt we haven’t seen the last of these musicians, in one format or another.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41V supercardiod microphones at the soundboard, adding a pair of Audio Technica 853 shotgun microphones to add in a bit more direct sound. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

The Thermals @ Market Hotel
[photos by Will Oliver from We All Want Someone blog]

“This is the best Brooklyn show we’ve ever had, for sure”. Hutch Harris made his love of this night clear before the band’s last song, the third of three encores “Pillar Of Salt”. In a way it wasn’t hard to predict that The Thermals at the Market Hotel would be a show for the ages — the two institutions have recently returned from a hiatus and are now better than ever. There are also historical parallels between the two — ToddP used to book earlier versions of the band in Portland in the last decade.

This was a show for the now, as The Thermals’ first new album in three years, We Disappear was released in the end of March and the band is on tour to support its release. But there was also an acknowledgment of history as the band is also celebrating the 10th anniversary of perhaps their most successful album, 2006’s The Body, the Blood, the Machine. As a result, the setlist was a curious alternating selection of songs from each album in sequence with a few other classics sprinkled in between. The show maintained a consistent energy level and the very sold-out crowd was with the band throughout — physically and support-wise. This was one of the most animated Market crowds thus far and the band acknowledged the crowd in tribute.

The Thermals tour continues across the US over the next 3 weeks, dates here.

I recorded this set with the installed Audio Technics cards mixed with an excellent board feed mixed by the band’s superb touring FOH. The results are raw but right. Enjoy!

We’ve followed Holly Miranda for more than the last half decade, and she’s never let us down. Whether it was at the legendary Maxwells, headlining gig at Bowery, a private show at a wine bar, a night at Glasslands, or a show among friends at Zebulon, Holly Miranda has consistently delivered outstanding performances. Her latest record is a self-titled album that was recorded a couple of years ago after Holly moved to LA and parted ways with XL Recordings. As we noted in 2013, the new album and the artist would find a new home quickly and sure enough Dangerbird Records did just that. Last month at Bowery Ballroom, Holly brought together some old friends (including friend of the site Tim Mislock) and played a too brief support set which included much of the new album, a couple of older tracks and one sublime cover. As always, ultimately the set left us satisfied but wanting more. So, tomorrow night Holly Miranda will join forces with the excellent Hypnocraft and play a show at Manhattan Inn. Don’t miss it.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted in our usual location in this venue. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

List of All Available NYCTaper Recordings – 2011 Posts

December 26, 2015
By

taper-larger-e1414026230872

This is a rejuvenation of the lists we used to do in the early days of the site. I’m trying to get every year up in this category, so this is a look back four years at 2011. The following year (2012) will be available soon, and 2015 will go up in January. That will complete a full listing of the entire NYCTaper archives and make available every recording in our history only two clicks away. Again, don’t take this as an invitation to download massive quantities of recordings. If I find someone downloading 10 or 20 shows at once, I’ll block your IP address.

All 2007 Recordings Listed [HERE]
Part 1 of 2008 Recordings (January through June 13) Listed [HERE]
Part 2 of 2008 Recordings (June 13 through July 31) Listed [HERE]

Lee Ranaldo: December 16, 2015 Market Hotel

He spent more than half his life in one band, but if anything is evident from Lee Ranaldo’s career after Sonic Youth is that’s he perhaps the most versatile artist performing in NYC these days. We were there when Lee launched his band in support of his first proper solo album. The band that eventually became The Dust have played consistently over the last four years and are responsible for three albums since 2012. Over that period, Lee has also performed solo acoustic sets, acoustic duos, and as we experienced at Trans Pecos last month, as an acoustic trio. But there has always been more than guitar. Lee’s earlier works have also included spoken word, poetry and art installations often in conjunction with Lee’s wife the renowned artist Leah Singer.

The show that Lee Ranaldo performed as the opening set at the grand re-opening of the Market Hotel was in many ways a synthesis of his many artistic endeavors. It was a duo with the percussionist Tim Barnes with Lee nominally on “guitar”, but the piece was more of a stretching of the boundaries of how to “play” a guitar. The set began with Lee’s guitar hanging by a rope from the ceiling and continued with Lee’s use of the instrument in previously unimagined ways. He used the venue as part of the piece as the stage floor, the ceiling pipes and the front pillar (@marketpillar) became means by which the guitar was played. As Barnes accompanied Ranaldo with flourishes of percussion, often subtle but at other times manic, Lee maintained a cacophonous symphony of noise that reverberated around the packed and buzzing venue. It was a glorious inauguration for the Market Hotel and christened the venue with the type of imaginative and inventive programming that will surely follow as the calendar turns to 2016.

Lee will be performing solo again at the City Winery for Joseph Arthur’s 6th Annual New Year’s Day Celebration, before heading to Europe for solo dates in late January and early February.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cardioids mounted on the second Pillar and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is quite outstanding. Enjoy!
