Lil Daggers: April 11, 2010 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

[Not very good iPhone photo by acidjack]

In the Great Recession (or whatever you wish to call it), only a handful of states could claim to having taken the beating that Florida did. The Sunshine State, once a land of promise and (mostly) fulfilled retirement fantasies, was laid waste to by the crisis, its optimism shattered to its core. But, sometimes, turmoil is a boon to art. Call it coincidence, but it seems that around the time that Florida busted out, the state also started to crank out quality music. As we mentioned in our preview of this show, Lil Daggers are one of the bands that have emerged from the Sunshine State. At Glasslands on Sunday, Lil Daggers brought their garage-rock to NYC for the first time and showed why they have been hailed as the next big thing from Florida.

This show was recorded with a combination of DPA omnis and Beyer cards and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Acid Mothers Temple: April 7, 2010 Knitting Factory Brooklyn – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

April 9, 2010

This was my first time seeing Acid Mothers Temple in their fifteen-year history, so perhaps the other fans more familiar with the band knew a bit more what to expect than I did – an intoxicating sonic journey that blew minds and eardrums.  The already-legendary Japanese psych-rock band, led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto, has operated on-and-off for the last fifteen years as a collective, and only in more recent times as a tightly-knit, core band.  And their sound, believe you me, is heavy, a wall of music that crescendoes and, then, seemingly, crescendoes still further.  Most songs segue seamlessly from one another; the show is relentless and tight.  No wonder members of the crowd had been following the band across the U.S. – they are that kind of band, the type to inspire fanatics.  Count me in.

I recorded this set from the optimal spot in the venue with the DPA microphones.  The crowd was focused on the music and the recording is excellent.  I should note – as I said up top – that I am not familiar with the band’s music, and therefore I could use commenters’ help on the setlist.  There may also be some imperfect tracking, which is a combination of my inexperience with their music and the relatively seamless nature of the set.  As it is best experienced as a complete piece of music, I do not think that will detract from the listening experience.  Enjoy!

A Sunny Day in Glasgow: March 29, 2010 The Bell House – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

April 7, 2010

Heavy rains and the first night of Passover may have deterred some of the Monday night crowd at the Bell House, but those who came out witnessed the critically-acclaimed Philadelphia based dreampop sextet A Sunny Day in Glasgow deliver a stellar set of songs in support of their latest EP, Nitetime Rainbows. While their records, and especially Nitetime Rainbows, have a bit more of an electronic sheen to them, ASDIG’s live show is a more organic experience, free from some of the editing room trickery.  Experiencing them as a bit more of a “rock” band (albeit, a still-very-shoegazy one) is a different but completely enjoyable experience from how they are on record.   This includes more of a focus on the vocal harmonies of singers Annie Fredrickson and Jen Goma, which were especially beautiful on the impromptu performance of “Another Diamond Day” by Vashti Bunyan.

I recorded this set with a combination of the DPA 4021 microphones and a stereo soundboard feed, which for this particular show consisted of mostly vocals.  Therefore, what you are hearing is predominantly the mics, with the vocals boosted a bit from the board feed.  The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Wilco: April 2, 2010 Wellmont Theatre – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

April 6, 2010

[Photos for nyctaper by Kate Ehle — many more here]

The Wellmont Theatre lies in the heart of Montclair, NJ, an upscale suburb of NYC that is so pretty it could even give a hardened Manhattanite a twinge of envy.  Despite not being a terribly rock-n-roll town, Montclair welcomed Wilco and its fans with open arms, and received a sprawling three-hour rock show in return.  In the land of Springsteen, Wilco seemed determined not to be outshined by the length or enthusiasm of the Boss’ mammoth performances, and indeed, they got it right.  The show broke down into three distinct segments – a fiery electric set that kicked off with the one-two punch of “Wilco (The Song)” and “Bull Black Nova”, followed by an acoustic set, and ending with another huge electric set, the highlight of which was the band’s tribute to Alex Chilton when they played Big Star’s “Thank You, Friends,” which we have provided as an individual download below.  The almost entirely crowd-sung “Jesus, Etc.” was also a fine moment of community in which – whether you came from nicest part of Jersey, the farthest corner of Brooklyn, or anywhere else – everyone was reminded why they wanted to spend this Friday night with this band.

I recorded this set dead front and center behind the band’s sound booth with the 4-mic rig, with the hypers lower down toward the crowd and the DPA mics higher up but still well below the overhang of the balcony.   Although the venue had a boomy sound due in part to an underpowered house PA, the mix, with a little help from computer magic, is now crystal-clear and of excellent quality.  Enjoy!

Drive-By Truckers: April 1, 2010 Webster Hall – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

April 3, 2010

[Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood at the Terminal 5 show in 2008. Photo courtesy of One Louder Photo]

I have always been a little surprised by the mutual respect and admiration shown between the thoroughly Alabama-bred Drive-By Truckers and the fans of the NYC area.   Unfortunately, the years of suspicion and stereotypes between the South – particularly the deep South – and NYC aren’t totally past tense, even in an age when you can actually get a decent biscuit and sawmill gravy within the five boroughs.  But like certain other of the South’s best exports, New Yorkers seem to get the Truckers, partly because their music acknowledges and, in the best Southern tradition, celebrates many of their homeland’s contradictions and frustrations.  On April Fool’s Day the Truckers opted not to offer up any jokes or fake-outs, but drilled through a powerful set that showcased many songs from their brand-new The Big To-Do and a survey of their earlier classics like the heavy-hitters toward the end of the set, “Hell No, I Ain’t Happy,” “Lookout Mountain” and “Let There Be Rock”.  Despite Webster Hall’s “curfew” in order to start the venue’s dance party, the band played for over two hours with few breaks in between songs.  NYC may be a long way from Muscle Shoals, but tonight, everyone fell under the sway of this timeless act’s Southern charm.

I recorded this set with a four-microphone rig clamped to the balcony immediately to the right of the soundboard cage, with the two sets of mics at varied heights to capture both direct and ambient sound.   I am extremely happy with the results, and hope you are, too!  Enjoy!

The Long Winters (John Roderick solo): March 26, 2010 The Bell House – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

April 1, 2010

John Roderick is the distinctive voice of The Long Winters, as well as a good friend of Nada Surf.  Nada Surf had promised that their three-night run of NYC full-album performances would feature “special guests,” and Roderick’s appearance at The Bell House for the second of these gigs (which we also recorded) was the most welcome of all.  Although the rest of his band did not make the trip out from the Pacific Northwest, Roderick performed many of The Long Winters’ most beloved songs as well as a new number, “Not Moving to Portland.”  The acoustic setting highlighted Roderick’s unique voice and his talents as a lyricist, as well as his great sense of humor!  Roderick closed out his set with Nada Surf as his backing band on “The Commander Thinks Aloud.”

Like the Nada Surf recording, this recording was made with a combination of the DPA microphones and a stereo soundboard feed, for excellent sound quality.

Nada Surf: March 26, 2010 The Bell House – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

Nada Surf’s first single, “Popular,” was released in 1996.  It made the rounds on “alternative” radio pretty heavily, along with the hits of a number of contemporaries who are long forgotten.  Nada Surf’s trajectory could have been the same – permanent one-hit wonder status, forever relegated to “Remember the 90s” comps and theme party shout outs.  But after being dropped by their label before their second record could even be released in the U.S., Nada Surf took a different tack, recommitted to their music, and continued on.  That turned out to be a good decision, as their third and fourth records, Let Go and The Weight is a Gift were, if not commercial blockbusters, critical successes, stocked with well-crafted, timeless pop-rock instant classics like “Blonde on Blonde” and “In the Mirror.”  Rather than crumple into the rock n’ roll scrap heap, Nada Surf have aged and succeeded gracefully.

This night’s show at The Bell House was the second in a series of NYC-area concerts celebrating one of the band’s 2000s-era albums, with Let Go being played the previous night at Bowery Ballroom, and Lucky being performed in full the following night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.  This show (the only one of the three that nyctaper was able to get tickets to, unfortunately) celebrated The Weight is a Gift, the 2005 follow-up to the successful Let Go.  After playing the album straight through, the band returned to play an even longer second set that combined other classics from their repertoire like “Whose Authority” with new covers that are set to appear on the forthcoming covers album, if i had a hi-fi.  Guests included John Roderick of The Long Winters, who also gave a fantastic solo set that we hope to post in the future will post very soon.  This included a rendition of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” that, true to Nada Surf’s aesthetic, turned that band’s dark, brooding classic into a more upbeat pop number, along with covers of Kate Bush, the Go-Betweens, Dwight Twilley, and the Clash.   Today’s Nada Surf is a mature, fully realized rock band, but this night proved that they haven’t lost any of the youthful exuberance that attracted fans in the first place (and as the picture below shows, apparently neither have their fans!).

This recording combines the DPA microphones with an excellent house mix by the Bell House staff, and the sound quality is outstanding.  Enjoy!

Magik Markers: March 19, 2010 Union Pool – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

March 26, 2010
By


[Not particularly good iPhone photo by acidjack]

Since their founding in 2001, Magik Markers have slowly evolved from a more experimental act specializing in epic psych/noise jams into the band they are today.  As demonstrated on their latest record, Balf Quarry, the band have not abandoned the psychedelic rock by any means – but today their musical vision is transmitted via actual songs as well.   One constant throughout the Markers’ career has been their reputation as an excellent live band.

A Markers show has the feel of controlled chaos, going in unpredictable directions.  Some numbers seem to end as abruptly as they began; between lead singer/guitarist Elisa Ambrogio’s freeform lyrical style and the virtuosity of all of the band members, you can never be sure they haven’t invented something new on the spot.   At Union Pool the band’s reputation remained intact – they were alternately humorous, jammy, blunt and contemplative- sometimes almost within the space of a single song!

I recorded this set with a combination of a stereo soundboard feed and the DPA mics mounted to the balcony.   Due to the venue’s size, the soundboard feed in this venue consists mostly of vocals and drums, which have been balanced with the audience mics to create an excellent recording, though at times you will perceive adjustments being made by the sound engineer.  Enjoy!

You won’t confuse ArpLine with a stripped-down straight-ahead type of rock act.  The band filled the stage at Glasslands with enough pedals, instruments, cables and laptops (three by my count) to practically launch a recording studio.  These guys put a lot of care into their sound – mixing instruments from their onstage laptops in at least some cases – and the attention to detail was evident on this night.  The band was absolutely on fire as they played every song off of their recently released first record, Travel Book.  Whether you are a rock diehard or into electronic music, these guys have something to offer you, playing a polished, modern brand of synth-driven, psychedelic rock (their name doesn’t reference a classic synth for nothing) that is distinguished by strong melodies and varied musical textures.

I recorded this set with a combination of the Beyerdynamic microphones clamped to the center of the bottom rail of the balcony, with DPA omnidirectional miniature microphones “boundary mounted” to the balcony right over the crowd.   The result is a perfectly balanced mix that captures both the venue’s PA and the onstage sound.  Enjoy!

Although I had just caught them earlier in the month at Littlefield, my second Vandelles experience was no less entertaining.   Well-slotted in the coveted “second to last” position on an excellent five-act roster,  the band ripped through a similar set to the Littlefield show.  This set seemed a bit tighter than that one, and fortunately, the Vandelles avoided the fate of the act that followed them, MiniBoone, who shorted out most of the electrical equipment onstage and ended up playing an impromptu semi-acoustic freeform set.

I recorded this set way upfront with the miniature DPA microphones mounted to my hat.  The sound is excellent and there is almost no crowd chatter.  Enjoy!
