If you see Beech Creeps creeping your way, don’t be alarmed. Despite the name, they share little in common with the other beach-themed bands out there. No, Beech Creeps are more akin to the Stooges’ seedy glam-rock and the Scientists’ swampy proto-grunge than any chillwave analog synth project. Veterans of some highly-regarded Brooklyn noise acts, these guys travel under the assumed identities of PP Coolata, formerly of Ex Models and Knyfe Hyts; Yuka Mofongo, formerly of Pterodactyl; and Ron Llave, formerly of People Get Ready and Yeasayer. Their debut self-titled record came out just last month on Monofonus Press, but they’ve been playing out consistently around Brooklyn since 2013. Their Union Pool set brings the heaviness with an air of confidence that belies the relatively short period the band has been together. Six out of the seven tracks off their record are represented here but it took only a couple to convert the packed crowd into true believers. If the eerie “Everybody Loves the Beach” giving way to the full-on guitar crunch of “Teenage Boogie” doesn’t do it, you’ll no doubt join the ranks of the converted after hearing standouts “Son of Sud” and “Arm of the T Rex,” both of which spotlight the full range of the ’Creeps. You may feel a little dirty afterwards—just rinse off the sand and you’ll be fine.

I recorded this set with the mics clamped to the balcony, along with a board feed from Union Pool FOH Leah. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Beech Creeps will be playing a free show on April 24 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with the legendary Moss Icon. Be sure not to miss it!

Tall Firs: March 15, 2015 Trans-Pecos – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

April 7, 2015
By

Tall Firs

The last time we had a Tall Firs set here on NYCTaper was way back in May of 2008. At the time, the band were playing songs off their first self-titled record and its followup Too Old to Die Young. As an electric trio, Dave Mies and Aaron Mullan were augmented by drummer Ryan Sawyer. Nearly seven years later, we caught up with Tall Firs again, this time with Mies and Mullan performing acoustically as a duo. In the intervening years, the band released their third record, Out of It and Into It, and could often be found performing at the latest iteration of the All Tomorrow’s Parties music festival.

For their afternoon matinee set at Trans-Pecos, the band’s quieter side is on display, setting the tone with a cover of Vic Chesnutt’s “Bakersfield,” from his first album Little. It’s no simple feat to do Chesnutt’s vocals justice, but Mies pulls it off with astounding grace, managing to sound like himself while still channelling Chesnutt’s emotive delivery. Tall Firs originals “Crooked Smiles” and “Suffer So Long” are off their most recent record, Out of It and Into It, while “So Messed Up”—which I always think of as the quintessential Firs track—is off Too Old to Die Young. “Ghost Light” and “Winter Wind” appear to be new songs, so perhaps we can expect some more new material on the way soon—and we certainly won’t wait another seven years to catch Tall Firs.

I recorded this set from the stage lip in the same manner as the Spectre Folk set from the same day, though this recording relies more heavily on the board feed. Despite some ambient noise from a few of the younger Tall Firs fans in attendance, the sound is quite enjoyable!

Tall Firs will be back at Trans-Pecos on April 25 for the intimate concert series, Heartworn Subways, along with Sue Garner, Lee Ranaldo, and Alan Licht. Advance tickets are still available.

Tigue: March 11, 2015 Secret Project Robot – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

March 31, 2015
By

Tigue

Tigue is the Brooklyn-based percussion trio composed of Ohio transplants Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody. While the whole trio has participated in Kid Millions’ Man Forever project, each member also has some impressive extracurricular affiliations that include—among many others—Evans and Moody with Ensemble Signal, and Garapic with So Percussion and David Byrne. Tigue have recently completed their first LP, Peaks, which was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign. That record is still forthcoming, but with Kid Millions producing and guest spots from Ira Kaplan and James McNew of Yo La Tengo, the impending release of Peaks is highly anticipated.

Opening for the duo of Kid Millions and Chris Brokaw at Secret Project Robot, Tigue gave us a preview of what to expect to hear on Peaks. For those new to Tigue, like I was, the songs are perhaps surprisingly pop-oriented—certainly not the classical or esoteric sounds that hearing the phrase “percussion ensemble” might conjure. Instead, it’s something like percussive drone-pop, highly accessible and engaging. Their set is performed entirely as a single piece with subtle divisions between the songs, best understood as part of a highly evolved whole rather than by its individual elements. And surely, you could say the same thing about the performers who are clearly highly tuned to each other’s frequencies. I can only expect and hope that once I hear the album proper, I’ll be let in on the full scope of Tigue’s craft. After the dramatic transition between “I Don’t Think You’re Listening” and closer “Ripped,” you’ll no doubt hear the yelp of a passionate audience member finally unable to contain his enthusiasm. In response to that guy: I couldn’t agree more.

I recorded this set with the AKGs set up approximately in the center of the room and pointed at the stacks. The sound and performance are both excellent. Enjoy!

Spectre Folk: March 15, 2015 Trans-Pecos – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

March 19, 2015

spectrefolk2015-03-15transpecos

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Pete Nolan’s Spectre Folk. But with a new 7” out on New Images last year and Magik Markers on hiatus while Elisa Ambrogio tours her solo LP, now is the perfect moment for Nolan to reactivate his project. This past Sunday, Spectre Folk emerged for a late afternoon matinee at Trans-Pecos in an extended full-band lineup augmenting Nolan with Peter Meehan on guitar, Aaron Mullan on bass, and Steve Shelley and James Canty doubling up on drums. Like most Spectre Folk shows I’ve seen, this one is held together with duct tape, threatening to come untethered at any moment. But it never does, and the looseness of the approach is only endearing as the band relies on the chemistry between the players, feeling their way through a song rather than adhering to rote structure.

The band opens with “Mothership,” off their recent 7”, that song extending over both sides of the 7” and totaling around twelve minutes in its recorded form. Here it’s a bit leaner but retains the jammy nature of the original. “Blowing Tornadoes,” “Coke,” and “Please Don’t” appear to be new songs, while Spectre Folk staples “Sat Around,” “The Blackest Medicine,” and “Keep Your Teeth Clean” are off Compass, Blanket, Lantern, Mojo and the 2011 Woodsist EP, The Blackest Medicine, Part II. Spectre Folk shows are always a welcome event, but seeing these tracks fleshed out by the full band is an added bonus and I hope the appearance of new material means we’ll be seeing more of this lineup soon.

While there are currently no further scheduled Spectre Folk dates, you can catch Magik Markers at Cafe Nine in New Haven on April 30th.

I recorded this set with the mics set up at the stage in a 90 degree spread plus a soundboard feed from Trans-Pecos FOH Max. The left mic captures Nolan’s guitar and Canty’s drums while the right mic captures Meehan’s guitar and Mullan’s bass, with Shelley’s drums in the center. In post-production I cross-faded the guitars slightly to sound more central, while retaining the overall stereo sound of the recording. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band: February 5, 2015 Union Pool

March 11, 2015
By

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

It’s hard to believe that Chris Forsyth’s second outing with the Solar Motel Band, Intensity Ghost, is merely four months old. So even as the album’s songs hardly feel worn-in, it’s exciting that the band has already begun airing new material live. “High Castle Rock” is one such new song, but also one we’ve heard before. The band has been playing it live since even prior to the release of Intensity Ghost and the long gestation period has proven fruitful. Charting its progress over the last few months, each performance burns a bit hotter than the last. This version of the song from last month at Union Pool is an unforgiving, relentless jam. Playing for a packed crowd convinced to brave the cold by a New Yorker writeup, the band airs a second new song, “The Rarity of Experience, Parts 1–2.” That one, along with their standout cover of Richard and Linda Thompson’s “The Calvary Cross,” illustrates Forsyth’s increasing comfort with vocals. From Intensity Ghost the band plays the title track, the album’s standout jammer “The Ballad of Freer Hollow,” and closer “I Ain’t Waiting.”

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Horse Lords and Mind Over Mirrors sets from the same night: with the AKGs clamped to the balcony combined with a board feed from Union Pool FOH Leah. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Oneida: February 27, 2015 The Bowery Ballroom – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

March 5, 2015

Oneida
[Photo courtesy of Andrew Day Studio]

When Heraclitus philosophized that (to paraphrase Plato’s account) you can never step into the same river twice, I’m absolutely convinced he was referring to the Oneida song “The River.” (That song notably also alludes to Heraclitus’ metaphor.) No matter how many times I see Oneida—and I’m assuredly approaching Deadhead-like devotion—I greet every new show announcement with overwhelming enthusiasm because I know I’m going to see a different Oneida than I saw last, or the time before, or the time before that, and so on all the way back to a bitter-cold, late-night set at Market Hotel over five years ago. Whether it’s new songs, covers, or old favorites, Oneida never play the same song twice. The proof is right here in NYCTaper’s immense archive.

Playing at The Bowery Ballroom, a more polished venue than they’ve played recently here in NYC, Oneida offer up another unique, invigorated set. They open with “Cedars” and instead of segueing into “Economy Travel” as they’ve done lately, they play a different new song, title so far unknown, that debuted last October. That’s followed by a twenty-minute jam, ostensibly a cover but I suspect not entirely a literal one. Their staggering version of This Heat’s “S.P.Q.R.” makes another welcome appearance and then the set concludes with what may be the most enthusiastic “Up With People” I’ve ever witnessed.

Oneida are about to embark on a rare European tour, paired with the O-side project, People of the North, who explore the harsher realms of Oneida’s sound. If you’re out that way, you owe it to yourself.

I recorded this set from our usual location in the venue, with the AKG’s clamped to the balcony just left of the soundboard, plus a board feed from Bowery FOH Kenny. The sound and performance are spectacular. Enjoy!

Mind Over Mirrors: February 5, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

February 24, 2015

Mind Over Mirrors

Since 2007, Mind Over Mirrors has been the solo outlet for Jaime Fennelly’s explorations with an Indian pedal harmonium processed through analog electronics and synthesizers. With the recent cassette release of The Voice Calling on Immune Recordings, Fennelly is joined by vocalist Haley Fohr, better known as Circuit des Yeux. At Union Pool, the duo played in near darkness, set up on the floor rather than on the stage, with Fennelly and Fohr facing inwards towards an impressive array of electronics. The crowd gathered around close as the room became a tight fit with the bulk of gear arranged mid-floor. The dark stillness punctured only by the swirling rhythms of Fennelly’s harmonium and Fohr’s ritualistic vocal paroxysms, the subtle glow of electronics and the occasional clinking of glasses at the bar. The three songs, all off of The Voice Calling, are played as a single piece, one subtly transmuting into the next. Performed live, each song eclipses its recorded counterpart’s length as if expanding to fill its new, larger container and seeking out new spaces to inhabit. The setting necessitates a hyper-acuteness to the experience and at the set’s conclusion there is a collective release of held breath as the tension between harmonium and voice resolves. It’s unclear if the collaboration between Fennelly and Fohr is intended to be long-term or whether it’s a one-off experiment; but either way, the results both live and on the album are compelling.

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony combined with a board feed from Union Pool FOH Leah. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Mind Over Mirrors just completed a tour with Daniel Bachman and their next scheduled performance is at the Levitation Festival in Chicago, March 13–14.

Horse Lords: February 5, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

February 13, 2015
By

Horse Lords

Horse Lords take a collage-like, mixtape approach to song and setlist construction, balancing instrumental jams with electronic texture pieces. Rather than beginning and ending, songs morph into one another, blurring the lines between compositions and styles. Hailing from Baltimore, a city that’s become well known for its rich music scene, Horse Lords perform a tightly-wound mathrock that blends the influence of African polyrhythms with motorik beats. Opening up for Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band at Union Pool, their set features four untitled tracks followed by their signature tune, “Outer East,” a twelve-minute jam that explores each aspect of their sound. That song also appears on their second album, Hidden Cities, which came out on NNA Tapes this past November. It follows a few self-released mixtapes and a self-titled LP on Baltimore weirdo label, Ehse Records. What’s impressive about their performance is each player’s ability to play in the spaces between the other instruments. Nowhere does it sound like like these guys are playing over one another, despite the complex interlaced rhythms. Percussion is central to their mission. Many tracks feature two drum kits, but there’s also a percussive element to the way the other instruments (guitar, bass, saxophone, and electronics) are handled. While it was a New Yorker recommendation for Chris Forsyth that ensured a packed house, the crowd was up for diverse and experimental music and Horse Lords elicited a well-deserved, rapturous response.

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony combined with a board feed from Union Pool FOH Leah. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

You can catch Horse Lords on tour with Liturgy in early April. Dates are listed on their website.

Noveller: January 29, 2015 Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

February 4, 2015
By

Noveller

The word “cinematic” is an often lazy descriptor employed in order to say something/anything about abstract instrumental music. And yet when discussing Noveller née Sarah Lipstate’s music, it’s exceedingly difficult not to use the word. Performing live, I can’t recall seeing her incorporate video or visuals into her set, despite being well-known as a filmmaker. Perhaps it’s because her music itself is already a visual medium, suggesting and conjuring images in the listener’s imagination, as if environments and topographies are being transported by sound. Her album and song titles are filled with geological and elemental references—glaciers, deserts, dunes, mountains, fire—so listening at home there is often some specific direction for the imagination. But live, without immediate access to song titles, the experience is something maybe a little less directed, left to the listener’s own mind.

I caught Noveller at Cameo Gallery for her Fantastic Planet record release show. Already the album’s title carries filmic connotations—Fantastic Planet (La Planète sauvage) is a French stop motion animated film from the seventies. (Its soundtrack, by Alain Goraguer, has recently been reissued and Ad Hoc’s latest zine has a feature on it.) I haven’t read anything affirming the record’s reference to the film, but the connection, however tenuous, is likely. New songs like “Into the Dunes,” “Rubicon,” and the driving, rhythmic “Pulse Point” sound coincident to that film’s bizarre imagery and stark landscapes. “Growing,” along with album- and set-closer “The Ascent” build towards a resolution to the action of the preceding songs and seem to emphasize some knowledge or understanding gained.

Though this set focuses mostly on the new record, it also integrates three selections from 2013’s No Dreams: the title track, “Purchase,” and “Gathering the Elements.” Thematically, those songs fit in seamlessly with the new material and while there’s definitely a narrative arc to her set, I’d be hard pressed to put it into words. Better to listen with an open mind and let the songs take you where they’re going.

I recorded this set with the mics positioned in front of the board and a feed from Cameo Gallery FOH Gary. The crowd was a little chatty so this mix favors the board feed with the mics adding some room depth. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Noveller plays tonight, February 4th, at The Wick as part of the Tinnitus Music Series. Tickets are still available.

Oneida: January 10, 2015 Palisades – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Oneida

The set you’re about to hear—or are already listening to depending on the order of things—is the seventeenth Oneida show posted here on NYCTaper. Without actually doing the legwork, I’m going to go ahead and assume they’re this site’s most recorded band. We’ve seen all types of Oneida shows. Full album performances. Early AM sets accompanied by pancakes. Literally hours-long sets of improvised jams. This one from Palisades is probably the shortest we’ve seen from Oneida, but what it lacks in length it more than makes up for in energy. Like other recent shows, they open with “Cedars” running straight into “Economy Travel.” The transition between the two songs has become so seamless that you barely realize it’s happened and by the time you do you’re deep into the latter song with little memory of how you arrived. New here is their cover of This Heat’s “S.P.Q.R.” A mostly literal cover of the original, it is furiously out of breath, tripping over itself, it’s center of gravity far out in front. If there’s any band that could do this one justice it’s Oneida. Lastly, the Hanoi Jane-sung battle cry “Cock Fight” closes out the set. Convinced it’s Friday (it was Saturday) Jane offers to take us into the weekend with one last jam. Whatever the day, the journey took us somewhere unexpected and we were different than when we had left.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Chris Forsyth one from the same night, with the AKG’s in front of the soundboard and pointed at the right stack plus a soundboard feed from Palisades FOH Ariel. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
