Robert Millis: April 10, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 12, 2015
By

Robert Millis

Robert Millis may be best-known as a founding member of the long-running, experimental Climax Golden Twins and for his work with Sublime Frequencies, as a compiler and obsessive hunter of long-forgotten 78s from around the globe. At least, that was my familiarity with him prior to his set at Union Pool a couple months back, opening for friend and fellow seeker of the obscure, Sir Richard Bishop (his set posted here). Here, in solo mode, Millis’ set is true to the multivalence of his musical pursuits. It’s a combination of folk, spoken word, improvisation, drone, and noise. Something for everyone here: acoustic and electric guitar narratives “Notes on a Scandal” and “Pretty Polly”; the guitar drone piece, “The Demise of the Progressive Lens Routine” (referring to some earlier banter); and the haunting set closer, “Sign of Judgement.”

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

Dommengang: June 6, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 10, 2015
By

Dommengang

Dommengang is the latest addition to Thrill Jockey’s roster of some of the finest hard psych bands out there, including Eternal Tapestry, Pontiak, White Hills, Rhyton, and Arbouretum—just to name a few. Celebrating the release of their new record, Everybody’s Boogie, Dommengang stopped by Union Pool this past weekend for a one-off gig to air tracks off that record. Despite frontman Sig Wilson’s insistence that the band hasn’t played together in a year, it doesn’t show as the band immediately syncs into a lockstep groove that doesn’t waver during their thirty-plus-minute set. Underpinning Wilson’s guitar riffage are bassist Brian Markham and drummer Adam Bulgasem. The three are clearly comfortable playing together and after seeing their live set I get the impression that Everybody’s Boogie is one of those albums born of extensive jamming that’s then honed into an album. Favorites here include the chugging “CC,” “Her Blues” (for which the band made a video), and the twangy “Hats Off to Magic.” So far no more live dates have been announced but east and west coast dates are promised in support of Everybody’s Boogie.

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony. Though I got a board feed from Union Pool FOH Kevin, I set the levels a little high and ended up with some distortion so this recording only uses the room mics. However, Kevin’s expertise behind the board and Union Pool’s excellent sound system make for a terrific recording that captures all of Dommegang’s heaviness. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

Vulture Shit: April 28, 2015 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Vulture Shit
[Photo by Jamie Langley]

“We’re Vulture Shit. That’s the worst kind of shit.” —Randy Vandal, Vulture Shit

Vulture Shit are a non-traditional post-hardcore trio traveling under what I’m pretty convinced are assumed names: Randy Vandal (vocals), Mike D. (drums), and Mike B. (bass). If you were in a band called Vulture Shit, you’d disguise your true identity too. But these guys are no superheroes—according to their lyrics they are all too normal. Disgustingly, creepily normal. Feel free to connect with them on LinkedIn (surely the height of social networking banality), though your odds of landing that new gig will probably diminish due to the association. But enough about the players—what about the music? The lack of guitar is the obvious insight, but it’s not missed at all. Mike B.’s expert bass-playing is absolutely singular and I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard anything like it. Combined with Mike D.’s powerhouse drumming, this is all Vulture Shit needs in terms of instrumentation. Randy Vandal vocalizes like a younger Matt Korvette (Pissed Jeans) or a way younger David Yow (you know). Laying down a whopping twelve songs in twenty-three minutes, this trio wowed a crowd—myself included—that had shown up early to catch Pile (their set here).

Baby’s FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with a board feed and the Baby’s room mics. I mixed those two sources in post-production. Like the Pile set from the same night, the sound is exceptional even for Baby’s standards. Enjoy!

You can take my word—and this recording—for it, but seeing is believing: catch Vulture Shit next Friday June 12 on a stellar Northside Fest showcase at Aviv, along with NYCTaper favs Washer. Tickets are on sale.

Pile: April 28, 2015 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 5, 2015

Pile
[Photo by Jamie Langley]

Don’t be surprised when Pile’s latest long-player, You’re Better Than This, is all over 2015’s year-end lists. It’s the most immediately engaging record I’ve heard all year, and another winner from the folks at Exploding in Sound Records. Pile has been supporting the record with a never-ending tour, putting Rick Maguire high up on the list of hardest working musicians in the game. This Baby’s All Right show from April is their second stop in NYC this year, having previously played the grittier Palisades in February. Meanwhile, NYCTaper caught up with the band down in Austin for a short SXSW showcase set back in March (that recording here).

You’re Better Than This has put Pile on many people’s radars, but it was clear from the crowd that some people have been with Pile all along. Early adopters could be identified as the ones mouthing the words to even older songs like “Pets” from the 2010 self-released album, Magic Isn’t Real, as well as “The Browns” and “Grunt Like a Pig” from the 2012 EIS debut Dripping. Though I’m a bit newer to the band, I count myself lucky to have caught them at Baby’s—these guys won’t be playing 280-capacity rooms for long.

Baby’s FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with a board feed and the Baby’s room mics. I mixed those two sources in post-production. The sound quality of this recording is above and beyond even Baby’s usual high standards for sound. Enjoy!

Pile will be back around playing The Bell House on July 3. Tickets are still available.

Media Jeweler: April 3, 2015 Shea Stadium – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

May 29, 2015
By

Media Jeweler
[Photo by acidjack]

Media Jeweler are a new-ish four piece from the OC, and since 2013 they’ve been laying down a category-defying brand of post-rock with complex, overlapping rhythms and repeating motifs. Acidjack and I stumbled upon them last month playing an opening set at Shea Stadium. We were blown away by their unique jams and a set crafted not like a collection of disparate elements but as a concise and deliberate piece. That ability carries over to their upcoming album, $99 R/T HAWAII, for which I scored a sneak preview that lives up to the high expectations conjured by their live performance. The band was in town for one night only, stopping off at Shea after recording in Providence, RI and this marks their first live appearance outside of California. The album is due out soon, but in the meantime you can catch Media Jeweler at some live dates out by their home turf. They’re planning a return to the east coast this fall, a visit I’m already looking forward to.

This set was recorded by Shea Stadium engineer, Nick Pitman. I mixed down the multitrack files and the sound is excellent. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Obnox: May 15, 2015 Cake Shop – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

May 22, 2015

Obnox
[Photo by Jason House, I’m Just Here For the Bands]

Last year’s Louder Space wasn’t so much a breakthrough album for Obnox as it was a perfect distillation of Lamont Bim Thomas’ prolific garage-punk/hip-hop outfit. If the juxtaposition of those two genres gives you pause, fear not: Thomas is equally comfortable whether he’s doing an MC5-inspired cover of Neil Young’s “Ohio” or namechecking Mary J. Blige. He’s followed up Louder Space this year with the excellent Boogalou Reed (on 12XU) and the just-released Know America (on Ever/Never Records), an airwaves-takeover-style concept record. And in case I didn’t sufficiently highlight the word “prolific,” he’s got another record coming Ever/Never later this year. Even with this wealth of new material, last week’s Obnox set from Cake Shop (currently celebrating their ten-year anniversary) is packed with hits from the deepest reaches of their discography: “How to Rob (The Punk Years),” “Molecule,” “Mecca Son Shine,” and “Red I” from Louder Space; “Dough” and the title track from the “Smoke Woody Haze” EP; “Being Cleveland” from the double LP Corrupt Free Enterprise. The newer tracks are “Loudpack” and “Grease” from Know America, and “Watching You” from Boogalou Reed. Meanwhile, “Carmen, I Love You” is out digitally but a vinyl issue seems imminent. Some technical troubles prevented Thomas from playing guitar for the bulk of the set, but what’s missed in his distorted guitar work is more than made up for by his on-point vocal delivery and best-in-the-business stage banter.

I recorded this set with a pair of AKGs set up at the stage lip and a pair of Church Audio cards positioned to pick up the monitors. Very special thanks to Cake Shop’s engineer Jeff, who made this recording possible by helping me out with a loaner stand. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band: April 18, 2015 Baby’s All Right

Even though he’s Philadelphia-based, New York looks more and more like Chris Forsyth’s home turf, having already played a couple shows here this year. On a short break between recording and mixing their next record for No Quarter, Forsyth and the Solar Motel crew stopped by NYC for a one-off with likeminded jammers Howlin Rain (their set posted here). This set from Baby’s All Right is comprised entirely of new material that’s slated to appear on that next record: “High Castle Rock” and “The Rarity of Experience, Parts 1–2” we’ve heard before but “Anthem” and “Harmonious Dance” are completely new to us. The new one won’t drop until 2016, so in the mean time we’ve got you covered with another live Solar Motel excursion.

Baby’s FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with a board feed and the Baby’s room mics. I mixed those two sources in post-production. It might be our best Forsyth capture yet. Dig in!

Forsyth also has an upcoming collaboration with Koen Holtkamp of Mountains called The Island and due out on Trouble in Mind this fall.

B Boys

Hey there, b boys and b girls. Today, we’ve got a fresh recording of a local Brooklyn trio, B Boys. These guys mine the rich territory of late ’70s post-punk acts like Wire and the Buzzcocks mixed with a more modern garage-y sound. You may have caught them playing out recently at Silent Barn or one of the final shows at Death By Audio last November. They’re in the studio right now recording their first album, but meanwhile they’re also sharing a studio version of “Other Head” on their Bandcamp page. We caught up with B Boys opening up for Tyvek at Silent Barn last month and were surprised at how catchy these tunes are. Their short, to-the-point set will no doubt leave you wanting more, but only after you’ve had the poppy “I Don’t Mind” and the aggro “Psycho” on repeat for a while, not to mention the weird, bendy “Other Head.”

I recorded this set with the AKGs in front of the board combined with a feed from Silent Barn’s Yaman Palak. The sound is as raw as punk rock should be. Enjoy!

Six Organs of Admittance
[Photos by Jamie Langley]

For many Six Organs of Admittance fans, 2012’s Ascent delivered on something they’ve been waiting for a long time: the Six Organs-Comets on Fire record. The long-fabled collaboration—essentially Ben Chasny backed by his Comets bandmates—was originally teased way back in 2009 by Ethan Miller’s Silver Currant blog as “The Lost Electric Six Organs Album.” It featured three demos, all of which would later be recorded for Ascent. The demos themselves would get a limited CD-R/tape release from Silver Current as well. Three years later, Six Organs is back with Hexadic, in which all the songs were composed according to a complex card-based system that I won’t bother trying to explain. (If you want to know more about that go straight to the source and pick up Chasney’s book, The Hexadic System.) Hexadic does two things for Six Organs: it picks up where Ascent leaves off with another electric, high-energy version of the band; and it also completely re-formulates and invigorates the project. For songs that were composed based on a formal system, they downright rock.

Finally making their way to the east coast this April (there was a February west coast tour), this lineup of Six Organs at Baby’s All Right features Andrew Mitchell on bass and Adam Payne on drums. Five songs here are from Hexadic while the balance of the set sees the band drawing from across the Six Organs catalog. The most surprising inclusion is “Black Needle Rhymes” off of 1999’s Dust & Chimes, here re-imagined as a medley with a cover of Coil’s “Fire of the Mind.” “Shelter From the Ash” and “A Thousand Birds” are Six Organs hits if I’ve ever heard one. But my absolute favorite moment in this set is when “Home” (from School of the Flower) segues seamlessly into “Anesthesia” (from Luminous Night). It’s positively chilling.

Baby’s All Right FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with the house mics and a soundboard feed and I mixed the two sources in post-production, like the Elisa Ambrogio set from the same night. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Six Organs of Admittance is still on tour with Elisa Ambrogio. Check the dates here.

Elisa Ambrogio
[Baby’s All Right photos by Jamie Langley]

If you somehow missed out on Elisa Ambrogio’s sleeper-hit solo record, The Immoralist, last year, it’s time to rectify that. Besides the standout single “Superstitious” garnering a Best Tracks of 2014 slot from Pitchfork, the entire album is superb front-to-back. And fear not Magik Markers fans, Ambrogio’s signature guitar work is all over this record. It’s a quieter album that you might have expected from the Markers front-woman, but also one any fan of that band will find satisfying. The songwriting will feel familiar but for this solo record the subject matter is more personal and the vocals are upfront so that you can hear every word. If you got in on the two records from the tragically under appreciated 200 Years (the duo of Ambrogio with Six Organs of Admittance mastermind Ben Chasny), you’ll have a good idea what to expect from her solo outing.

I’ve been lucky enough to catch Elisa Ambrogio’s solo tour twice this year, each time with different supporting musicians and each lending a slightly different perspective to the songs. Back in January, she stopped by Silent Barn on the tail end of a tour with banjo-player and multi-instrumentalist Nathan Bowles on drums (his set posted here). Then, on the second leg of a tour with Six Organs of Admittance this past week at Baby’s All Right, Ambrogio played a few solo songs followed by some full band songs with Ben Chasny on guitar and drummer Adam Payne (also of Residual Echoes). Ambrogio and Chasny even dust off one of their 200 Years tunes, “West Hartford.” Perhaps due to the late hour or the DIY venue, the Silent Barn set is the looser of the two, with Ambrogio coming nearly unhinged in her solo finale of “Kylie.” In contrast, the Baby’s set is slightly more polished, with Chasny’s subtle guitar work adding some interesting texture to the songs, particularly on “Far From Home.”

The Silent Barn set was recorded with the AKGs set up in front of the soundboard combined with a board feed. There’s a little more ambient crowd noise on this one (particularly the first minute or two of “Comers”), but Ambrogio’s powerful songs soon quell the crowd and the set is quite enjoyable. The Baby’s All Right set was recorded by FOH Harrison Fore, combining the house mics with a stereo board feed. The respectful and attentive crowd is reflected in the clarity of the recording. Overall, the two sets present varying but complementary takes on Ambrogio’s live sets. I think you’ll enjoy them!

Elisa Ambrogio is still on tour with Six Organs of Admittance. Check the dates here.
