Crazy Pills DBA 4-8-14
[iphone photo by nyctaper]

When we put together a showcase for Death By Audio for last Tuesday, I was pretty excited going into the night. We had four excellent bands and although I’d never seen Crazy Pills live, their album had been on constant play for the last few weeks. When the show was a resounding success far beyond our expectations, it was in large part because many of the attendees already understood what we learned that night — that Crazy Pills has a infectious and kinetic stage energy that engaged the entire room from the start to the end of their forty minute set. The band is a trio fronted by Amanda B on guitar and vocals, Eddie from pow wow! on bass and Jim from Clouder on drums. The band’s debut album Restless is a mix of rockabilly, garage, brit invasion and power pop and it raves from start to finish. Their 9-song set contained seven tracks from the album, one new one and a fairly obscure cover. As with most of the crowd, we couldn’t keep from moving our feet throughout the set, and chuckling along with the witty and sometimes blue humor of the banter. Suffice to say that Crazy Pills are now on our must-see list, and that’s a good thing for us and our readers. They have several upcoming local dates, including a show at Grand Victory on May 2.

Acidjack and I recorded this set with his Naiant Omnis mounted to the ceiling about 20 feet from the stage and mixed with a fine board feed provided by DBA’s indefatigable leader Edan. The recording has all of the energy from the show with clear instrumentation and vocals and we’re extremely pleased with the quality. Enjoy!

Dean Wareham: April 5, 2014 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Dean Wareham has created music for more than 25 years, but he’s always been part of a group — be it Galaxie 500, Luna or Dean & Britta. In the last year, Dean has released an excellent EP and his first true solo album, and the current tour in support of the March release of his self-titled album came to Bowery Ballroom last week. Bowery is a venue that holds a special place in the history of Luna, having hosted the band’s final shows (we recorded a recent one-off reunion) that became the Tell Me Do You Miss Me documentary. Dean’s set was a democratic run through a selection of material from throughout his career and included only four songs from the new album and just the title track from the EP. But the crowd was as we’d hope for this performer — reverent and respectful during the music and properly enthusiastic in between. And they were rewarded, as Dean Wareham continues to produce outstanding music on par with his entire career output. Dean’s current tour is over, but he’ll be in Europe in May.

This show was recorded with precision by hiandlo, who utilized his Schoeps cards in conjunction with a well-balanced board feed to create a truly superb recording. Enjoy!

Wussy: April 4, 2014 The Studio at Webster Hall – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Wussy at Studio WH
[iphone photo by nyctaper]

Wussy’s new album Attica (Shake It Records) will be released in about a month. Its the band’s fifth full-length release and its certainly their most ambitious project thus far. The album fully incorporates touring guitarist John Erhardt as a full-time member and the added instrumentation is evident in the record’s production. Wussy recorded in the Afghan Whigs John Curley’s studio and the results are both stylistically consistent with their previous output and more fully realized. Wussy is still raw and authentic, and when we caught them live last week at The Studio at Webster Hall, still funny as hell. This band has some very dedicated fans — we receive more requests to record Wussy than any other band, believe it not — and the front half of the room at the Studio was packed. Lisa Walker even took time during the encore break to individually thank fans who she’d seen consistently at shows. The set was what we’ve come to expect from our previous experiences, a fun and energetic but a tad bit sloppy run through a good selection of the band’s Ohio americana/garage rock with frequent bits of hilarious banter. For this tour, the Attica material is obviously front and center and we’re streaming an excellent version of “Bug”, one of the standout tracks on the album.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards set up beside the soundboard in the rear of the rectangular room and mixed with a board feed provided by house FOH David. The chattering in the back of the room can be heard at quieter times in the recording, but overall the sound is quite excellent. Enjoy!

Hurray For The Riff Raff: April 2, 2014 Knitting Factory – Flac/MP3/Streaming

April 7, 2014
By

HFTRR LC

In February, Hurray For The Riff Raff released Small Town Heroes, their first album for ATO Records. As we’ve followed the band closely for several years, the last five recordings of HFTRR on this site have also followed the growth and development of these songs over time. The album is a brilliant dose of Americana but the songcraft is truly what shines in the collection of inspired tracks. There’s the Carter Family influenced old country of “Blue Ridge Mountain”, country-rock in “End Of The Line”, New Orleans blues of “St Roch Blues”, the John Prine-ish title track, and the reverse/revenge murder ballad “The Body Electric” — all of which are authentic interpretations of the best of American music. HFTRR recently had a major personnel change when Sam Doores returned to his own excellent band The Deslondes. Our previous HFTRR experience featured Deslondes as the opening band, and Sam guested on several tracks. This past week at Knitting Factory was our first HFTRR show where Alynda Lee was the sole front-person and the growth in both her stage maturity and ease in the spotlight continue to impress. But she’s still a kid at heart and it brought smiles when she told of her shyness at meeting one of her idols Lucinda Williams at SXSW this year. I couldn’t help but think that ten years or so from now young performers will approach their idol Alynda Lee with the same timidity. We’re streaming the Lucinda cover played this night. Hurray For The Riff Raff are currently on tour in selected US cities throughout April before they head to Europe for a handful of shows in May.

I recorded this set in our usual manner in this venue — Sennheiser cards at the soundboard mixed with a feed from talented house FOH Rob. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

NYCTaper Presents at Death By Audio – Tuesday April 8

DBA 4-8

This excellent four-band show takes place on Tuesday night at Death by Audio and it features our friends Whiskey Bitches among a group of up-and-coming local groups. Whiskey Bitches party punk has been documented in these pages, but we’re also happy to be working with Crazy Pills whose kinetic garage rock is sure to get feet moving. Idiot Son reminds me very much of the avant scene in Manhattan in the early 80s. They also call to mind early Mark E Smith and the Fall. 56k is a relatively new garage band from Brooklyn that shows great promise.

Here are the details:
Tuesday April 8, 8pm

Larkin Grimm: February 26, 2014 Trans Pecos – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The nice thing about raw talent is that it never really goes away. Larkin Grimm has a powerful and soulful voice that is so striking in its beauty. It is the keystone of her remarkable career. But Larkin last played shows regularly around the release of her last album in early 2012 — we recorded the CD release show. In the last two years, she’s been home raising her son and living a family life. But with a batch of new songs, it was time for Larkin Grimm to return to live performance and we were so happy that one of her first shows back was our NYCTaper event at Trans Pecos a few weeks ago. From the very first note of her set it was clear that she was happy to be back, and we were happy to see her. The voice was as strong as ever and it was perhaps the most relaxed and satisfying set we have ever seen Larkin play. She assembled an outstanding band and worked through a forty minute set with a couple of new songs, some old favorites and one traditional number. Larkin Grimm will next play at the Martin Bisi CD release show at Glasslands on April 15.

acidjack recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in the wide-angle ORTF pattern at the stage lip, combined with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Thou: March 23, 2014 Saint Vitus – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Thou_UnartigNYC Screen
[screen shot from UnartigNYC video]

Throughout their career Thou has been very prolific band, but their new album Heathen is actually the band’s first full length in four years and the first music they’ve released in over a year. The album is a powerful work that combines the band’s traditional doom metal with elements of shoegaze and post-rock to create a masterful work where the music truly compliments Thou’s lyrical vision. The tour reached NYC last week and we caught the Sunday night show at Saint Vitus. The band’s set consisted of five of the seven full songs from Heathen and despite some humorous in between song requests, it seemed as if the sold-out crowd was with them the whole way. Thou are currently on tour across the country throughout April but will return to NYC in July for several local shows.

I recorded this set with the Sennheisers mounted in front of the soundboard and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Doug Keith: March 19, 2014 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

My first introduction to Doug Keith was as the talented multi-instrumentalist who has backed Sharon Van Etten in her rise from local favorite to international star. With the release of his new album Pony, Doug has stepped out from the shadows into the limelight without missing a beat. As he has been a loyal bandmate, as frontman Doug has reaped the benefit of good karma to gather some of the best musicians around to help with the album and the tour. Dinosaur Jr.’s guitar maven J. Mascis guests on the album’s “Pure Gold in the 70s” (live version streaming below), and the tour group is a band of all-stars featuring Zeke Hutchins from SVE Band on drums, and brothers Phil and Brad Cook from Megafaun (and a bunch of other projects) on guitars, keyboards and bass. At Bowery Ballroom last Wednesday, Doug’s set opening for The War On Drugs was a very satisfying forty-minute set that featured six of the nine tracks from Pony and one neat cover. With Sharon due to tour the world beginning in June, its likely that the solo Doug Keith will be on the shelf for a while. But we’ll have this special set to keep us until his return.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the War On Drugs set and except for a little bit of crowd chatter, the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!

The War On Drugs: March 19, 2014 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

March 23, 2014

The War On Drugs new album Lost In The Dream is a record that can only be adequately described in grand sweeping terms. This release is not simply in the “best of 2014″ discussion, it will be considered one the best of this decade. There have been some lofty review ratings posted for Lost this week, and much effusive praise, but as we have chronicled the growth of this band and Adam Graduciel over the last five years, the album is a natural progression for a group whose two prior records were each superb. But Lost In the Dream changes the equation and ups the ante for The War On Drugs. The ten songs on this album are each microcosms of the work as a whole — the struggles and doubts of a man in his mid-30s grappling with passage of youth and the inevitable approach of middle age — each set to haunting and evocative melodies that echo in the ear even after moving on to the next track. The stories of Adam’s obsessions with the minutiae of the production of this albums have all been told. The man truly suffers for his art. But ultimately the musicianship finds itself equal to the songcraft. Lost is the first War On Drugs album where the songs are given a chance to breath and step outside themselves to reach remarkable crescendos. The lazy term would be that the songs “jam”, but these aren’t improvisations instead rather meticulously crafted passages. For instance, “Eyes To The Wind” hits its peak with a screaming guitar solo that segues to sax and then piano and back to guitar seamlessly and almost without the listener recognizing the lead change.

For the band’s current tour, Adam has assembled the core band but has added two ringers, multi-instrumentalists John Natchez and Anthony LeMarca. We attended the Bowery Ballroom shows on Wednesday and Thursday and if the album truly deserves the superlatives so in fact does the live show. On Wednesday, The War On Drugs worked through the entire Lost In The Dream (minus one instrumental track) and selected classic material in a 100-minute set that was stunning in its ability to not only capture the magic of Lost but expand upon its instrumental passages. We have never seen Adam more confident and in charge and on stage the band’s mood appeared both celebratory and all-business. There was even a champagne bottle poured into cups on stage on Wednesday. But if there is any sadness in this band’s triumph, its that this is almost certainly the last time The War On Drugs will play a room the size of Bowery Ballroom. Given how quickly and thoroughly the three NYC shows sold out, the band could have played five local shows without an empty seat. As the tour continues West and then ultimately moves to Europe, we expect that The War On Drugs will return to NYC in the Fall.

I recorded this set in our usual manner in this venue – Sennheiser cards mounted in the balcony and mixed with an excellent board feed, this time mixed by the band’s FOH C. Laszlo Koltay to perfection. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
