Luna’s first show in New York in 10 years was one of those damned-near perfect evenings that pretty much represents why we do what we do here at NYCTaper. On a beautiful night, one of the great New York bands in recent memory played a superb show before a huge crowd for the opening night of the Northside Festival. Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips are married, perform often together, and live in LA where they are friendly with drummer Lee Wall, and the couple have also played with guitarist Sean Eden on a few occasions, including a show we recorded in 2012. So, the Luna reunion was by no means a surprising event, but it was so sweet in its fruition.

The first reunion show this year was a night in LA in April, and then the band played sixteen dates in Spain and Portugal (Dean’s tour diary is a great read). When they returned to the US for this one-off Brooklyn show the band was in sync, relaxed and poised to deliver. From the opening “Slide”, the first song on the first album, through personal favorite “California” (streaming below) and continuing with a career-spanning setlist the show never really let up with the positive energy. The between-song banter also indicated that the band was both having fun playing and having fun being together. Several times the band acknowledged specific uber-fans, people wearing vintage Luna t-shirts, and various landmarks on the NYC skyline. Dean has remarked that Sean Eden has never played better guitar and on this night Sean seemed to be having the time of his life. The show was also special because the night was Britta Phillips birthday and the band acknowledged that fact early in the set. The main set concluded with an incendiary eight-minute long “23 Minutes in Brussels” (which we are also streaming below), before the band returned for two well-deserved encores including their cover of Beat Happening’s “Indian Summer”.

Luna returns to NYC for three sold-out shows at the Bowery Ballroom (October 7 and 8) and Music Hall of Williamsburg (October 9). All dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted in front of the soundboard cage and mixed with an excellent feed. The wind was not too bad but can be heard a few times, but fortunately the board cage was moved closer to the stage this year so that the audience feed is quite good. This mix favors the audience feed by about 60/40, giving it a nice “you are there” feel with the board used as a supplement to fortify the overall sound. The result is a superb recording that we feel fairly represents this great night. Enjoy!

Dean & Britta (with Luna reunion!): July 21, 2012 Mulcahy’s Wantagh NY – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

July 26, 2012

The amazing story of how this Dean & Britta / Luna reunion concert at the Tommy Brull Foundation Benefit came to fruition is a tale that bears repeating many times over. Tommy Brull was a huge Luna fan, and as his brother Martin relates in the introduction to this recording, many of the memories of his friends and family have of Tommy revolve around seeing or listening to the music of Luna. After several unsuccessful attempts to persuade Dean and Britta to perform at previous Benefits, fate intervened. This Winter, Martin answered an ad for a guitar for sale on craigslist and was shocked to find that the seller was none other than Dean Wareham. When Martin sampled the guitar by playing some of Luna’s “Tiger Lily”, a connection was made. And when Dean learned the details of the life of Tommy Brull and the mission of the Foundation, Dean and Britta agreed to play this year’s Shine A Light Festival. For the show, Sean Eden also agreed to play, and the Luna reunion was set. On Saturday night in Wantagh, I arrived in time to witness some of the Luna soundcheck. It seemed like no time had passed since the last incarnation of the band said farewell with a series of shows at Bowery Ballroom. With Dean, Sean and Britta out front and joined by Dean and Britta drummer Anthony LaMarca, this was as close to a full-fledged Luna reunion as we are likely to ever see — and it was one night only. The set began with two Galaxie 500 songs and a stunning cover of Nico’s (penned by Dylan) “I’ll Keep It With Mine” that we are streaming below. After a brief introduction, Sean joined the band on stage and the balance of the set contained seven Luna songs and two more Galaxie 500 songs that Luna performed often. The guitar interplay between Dean and Sean was spot on, and the rhythm section was flawless. In tribute to Martin and fate’s intervention, we are streaming “Tiger Lily” with the faith that Tommy Brull is smiling, knowing that more than a decade since his passing, he can still make amazing things happen.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser 8040’s on stage and mixed with a soundboard feed. A problem with the phantom powering of the Sennheiser’s led to a minimal signal from the on-stage feed, and I relied heavily (75%) on the board feed for the mix. The feed is quite heavily on kick drums but after quite a bit of editing, I was able to produce an excellent listening recording. With those caveats, enjoy!

Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band: September 21, 2017 Union Pool

October 9, 2017
By

No matter how many times we see Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band, we always have something new to look forward to. This set celebrated the official release on No Quarter records of Dreaming In the Non-Dream, whose material we had heard live in various stages of completion over the past year. The outstanding final album versions are a can’t miss, so it was interesting for us to see how they’ve evolved live since the album’s release. This show at Union Pool covered three quarters of the album (meaning, three out of four songs) as well as two favorites from The Rarity of Experience, “High Castle Rock” and set-closer “The First Ten Minutes of Cocksucker Blues.” Forsyth broke this show into three parts, which he characterized as the “high-impact instrumental section, the singing section, and the long section.” As Forsyth regulars, we were jazzed to get a rare cover — Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied” as part of the vocal portion. But really, any appointment with Chris and his excellent band is one worth keeping. Catch them out on the road stateside for a few November shows, including November 18 at Brooklyn Steel with Luna.

I recorded this set with MBHO cardiod microphones, together with Doug’s house. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

A Place To Bury Strangers: July 16, 2017 Out In The Street Festival

August 28, 2017

[photo by nyctaper]

It was ten years ago when A Place To Bury Strangers broke. It was during that small window of time when blogs were tastemakers and willy-nilly determined random band flavors of the month. Except when it came to APTBS, their talent and depth were hard to get wrong. This was a band whose intensity was clear and whose ability to project a wall of sound was magnified by Oliver Ackermann’s world class pedal business. The Death By Audio pedal company pre-dated and survived the venue of the same name and the electroncic wizardry and meticulous and inventive craft propelled noise makers of all shapes and sizes, but none more directly than APTBS.

The second day of the annual Out In The Streets Fest was headlined by APTBS and the band came prepared. Before doors even opened for the day, Oliver spent several minutes playing with gadgets in the middle of the floor and he and bassist Dion Lunadon did some neat improv. Hours later in the pitch dark APTBS began their sonic assault and did not let up for the better part of an hour. The band last released an album in 2015 (Transfixiation on Dead Oceans) and several of those songs were featured in the set. But there also seemed to be a handful of newer songs that may feature on an upcoming release. At least it seems that APTBS is gearing up for recording and working out the material on the road — their packed tour schedule cuts through most of Europe through September, October and part of November (dates here). This band still very much has the intensity that first brought them into prominence and this set was our confirmation of that fact. We’ll be back when they return to the US.

I recorded this set with the Neumann large diaphragm cardioids mounted in the center of the floor in front of the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed from the board. This set was intensely loud and the band was plentiful in its use of effects, so there are some moments where the mix is rough, but overall this is an excellent representation of a tremendous set. Enjoy!

In 2010, Dean and Britta released 13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, a soundtrack for the pop artist’s black and white film clips of his “superstars” that was commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The selection of subjects vary from the well-known (Lou Reed, Dennis Hopper) to the iconic (Edie Sedgwick, Nico) to the obsure (Paul America, Freddie Herko) but all are connected by their work with Warhol. The album incorporates Wareham/Phillips original compositions, one unreleased Luna track, a lost Velvet Underground cover and several other covers in a project that provides emotionally apposite tributes for these historical figures.

In December of 1966, the Velvet Underground and the Exploding Plastic Inevitable first appeared in concert in Philadelphia at the Y as part of the Philadelphia Art Festival. Many of the subjects of 13 Most Beautiful were in attendance and captured for history via photographs that were displayed at the Y’s 50th anniversary of this pivotal moment in the City’s art and musical history. The ultimate celebration of the half-century anniversary occurred in mid-December with a performance by Dean and Britta of their tribute album.

The set began with a pre-recorded intro of the ambient “Richard Rheem Theme” as the band entered the room. Thereafter, the 13 album was performed in its natural order. This was not however a strictly album-order performance but rather featured in-between song descriptions of the characters and history of the subjects — the funny, sad and often tragic lives of Warhol’s iconic subjects. Dean and Britta clearly have connected personally with this material and the result was a concert of great emotion that is one of my favorite ever performances by the couple.

The recording was captured by Kubacheck from a very advantageous position with his best mobile rig and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
