We reported a couple of months ago that nyctaper recordings were used for some of the sections of the new Fiery Furnaces live album Remember. When we spoke to Matt Friedberger after we recorded the Furnaces at East River Park a couple of weeks ago, he confirmed that nyctaper recording were on the record in at least 3 spots, and also that we were thanked in the liner notes. Thrill Jockey Records confirms that we are on the liner notes by name.
The 2-CD / 3-LP release is due in stores on August 19. All merch copies were sold out before the Furnaces arrived back in NYC, but we expect our copy in the mail any day. In the mean time, Thrill Jockey has released a sample MP3 from the release. The sample track sounds like a multitrack soundboard recording.

Fresh off the outstanding performance of his classic Can You Fly at Maxwell’s, Freedy Johnston announced on his website today that he will appear on following dates over the next two months at The Living Room (154 Ludlow Street) in Manhattan:
August 12th- The Living Room – New York, NY
August 19th- The Living Room – New York, NY
August 26th- The Living Room – New York, NY
September 3rd- The Living Room – New York, NY
September 10th- The Living Room – New York, NY
September 17th- The Living Room – New York, NY
September 24th- The Living Room – New York, NY
As The Living Room has its own in-house recording system, and an exclusive contract with XM Satellite Radio, its unclear whether nyctaper will be permitted by the venue to capture any of these performances. We will post any updates.
Carla Bozulich‘s Evangelista have announced a bunch of Summer US dates on their tour page, including an August 28 show at Bowery Ballroom opening for Xiu Xiu. As our previously scheduled August 28 recording date has been canceled, we expect to capture this set.
The more interesting part of Carla’s Summer tour announcement is the “Experience Experiment”, contained at the bottom of the tour page:
For the cost of us traveling plus $100 for each bandmember, Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista will play for at least an hour at your birthday party, graduation,funeral, going away party, existential malaise, excorcism, body aches, muscle soreness, clean/sober birthday or anniversary celebration, decapitation, wedding, art opening and closings, dance party, magazine, store or yaught launchings, cult-removal, viking funerals, removal of orthodontic contraptions and/or root canal, chili cook-off, catcentrics, batmitzvah, pet lizard funeral, et cetera.
And to make it more enticing:
included in this fee we will also:
1. write a song expecially for you and your friends.
2. arrange and perform any one cover song of your choosing, or any request from back catalog
3.give you one mix-tape made just for you from EACH BANDMEMBER.
As we informed our readers last week, The Feelies will perform again in NYC this Fall. Today it was announced that The Feelies will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 20, and Bowery Ballroom on September 21. Tickets for both of these concerts go on sale on Friday August 1.
Our recording of the Feelies reunion at Maxwell’s and our correspondent recording at Battery Park have been two of the more popular downloads in recent months at nyctaper, and the download requests include two from members of the band! We hope to again capture this legendary band’s return to performance in September.
Bon Iver performs at two sold out NYC shows in the next two nights, tonight (7/29) at Bowery Ballroom and tomorrow (7/30) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. nyctaper was politely asked not to record these shows, as there are already many live recording options for Bon Iver fans.
For our readers who may be disappointed that nyctaper will not capture this outstanding artist in his triumphant return to NYC, here are the many available live recordings of Bon Iver already out on the web:
