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

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.

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!

Birds of Maya: September 7, 2013 Paradise of Bachelors / WXYC Day Show, Hopscotch Music Festival (Raleigh, NC) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

If certain people are to be believed, Birds of Maya is the best rock n’ roll band in Philadelphia. Which, considering how essential that city’s rock tradition has been to the genre in the last few years, is saying a hell of a lot. In recent years, acts like Purling Hiss (the newer vehicle of BoM’s Mike Polizze) and Spacin’ have gotten a lot of the ink, but Birds of Maya is what started it all. After killer sets from fellow Philadelphians Spacin’ and Chris Forsyth earlier in the day at the Paradise of Bachelors / WXYC day show during Hopscotch Music Festival, it was only fitting that the day ended with the BoM mothership blasting us off to 1969 with some epically heavy chooglin’. Rarely bothering with such studio niceties as polished production and carefully laid out song titles, Birds of Maya’s official releases soar on the pure adrenaline of monster riffs made with total commitment and no bad attitudes. Ready to Howl, for example, is a double LP consisting of three songs – “Friday”, “Saturday” and “Sunday”. That’s how they roll.

All of that made BoM an ideal coda to a perfect weekend outdoor show, as the band roared through four epic-length tracks. That old Spinal Tap line about cranking your amps to 11 isn’t, it turns out, a figure of speech — Birds of Maya pushed out enough onstage volume that the amps seethed with fuzz. This set of continuous music brought all the heat of the band’s LPs, with the spontaneity and good vibes of the live setting to boot. Just listen to “E.O.I.”, streaming below, to get an idea of how it felt to see these guys in action.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones and a soundboard feed. As noted, BoM’s amps were cranked, causing the board feed to distort a little. So, this sounds similar to a Birds of Maya album — loud, fuzzy and raw. It’s a thing of beauty. Enjoy!
