With Oneida, you never have to worry about seeing the same show twice. Even if you’re hearing the same song — for example, the mammoth version of “Cedars” from this night’s show at Glasslands compared to the one we documented at the start of the year at the Knitting Factory – you won’t necessarily know it if you don’t pay close attention. As our review of the Knitting Factory show pointed out, at this point, referring to an Oneida show’s “setlist” is kind of missing the point. This band has long-since abandoned the conventional, which is why they continue to be a major draw in the underground scene in New York seventeen years in despite minimal blog hype and virtually no mainstream exposure. An Oneida show is an event, a celebration of what music can be when all of the downward pressures on creativity are cut.

Joining the band for this show, as he did at Glasslands last year, was James McNew of Yo La Tengo and Dump, whose bass playing mingled nicely with the swirling controlled chaos on the stage. Although technically a four-song “set”, this set had a similar structure, with a 40-minute sequence of “Cedars” into “Economy Travel” adding two shorter songs, “Cock Fight” and “You Get Brighter” (a 48-minute version of which appeared at the 2013 Glasslands show) to round it out. We expect to see some of these compositions whittled down to album length for a future release, but in a way that’d be a shame. This act’s sound cannot be contained on a few pieces of plastic, nor can their songs properly be culled to one right “version”. The beauty is in the expression of it at a given time on a given night–the very reason live recordings exist in the first place.

I recorded this set with a Schoeps MK5 and Schoeps MK8 capsule in the “mid-side” configuration on-stage to allow maximum adjustment capability to the stereo image, combined with a soundboard feed from Glasslands head of production Josh Thiel. The sound quality is quite simply phenomenal — one of the best recordings I think I can take credit for. Enjoy!

Woods: April 22, 2014 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Full Set Streaming

Before sharing their latest sounds at yet another blockbuster of a show at the Bowery Ballroom in May, which we recorded, Woods kicked off their tour with a more intimate show at the Williamsburg clubhouse Baby’s All Right, curated by our friends at BrooklynVegan. Meant to also celebrate the release of their latest album, With Light and With Love. If band founder, lead singer and guitarist Jeremy Earl had any concerns that this first outing with the new stuff might come off ragged but right, he needn’t have had them — at least about the “ragged” part. This show displayed the band’s now-familiar virtuosity and served as a preview of what was to come later in the tour. This night, as at Bowery, the band pulled off a tight segue of “Shining” into the classic jam song “Bend Beyond” that exited into “Size Meets The Sound”, proving that the more approachable sound of With Light and With Love felt right at home with the band’s earlier material. It is always a treat to catch a Woods show, but especially so in a club of this size; this is a band that fills and belongs in bigger venues, but hasn’t forgotten where they came from.

This set was recorded on the Baby’s All Right house multitrack and, as usual, the sound quality is outstanding. The full set is streaming below as well as FLAC and MP3 downloads as usual. Enjoy!

Mary Halvorson: July 14, 2014 The Wick – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Mary Halvorson is a multi-talented, multifaceted musician who represents the best of the New York scene, which is to say that she seems to be everywhere all at once. A survey of her recent shows includes everything from more sedate jazz gigs at Cornelia Street Cafe, appearances with Tim Berne at the avant-jazz club Roulette, a show in the band People at Death By Audio, and of course, her current performances as opening act for Buzz Osborne aka King Buzzo of the Melvins, currently promoting his new solo album (that recording soon). As the New Yorker put it more succinctly, “she’s in tons of bands”.

While we have tried to feature many of the best-known current virtuoso guitarists on this site, this is a first appearance for Halvorson, a slight embarrassment to us given both her talent and how prolific she is. As this set at Bushwick’s The Wick demonstrated, she is a singular improviser who in a single set can cut across generations and genres. For this set, Halvorson chose to go the all-covers route, including songs by Ornette Coleman, Oliver Nelson, the bassist Chris Lightcap, and a host of other U.S. and international leading lights of jazz and guitar music. To their credit, Buzzo’s metal-minded audience understood what was going on, giving Halvorson her due. She deserves all that and more.

I recorded this set with a simplistic onstage rig of two small Countryman omnidirectional microphones split two and a half feet apart. While there is some ambient noise evident at points, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Phish: July 12, 2014 Randall’s Island – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

July 13, 2014

Phish represents a lot of things that people don’t understand. Tell those who listen to almost all of the other bands I listen to that you’re going to a Phish show, and expect rolled eyes and chuckles. At one time, Phish meant to its fans the continuation of the promise of The Grateful Dead and the beautiful movement they created; that gave way, in short order, to Phish being a juggernaut in its own right. If anything, the band’s very stylistic and and generational dissimilarity to the Dead is a key source of lament for its detractors. For others, so is the fact that they play really long songs, some of which have wincingly twee lyrical concepts. These things, I’ll concede.

Some people will never be convinced, but if you’re in the mood to be, you could do worse than starting with this excellent Village Voice blog post. Maybe a Phish show is a “you have to be there” kind of thing, but I’d like not to think so. Their career was, after all, built in part by people sharing live tapes. If you listen to this recording, in particular the emotional rollercoaster of a kickoff to the second set from “Punch You In the Eye” into “Carini”, followed by an especially cosmic rendition of “Ghost”, you might get an inkling of what this is all about when its firing on all cylinders. What’s on offer is neither party music nor music school pyrotechnics nor straight ahead rock n’ roll, but some combination of all three, a high wire act of a journey for its audience that only masters of their craft could create. One can’t ignore, too, the skills of Phish’s crew, especially veteran light man Chris Kuroda, who makes Phish’s shows as visually stunning as anything in the music business, and the entire FOH sound crew, who accomplished the difficult feat of making a windy, open-field outdoor venue sound flawless.

I haven’t attended a huge number of shows myself (this was the first I taped since 1999, though I’ve attended others since then), so, as was commented on our post of last night’s show, I won’t allow myself standing to say whether this was a “great” Phish show. But it was a reminder of the many things this band has done so right. Haters might ask themselves what they have against a band who created a community this large and this durable organically, turning their hard work into something commercially successful and culturally relevant, even if not to the mainstream. “Phish 3.0″ at this point has a little something for everybody, community-wise, continuing to grow its fan base from the grizzled vets to the kids in their early 20s getting into their groove for the first time. For us tapers, seeing the band at this point is part ritual, part nostalgia trip. Most people are aware that they sell very good soundboard recordings on their site, meaning what we’re doing doesn’t have the same relevance, maybe, that it did before. But the mere act of recording the band is, for us, our connection to the community and to a band that for many of us was the one that brought us into the hobby to begin with. We share the recordings not only because they represent our own personal takes on the show, but out of tradition, community, and the original spirit that made this band what it is today.

I recorded this set from the same position nyctaper used for last night’s recording, forward of the board and dead center. Tonight’s recording was made with Schoeps MK4V cardiod microphones and the warm Aerco custom preamp. The crowd was generally respectful around us, meaning the only occasional flaws are gusts of wind that were stronger than those experienced last night. Enjoy!

Night Beats: July 2, 2014 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set

Seattle garage rockers Night Beats helmed a stacked bill this night at Baby’s All Right that also featured Frankie Rose’s new project Beverly (that recording to be posted soon pending band approval), Hamish Kilgour’s latest project Roya, and Brooklyn garage punks LODRO. Night Beats had been teasing new songs for a while (including our last meet up with them at Glasslands) and we’ve finally gotten to see the final versions in the form of the songs on their record Sonic Bloom. Much of that material was on display on this night, but the Beats jumped around some, playing some more new ones, plus songs from their self-titled debut LP. Of note from that album in particular were a fiery “Puppet On A String” and the jammed-out set closer “The Other Side”, but the real fun came in hearing new songs like “Dewayne’s Drone” and “Useless Game” come to life. The Beats were joined after the show by the Black Lips on the turntables, and returned the favor the following night when they opened for the Lips at the lame corporate marketing opportunity House of Vans.

This set was recorded by Baby’s All Right head of production Devin Foley using the house multitrack system, whose files I produced and mixed down. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Sharon Van Etten: October 9, 2010 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set [From the archives]

NYCTaper’s love affair with Sharon Van Etten has been long, going back all the way to a Piano’s performance back in summer of 2008. In the intervening six years, Van Etten has transformed from the prodigious but slightly awkward performer we saw then into a commercial success and confident headliner of large venues, culminating as of late with NYC shows headlining Bowery Ballroom (our recording here) and Music Hall of Williamsburg. This pristine soundboard recording from the Mercury Lounge in 2010, which we unearthed recently, finds Van Etten charging ahead with the release of her breakthrough album, Epic, which would set the stage for the career-defining Tramp and everything that has come since. Sharon had only recently begun playing with a full band (the first such show which we captured), and this show reflects the transition, with a mix of full-band and solo material. We have already shared the Epic release show from the night before at Rock Shop; now you can check out Van Etten’s follow-up to that from Mercury, where Kyp Malone opened and Cat Martino once again gave the assist on vocals for half the set. This show provides an interesting midpoint between Sharon’s early innocence and future poise; the performance is resolute even if her crowd banter reveals how young she still is as an artist. While the longer Rock Shop recording, which adds audience microphones to the soundboard mix, is arguably the one to have of the two, one can never have enough Sharon. You can stream and download the entire set via the links below.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood: June 8, 2014 Mountain Jam X (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[Images from the Mountain Jam Website]

While the latest breakup/hiatus of the always-volatile Black Crowes may have chagrinned the band’s fans, one thing it brought back to the forefront were the separate efforts of its dynamic duo, the brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, who are each out on the road supporting their own material. For his part, Chris seemed more than comfortable as the sole bandleader with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood here at Mountain Jam. If I’m being honest, his distinct voice has always been what I saw as the Crowes’ secret sauce, distinguishing them from other retro-minded acts, and Robinson’s own songs stood up well next to he and his brother’s combined catalog. Robinson also couldn’t resist sharing a little Crowes goodness, throwing “I Ain’t Hiding” into the mix along with a great cover of Dylan’s “Crash On the Levee (Down In the Flood)”. The mellow vibes laid down on this final day of the Jam nicely complemented the sounds to come from Sean Ono Lennon’s the GOASTT (that recording here), Lucius (that one here), and of course, the festival’s ultimate headliner, the Allman Brothers.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones into a nice and warm custom Aerco preamp. Though there are the usual minor issues caused by wind and distance, the sound quality is overall excellent. Enjoy!

[Photo from the Mountain Jam website]

We sang the praises of Jonathan Wilson after seeing him at Bowery Ballroom earlier this year, and we are very pleased to have had the chance to catch him again so soon at this year’s Mountain Jam. Jonathan was an ideal addition to the Mountain Jam lineup, serving up five songs of his breezy Southern California-inflected rock n’ roll to a welcoming crowd lolling in the midday sun. This set jumped around Wilson’s deep catalog, giving us only one track from his latest, Fanfare, hanging closer to his 2011 effort, Gentle Spirit. My personal highlight was a number off that record, the song “Valley of the Silver Moon”, which Wilson performed with festival organizer and jam partner du jour Warren Haynes. The twelve-minute song gave Wilson, Haynes and the band plenty of time show off their guitar skills, and set the tone for the rest of a beautiful, relaxing day of music.

I recorded this set with MBHO microphones from the “taping area” near the soundboard. As with other recordings from this day, there is a bit of phasing due to wind, but Jonathan’s vocals, and the music, otherwise come through loud and clear. Enjoy!

The Antlers: June 17, 2014 Rough Trade NYC – FLAC/MP3/Full Set Streaming

June 18, 2014
By


the-antlers-10
[Photos by Amanda M. Hatfield for BrooklynVegan]

There are many good things to be said about The Antlers, one of the most consistent and interesting bands to arise out of the Brooklyn scene in the past six years, but what’s most inspiring about them is how little they seem to care what others are doing. They’ve never been part of any kind of “-wave”; they’ve never even really found clear company among stylistically similar bands. If there were aspects of their sound that drew inspiration from elsewhere, the whole was something else entirely, animated by Peter Silberman’s unique vocal turns and the group’s collective faith in their listeners. Most bands in late-aughts Brooklyn wouldn’t have put out a record like the band’s debut, Hospice, a concept record from another time whose material was dark and whose sound was hardly going to bring out the tubthumpers who like to hit up Terminal 5 on Friday nights. The Antlers followed that up with Burst Apart, to date the closest thing they’ve done to a commercial record, even if it was hardly humpbacking a trend, either.

On this Tuesday night, the band showed up at the post-industrial chic and great-sounding back room venue at Rough Trade NYC and played us Familiars, the album they’d released that very day. Among the hardcore fans who showed up — who earned their tickets by buying the vinyl — there couldn’t have been a better way to be introduced to it. That whisper-quiet crowd got to hear these songs in their true voice, played by a band whose facility with the songs was hard-earned in the studio. Familiars won’t be everyone’s bag — even compared to the previous efforts, it’s a delicate effort that rewards patience — but for those who respect the band’s love of texture, of gorgeous songs that soar only when they really need to, it’s a classic. The songs unfolded like dreamscapes, rarely peaking until three or four minutes in, overlaid with Silberman’s literary, evocative lyrics. There are a good bit of horns on offer this time around, which I wouldn’t trust in less-sure hands, but The Antlers seem to have taken a page from Dan Bejar in that regard, using them at just the right moment. If I’m partial to any of the new songs as yet, it’d be the smooth-flowing “Director”, which feels like the product of several different phases of the band’s work all at once, and relies on elegiac guitar chords to move it forward.

It was a bit funny to hear Silberman, not yet out of his 20s, to say the band was “feeling the years”, but in an odd way it’s true. The Antlers aren’t the baby band we first witnessed back in early 2008; nor are they one of many flashes in the pan that have come since. The Antlers are a mature, established Brooklyn band, one that has rewarded their experience with an album of similar grace and maturity. See them throughout the U.S., Europe and the UK this summer and fall as they tour Familiars – this is a live experience you don’t want to miss.

I recorded this set with a flawless soundboard feed of the mix created by the band’s touring engineer Dan Seiders, together with Schoeps MK4V microphones. The sound quality reflects Seiders’ years of experience mixing the band and the flawless nature of the room, making for a live album quality experience. Enjoy!

Tedeschi Trucks Band: June 7, 2014 Mountain Jam X (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Tedeschi-Trucks-Band
[band promotional photo]

Rock n’ roll has had its share of power couples over the years, but the combination of the blues singer Susan Tedeschi and the legendary slide guitarist Derek Trucks was a formidable one indeed.  Tedeschi Trucks Band has been active for the better part of this decade, giving a more mature perspective on the sounds that made each of these musicians famous. On this crystal clear Mountain Jam night, TTB rolled in as an eleven-piece and played a soaring 90 minutes of blues-inflected rock that gave its signature members plenty of room to show off their chops. We got some especially deep jamming during “Bound for Glory” and “The Storm”, the latter of which reminded us that we were really, really happy to be bone-dry at a Mountain Jam for once. With Gov’t Mule (that recording here) coming up next, by the time TTB left the stage the night was still young, but we had already had our hair blown back.

I recorded this set with MBHO microphones from the “taping area” near the soundboard. While the effects of occasional wind and distance can be heard at times, the MBHOs do an excellent job of adding vocal clarity and presence that compensates for those issues, and the Aerco preamp adds warmth to the sound of these microphones. Enjoy!
