Wavves: June 24, 2010 Northside Festival, Knitting Factory – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Sweaty bodies were flying all over the place at the Knitting Factory as Wavves headlined the official kickoff show of the 2010 Northside Festival.  Wavves may have been on the bill, and frontman Nathan Williams was certainly there, but otherwise, this was a very different band than the the duo I recorded at the Bowery Ballroom last year, when Nathan came onstage in a cast, chastened after a string of unfortunate incidents and bad press (which, if one judges by Brooklynvegan commenters, earned the man a lot of haters) – and blew the doors off the place in spite of it.  Now, Williams is back with new songs, and more importantly, a new rhythm section consisting of bassist Stephen Pope and drummer Billy Hayes, formerly known as Jay Reatard’s (RIP) band.  The new band does wonders for Wavves, for one thing, Wavves is now, in fact, a full actual band.  It may be party music, fine – but it’s good party music now.  Hayes keeps things lively in between songs with what seems to be the assumed mantle of stage banter duties, and Williams seems grateful not to have the burden.  As for the band’s new songs, from the forthcoming King of the Beach (out August 3rd), in the live setting, the departure is less dramatic than the well-mixed, lighter-feeling and less home-demo sounding songs that have been released to the Internet so far, but they are still a clear step forward.  Tonight we heard several forthcoming examples of what King of the Beach will have to offer, including the first single, “Post Acid,” “King of the Beach,” and “Green Eyes”.  Northside has stepped up its game even further and has the fans pumped – we can’t wait for the next few nights (and days) of shows.

I recorded this set with a stereo soundboard feed and Schoeps CMC641 microphones eight feet up.  The result is a nicely balanced and spot-on rendition of the night.  Enjoy!

Emanuel and the Fear: June 21, 2010 Knitting Factory – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Entire Show

Emanuel and The Fear continue to expand their horizons and win over new fans with a multi-faceted sound that references classical music, bluesy barroom rock, folk, and indie pop.  On this Monday night at the Knitting Factory, the band was hosted by the Onion A/V Club for a showcase that featured The Silent League and NYCTaper pals Dinosaur Feathers. Since we last saw the band, they have debuted their new full length album Listen, which delivers on the promise of their lauded first EP.  This set gave ample coverage to the many different styles this 11-member band is capable of, including a new solo number by Emanuel Ayvas called “Drinking Song,” as well as many of the standouts from the 19-track Listen.  Thanks to Paper Garden Records for hosting us at this event.

I recorded this set with a four-microphone rig that perfectly captured both the room and the direct sound from the PA system.  You can stream the entire show below, and the files have been properly tagged for importing into iTunes or your favorite music player.  Enjoy!

Melvins: June 18, 2010 and May 15, 2009 Webster Hall – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Melvins
[At the May 2009 Webster Hall show.  This photo courtesy of Ryan Muir]

Melvins have now been at it for more than 25 years.  In that time, they inspired many rock legends in the Seattle/Pacific NW scene, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana among them, and have consistently made vital music that rarely if ever crossed paths with the mainstream.  Originally a trio, in recent years they have come out with an awe-inspiring two-drummer attack featuring original drummer Dale Crover and Coady Willis that only magnifies their sludgy personification of the Seattle sound.  The crowd and performance at both of these fantastic shows from Webster Hall – the earlier being one of their mammoth 25th anniversary shows from last year, the more recent one being a shorter set opening for metal gods Isis, who are on their final run before breaking up – spoke to the authenticity of this act.  For once, I attended a Friday night show where every fan stood at rapt attention as this foursome demolished ears and melted faces, including sharing several new songs from their latest, The Bride Screamed Murder.

Of the May 15, 2009 set, Johnny Fried Chicken Boy had this to say:

“This was one of several “25th anniversary” gigs the Melvins performed in the spring of ‘09 that included the album ‘Houdini‘ played in its entirety.  Technically, Buzz “King Buzzo” Osborne has been fronting the band under that moniker a little longer, but who’s counting?  I hadn’t seen the band since ‘97 and am I glad I pulled the trigger on getting tickets.  It was one of those shows that remind you that you’re alive; the energy was phenomenal and spilled over into the moderate pit that broke out.  Having forgotten how amazing these guys can be in a live setting, it brought back memories of this old man’s youth.  They opened with a short set of material from the ‘Mangled Demos from 1983‘ disc that had their first drummer, Mike Dillard, pounding the skins and current, long-time drummer, Dale Crover, on bass.  Trevor Dunn came out later to handle the low-end duties after Dale switched to the drums.  I’ve been to a lot of concerts but this was definitely in my top three of loudest shows I’d seen and I don’t have the memory or time to scratch my head remembering the other two.  It was so loud my clothes were vibrating, as were the keys and loose change in my pockets.  It was so loud my friend had to go sit down because she was getting nauseous.”

These shows were recorded in very different ways.  I recorded the June 2010 set with the DPA microphones mounted to an articulated arm clamped to the balcony, while Johnny recorded the May 2009 set using a lean and mean mobile rig.

Since some people may ask, please note that we were not permitted to record Isis.  Their management made it very clear that the band does not allow audio taping of any kind, and we respect their wishes.  We wish Isis the best in their final shows and future endeavors.

[Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood at the Terminal 5 show in 2008. Photo courtesy of One Louder Photo]

I have always been a little surprised by the mutual respect and admiration shown between the thoroughly Alabama-bred Drive-By Truckers and the fans of the NYC area.   Unfortunately, the years of suspicion and stereotypes between the South – particularly the deep South – and NYC aren’t totally past tense, even in an age when you can actually get a decent biscuit and sawmill gravy within the five boroughs.  But like certain other of the South’s best exports, New Yorkers seem to get the Truckers, partly because their music acknowledges and, in the best Southern tradition, celebrates many of their homeland’s contradictions and frustrations.  On April Fool’s Day the Truckers opted not to offer up any jokes or fake-outs, but drilled through a powerful set that showcased many songs from their brand-new The Big To-Do and a survey of their earlier classics like the heavy-hitters toward the end of the set, “Hell No, I Ain’t Happy,” “Lookout Mountain” and “Let There Be Rock”.  Despite Webster Hall’s “curfew” in order to start the venue’s dance party, the band played for over two hours with few breaks in between songs.  NYC may be a long way from Muscle Shoals, but tonight, everyone fell under the sway of this timeless act’s Southern charm.

I recorded this set with a four-microphone rig clamped to the balcony immediately to the right of the soundboard cage, with the two sets of mics at varied heights to capture both direct and ambient sound.   I am extremely happy with the results, and hope you are, too!  Enjoy!

We Were Promised Jetpacks: February 15, 2010 Knitting Factory – FLAC and MP3 Downloads

A friend recommended to me months ago that I check out We Were Promised Jetpacks when they were opening for The Twilight Sad on their tour last year.  Sadly, I missed that show, but in between, these Scotsmen have garnered some major buzz.  After what by all accounts was a killer performance at Bowery Ballroom, the band headed out to Brooklyn and the lovely new(-ish) Knitting Factory to do it all over again.   In a positive way, WWPJ strike me as a bit of a younger, hungrier, Scottish version of U2, with a style that trends heavily toward the room-shaking rock anthem, all soaring vocals and approachable chords.   Nonetheless, WWPJ aren’t acting the part of mega-rock stars just yet, showing great humility as well as appreciation for their fans, who pumped their fists and sang along to almost every song.   I wouldn’t be surprised if the next time these guys came through, they were the opening slot at MSG for you-know-who…. and deservedly so.

I recorded this set from the same equipment and position as the Bad Veins recording – DPA microphones on a pole at the soundboard and a top-notch stereo soundboard feed provided by Melanie of Knitting Factory.  The sound quality is excellent.  Enjoy!

Mission of Burma: January 30, 2010 Bowery Ballroom – Flac and MP3 Downloads

The second of Mission of Burma’s two nights at Bowery was covered for nyctaper by Acidjack. Our recording of the first night is [here].

Acidjack reports:
“I have to admit that this was my first time seeing Mission of Burma, which is one of those concert-going omissions that I should be embarrassed about. My first experience, with them playing a second night to a packed Bowery Ballroom, was a great one. It is truly an honor to see bands continue to produce at such a high level during the second phase of their careers. Unlike some bands whose raison d’etre for their career revivals seems to have more to do with credit card and mortgage balances than artistic vitality (I’ll avoid naming names), Mission of Burma prove that they still have something to say. The sound, thanks to the excellent work of master production wizard Bob Weston and the Bowery sound team, was excellent, and this recording, from the same spot as last night’s show with similar equipment, reflects that. Enjoy!”

Acidjack reports:
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists came out to play on a cold Sunday night, sort of for no reason. They aren’t on tour, and they don’t have a new album out (as they pointed out). Luckily, nobody told them this might not be a proposition for a packed house. In fact, Bowery was sold out and very, very full with the type of fans that make Sunday night shows among my favorites. Much like the Dirty Projectors’ Sunday night tour closer at Bowery that we featured on the site earlier this week, this show brought out fans who came to enjoy the music, knew the songs, and showed the band enthusiasm, friendliness and respect. Leo and the band returned the favor, giving an approximately 90 minute set (comprising, as you will see, a ton of songs, 23 to be exact) that never sagged. The band debuted a number of new (and “new new”) songs as well as older classics and covers. Leo proves that three-chord punk music doesn’t have to be stupid or lo-fi — his stage banter and lyrics are witty and intelligent, and his guitar tuning breaks (due to the last minute substitution of a finicky guitar) this night were frequent. Younger bands take note: Sometimes, giving something more than a sloppily-tuned 40 minute set – even when your songs are all in the 3-4 minute range – can be pretty cool.

I recorded this set from a pole clamped to the left side of the soundboard cage, with the mics about 8′ from the floor with the DPA 4021s. The sound quality is excellent.

Thanks to Ted Leo, Touch and Go Records, and the Bowery Ballroom for allowing the recording, and Kevin and the rest of the Bowery team for their assistance.”

Dirty Projectors: November 22, 2009 Bowery – Flac and MP3 Downloads

Acidjack reports:
“The Dirty Projectors are the band you’d get if some Ivy League music majors decided to convert their acappella group into a rock band. Or perhaps, they are, almost, the band we *did* get. If you don’t own Bitte Orca, their excellent album from this year, go out and buy it now, before you don’t own the album that will top all of this year’s “best of” lists.

Experiencing this band live, it is even more striking just how *musical* this band is. Quite frankly, I lack the music theory vocabulary to explain what it is they’re doing up there, but the complexity in their compositions – from the vocal harmonies to the song structures – is evident to even the untutored ear. This night, closing out an almost weeklong run in their home town, saw the Projectors in fine form, playing a nearly 90 minute set (including an acoustic set) that closed out with special guest star David Byrne, as well as an appearance by The Roots. Not since Kid A has a band moved rock music this far forward this quickly, and, like Kid A, challenged the most basic notions about what “rock” music is – and could be.

I recorded this set in the center with my new DPA 4021s. Thanks to the combination of the band’s extremely talented sound engineers, the respectful crowd, and the top-flight equipment, the sound is excellent. Enjoy!”

The Dinosaur Jr. set opening for Sonic Youth last week at Terminal 5 was a condensed version of the band’s current show. After opening with a few classic nuggets, the band then performed several songs from the excellent new album Farm, before closing with “Freak Scene” and another early-era shredder, in this case “Gargoyle”. We expect the set to be fleshed out for the two shows that Dinosaur Jr. will play in NYC next month — January 16 at Bowery Ballroom and January 17 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (we’ll be there).

Acidjack recorded this set from the same location at the Sonic Youth recording and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Titus Andronicus: November 5, 2009 Masonic Temple – Flac and MP3 Downloads

As the opening band at F*cked Up’s performance of The Chemistry of Common Life, Titus Andronicus performed their first set of Titus material since in the infamous appearance at the Vice Magazine Halloween Party.

Radio Flyer reviewed their set:

Fitting with their slightly cleaned-up appearance, Titus Andronicus have polished up their sound. Don’t think that takes off the edge, though. They are loud and fast and make me want to move to Ireland and go to a pub with people I will come to call “the lads” every night just so that we can stumble home shouting drunken renditions of every Titus Andronicus song we know. But Titus Andronicus has always been a technically sophisticated band and now their guitar-work can really shine. They’ve rearranged their songs to include some enormous, glittering walls of sound, some stunning embellishing riffs and some crazy, crazy noise. They are more loud and cool and fun than ever.

Acidjack recorded this set with a mobile rig from the middle of the floor of this venue of subpar sound. The recording is raw and somewhat boomy, but it sounds like it was — a punk show. Enjoy!
