NYCTaper Upcoming Schedule: The Hope of Spring

February 12, 2011


After a heavy month of January which saw our continued capture of some excellent concerts, we ended the month with our first live streaming show — hopefully the first of many to come. Recently there have been a bulk of new announced shows, so its time to update the schedule. What a list. I hope we can do it all!

[Below is the updated schedule. We expect to attend and record these events. However, circumstances will prevent some of these from being done, and others will be added in the meantime.]

If you want nyctaper to record your band, a band you represent, a show you’re promoting, or even your favorite band in the world, get me on the list and make sure everyone who needs to approve of the recording gives permission. Also, remember I’m doing this all for free — the recordings, the post-production, the reviews, the links, etc. — so treat me fairly.

Moondoggies: January 30, 2011 The Rock Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

February 4, 2011

While the critically easy way to approach The Moondoggies is to describe them as another in the line of Northwest “beardo” bands (i.e. Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses), their high-energy show at The Rock Shop on Sunday demonstrated their versatility and unwillingness to be pigeonholed. As the band opened with one of their oldest songs “Keep Her On The Line”, the folk rock strumming was forefront, but as the set progressed, the variety of styles and influences were diverse. “Its A Shame” owes a debt to Tonight’s The Night-era Neil Young, while “Black Shoe” (streaming below) echoes early Wilco, and “Ain’t No Lord” could be performed by Gary Louris. Perhaps acknowledging the granddaddies of the entire genre, Moondoggies closed the set with a cover of the Byrds version of the Dylan classic “You Ain’t Going Nowhere” (also streaming below). The Moondoggies new album Tidelands showcases their unique take on these various genres and establishes an identity for this superb band, and like their predecessors, their growth will only yield greater results.

I recorded this set with the DPA’s at the front of the board and mixed it with a soundboard feed. Unfortunately, for some reason the soundboard has a persistent whine/hum that rendered it unusable. As a result, this recording is the straight audience capture. There is some crowd chatter, but overall its still an excellent recording. Enjoy!
