Sunwatchers: December 9, 2018 Baby’s All Right

Plenty of new Sunwatchers action out there for the years old and new. First up there’s the killer collab with Eugene Chadbourne, 3 Characters, out on Amish Records last year. The gang cover a bunch of Minutemen tunes on the first disc, followed by some Doug Sahm and Henry Flynt tunes on the second. It’s a trip! Then there’s Sunwatchers’ third LP, Illegal Moves, which is gonna blow some minds—just check out that cover! We’ve heard many of the new tunes live this past year and there’s no doubt this is going to be stratospheric.

Speaking of seeing Sunwatchers live, here’s a nice set from last month at Baby’s All Right. The foursome break out a still-untitled new tune along with previewing some tracks from Illegal Moves.

I recorded this with the MBHO omniderectional mics on stage, combined with a board feed from the Baby’s crew. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Headroom: December 9, 2018 Baby’s All Right

I keep thinking about headspace and headroom, in the context of Headroom, a band that opens both inward and outward. Kryssi Battalene splits her time churning out shoegazey riffs for the immeasurable Mountain Movers, Headroom being her side gig that distills her soloing into the main event. In 2017 she put out Head in the Clouds, a particularly spaced-out affair that’s as soaring in its scope as her other band. With Movers’ Rick Omonte on bass and Ross Menze on drums, Headroom doesn’t stray too far from the mold, blowing up new spaces to get lost in. Last month we finally got to see Headroom in action at Baby’s All Right, where the band played three tracks from Head in the Clouds, plus the new “Skyliner.” I don’t think I’m the only person in attendance who suggested Headroom visit us more often.

I recorded this set with a pair of MBHO omnidirectional mics onstage combined with a board feed from the Baby’s crew. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Ryley Walker: December 14, 2018 Baby’s All Right

December 16, 2018
By

Ryley Walker has become something of a Renaissance man in 2018, with his highly-lauded album Deafman Glance, a full-album cover of an unreleased Dave Matthews Band LP, his endlessly entertaining Twitter account, and an ongoing series of Vice articles where Ryley’s just being Ryley. Listen to some of his between song banter and it’s clear Walker loves music and knows how to engage an audience. Yet for all his extracurricular antics, the tunes are nothing if not sincere.

Somewhat surprisingly given it’s high level of publicity, Walker and band are not touring Dave Matthews tunes, but instead continue touring this year’s excellent Deafman Glance—Walker’s best album yet. Especially great here is their rendition of “Spoil With the Rest” and a pair of tunes with trumpeter Jaimie Branch, “22 Days” and “Funny Thing She Said.”

I recorded this with a pair of MBHO cardioid mics on stage in stereo DIN configuration, combined with a soundboard feed courtesy of the Baby’s crew, Dan and Jesse. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Big Ups: September 13, 2016 Baby’s All Right

Big Ups

Big Ups are a band that I keep coming back to, not only because they’re the current standard-bearers of American post-hardcore but also because they’re a vital part of the NYC/Brooklyn music scene. We’ve seen them on bills with legacy acts before, but sharing a bill with Girls Against Boys is perhaps the most appropriate of all for Big Ups, who reference the eighties and nineties DC/Dischord scene that birthed GVSB. Big Ups are a couple decades removed from that era but they’re keeping the spirit alive with their tight craft. Their latest album is Before a Million Universes on Exploding in Sound—one of best labels out there for great young bands; and whether you’re a veteran of the nineties or a younger listener, it’s more than worth your twelve bucks to grab a copy of that limited vinyl.

Acidjack and I recorded this set from the stage lip combined with a board feed and it’s pretty outstanding. You know what to do!

Girls Against Boys: September 13, 2016 Baby’s All Right

Girls Against Boys

Twenty years ago, in 1996, I turned fifteen. Girls Against Boys were touring their third Touch & Go record, House of GVSB, and were scheduled to play Tramps a little less than a month after my birthday. I somehow scraped together $45, scammed a ride to (Nobody Beats) The Wiz, and bought a simple Aiwa walkman with a record function and a clip-on mono microphone, all in order to document my favorite band.

If you were born anytime after House of GVSB was released, you might not have heard of Tramps or The Wiz; Touch & Go has mostly folded; and it’s possible you’ve never held a walkman. But fortunately, in a limited capacity, Girls Against Boys persist. While the band certainly doesn’t play as much as they used to, we got a tour in 2013 (with David Yow contributing some vocals) and even some new music: The Ghost List sounds incredibly vital for any band, much less one that hadn’t released new music in eleven years. In 2014, three-fourths of GVSB reactivated their 80’s Dischord band Soulside and played a couple gigs at Saint Vitus in support of their reissued final album, Trigger. Lucky DC-ers even got a brief New Wet Kojak gig at the Black Cat. Soulside played some more shows last fall in Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

But back to Girls Against Boys: Last Tuesday the band played their first show since that 2013 tour, a warmup gig in anticipation of their appearance at Riot Fest Chicago. The set starts off with one from 2002’s Jade Tree LP, You Can’t Fight What You Can’t See; but aside from “Basstation” and “Let’s Get Killed” (off The Ghost List), it’s a lengthy tour of the band’s 90’s Touch & Go output, featuring their most well-known material from Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby, Cruise Yourself, and House of GVSB. For the hardcore fans, there’s the deep cut “Distracted” which appeared on the “Disco Six Six Six” single, and was rarely outed back in the day. The crowd packed into Baby’s small, sweaty, and still partially under construction room for what was to be one of the longer GVSB shows I’ve ever seen. The band were even called back for a second encore of “Rockets Are Red” after the house music had gone on, surely a rare occurrence these days. Aside from some rusty bits here and there and some jokes about their age, I’d swear we were transported back to that ’96 tour.

Girls Against Boys have another festival appearance scheduled at the Sound on Sound Festival in Austin, November 5th. I have it on good authority there are plans for another Brooklyn warmup gig beforehand, so keep on a lookout for that.

Update: GVSB will be playing Saint Vitus on November 3rd with the always great SAVAK. Tickets available here.

I recorded this set—with a massive assist from Acidjack who manned the deck while I rocked out—with a pair of mics on stage combined with a board feed from Baby’s FOH, Devin. It slays.

Martin Courtney: February 13, 2016 Baby’s All Right

March 8, 2016

There’s much love for the band Real Estate both at this site and in NYC in general, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s a fan. With the detractors, it seems that what bugs them the most is that Real Estate make things too easy — their music seems to positively roll forth from them in a smooth wave, with breezy melodies and approachable hooks, vocals wafting in a comfortable haze. That voice comes from one Martin Courtney, who rolled out a solo effort, Many Moons, last year. It’s what you hope for in a solo album — a scaled-back version of a Real Estate album in some ways, a much more personal, intimate album in others. If you don’t like Real Estate, well, I don’t know what you to tell you, because Courtney doesn’t abandon the band’s formula so much as peel back a few layers. “You will not find me wasting my energy” begins one couplet on the album’s opener “Awake,” and you get the sense with this record that it’s not a lack of effort by any means, but it is a great example of not trying too hard.

Courtney hit that sweet spot at this recent Baby’s All Right show, a venue which at this point feels like a second home for a certain caste of Brooklyn music regulars. This performance, falling near the end of the tour, had the mellow, easy feel of a weekend show before a friendly crowd. We got to hear the entire album, highlighted by the single “Airport Bar,” and the kickoff track “Northern Highway.” Of course, it wouldn’t have been a show by a Real Estate band member without some crucial covers, and Courtney nailed both the placid “Harvest Moon” and Echo and the Bunnymen’s “The Killing Moon” before the grand finale, with opener EZTV joining the headliners for a Feelies cover, “On the Roof,” from their second album The Good Earth. It was a night for the familiar, a night for the good, and one for a longtime friend to share with the people who were with him from the beginning.

The engineer Jason Kelly of Baby’s All Right recorded and mixed this set. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Disappears: February 20, 2016 Baby’s All Right (incl. complete set of David Bowie’s “Low”)

February 21, 2016
By

IMG_1624

Let’s get this out of the way: this is not some thrown-together “tribute”; Disappears had this idea long before Bowie’s recent passing. You can hear the evidence on their 2015 live LP, in fact (which you can still find if you look), which captures their full performances at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art as part of a “Bowie Changes” series of events. Given what’s happened since, this Brooklyn redux of that memorable night took on new meaning, and showed us so much of what to appreciate about live rock music, and Bowie, who was one of the best.

Baby’s All Right was its typical self on Saturday night, a convivial hub for Williamsburg partiers and people of good musical taste. Disappears’ crowd was one of the better ones, composed mainly of the band’s regulars, scenesters and Bowie diehards interested in hearing the band’s take. Disappears’ material usually draws more comparisons to Joy Division and the Fall than the Thin White Duke, but only if you forget that Bowie had his own krautrock streak, evidenced on Station to Station as well as Low itself, a dissonant, dark piece of work that added to Bowie’s mystique as a musical chameleon whose taste rarely missed.

Before any Bowie, of course, Disappears had a full set for us of their own material, kicking off with the propulsive “Joa” followed by “Another Thought” and “I/O,” also from last year’s excellent Irreal, they decided to play some new material. Of these, my favorite might be “Silencing,” a mid-tempo meditation that continues in Irreal’s more subdued, textured vein but goes further down that path. Brian Case and bandmates Damon Carruesco, Jonathan van Herik, and Noah Leger (I’ve said this before, but damn can this guy drum) not only form one of the tightest units in music today, but they carry themselves with an understated poise that you wish you saw more often. Disappears is a band best seen from the front row, where you can watch both Case’s kinetic vocal delivery and get the full effect of the hammering of the drums and slink of the bass, urging on the dual guitars. This recording was made from onstage, making it about the closest thing to that experience.

Of course, everyone wants to know about the Bowie set. There are umpteen “tributes” going on these days, many of them hastily arranged for a quick buck and/or nostalgia jolt, and some of the highest-profile events to date have either reeked of gimmickry or have simply fallen flat. Disappears’ move was not only refreshing because it actually wasn’t a “response” to the artist’s passing, but because it took the most direct route: playing a Bowie album with an obvious relationship to Disappears’ vision. It’s the best kind of tribute, one that honored Bowie by letting his music, alongside Disappears’ own, speak for itself.

Most striking about Low as a live set is how distinct the album is to the LP format, with a clear side A of somewhat more conventional rock tracks followed by the dramatic shift of the Eno-driven side B, a languid, ambient affair that felt much farther afield than the rest of the set. That Disappears not only held our attention, but managed to recreate this album live without many of the electronics that defined the album, testifies to their skill as a band. Similarly, side B isn’t exactly a party-rock record, but for this crowd, “Warszawa” and “Art Decade” weren’t going to clear the room; the crowd tightened in, holding on for the surge of “Weeping Wall,” whose operatic sweep might’ve made you think, had you closed your eyes, that it was Godspeed You! Black Emperor up there making noise with its gaggle of musicians, not four guys. “Subterraneans” made for a subdued ending after that obvious climax, but once again, Disappears gave it the attention it deserved, straight through to the end.

While this Low performance won’t be the only one of the tour, there are only a few others scheduled, interspersed among the band’s regular tour schedule. You can catch the band Monday in Philly, and Tuesday in Pittsburgh (where they’ll do Low again).

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK22 open cardiod microphones onstage for an expansive, up front sound, combined with a soundboard feed of Disappears’ FOH Jason Balla’s mix, with assistance from Harrison Fore of Baby’s in setting it up. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Superchunk: December 3, 2015 Baby’s All Right

December 6, 2015

Superchunk spawned one of the most revered independent labels, revitalized the music scene of two entire towns, and continue to inspire men and women alike to pogo at the stage lip singing every word. Few bands can claim those achievements, but even fewer can claim to have not only kept, but expanded their fans’ loyalty since the early 1990s. Mac McCaughan may well be one of his generation’s few ageless indie stars, as unabashedly confessional, athletic and compelling onstage as he was when he was in his twenties. What separates his songs from those of lesser peers is that those lyrics aren’t just reflections of youthful naiveté — they just say what they need to in the most direct, compelling way. It hurts none that behind Mac is a crack band (sans, sadly, Laura Ballance these days) that has only gotten better over the years; if many drummers are hitting the kit better than Jon Wurster at any age, they ought to count themselves lucky. And that doesn’t even begin to touch the humor of Jim Wilbur (who’s a pretty darn good player, too).

The band came into Baby’s All Right on this Thursday to follow up a performance the night before at Ground Control Touring’s 15th Anniversary, meaning they weren’t here to flog a new record or for any purpose other than to remind their fans exactly why they stick around. They rewarded us with a set that drew from all over their catalog, treating 2013’s I Hate Music and their 1990s canon with equal reverence. The sold out crowd gave as good as they got in terms of energy, as the people in the front didn’t stop moving, or singing, the entire time. The band may have joked before “The Popular Music” (from Indoor Living, 1997) about how they would sit around in front of a Britney Spears poster in their practice room and wonder if a new song they were writing would “make them popular” (Mac’s reply — it didn’t) but the reality is that, in the longer run, their efforts worked. Sometimes it’s quality, and not quantity of “popularity” that counts, and Superchunk has the former in abundance. For a certain group of people, Superchunk were a foundational band, in the same way other giants of the era like Pavement (or further toward the mainstream, Nirvana) inspired countless stints as independent radio DJs, memberships in variously-successful bands, and LP/CD collections that burden many of us to this day. In 2013, we called them “the best working band in America today,” and noted that they “don’t have a bad song in their catalog,” and those sentiments remain true to this day.

To be honest, I’m not really sure if they haven’t played the first encore, “The Breadman” single in more than 20 years as claimed, but I’m not going to be that guy who disputes the band on the Internet (according to said Internet, this was only the second time it’s ever been played). I will say that “Hyper Enough,” still rings true — rocking this night with an energy that belied its twenty years in the rotation, and a song whose central premise still rings true of Mac now as when he wrote it. And “Throwing Things,” which closed the first encore, well, it was as compelling as it was when it first appeared on No Pocky for Kitty in 1991. True to their nature, the band came out for a second encore, and closed with “Slack Motherfucker.” Balance wrote the song back in 1990 and, whoever it was addressed to at the time, Mac has proven to be anything but.

I recorded this set with Superchunk FOH Matthew Barnhart’s soundboard mix, together with Audio Technica 4051 microphones onstage. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Ty Segall: June 24, 2015 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

We’ve already posted two of the shows of Ty Segall’s brief four-show NYC acoustic tour from June (Mercury Lounge and Rough Trade). This night at Baby’s All Right was special because it was the first one — Ty remarked that it was indeed his first ever full acoustic show outside of California. This set was close to the vest as Ty played the show fairly straightforward and tight, as opposed to the Rough Trade show later in the week which was a loose and crazy midnight set with a ton of covers. The Baby’s show featured the premiere of several new songs, but it remains to be seen whether those songs will be released as acoustic or full band numbers. Either way, the new songs are strong and meshed well with older material, particularly the tracks from Sleeper, the title track of which we’re streaming below. But this set was not completely devoid of covers, as Ty and guest Cory Hanson played a sweet version of Neil Young’s “For The Turnstiles”, also streaming below. Ty Segall will return to the NYC area in the Fall with his hardcore/metal band Fuzz for a gig at Bowery Ballroom on November 15.

This set was recorded by House FOH Harrison, who provided a superb live mix of the multitrack. There are also cardioid microphones installed near the lighting rig about 15 feet in front of the stage. In post-production, I mixed the two sources and the results are quite excellent. Enjoy!

Gizz Babys (2)
[screen cap from this video]

The recent NYC visit by King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard yielded two very different shows. The standard Bowery night was a fun experience and an excellent performance that we captured in our usual manner. A few night later, the Gizz played a surprise midnight show at Baby’s All Right that was announced the day before and sold out immediately. This late show was a hoot from the start under some very difficult circumstances. The air conditioner at Baby’s was on the fritz for the night and the packed crowd was baking fairly early in the Gizz set. Throughout the show there were buckets of ice poured into the crowd, bottles of water thrown from the stage and some crazy hijinx all around. The set followed in a similar vein to the Bowery setlist with the I’m In Your Mind Fuzz material leading off the night that included several new songs. By the end of the hour-long set, it was hard for anyone to physically continue but the band finished with a rousing “Heaven/Pill” before all collapsed in exhaustion and sweat.

A short time after this show, King Gizzard announced that the band had signed to ATO Records and would release a new album with the label in the Fall of 2015, presumably including the several songs we saw during the NYC shows. The band returns to NYC on September 16 for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

This set was recorded by House FOH Harrison, who provided a superb live mix of the multitrack. There are also cardioid microphones installed near the lighting rig about 15 feet in front of the stage. In post-production, I mixed the two sources and the results are quite excellent. Enjoy!
