Ty Segall: June 26, 2015 Mercury Lounge – Flac/MP3/Streaming

We have seen Ty Segall in quite a few different settings, from a tiny DIY club, to two huge punk shows at Webster Hall, to a semi-acoustic night on the Sleeper tour at Bowery Ballroom. All of these various experiences have all added up to the same result — a powerful evening of superb music and a satisfied crowd. When it was announced that Ty would play a series of solo acoustic shows in NYC, we were confident that the nights would be yet another different but equally compelling experience of live Ty Segall. On Friday, he appeared at Mercury Lounge for an early show which would be followed later in the evening with a midnight show at Rough Trade. While the Merc show had fairly early doors, the sold-out show filled up the room quickly when it was still daylight out. This show’s setlist was very different from the one at Baby’s All Right on Wednesday (recording coming soon), and definitely veered towards the more mellow side of this catalog, with Sleeper well-represented. There were also three goofy covers (Devo, Spinal Tap and The Cars), the last of which we are streaming below. The newsworthy part of this set was the fact that Ty played a bunch of new songs on this mini-tour including four on this night. Our initial favorite of the new songs is called “California Hills”, and is a pointed indictment of California suburban life. Ty was joined mid-set by Wand’s Cory Hanson and the two meshed effortlessly, before Ty ended the show solo again. It was a short but sweet set and the performers had a good time themselves, as they messed around a bit with the covers, some cover teases, and one silly mock-up of Ty’s well-known song “Girlfriend” to rank on the guy in the crowd who wouldn’t stop screaming out requests for it. Ty has a few more shows scheduled this Summer out on the West coast, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cardioids set up on a stand next to the soundboard booth and mixed with an excellent feed provided by house FOH David. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

We also recorded the Baby’s and Rough Trade shows and those are coming soon.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: June 19, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

In the year since we were first introduced to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, they’ve grown from being fairly obscure Australian psych-rock ravers to the group that released one of our favorite albums of the last year, signed with Castle Face Records in the US, and this past week sold out Bowery Ballroom. Last Fall they played two of our favorite shows of the past year, a eye-opener as support for White Fence at Baby’s All Right, and a completely insane set at a loft show on Halloween. In between the band released I’m In Your Mind Fuzz to universally positive reviews and gained enough of a foothold in the US to return six months later from halfway across the world and fill a room that it takes others years to achieve. That says a lot for the musicianship and songwriting of The Gizz, but for their live shows its mostly about the unbridled energy they bring to each performance. At Bowery, the band started with the four-song medley that opens Mind and the crowd was with them from note one — this was one of those shows where it was hard to ever even catch your breath. The set also featured a handful of new songs, each of which fit right into the flow and maintained the energy inside the venue. This bodes well for the quality of the band’s future releases. I later learned from speaking with the band that there will be likely two upcoming releases, details to follow.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards and a fine board feed from our usual location at the Bowery and the sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

We also captured the Baby’s All Right sets from later in the week and will post those in the coming days.

Woods Rough Trade (2)
[photo by Shara]

To continue the theme from the Beach Fossils post on Monday, we saw Woods this past weekend at Rough Trade for the first time since our final night at Death By Audio in November. We’ve seen Woods many times over the years, including several other venues that no longer exist (Monster Island Basement, 285 Kent, The 1896) and one that been closed for a few years but will have a grand opening by the end of the year (Market Hotel). But things are going very well for Woods these days, and its really still all about the continued evolution of band who are now a tight, well-oiled machine. This show contained a similar setlist from the DBA show, but with the added bonus of a couple of encores that featured some classic Woods cuts that we haven’t heard lately.

In the next few days we’ll have a really special announcement about Woods’ next NYC show. Stay tuned.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted inside of the soundboard cage and mixed with an excellent feed provided by house FOH Kyle. Kyle did a really nice stereo pan and the result is that the recording has superb separation and overall quality. Enjoy!

ST 37: May 6, 2015 Knitting Factory – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

IMG_1444

ST 37 have been at the game longer than some percentage of their audience had probably been alive. These two NYC sets gave us a much-appreciated amount of exposure to the Austin band, as neither of us had seen them before. Their style, which I might call “psychedelic hardcore”, lends itself to the live setting, where they get the chance to experiment and let their songs grow. We were fortunate enough to catch both sets at Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge that featured completely different setlists. In both cases, we got a nice taste of the band’s range, from more straight-up hardcore numbers like “White Comanche” to meditative jam numbers like “KBDP (Karen Black’s Demerol Patch),” which sounds a bit like the drug referenced in the title. Between these two killer sets, the default winner almost has to be the Mercury set, where tourmate Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple joined the band for “Just You.” Make sure to make a date with ST 37 the next time they’re out your way.

Both of these sets were recorded with Schoeps microphones (mine being MK41V supercardiods, nyctaper’s being CCM4 cardiods) and soundboard feeds. The sound quality of both is excellent. Enjoy!

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead: May 9, 2015 Capitol Theatre – Flac/MP3/Streaming (Matrix)

May 27, 2015
By

JRAD Cap (2)

We’ve been with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead from their very first show at Brooklyn Bowl, so it was especially exciting to see the band in the big room at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. Given the special historical relationship between The Cap and the Grateful Dead, this gig was a kind of affirmation for JRAD. And the fans agreed — this date sold out quickly and well in advance. So there was a palpable sense of excitement when the band took the stage and immediately burst into a ’76-77 era version of “Dancing In the Streets” filled with neat funky guitar fills and tons of energy from the rhythm section. JRAD is always full of surprises, but what happened next was especially nice for us here at NYCTaper — the entrance onto the stage of friend of the site Nicole Atkins. Nicole ostensibly performed the “Donna parts” throughout the night, except that she’s a significantly better vocalist than Donna Godchaux ever showed during her time in the Grateful Dead (check out Nicole’s solo verses on “Music”). And as expected, Nicole provided a series of breathtaking moments throughout the night, highlighted by her solo rendition of Pigpen’s late era classic ballad “The Stranger (Two Souls in Communion)”, which like all JRAD performances balanced the tender line between tribute and respectful original take on the music. It was an interesting choice of material to feature Nicole on lead vocals and the selection proved brilliant.

This night was also featured an abundance what we have come to expect from JRAD shows — inspired and collaborative improvisational work which imparts new life into well-worn material. The version of “Dancing” definitely took its flavor from the late 70s GD, but JRAD took it out deep, and when the song reached to the final chorus after nearly twenty-minutes, it returned from places the Dead never imagined. “Cassidy” is a track that became fairly static in the later years of GD performances, which was a shame because the composition offers a jam-ready mid-song interlude. As expected, JRAD took that offer and upped the ante considerably. The mid-“Cassidy” jam contained a Playing-like deep space that gradually reached a manic Caution-like climax that we didn’t expect would ever return to the song proper. But return it did, ever so briefly, before exploding into a ’69-style “St. Stephen” that nearly took the roof off the old place. The first set continued with an extended “Eyes” that teased “Loose Lucy” before it flowed into a celebratory “Not Fade Away” that closed the meaty set. The second set’s opener “Music Never Stopped” followed the same path as “Cassidy”, taking a fairly static GD song that offered space for improvisation and taking full advantage. This “Music” extended past fifteen minutes before it returned to the final refrain. The remainer of the show was notable for its continued intensity, imaginative song selections and the true dedication to the music exhibited by all. By the time the band reached the set’s final song, a sweet “Ripple” encore, it was clear that Joe Russo’s Almost Dead had truly done the historic Cap proud.

This recording is a special one for the site. We were granted access to a soundboard feed in order to mix a special “matrix” of this show. I set up the mics in the taper’s section at the front right corner of the soundboard cage. I utilized the Schoeps cards and added the Grace V3 as a pre-amp to sweeten the capture. The room sounded terrific and the crowd was fairly respectful. The board feed was impeccably mixed by JRAD FOH Pete Costello — a perfect stereo pan, complete separation and superb balance. The matrix mix is fairly even between board and audience. The result is one of the best recordings we’ve ever offered on this site. Enjoy!

This recording would not have been possible without the generosity and assistance of three separate entities — the outstanding staff at the Capitol Theatre, Pete Costello, and of course the members of JRAD.

Mikal Cronin: May 5, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Mikal Cronin is a master of power pop, combining the Big Star sound with punk’s rawer side. His latest for Merge RecordsMCIII, finds the Ty Segall affiliate more in the “pop” camp than ever, with spit-shined production and chorus after chorus that you can’t forget. This show at Bowery Ballroom celebrated the release of MCIII, but found Cronin skipping around his catalog, everything from the MCII favorite “See It My Way” to “Apathy”, “Green and Blue” and others from his debut.

Since we last saw him at Hopscotch in 2013, Cronin has grown even more comfortable at center stage, commanding the sold-out house throughout the night. The new album is an evolution for Cronin, taking him further from the fertile San Francisco garage-rock camp from which he came and further into music’s most accessible realms, and it seems to be working for him. Perhaps the strongest performance came mid-set, when “Feel Like” caught everyone’s ear. It’s a straightforward song both musically and lyrically, and it’s also impossible not to hum for days after. This music practically screams to be heard at summer festivals, in car stereos, at lake- and beach-houses. And, I suspect it will be.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41V supercardiod micrphones and a soundboard feed from Bowery’s very own Kenny. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Of all the times that NYCTaper has captured Acid Mothers Temple and all of their many trips to NYC, I have personally never had the pleasure of recording the band live. Sure, there were tickets purchased and then eaten, missed connections and just plain bad timing, but it was all remedied on Thursday night when the band played one of their legendary space rock shows at Mercury Lounge. In my mind, I was prepared for the sonic onslaught and the noisy and trippy jams, but to see the band live is to be mesmerized by their proficiency and awed by their no-holds-barred approach to the material. There aren’t songs as much as themes that meld gradually into other themes and in some respects defy the archivist’s ability to track and provide a setlist. For me personally, there was a point during the trifeca of “Pink Lady Intro” (a fan-created title for an apparently untitled melodic jam segment) that segued neatly into the “OM Riff” and then crashed into “Pink Lady Lemonade” proper, when I truly appreciated the unique and powerful quality of AMT and their ability to play this style of music perhaps better than any other band, living or dead. Its really a treat that after twenty years and multiple groupings of personnel, that we are still able to experience AMT’s profound live shows. This may unbelievably be my first time, but it certainly won’t be the last. Acid Mothers Temple’s current US tour has another seven dates, all in the South and West, and ends on May 18th in San Diego.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards on a stand next to the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed provided by the Merc’s FOH Val. The sound quality is quite outstanding. Enjoy!

We have followed the career trajectory of Hurray For The Riff from their very beginnings playing small clubs, basements and rooftops in NYC. We were so pleased to still be invited to join the party when the band celebrated their “Bowery Moment” last Friday night — a healthy sell-out of the Bowery Ballroom with friends and family in attendance. Its definitely a “we made it” night for bands and particularly sweet for HFTRR who’ve been working hard at their craft for a decade. The recent years have been kind them as we outlined when we caught them at the XPonential Festival last Summer, but that first Bowery night is always a special one. For the show the band worked through a setlist that featured primarily tracks from the last two albums Look Out Mama and Small Town Heroes but also a nifty Lucinda Williams cover (from their covers album) and one brand new song “Living in the City”, that Bronx-born Alynda Lee Segarra dedicated to NYC. Hurray For The Riff Raff is currently on an extensive US tour that is going through the South and Midwest before we’ll catch up with them again at Mountain Jam in June.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cardioids mounted in our usual Bowery spot and mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Waxahatchee: April 9, 2015 Music Hall of Williamsburg – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

We last saw Waxahatchee, aka Katie Crutchfield, in the least ideal of circumstances, after Hurricane Sandy had prevented her band from joining her for the Don Giovanni showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Nonetheless, she played a memorable, vulnerable impromptu solo set that captivated us and had a lot of fans. Now, in 2015, she was back at MHOW with a full band that included her twin sister, Allison (of Swearin‘) and Ashley Arnwine of Bleeding Rainbow and Pinkish, who brought the musical skill to bring her songs to life. An Alabama native, Crutchfield took off with her second album, Cerulean Salt, but it should be her recent Merge Records release, Ivy Tripp, that takes her to the next level, giving her both the biggest sound, and the biggest exposure for it, yet. This show was way sold out, and I suspect that’ll be a trend.

This show kicked off with one of Ivy Tripp‘s best songs, “Breathless”, followed by a more rocking track from that album, “Under A Rock”. From there, the band jumped primarily between the last two albums, including a fiery “Waiting” and the leadoff single to Ivy Tripp, “Air”. Crutchfield’s strength lies in both the phrasing and style of her voice as well as her vocal content; she’s not afraid for her audience to actually hear what she has to say. Her songs can cut you to the quick; they’re personal, rich, and forceful.

In addition to more muscular full-band numbers, Waxahatchee didn’t shy from returning to her solo roots, performing an encore that included two of the standout tracks from her first record, “Grass Stain” and “Noccalula”, along with new track “Summer of Love”. She may have come a long way from her lo-fi solo roots, but what makes Crutchfield great hasn’t changed.

Los Lobos: March 6, 2015 Capitol Theatre, Port Chester – Flac/MP3/Streaming

March 10, 2015

[photos by PSquared Photography]

Its the result of a bunch of missed connections, but the strange reality is that I have never recorded Los Lobos for NYCTaper before in the nearly eight years of existence of the site. Los Lobos is one of the most powerful and prolific live bands and last year they celebrated their 40th year of existence, and I’ve seen them a bunch of times over the years, but not for NYCTaper. Only Acidjack and JFCB have recorded them for the site — a Brooklyn Bowl show back in 2012. They’ve also traditionally welcomed tapers going back decades. And as a special celebration, tomorrow I will post a “new” transfer of a 1996 recording of Los Lobos at Mercury Lounge — a show recorded by my friend Eric Vandercar that I attended as Eric’s “blocker”.

In Port Chester on Friday, the Capitol Theatre was really the perfect venue for this band. After a superb opening set by Alejandro Escovedo (coming soon), Los Lobos took the stage to a very engaged crowd. There was none of the persistent yapping you hear at other shows. This was a seated and attentive crowd that Los Lobos acknowledged from the outset. The band took their time working their way into this show with an early run through some classics before they welcomed Alejandro out for a couple of numbers. It was an extended and well played version of “The Neighborhood” that kicked this show into another gear. David Hidalgo’s blues guitar riffs were showcased during an incendiary 14-minute “Just A Man” before the fan favorite “Kiko” brought the crowd to their feet for the remainder of the show. The band gave a nice acknowledgement to Jerry Garcia (the venue’s side bar is called “Garcia’s”) before the performance of the set-closing “Bertha”, a song Los Lobos covered all the way back in 1991 for the Deadicated compilation. We’re streaming it below. But the band wasn’t done. The encore segment began with a brief blues jam that led directly into Cesar Rosas’ “Don’t Worry Baby” which then transitioned to “May Y Mas” — another extended version that we are streaming below. The final segue was a neat back and forth between the band’s one Top 40 hit “La Bamba” and the same-three-chords rock classic Good Lovin’ after which the band bid an appropriate good night. Los Lobos tour continues next week with a brief run through the Northwest, dates here.

I recorded this show with the Schoeps mounted on a seven foot pole located at the front right corner of the soundboard cage. As this was seated show, my location was Orchestra Row J, Seat 109. The direct line at the stacks and the wonderful sound quality of a well mixed room resulted in an outstanding recording. Enjoy!
