Colin Fisher, Mike Pride, Carl Testa Trio: August 10, 2016 Secret Project Robot

IMG_1139

On a night that included incredible experimental music of many stripes — including Chris Forsyth’s set with Loren Connors, and the last Secret Project Robot set ever from People of the North (coming soon), it made perfect sense that the evening’s middle act was a free jazz trio of some of the most interesting and well regarded players we’ve seen in a while. The trio of Colin Fisher, Mike Pride and Carl Testa added a different and welcome dimension, their all-improvisational jam’s headier aspects brought to the fore by the light show behind them. Each of these musicians has a deep resume of appearances with luminaries that cross the jazz and experimental rock realms, and you could feel the breadth of that experience at work in this piece. Anyone who reads our too-infrequent jazz posts on this site knows that our enthusiasm for the genre far outstrips our ability to comment on it, so don’t take my word for it — hear this one for yourself.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones at the stage lip (per the picture). The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Oneida: July 30, 2016 Secret Project Robot

August 2, 2016

IMG_1024

Oneida used to share a building in Williamsburg with the DIY art institution Secret Project Robot — a relationship we documented both at the band’s private studio space, and at a series of farewell shows for the group at that location. While the band and SPR physically went their separate ways, the two remained united in ethos, and Oneida have remained a fixture at SPR events since. This summertime performance — held indoors because of rain — was yet another farewell to Secret Project Robot, which will be relocating from its Melrose Street location in Bushwick to a new frontier this fall. It was fitting, then, that Oneida helmed the sendoff, joined by some of the strongest local bands going, including Guerilla Toss and Honey.

This set was dominated by the band’s “Preteen Weaponry” three-part song, as well as fairly concise versions (by Oneida standards) of “Bad Habit” and “Economy Travel.” As the band’s cryptic sounds filled the repurposed warehouse space, walls covered in trippy 90s-referencing images (Bart Simpson, Ninja Turtles), it was yet another reminder of what spaces like Secret Project Robot mean to the people who frequent them, and what they mean to cities in general. Even if you’re not one of the proud freaks and weirdos (I don’t think of those as insults) who hangs out there, even if you’ve never set foot in a place like it, Secret Project Robot has had an effect on your city, and in a sense, on who you are. Spaces like this are for the true creators, the ones whose utter abandonment of the expected opens up whole new zones of the possible. And as long as there are these spaces, and the people in them, we will be a better place for it.

But a space like Secret Project Robot isn’t a warehouse or an address — it’s an idea. And we look forward to what they will do next.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones and an Aeta PSP3 preamp way up front. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Big Ups: July 16, 2016 Out In the Streets Festival

July 21, 2016
By

IMG_0760

Big Ups is one of the very best live bands in New York right now. At the core of that has to be the kinetic-but-controlled performance of vocalist Joe Galarraga, who reminds at times of a skinny Henry Rollins with a sense of humor. Mugging for the crowd, twisting his body into unusual positions, he never loses sight of the music or the message being delivered, which he propels at you in spoken word that rises at the right moments to scream. Brendan Finn (drums), Amar Lal (guitar) and Carlos Salguero (bass) make that performance possible, with controlled dynamics that pay as much attention to the softer interludes as to their songs’ frequent climaxes. Having seen these guys twice in 2014, promoting their first album Eighteen Hours of Static, and been blown away each time, we were eager to see where they’d gone from there.

The band’s 2016 record, Before A Million Universes, advances the conversation both lyrically and musically. At this performance at the Out In the Streets Festival, the band’s growth was evident in the current-album numbers “Contain Myself,” “Hope for Someone,” and “National Parks,” as well as a new piece that explores the soft/loud dynamic even further. On this sweltering, thunderstorm-pocked afternoon, the band commanded a friendly crowd who clearly knew them well, and made the most of the thirty minutes’ time allotted. The band’s music may be darker in tone, but Galarraga doesn’t let that get in the way of having a laugh with the crowd, or pulling faces that fall on the lighter side of serious. Even with the sun shining, by the time the set reached the band’s most straightforward hardcore number, “Goes Black,” we were all living in his world, and there was nothing else around.

In a crowded festival season, Out In the Streets is a perfect, smaller-scale local standout, with a tent to shield the bands and the music part of the crowd in the middle of Ridgewood’s historic Onderdonk House’s ample backyard, ringed with vendors, lounge chairs and picnic tables, and (not to be underestimated) plenty of bathrooms. The lineup, of course, reflected that ethos, with many of the best local acts (including Big Ups and, coming soon, Guerilla Toss) that Brooklyn fans see year-round at clubs like Shea Stadium and Baby’s All Right. It was one of those days that brought together like-minded people in a comfortable, manageable way — and gave us yet another serious jones for more Big Ups.

Downtown Boys: June 24, 2016 Market Hotel

July 18, 2016

Its been a very discouraging year for forward-looking people. Tonight begins the tacky celebration of the nomination of a vulgar racist xenophobe of a major political party for President of the United States. Its as if for the next three days, forty percent of the country will be giving a massive middle finger to people of color, and anyone with a conscience and a sense of justice feels helpless.

The question then becomes what can we do. If you’re a group of young multicultural people from Providence Rhode Island, you form a punk band with a message — that hatred and xenophobia are things of the past and we, a “bi bilingual political dance sax punk party” are here, and we are the future. Downtown Boys are certainly a breath of fresh air in this toxic world. The band’s themes of inclusion and acceptance within the realm of punk (with a sax!) isn’t particularly a new idea, but add in bi-lingual lyrics and LGBT elements, and the idea of the perfectly integrated musical act becomes closer to realization. That the band executes their message with energy and commitment makes their music all the more compelling.

The Downtown Boys show at Market Hotel was one of those nights that won’t soon be forgotten. The band’s increased popularity brought out a truly diverse crowd, and given the Market’s goal of providing a community of musical performances of diverse styles and backgrounds, the band represented an inspiring coupling of ideals. In 2015 Downtown Boys signed with the most excellent Don Giovanni Records and released Full Communism to universally positive reviews. Its an encouraging development for the band that their call for human rights is reaching a larger and more accepting audience. At the Market, the set saw the performance of most of Full Communism, a few older tracks, and what I believe are six new songs that hopefully portends a 2016/2017 new album from Downtown Boys.

Downtown Boys return to NYC for a show at Studio at Webster Hall on September 16.

I recorded this set with the installed AT mics mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound is live and raucous and in the moment and totally excellent. Enjoy!

Thermals: April 28, 2016 Market Hotel

The Thermals @ Market Hotel
[photos by Will Oliver from We All Want Someone blog]

“This is the best Brooklyn show we’ve ever had, for sure”. Hutch Harris made his love of this night clear before the band’s last song, the third of three encores “Pillar Of Salt”. In a way it wasn’t hard to predict that The Thermals at the Market Hotel would be a show for the ages — the two institutions have recently returned from a hiatus and are now better than ever. There are also historical parallels between the two — ToddP used to book earlier versions of the band in Portland in the last decade.

This was a show for the now, as The Thermals’ first new album in three years, We Disappear was released in the end of March and the band is on tour to support its release. But there was also an acknowledgment of history as the band is also celebrating the 10th anniversary of perhaps their most successful album, 2006’s The Body, the Blood, the Machine. As a result, the setlist was a curious alternating selection of songs from each album in sequence with a few other classics sprinkled in between. The show maintained a consistent energy level and the very sold-out crowd was with the band throughout — physically and support-wise. This was one of the most animated Market crowds thus far and the band acknowledged the crowd in tribute.

The Thermals tour continues across the US over the next 3 weeks, dates here.

I recorded this set with the installed Audio Technics cards mixed with an excellent board feed mixed by the band’s superb touring FOH. The results are raw but right. Enjoy!

Bambara: February 25, 2016 Palisades

March 2, 2016

IMG_1654

The Brooklyn post-punk band Bambara knows how to make noise. This show at Palisades, to celebrate the forthcoming release of their album, Swarm, this Friday (March 4), proved what those who’ve been paying attention already knew — that this band has the charisma, and the delivery, to take them beyond Bushwick DIY stages. They’ve already had a taste of that, of course, having toured with site favorites METZ and A Place to Bury Strangers, among others. But Swarm, the band’s first professionally-recorded effort, shows this band’s possibilities. It’s a gloomy, late-night sort of effort, sustained by its rhythmic appeal and the band’s dead-on delivery. In the live setting, they don’t hold back, with frontman Reid Bateh anchoring the effort with his considerable onstage charisma while his brother Blaze hammers the drums along to William Brookshire’s bass. This show covered some of the standout tracks on Swarm, as well as favorites from the band’s debut, Dreamviolence. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the band around NYC in the near future, with upcoming gigs at Berlin and Saint Vitus.

I made this recording with Schoeps MK22 open cardiod microphones at the stage lip plus a soundboard feed from Palisades FOH Leeor. While the sound is a little off balance (a tad heavy on bass guitar) it is overall a high quality listen. Stream the full show (minus banter) plus the available tracks from Swarm below as well.

The Soft Moon: February 13, 2016 Market Hotel

February 15, 2016

[screen capture from this video]

Sometimes adversity breaks bands; other times it breeds strength. The Soft Moon have had more than their share of travails on this tour, the most notable being that they got robbed during their West Coast leg, leaving them with no gear or merch for the rest of the tour. Fans stepped up via their GoFundMe page, and they were back on their way bowed but not broken.

Here in New York, things haven’t been quite that dramatic, but this show still goes down as “challenged.” Venue growing pains meant some gremlins in the Market Hotel’s new sound system cropped up at the worst time, leaving the venue scrambling to get the show on track and the band without a soundcheck. By the time the band came on, there had been a few hiccups in other sets, but the show went on mostly without a hitch. Then, the sound system died at the end of The Soft Moon’s first song, “Black.”

Visibly frustrated, the band faced a choice — call it a night, or plow ahead. With almost nothing technology-wise on their side, they chose the latter, giving the crowd who’d braved sub-zero temperatures a memorable, hard-charging set that channeled frontman/creator Luis Vasquez’s rage into the conduit of their songs, dark, synth-driven postpunk dirges whose disaffection no doubt matched Vasquez’s actual mood. The band’s latest album, Sleeper, is arguably its best, and we got a fine sampling of those tracks, including “Black,” “Wasting,” and “Wrong.” The new record’s added depth was evident on the electropop pleaser from that record, “Far,” in particular.

Among the several performances of theirs we‘ve covered, The Soft Moon have never failed to draw a large crowd, and to draw them in once there, and this show continued the theme. Vasquez is a natural to watch, contorting his body as he belts lyrics that are often buried under effects. Fans crowded around him under the red stage lights, right in the impact zone for the sound system’s deep bass to catch them up in the whirlwind onstage. Once the sound was on track, so were The Soft Moon, and Vasquez was unrelenting for the rest of the set — perhaps afraid to pause too long. The crowd stayed with them, right through the pummeling encore of “Die Life,” “Want” and a new(?) track. The Soft Moon didn’t get to have a perfect night, but they can count this as another good one for those of us on the other side of the stage. For a second shot at seeing the band, come to Baby’s All Right on Feb 18.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed of Dana Wachs’ house mix, coupled with Audio Technica microphones mounted in our usual spot in the venue. Other than the general sound system issues, which we’ve removed, the sound quality is quite good. Enjoy!

The Soft Moon have upcoming shows in Philadelphia on Feb 16, New Haven Feb 17, at Baby’s All Right in NYC Feb 18. See all their tour dates here.

Soda: January 28, 2016 Alphaville

February 11, 2016
By

IMG_1334

Gainesville, FL trio Soda rolled into Alphaville in Brooklyn a few weeks ago during a spate of area shows that established them as yet another quality product of a fertile local scene (college towns are good like that). The three piece, consisting of founder Lara Lookabaugh on bass/vocals, Arlington Garret on guitar/vocals,  and Meredith Kite on drums, just dropped a tight six-song EPWithout A Head, on Andrew Savage’s Dull Tools label. That well-produced record belies the dirtier-but-possibly-more-entertaining reality of the band’s live show, which like their home state manages to be both scuzzy and transcendent, sometimes at the same time. In other words, Soda fit right in with the current Brooklyn moment, producing approachable punk-influenced rock that’s delightfully unspecific in its focus and easy to love. The double vocal attack of Lookabaugh and Garrett works well live, both sounding good and offering some welcome gender parity in an area of the music world that doesn’t always have it. This show covered most of the new EP, as well as two unreleased songs, “Plucking Hairs” and “Know How.” As an introduction of this new band to New York, this and their other recent New York shows did the trick, as we’re all looking forward to more. Stream the EP below along with this show, and if you like it, please buy it!

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41V supercardiod mics from a location near the soundboard. The sound quality is quite good for the room. Enjoy!

Palm: January 29, 2016 Palisades

February 3, 2016
By

IMG_1376

The band Palm bring an impressive amount of music experimentation to the table, especially for a fairly young band. The compatriots, who met at Bard College upstate, but now reside in the independent music hotbed of Philadelphia, claim to be short on formal training, but I’m calling B.S. on that. Or rather, if their ability to produce intricate, jazz-inflected songs filled with unusual, shifting time signatures is something they just came up with on their own, then formal training may as well hang it up. On this packed weekend night at DIY-ish Palisades, the foursome came ready to wow us, playing only one song from their standout 2015 LP Trading Basics, released by Exploding In Sound. So we got the (relatively) hooky “Ankles” from that record, paired with a slew of relatively new or very-new songs, many of which the band themselves don’t have titles for. You could see that at points the members were feeling the songs out among each other, casting glances across the stage, but you wouldn’t have known it without looking at them; this material feels dialed-in and ready for primetime. What Palm are doing certainly has its cultural touchstones — some of the great “math rock” bands of mid-late-90s like Faraquet, Smart Went Crazy, June of 44 and Polvo — but it’s also daring and fresh at a time in “rock” music where the norm is more often party music that keeps a low bar. If the band’s subsequent releases have anything in common with what we heard tonight, or Trading Basics, then we’re going to be impressed by them for a very, very long time.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK22 open cardiod microphones onstage together with a soundboard feed from Palisades FOH Ariel. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

B Boys: January 28, 2016 Alphaville

February 2, 2016
By

IMG_1314

Our man EricPH was ahead of the curve when he caught B Boys last spring at Silent Barn, before they had anything but a single to their name. Fast forward a little less than a year, and they’re Captured Tracks‘ latest signing, with their No Worry No Mind EP set to drop in March. Take a look at this twenty minute burner of a show at Alphaville, heavily stacked with both their friends and buzz-seekers, and you can expect B Boys to catch fire. These lighthearted post-punks don’t take themselves too seriously, concerning themselves more with crowd-pleasing hooks and an easygoing onstage presence. This show covered much of the new EP’s territory, though its excellent new single, “Get A Grip” didn’t quite happen. Instead, you can stream that song now on their bandcamp page and over at Captured Tracks’ site — an appropriate home for B Boys’ sound and outlook. It says something about the band that out of a 22-minute set, they closed with two versions of the same song, playing both the slower and more sped-up versions of “Psycho,” both of which also appear on the forthcoming EP. Next time you get the chance, come in out of the cold for B Boys. It’ll be fun.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41V supercardiod microphones and a soundboard feed that mostly provided vocals. The capture is appropriate to the venue and the style, a little ragged, but right. Enjoy!
