Moon Duo anchored a night of psychedelic and punk music in Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum on the second night of Hopscotch Music Festival. We caught up with the band earlier this year at Rough Trade, but weren’t able to catch this Hopscotch set. Luckily, our man “Rumbleseat” was in attendance, and captured this band in all its glory, against a fractal backdrop that felt right at home in the cavernous CAM. As with the Rough Trade set, Moon Duo moved around their catalog a bit, including material from their latest Sacred Bones release, Shadow of the Sun. We were especially happy to get to hear a live version of “Free Action,” which we didn’t get to see at their recent sets in New York. This performance no doubt set the mood for the heads who stuck around to see Roky Erickson do his thing to finish the night. Clearly, Moon Duo learned some lessons from him, and more.

Rumbleseat recorded this set with two sets of mics, Church Audio CA-11s on the ceiling and Shure SM-57s on stage, combined with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Obnox: May 15, 2015 Cake Shop – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Last year’s Louder Space wasn’t so much a breakthrough album for Obnox as it was a perfect distillation of Lamont Bim Thomas’ prolific garage-punk/hip-hop outfit. If the juxtaposition of those two genres gives you pause, fear not: Thomas is equally comfortable whether he’s doing an MC5-inspired cover of Neil Young’s “Ohio” or namechecking Mary J. Blige. He’s followed up Louder Space this year with the excellent Boogalou Reed (on 12XU) and the just-released Know America (on Ever/Never Records), an airwaves-takeover-style concept record. And in case I didn’t sufficiently highlight the word “prolific,” he’s got another record coming Ever/Never later this year. Even with this wealth of new material, last week’s Obnox set from Cake Shop (currently celebrating their ten-year anniversary) is packed with hits from the deepest reaches of their discography: “How to Rob (The Punk Years),” “Molecule,” “Mecca Son Shine,” and “Red I” from Louder Space; “Dough” and the title track from the “Smoke Woody Haze” EP; “Being Cleveland” from the double LP Corrupt Free Enterprise. The newer tracks are “Loudpack” and “Grease” from Know America, and “Watching You” from Boogalou Reed. Meanwhile, “Carmen, I Love You” is out digitally but a vinyl issue seems imminent. Some technical troubles prevented Thomas from playing guitar for the bulk of the set, but what’s missed in his distorted guitar work is more than made up for by his on-point vocal delivery and best-in-the-business stage banter.

I recorded this set with a pair of AKGs set up at the stage lip and a pair of Church Audio cards positioned to pick up the monitors. Very special thanks to Cake Shop’s engineer Jeff, who made this recording possible by helping me out with a loaner stand. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
