Noveller: January 29, 2015 Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

February 4, 2015
By

Noveller

The word “cinematic” is an often lazy descriptor employed in order to say something/anything about abstract instrumental music. And yet when discussing Noveller née Sarah Lipstate’s music, it’s exceedingly difficult not to use the word. Performing live, I can’t recall seeing her incorporate video or visuals into her set, despite being well-known as a filmmaker. Perhaps it’s because her music itself is already a visual medium, suggesting and conjuring images in the listener’s imagination, as if environments and topographies are being transported by sound. Her album and song titles are filled with geological and elemental references—glaciers, deserts, dunes, mountains, fire—so listening at home there is often some specific direction for the imagination. But live, without immediate access to song titles, the experience is something maybe a little less directed, left to the listener’s own mind.

I caught Noveller at Cameo Gallery for her Fantastic Planet record release show. Already the album’s title carries filmic connotations—Fantastic Planet (La Planète sauvage) is a French stop motion animated film from the seventies. (Its soundtrack, by Alain Goraguer, has recently been reissued and Ad Hoc’s latest zine has a feature on it.) I haven’t read anything affirming the record’s reference to the film, but the connection, however tenuous, is likely. New songs like “Into the Dunes,” “Rubicon,” and the driving, rhythmic “Pulse Point” sound coincident to that film’s bizarre imagery and stark landscapes. “Growing,” along with album- and set-closer “The Ascent” build towards a resolution to the action of the preceding songs and seem to emphasize some knowledge or understanding gained.

Though this set focuses mostly on the new record, it also integrates three selections from 2013’s No Dreams: the title track, “Purchase,” and “Gathering the Elements.” Thematically, those songs fit in seamlessly with the new material and while there’s definitely a narrative arc to her set, I’d be hard pressed to put it into words. Better to listen with an open mind and let the songs take you where they’re going.

I recorded this set with the mics positioned in front of the board and a feed from Cameo Gallery FOH Gary. The crowd was a little chatty so this mix favors the board feed with the mics adding some room depth. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Noveller plays tonight, February 4th, at The Wick as part of the Tinnitus Music Series. Tickets are still available.

nyctaper Top 10 Concerts of 2014

December 27, 2014
By

taper-larger

NYCTaper (the site) will have our “Top 25 Moments” post later this week, but in the meantime this is the nyctaper (the person) list of my Top 10 concerts of 2014. Since I recorded less than half of the recordings posted on the site this year, its by no means comprehensive but its a personal list I’ve done since the site began in 2007.

1. The War On Drugs: March 19 and 20 2014 Bowery Ballroom
2014 was pretty much the year of the The War On Drugs. Their album has been the consensus number one selection among a vast number of end-of-year lists — appearing at or near the top in every single list we’ve read recently. And we’re proud of the fact that we were there first. In my review of this show, I predicted that Lost In The Dream would be an album of the year candidate and would be in the decade discussion. The band played two flawless shows at Bowery Ballroom, bringing the new album’s material to life with passion and precision.

2. Wussy: October 10, 2014 Knitting Factory / October 11, 2014 Private House Larchmont NY
2014 was also the year of Wussy. As their album Attica continues to show up on virtually every knowledgeable year-end list, it appears that the world at large is finally catching on to a band we’ve been pushing for the last half-decade. In between these two shows — a full band set headlining the CBGB Fest at the Knit, and the following night playing acoustically at a private house show — Wussy filmed a segment with CBS national morning news that recently aired. It was their first national tv appearance, and I’m guessing it won’t be their last. Both of these shows were great for different reasons, but both indicated the strengths of this unconventional but extraordinary band.

3. Wilco: October 29, 2014 Capitol Theatre Port Chester NY
Of the three nights when Wilco celebrated their 20th anniversary and the tour came to the NYC area, this was my favorite night for variety of reasons. The performances on all three nights were top notch, but this night had the extra bonus of some older Wilco material that I had never heard live or hadn’t seen in years.

4. Ty Segall: September 17, 2014 Webster Hall
Ty Segall keeps churning out the records and they keep getting better. The shows are also genuinely the best show in town — crazy talented band, great songs and a crowd that matches the energy from stage top to bottom. This night at Webster was part of two consecutive sold-out shows for Ty and this set was easily one of my best of the year, notable for the force of the crowd causing the photo pit guardrails to be removed because of of the crush.

5. Marah: July 12, 2014 Bowery Electric
The story of Marah is one of redemption and ultimately an extraordinary reinvention. A fairly successful band from the aughts, Marah was dormant for a few years before rising up from the ashes into an eclectic Americana band whose project was to resurrect centuries-old Pennsylvania folk songs into a contemporary format. Add to the band a 10 year old child prodigy on fiddle and a PhD in rural cultures on banjo and you have one of the most unlikely success stories in recent memory. This show at Bowery Electric was a revelation in so many ways, it perhaps best to just listen to the show in its entirety.

6. Woods: November 4, 2014 Death By Audio
This night ended up being my last at Death By Audio. If recording your last show one of your favorite venues ever ends up being one of your favorite bands, then its all good. For this show, Woods reunited with former member Lucas for several songs including the transition jam from his set to the main Woods set that led into “Bend Beyond” — also one of the best single moments of the year.

7. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: October 13, 2014 Baby’s All Right
Their new album came out too late in the year to end up on too many end-of-year lists, but if it had been released in February or March it would be right there. King Gizzard is a band clearly on the rise and their shows are all out ragers. We saw them four times this year but this was the one that really kicked it in and took this band to an entire other level. The opening segue was the one of the best extended pieces of music we heard all year.

8. PUP: February 21, 2014 Cameo Gallery
This is likely the show that I saw this year where the most unbridled energy emanated from the stage. PUP is part of the burgeoning punk scene in Toronto and they toured North America and Europe persistently throughout the year in support of their self-titled debut on Side One Dummy Records. This night at Cameo pre-dated the release of the album and the crowd was a fraction of the fans they’d see before the end of the year, but PUP was simply one full hour of energy, humor and fun and this was one of my favorite nights of the year.

9. The Kickback: October 23, 2014 NYCTaper Unofficial CMJ Day Party, Cake Shop
I invited The Kickback to play our CMJ show because of one song in particular — a version of “Rob Our House” at Pianos that we had seen in June. But when the band played their afternoon set in the basement of Cake Shop, I soon learned that this was far from a one-song band as every track was more compelling than the next. Of course, “House” was the number that blew mostly everyone away when it closed the set, but in reality this entire performance was killer.

Heroes of Toolik: May 14, 2014 Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set

August 28, 2014

[photos by acidjack]

Heroes of Toolik are an art rock band from the New York/New Jersey area comprised of veteran players – Peter Zummo (trombone) is an avant jazzer (ex-Lounge Lizards), while Arad Evans (guitar/vocals) has toured with avant-noise luminaries Rhys Chatham and is a current member of the Glenn Branca Ensemble. Ernie Brooks (bass) was in the original Modern Lovers, while Jennifer Coates (violin/vocals) is an accomplished old style country fiddler with her own band, Jenny Gets Around. What comes together among the group of them is a brand of well-informed rock n’ roll that draws on these influences without over-complicating itself.

This show at Cameo Gallery served as a warmup for Heroes of Toolik’s just-released Aquarium School seven-inch, and found the band previewing that material alongside work from their 2012 debut LP Winter Moon. The band performs with the cohesive, relaxed vibe you’d expect of accomplished musicians, and the stylistic palette of these tunes reflected artists from the Velvet Underground to Zappa and Beefheart to hints (for me) of the Grateful Dead. The band gave us two takes of “Aquarium School”, which was also being filmed for video, the better of which came at the end of the set and is the version recorded here. We recommend you check out their upcoming gig on September 24 at the Zurcher Gallery in Manhattan, which should be a fine combination of an art rock band playing among visual artwork. The gallery is featuring work by Michael Dotson and Irena Jurek from now through just after the date of the show.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones and a soundboard feed from the house engineer, Brendon Clark. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Dead Stars: May 6, 2014 Cameo Gallery + October 17, 2013 Cake Shop – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Dead Stars is one of those bands for whom you naturally root. They make excellent music that lacks any posing or pretentiousness, they are superb musicians, and the trio are generally all around good guys. This is the kind of band that you want to hang out with after the show. And thankfully we’ve been able to do that twice, last October at our annual CMJ Day Party at Cake Shop and earlier this month at a show we presented at Cameo Gallery. In the interim months between these two shows, Dead Stars signed with Old Flame Records who will release their new album Slumber, due out on June 17. The recordings of these two shows feature what amounts to most of the new album in a live format. Speaking of which, Dead Stars will play the CD release show for Slumber at Union Pool on June 19. Thereafter, the band heads out on a two week tour through the East coast and Midwest.

I recorded the Cameo show with the Sennheisers mounted high in front of the soundboard and mixed with a fine feed. The Cake Shop show was recorded with the Sennheisers mounted on the low ceiling in front of the stage and again mixed with a board feed. Cameo is deeper and richer sounding, but has some boominess, while Cake Shop is very upfront but perhaps a little thinner than Cameo. Both are excellent recordings in their own right. Enjoy!

PUP: February 21, 2014 Cameo Gallery – Flac/MP3/Streaming

PUP
(still from this video)

The Toronto punk scene is one of the current hotbeds for music, and PUP is the latest band to emerge internationally. PUP won the CBC Best New Artist award in 2013, and the band recently signed to legendary US indie Side One Dummy Records. The band returned from a tour of Britain where they headlined at the NME Awards, and began another tour with a headlining show at Cameo Gallery on Friday night. As we reported back in October, this is not a band to miss. The band’s energy was at max throughout the set, as they rifled through a set of material from their album, one old request, and two punk covers. The band’s cover of Jay Reatard’s “My Shadow” made a bit of a splash on the web this month and the live version was as powerful as expected, but it was the surprise encore of the Dead Kennedys’ “Too Drunk To Fuck” that impressed with its humor and faithfulness to the original. We’re streaming that below. PUP’s current tour starts out West, crosses the US and lands in SXSW before coming East. PUP will play the Mercury Lounge on March 25. The album will be released on April 8.

We recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted high in front of the board and mixed with a fine matrix feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Hunters: October 15, 2013 Oh My Rockness CMJ Show, Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Brooklyn band Hunters grab your eye right away, thanks to lead vocalist Isabel Almeida’s shock-pink hair and hyperkinetic onstage manner. What holds your interest are their songs, which you mind find yourself humming long after you’re back on the street. This Oh My Rockness CMJ show at Cameo Gallery gave the band headlining status, and they made the most of it, leading us through a rapid-fire set consisting of songs from their eponymous debut album and their underrated Hands on Fire EP from 2011. The night had run long, but Hunters had saved more than enough energy to deliver an excellent set, Almeida and vocalist-guitarist Derek Watson’s vocals coasting on a bed of fuzzed-out guitars. If the measure of a good CMJ show is actually being able to remember what you saw a week or even a single night later, Hunters should count this show a win. You don’t soon forget the experience of seeing them.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from well-known local sound engineer Gary Atturio, combined with Schoeps MK4V microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

PUP: October 15, 2013 Oh My Rockness CMJ Show, Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Toronto band PUP are one of the latest bands to cement that city’s status as one of the global epicenters of modern punk. From breaking bands like METZ to well established acts like Fucked Up, the scene continues to be fertile ground for vital music of the harder-edged variety. Straight from the kickoff track “Lionheart”, from their self-titled debut, PUP’s set at the Oh My Rockness CMJ show at Cameo Gallery put them on a lot of fans’ radar screens. Making the most of their time, the band barely took a breather between songs as they delivered rapid-fire doses of their hook-laden, head-bobbing tunes like “Back Against the Wall” and “Lionheart”. But it was the set closer, “Reservoir” that really sealed the deal. It’s one of those songs that spins standard young-punk fare and takes it to a darker, more reflective place, and it was a mature, powerful way to end the night.

I read in an interview that the album’s producer, veteran Dave Schiffman (responsible for, among others, records by Cass McCombs, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Mars Volta) wanted the record to sound “like the best show the band had ever played.” I haven’t seen the band before, so I can’t vouch as to whether this is their “best show”. But I think, after hearing this, it’ll be hard to hear this and not give the record a spin.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the other recordings from this night, with Schoeps MK4V cardiod mics and a soundboard feed of the house mix by engineer Gary Atturio. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Ovlov: October 15, 2013 Oh My Rockness CMJ Show, Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

October 30, 2013

It’s always gratifying when you run into a friend at a show that you didn’t plan to see, and their first reaction to the band you came to see is “holy shit, these guys are good”. The Connecticut band Ovlov, comprised of three brothers, were one of my most anticipated acts of this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, and they brought everything they had for this Oh My Rockness-sponsored set at Cameo Gallery. For those who didn’t already know how good they were, they surprised them.

Ovlov synthesizes influences from a number of big-time ’90s touchstones, the most obvious being Dinosaur Jr., abetted by vocalist Steve Hartlett’s incredible resemblance to J Mascis’ vocal delivery. If you closed your eyes, their song “The Well” could almost be Dinosaur Jr. circa 1991. The band’s latest record, Am, doesn’t shy from these influences, nor should it. It’s no accident that Ovlov might well share a record collection with well-loved contemporaries like Speedy Ortiz; Sadie Dupuis does guest vocals on Am. As with any correct CMJ show, this one offered a glimpse into what this band had to offer, and they maximized the punch of their eight-song set, with many Am wonders combined with some slightly deeper cuts. CMJ did exactly what it should for this band — give them a shot at a wider audience. I have no doubt that Ovlov have earned it.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from the Cameo engineer and friend of the site Gary Atturio, plus Schoeps MK4V cardiod microphones ideal for this kind of room. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Stream “The Well” and “There’s My Dini!”

Eidolons: June 30, 2013 Cameo Gallery – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Eidolons Cameo Gallery 6_30_13

Eidolons is a quirky alt-pop band from Portland Oregon, whose catchy music shows influences from 80s Brit pop (Smiths, Cure) to 90s West coast alternative (Shins, Death Cab), but yet sounds very contemporary. We caught them at Cameo Gallery a few weeks back on a Sunday night headlining gig. Their set alternated between tracks from their 2012 album China, and their new album Skyhook which was released in June. The band can change tempo and key on the dime and their talent bodes well for their future — or as the Portland-Mercury described them, “freaky potential”.

I recorded this set in our standard location in this venue and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
