The Soft Moon: February 13, 2016 Market Hotel

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.

B Boys: January 28, 2016 Alphaville

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!

Mac DeMarco: August 17, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

September 3, 2015

Mac-Demarco-Bowery2
[photo by Geoffrey at According to G]

Three years ago Mac DeMarco was a newcomer to NYC and a brand-new signee to Captured Tracks records. At the time it was a bit of a puzzler, as the Canadian songwriter did not fit the label’s mold. His guitar-based songs showed very little Eighties influence and his goofy sense of humor didn’t quite fit with the stoicism of Captured Tracks’ other artists. Despite all that, his charm was undeniable and the songwriting was legit. Ultimately, the signing was prescient as Mac has become perhaps the label’s most successful artist on its roster. This Summer, DeMarco released a new EP Another One and as a special treat to his adopted city, Mac played a series of four local shows on consecutive nights at four different venues.

We caught the first of these four shows at Bowery Ballroom. Freshly back from having played Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, the band seemed to have picked up a bug on the cross-country flight as Mac confessed that he was running a fever at the outset of the night. But sick or not, Mac DeMarco delivered a highly entertaining show exactly as we expected. It was a ninety-minute run through the best of his material focusing on the new release (with a few goofy covers) while simultaneously impressing us with his musical ability and songcraft all while seemingly joking around at every turn. We are streaming the opening track from the new EP “The Way You’d Love Her”, and also one of Mac’s classic songs “Cooking Up Something Good”, but make sure to download the entire show at this night was a entertaining ride from start to finish.

Mac has a full slate of tour dates coming up, as he’ll be in Europe through September before returning to NYC for another local date at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on October 10. After that, he’s touring across the US for a couple of months before finishing the year in Australia, all dates here.

Alex Calder: January 11, 2015 Rough Trade – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

January 29, 2015

IMG_0371

Alex Calder has done it the classic Captured Tracks way — starting out as a solo artist working on his own, expanding as his songs grew more complex into a full band. Calder took the stage for Rough Trade’s first anniversary with a crack band that, like the re-released version of his latest album Strange Dreams, took his sound to the next level. Calder’s songs, both from his 2015 re-release Strange Dreams to his earlier work, crackled as live versions, waking this early afternoon Rough Trade crowd up immediately. Calder has an obvious love for many generations and styles of popular music, from ’60s surf and garage to the faster-paced punk and softer-edged pop work that appeared in the late ’70s and early ’80s. An added bonus of this set was what appeared to be some new songs, each well in keeping with the quality of Calder’s current output. We hope to see another record from him this year, if we’re lucky.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 supercardiod microphones and a soundboard feed from house engineer Kyle. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Juan Wauters: October 26, 2014 Panache CMJ Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

I will admit that I just never got the Beets. Back last decade, in an era when every band’s vocals were steeped in reverb and instruments were as “garage” as possible, the Beets took it to the extreme, creating a muddy and harsh sound that some found inspired but that I believed was over the top. I’ll also admit to mailing in the post for my one Beets recording that ended up on the site six years ago. But who knew that buried underneath all of those exaggerated garage effects was an extraordinarily talented singer and songwriter. Juan Wauters solo career has been a revelation thus far. My best comparison would be to a modern day Jonathan Richman — if JoJo was Uruguayan and from Queens. Juan has an ease about his performing style and like Richman, straddles the fine line between sincerity and humor, often keeping it so close to the vest that you’re not entirely sure whether he’s putting you on, or telling you something that you need to hear, or even both. Last year, his debut album on Captured Tracks N.A.P. (North American Poetry) was a collection of home recordings made over a two year period and seems to have just scratched the surface of his talents. We’ve seen Juan Wauters twice in the last month, including this set as part of the outstanding Panache Booking’s “CMJ Hangover Brunch”, where Juan played as a duo in a makeshift “stage” in front of the outer room bar at Baby’s All Right. While the setlist did include four songs from NAP, it also included five terrific new numbers including our favorites “I’m All Wrong” and “Let the Mystery Be There” (streaming below). The quality of the new material bodes very well for Juan’s next release which we expect will be soon, since he just released a video for a new song “Nena”. Juan Wauters will be touring Europe for much of November and December, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards on-stage and mixed with a feed from the PA used to power the vocals and Juan’s acoustic guitar. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Axxa / Abraxas: March 21, 2014 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[photos by acidjack]

The Brooklyn band Axxa / Abraxas, like many of their Captured Tracks forebears, began in a bedroom. In this case, the bedroom of Atlanta native Ben Asbury, who drew influences near his hometown as well as his current home to create his self-titled debut. That record, produced by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods, owes Taveniere’s main project an obvious debt, from the jangly guitars to a Jeremy Earl-style high falsetto vocal on some songs. What’s missed there, but more evident live, is the free-flowing style of the Elephant 6 collective from nearby Athens, Georgia, whose members are as legendary for their live shows as for their far-out styles. Bringing out these tunes live at Baby’s All Right must’ve been no easy task for Asbury and his bandmates, as the record’s slick production style doesn’t necessarily tell all of the band’s story. What you find out in the live setting is that the core of this music is Asbury’s skill at the axe; at age 23, he’s dropping some serious solos. Axxa / Abraxas feels more like a Brooklyn band at the start of their career than the polished crew you hear on the LP, and in many ways, that’s a good thing. One of this band’s greatest assets is youthful exuberance, and you could feel that in the room in a way you can’t on an album. You get the sense that, with more time with this material under their belt, it’ll only get better. Asbury’s best days are yet to come, and it’s going to be a great ride.

I recorded this set with the digital multitrack system at Baby’s All Right, set up by engineer David Lefcourt, together with an onstage pair of Naiant X-X omnidirectional microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Beach Fossils: November 22, 2013 285 Kent – Flac/MP3/Streaming

[a still from unartignyc video of entire show]

Beach Fossils began their set last Friday at 285 Kent midnight show at about 2 am. The band has been on tour since late October, and this was their homecoming party. As these “friends-only” shows tend to be, this night was loose, fun and at times inspired as heck. The show was really two shows — the first half a standard run-though Fossils favorites, including a nice mix of songs from both albums. The second half of the show began with the pairing of “Careless” and “Clash The Truth” — long versions with extended noise jams. It was after the introduction of Chris Hansell and the cover of anti-hardcore band No Trend (“Reality Breakdown”), that things began to get wild. For the balance of the set, the band played extra loose and the final two songs were crazy and cacophonous — and extremely fun and entertaining.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted on the beam ten feet from the stage and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

This set was also recorded on video by UnArtigNYC, and those videos can be found [here].

Minks: August 31, 2013 Captured Tracks CT5 Festival – Flac/MP3/Streaming

In their brief history, Minks has been the quintessential Captured Tracks band. Their debut album By The Hedge was shrouded in mystery — not much was known about the artist and the lyrics were often hidden in deep reverb. Minks also didn’t play many shows. And of course the sound was heavily influenced by the early to mid-80s Brit post-punk. This year Minks has returned with their second album and the band has most certainly evolved. Tides End is a significantly warmer album than the band’s debut, and Minks have taken a higher profile in support for the album. Band leader Sonny Kilfoyle has even done a series of interviews. At the CT5 Fest in August, Minks set was certainly upbeat, as Kilfoyle bantered good naturedly between tracks and the band worked through an excellent set of material from both albums. We’re streaming “Doomed and Cool” which certainly captures a definable New Order influence to the band’s sound and was one of the tightest tracks performed. Minks will play NYC again at Mercury Lounge on November 21.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the two previous sets from this Fest and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Blouse: August 31, 2013 Captured Tracks CT5 – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Blouse CT5 McCabe

We saw what I believe was Blouse’s first NYC show almost two years ago at 285 Kent. The band had recently signed with Captured Tracks and released their self-titled debut album. That album and show were impressive and we expected that Blouse would continue to produce solid music. This month the band returns with their follow-up album and the early returns are all positive. While the debut was very faithful to a mid-80s synth-Brit-pop sound, the new album Imperium stretched out and displays more of the band’s guitar talents. At the center is Charlie Hilton whose vocals and guitar set the tone for the band’s sound. At the Captured Tracks fest last week, Blouse played a 40-minute set with songs mixed between the two albums. Two years since we last saw them, the band has matured and seems tighter and more confident than their debut show. The Imperium material was solid and consistent and we expect that when the album is released next week it will further propel this excellent band forward.

I recorded this show in the same manner as the Mac Demarco set and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Mac DeMarco: August 31, 2013 Captured Tracks CT5 – Flac/MP3/Streaming

September 8, 2013

If he is perhaps the least Captured Tracks-sounding band on the label, Mac DeMarco is certainly one of its most entertaining acts. On the first day of the Captured Tracks Festival (“CT5“) to celebrate the five years that this excellent label has released albums, one of its most successful artists delivered the performance of the day. Mac is certainly talented — his songs are tight and well written and his band is proficient. But the material is enhanced by the performer’s personality, his sense of humor, and his willingness to take chances. As when we saw Mac at Webster in February, one of the highlights of any Mac DeMarco set is when the band lets loose and runs through a semi-tongue in cheek set of classic rock covers. On this night, the improv section did not disappoint and gave us a few belly laughs along the way.

I recorded this set with the Neumann large diaphragm cards mounted high in front of the soundboard cage and mixed with a feed from the board. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
