Dommengang: May 31, 2018 Union Pool

June 10, 2018

L.A.’s Dommengang have returned after a three-year absence with a new record and accompanying live dates. On their second record, Love Jail, the band trades in the instrumental psych typified on Everybody’s Boogie for their own brand of mustache rock. Moreso even than the Sunset Strip vibes Dommengang channel throughout the LP, Love Jail conjures the aura of the 1975 private press LP from Minnesota band Highway. Most of all, Love Jail is a lot of fun, something you can roll down the windows and blast. If you find yourself in southwest next month (or just feel like you need a road trip), be sure to catch the band opening a few dates for Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks.

Holy Sons: August 27, 2015 Saint Vitus – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

September 24, 2015

Holy Sons

Holy Sons is the seventies-inspired heavy rock solo project from Om/Grails drummer Emil Amos. If you’ve ever seen either of those bands live, you’ll have surely noted Amos’ irrepressible energy behind the kit. It’s clear that in his free time that energy translates into some incredibly prolific songwriting—since 2000, he’s released eleven albums as Holy Sons. The most recent two, this year’s Fall of Man and last years’s The Fact Facer, were both released on Thrill Jockey, always an indicator of high quality. For his touring in support of Fall of Man, Amos has tapped Dommengang‘s rhythm section of Brian Markham and Adam Bulgasem. To say this trio rocks is an understatement—these guys could break concrete using only guitar, bass, and drums.

Holy Sons will be back in NYC on October 30 at City Winery as part of a tour with Jay Farrar. That show is sold out, but if you’re lucky enough to have gotten tickets, be sure to show up early for Holy Sons. The full listing of tour dates is over at Thrill Jockey.

I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue, with a soundboard feed from Saint Vitus’ FOH. The results are outstanding. Enjoy!

Dommengang: June 6, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 10, 2015


Dommengang is the latest addition to Thrill Jockey’s roster of some of the finest hard psych bands out there, including Eternal Tapestry, Pontiak, White Hills, Rhyton, and Arbouretum—just to name a few. Celebrating the release of their new record, Everybody’s Boogie, Dommengang stopped by Union Pool this past weekend for a one-off gig to air tracks off that record. Despite frontman Sig Wilson’s insistence that the band hasn’t played together in a year, it doesn’t show as the band immediately syncs into a lockstep groove that doesn’t waver during their thirty-plus-minute set. Underpinning Wilson’s guitar riffage are bassist Brian Markham and drummer Adam Bulgasem. The three are clearly comfortable playing together and after seeing their live set I get the impression that Everybody’s Boogie is one of those albums born of extensive jamming that’s then honed into an album. Favorites here include the chugging “CC,” “Her Blues” (for which the band made a video), and the twangy “Hats Off to Magic.” So far no more live dates have been announced but east and west coast dates are promised in support of Everybody’s Boogie.

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony. Though I got a board feed from Union Pool FOH Kevin, I set the levels a little high and ended up with some distortion so this recording only uses the room mics. However, Kevin’s expertise behind the board and Union Pool’s excellent sound system make for a terrific recording that captures all of Dommegang’s heaviness. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
