We were thrilled that recent site favorites Mr. Dream were able to headline our CMJ Day Party this year at Cake Shop. With two Harvard-educated former music journalists in their lineup, Mr. Dream’s SST-and-Pixies-influenced sound reflects the bandmembers’ excellent taste in heavy but melodic music. Their live approach takes a similar long view of what makes a modern punk show successful. Their music is unrelenting and ballsy, but it’s also well-played, and it has a sense of humor. The band has garnered a ton of critical notice for their first full-length, Trash Hit, which has led to gigs with luminaries like LCD Soundsystem and Sleigh Bells. Not content to rest on their Trash Hit accolades, the band has continued working on new material that has slowly trickled out at recent live shows. This set boasted three of those new numbers in a row: “Moneybags” (which we saw debut at the band’s Northside Festival show), “What A Mess”, and “Palace Complex”. They rounded out this six-song set with three of their other can’t-miss numbers, closing out with the tongue-in-cheek “Learn the Language”. We couldn’t have been happier with Mr. Dream to send our crowd off to start the rest of their CMJ night.

This set was recorded in the same manner as the other CMJ 2011 sets, and is similarly outstanding. Enjoy!

Prussia: October 20, 2011 Cake Shop + October 22, 2011 Cameo Gallery (CMJ Shows) – Flac and MP3 Downloads and Streaming Songs

Prussia is a self-described “experimental pop” band from Detroit. With two keyboards, often three guitars, and a range of sound effects to supplement the unique vocals of singer Ryan Spencer, Prussia is at the forefront of the burgeoning Michigan underground music scene. Last week, the band traveled to NYC for CMJ and performed seven times. We were fortunate to have them play at both shows we hosted this year — the NYCTaper CMJ show at Cake Shop on Thursday and the Golden Ratio / BirdDog Promo / NYCTaper show at Cameo Gallery on Saturday. Prussia played in the second slot for both shows, but the early afternoon set time did not detract from their energy or musical prowess. Behind all of the inventive experimental indie is simply five outstanding musicians. Prussia’s third release is their new album Poor English, which is available in a “name your price” format on Bandcamp. Their set included four of the new songs, two of which are streaming below.

I recorded the Cake Shop set in the same manner as all the of the recordings already posted from that day and the sound quality is superb. The Cameo Gallery recording is a mix of the Neumann microphones on a stand in front of the soundboard booth and mixed with a soundboard feed. The room is a boomier than Cake Shop, so that while the sound is quite excellent, its a very different recording from the Cake Shop one. Enjoy both!

Oh-OK: October 22, 2011 Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

Oh Ok Cake Shop
[screen shot from this video]

Oh-OK came to NYC last weekend at the behest of Cake Shop’s Andy Bodor, whose inventive booking is one of the charms of Ludlow Street’s primary intimate venue. The band had performed at the Athens Popfest 2011 earlier in the week in an unlikely reunion and their first show since another one-off reunion in 2005. Oh-OK released two mini-albums in their three years of existence before the members moved on to other projects. The lead vocalist Linda Hopper is perhaps best known for her work with Magnapop, and a former Oh-OK guitarist was Matthew Sweet. Bassist and vocalist Lynda Stipe is also known for her work with Flash to Bang Time and of course as being the younger sister of REM’s Michael Stipe. In 2002, Collector’s Choice issued The Complete Recordings, which encompassed the two mini-albums, some assorted tracks, and a 1984 concert from Athens. The liner notes of that release were written by Robert Christgau, whose description of the band is not-unexpectedly dead-on. Earlier this week, the Athens label HHBTM re-issued a digital version, called The Complete Reissue. At Cake Shop last Saturday, Oh-OK was playful and relaxed and worked quickly through a chronological performance of most of their catalog in a terrific thirty-minute set. The band now includes three young ringers, whose guitar and drum work provided an excellent backup for the two frontpersons, Linda and Lynda, who have aged very gracefully. The music has aged well too, as its simple and almost childlike melodies are instantly catchy and earworm-worthy. I’ve been humming “Such N Such” all week, and its streaming below.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the CMJ recordings from two days earlier and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Hoop Dreams: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

We have covered so many Captured Tracks bands over the years — the label’s roster lines up pretty closely with the tastes of the people of this site. So it was no surprise to us that Hoop Dreams, who so impressed at Glasslands in August, were on Captured Tracks and poised to release their first record. The band has a sound clearly influenced by early 80s Manchester UK — and which sounds quite like Captured Tracks label-head Mike Sniper’s Blank Dogs. Hoop Dreams performed in the third slot at our CMJ show, but their 2pm performance was the first of the day to fill the room. Max Brooks deep baritone vocals are delivered with confidence and are complimented perfectly by the melodic guitar lines and aggressive bass guitar, often supplemented by electric violin. The band performed their only current release, the single “XCPR” along with much of what we believe will comprise their debut album. We are streaming the set’s final track “Jumping Fences”, which finished the show on an energetic high note. Hoop Dreams returns to NYC for a gig at Glasslands on November 12.

I recorded this set in the same manner as all of the other sets from this day and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Arbouretum: October 14, 2011 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

October 28, 2011

[Photos by acidjack]

Thrill Jockey’s band page for Arbouretum describes them as a “taper’s dream”, and they could well be right about that.  With open song structures, a hard-rocking, Southern-informed psych-rock sound an solid dose of showmanship, the band comes off a bit like an updated, thinking man’s version of bands like CCR and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and they play a hell of a good show that doesn’t belie that comparison.  The band took the stage behind a veil of smoke, launching into a brief psychedelic intro before hitting full stride on “False Spring” the leadoff track to their 2009 record, Song of the Pearl.  That led into “White Bird”, the sole song played from their latest Thrill Jockey release, The Gathering.  The musical virtuosity only went up from there, with “Down By the Fall Line” leading directly into “Mohammed’s Hex and Bounty” in a combined 17-minute piece that found the band in top form.  Frontman Dave Heumann puts a lot of thought into his dense, literary lyrics, and (somewhat unusually for an indie artist) actually sings them so you can hear them.  As audience members called out various rarities and covers throughout the set, the band finally obliged with a ripping version of CCR’s “Long As I Can See the Light.”

I recorded this set with my usual mounted setup of DPAs on the center post plus a soundboard feed from Josh, the head FOH engineer at Glasslands. The sound is excellent.  Enjoy!

Widowspeak: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

The curse of being anointed a CMJ “buzz band” is that everyone wants to be seen at your shows, but no one is really listening to the music. We decided to offer Widowspeak a spot on our CMJ bill back in June, after both acidjack and I had seen them perform compelling sets at different shows. They seemed like a natural fit — unpretentious and intelligent indie-rock with roots in multiple genres from multiple decades. Widowspeak makes music for music lovers. I guess its not that surprising then that ten other promoters also booked them, and every “CMJ preview” mentioned them as a “band to see”. As with every band we booked, we’ll add to that Widowspeak is also a “band to hear”. On Thursday, when they performed at the NYCTaper show at 4 pm at Cake Shop they were also scheduled to play shows at 10:30am, 8pm and 11pm that day. So we lucked into getting the band fresh, lively, and in good moods. The set is concise but clearly indicates that the band has grown in confidence and cohesion since we last saw them. We’re streaming “Puritan”, as that track had some extra jump in its step — energy that the band would need later that night.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the previous sets from this show. We boosted the vocals from the board feed a bit more in this recording and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Surfer Blood: April 29, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

Since we first caught them at the Market Hotel back when they were a mostly-unknown Florida band, Surfer Blood have become a bit of an indie staple. And for good reason: Their sound is infectious, upbeat and delivered with a great attitude. After touring the hell out of their breakout debut Astro Coast, the band began writing the new material that eventually became their new EP release, Tarot Classics. Several of those songs were on display at this show, a sellout of the Bowery Ballroom, which the band co-headlined with …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (that recording here). The band were in good spirits, no doubt in awe themselves of how far they had come since a moderately-attended CMJ show less than two years before. Tarot Classics, while only a snapshot, shows that in terms of pop relevance, Surfer Blood have plenty more in the tank. That was evidenced by two followup shows at the Northside Festival, including an opening slot for Guided by Voices.

At the request of Kanine Records, we did not release any Surfer Blood recordings containing Tarot Classics material until the EP was released. We also have two outstanding matrix recordings of the band’s Northside Festival sets that we will offer in the coming days. Thanks to Kanine for their continued support of excellent music and our efforts here at NYCTaper.

Savoir Adore: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

We have in the last several months had the distinct pleasure of experiencing Savoir Adore up close in two very different settings. In June, at their semi-acoustic Vivo in Vino concert, the band was adept at paring down their instruments to perform an excellent set in an intimate setting. At Thursday at our CMJ show at Cake Shop, we saw the full band and all the trappings — Paul Hammer in particular was remarkable at switching between electronics, guitar, vocals and keys, often more than one at a time. The set consisted of three new songs and four tracks from their debut album In The Wooded Forest. We are streaming “We Talk Like Machines”, which featured gorgeous vocals from Deidre Muro. Savoir Adore are poised at this point to take it the next level. The band’s obvious talent, energy and professionalism is a sure thing, and as they finish recording their second album, we expect big things from them in 2012.

I recorded this set in the same manner at the two previous recordings posted from this show and the sound quality is superb.

Tristen: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

October 25, 2011

[photos by Amanda Hatfield]

Tristen released her debut album in February, and her national breakout has seen coverage from NPR, Rolling Stone magazine, Spin magazine, and a performance on Mountain Stage. Inexplicably, Tristen has not hit NYC. We attempted to reconcile that anomaly when we invited her to perform at our CMJ show at Cake Shop. I spent much of the pre-show conversation imploring people not to miss her, and was rewarded when Tristen delivered a superb thirty minute set. She began with a new song, and her set included five numbers from Charlatans At The Garden Gate. Her band (“The Ringers”) included a couple of new players from her last performance in NYC (February at Knitting Factory), but was tight and comfortable with the material. The penultimate number from the set, “Doomday”, featured a killer hook and some of Tristen’s best vocals, and we are streaming it below. After her set was over, I was approached by several people who thanked me for telling them not to miss her set. Perhaps NYC is finally ready for her talent. Tristen goes back on tour in January with a series of East Coast dates opening for Justin Townes Earle.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the White Fence set, and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

White Fence: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

October 24, 2011

White Fence played one of the most impressive shows we’ve seen in all of 2011 — at Bowery in August. So, it was only natural that we would invite them to play our annual CMJ show at Cake Shop, and we were thrilled that they could join the bill. After a long drive from Connecticut where they had played the previous night (see here), the band arrived for their 3:15 pm set time a little weary but ready to go. Tim Presley noted the weirdness of the early set time before immediately launching into the opening two-fer “Mr. Adams” and “Who Feels Right”. Thereafter the gathering crowd was transfixed by some of the tightest and most faithful 1966-era psych-garage rock we have heard in ages. From the balcony at Bowery the band was remarkable, but from a few feet away at Cake Shop it was truly sublime to see Tim and Jarvis trade guitar licks throughout the nine-minute version of “Baxter Corner”. The only disappointment was the brevity of the set that was dictated by our tight schedule. Before departing, the band took requests and then launched into a fiery “Get That Heart” that we’re streaming below. White Fence is truly one of the most compelling bands we’ve seen in quite some time and we expect that the memory of their set at the NYCTaper CMJ show will be a musical highlight we won’t soon forgot.

I recorded all eight sets from our CMJ show in the same manner. The DPA 4021 microphones were attached to a threaded mount on the low ceiling five feet from the stage. We then mixed a soundboard feed, capturing the vocals missing from the “on-stage” rig. The results are indeed superb. Enjoy!

All sets from this show will be posted over the next week.

A large portion of this show was recorded on video by our friends at Bleary Eyed Brooklyn, and we expect to be embedding some of that video synchronized with our audio soon.

The entire show was photographed by several of NYC’s top concert photographers (including Amanda Hatfield’s work in this post), whose photos have graced these pages in the past. We expect to have more excellent photos in the coming days.
