We last saw Beach Fossils at what would be our last show at Glasslands, a venue with which we had a long and cherished history before it closed on New Year’s Eve 2014. Prior to that, we saw the band play one of the late-era shows at 285 Kent, another now-shuttered venue with which we also shared much history. So at this point, we would much rather experience this excellent band at a show celebrating something new and on Friday we got the chance. Bayonet Records is the new label founded by Beach Fossils’ protagonist Dustin Payseur and former Captured Tracks General Manager Katie Garcia and their debut Northside Festival showcase was a fine display of just how well we expect this label to succeed. It was a four-band bill (more recordings coming later) that was anchored by this Beach Fossils set. The entire show had a celebratory affair and by the time the Fossils took the stage, the venue was in full-on party mode. Upfront, the fans were crashing and bouncing throughout the set, which featured a fine run-though the band’s catalog, and one new song. A new album is expected in 2016. Unfortunately, at one point the middle of crowd got a bit too boisterous and literally a fight broke out. But Dustin was having none of it, as his stopped the band, pointed out the brawlers and made them hug before finishing the set. The show’s finale was a blistering version of “Daydream” and we are streaming that below.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted inside of the soundboard booth and mixed with a fine feed from house FOH Kam. The overall sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

Beach Fossils: December 17, 2014 Glasslands – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Its comforting to say goodbye to things we love by coming full circle to our earliest experiences. My final show at Glasslands was a wild night from Beach Fossils — a band who’ve played much larger gigs in recent years but who returned to their roots in the final week of the venue. We first saw Beach Fossils at Glasslands as an opener of a four-band bill way back in January of 2010. It was one of their first full band shows ever. Their first career single was “Daydream” and it wasn’t released until February of 2010. That song was performed at the gig five years ago, and that track closed this 2014 set (and its streaming below). In the last five years, the band has released two excellent albums, reached the Billboard Indie charts, sold out Bowery Ballroom and reached several other milestones. Indeed, Dustin Payseur and his wife (and former Captured Tracks General Manager) Katie Garcia recently started their own label Bayonet Records. On Wednesday, it was clear that although this is a band looking forward, this was a night for looking back. Dustin made multiple references to the venue and the band’s history at Glasslands and Beach Fossils played a lengthy set of material from their entire career, not just the newest album Clash The Truth. This was yet another sellout among Glasslands’ final gigs and the crowd was energetic and very animated — bopping along with each song throughout the entire set. Personally, this was a very appropriate send-off to a venue that we’ve attended for nearly eight years — a fun band on a fun night visiting a memorable past. Goodbye forever Glasslands.

I recorded this set with the installed Naiant Cardioids mixed with an excellent board feed provided by house FOH Chris Madden. There is an intermittent hissing noise, which is the smoke machine onstage audible in both the room mics and the soundboard feed. Otherwise, its a superb recording. 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].

Beach Fossils: February 23, 2013 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

The Beach Fossils self-titled first album was a refreshing debut from a band that had at that point been on our radar for a year. It was a well-received 80’s influenced indie-pop album that was fairly straightforward fun. But if you expected the band to make the same album over and over again, you’ll likely be disappointed in the new Beach Fossils album Clash The Truth. Dustin Payseur is a student of music — he’s both a collector of vast quantities of vintage vinyl and a sponge for knowledge. I’ve had both conversations about obscure 80’s music with Dustin and seen the incredible list of songs on his laptop. This is a performer who knows his craft and understands its history. So it should really come as no surprise that Clash is a more mature and focused album than its predecessor. And as with much of the early 80s Brit post-punk that influences this album, it also has a bit of sneer. Fortunately though, much of the band’s fan base seems to understand and accept the band’s admirable growth. On Saturday night, Beach Fossils sold out Bowery Ballroom and delivered a performance that featured much of Clash and a healthy dose of older material. Dustin has integrated two new members into the band and the new material is just gathering momentum live, but overall the band delivered a solid set with many highlights. Beach Fossils are on tour in the East but return to NYC for a show at 285 Kent this Sunday, March 3.

I recorded this set with my new Neumann TLM-102 large diaphragm cardioid microphones from our usual spot in this venue, and mixed with a fine board feed. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
