Eagulls: October 16, 2013 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

December 9, 2013

The Leeds, UK punks Eagulls aren’t one of your pretty sort of “punk” bands. Having taken a rather bizarre and uncompromising posture from the get-go (they hate “beach bands” and those that incorporate “Afrobeat” among other easy targets), Eagulls bear the burden justifying the attitude in the live setting. Happily, this CMJ New Music Marathon showcase at Glasslands showed off the harder-edged side of the band in a way that suggests they can back the smack talk up. Frontman George Mitchell brings more heat on his own than most entire bands, yowling into the mic like he’s screaming his argument at a long-hated relative in the back of the room. Their short burst of a set wasn’t filled with a lot of conventionally pretty moments, but it made its point. The band has put out an EP on Canadian-based Deranged, a suitable space to share with such acts as Fucked Up and White Lung, but their U.S. full-length comes your way by longtime friends of the site Partisan Records, whose generous eclecticism makes their catalog as unpredictable as it is enjoyable. Look for that release on March 4 here in the U.S. Until then, put these guys on your calendar.

I recorded this set with our usual setup for the venue, with Naiant X-R microphones and a soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
