Eidetic Seeing: July 9, 2015 The Acheron – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Eidetic Seeing have been a fixture in the Brooklyn underground for a few years now, on the strength of two excellent full-lengths. It’s been a stretch since the band’s most recent, 2014’s Against Nature, so it’s not surprising that this set at The Acheron in “East Williamsburg” featured three new songs to go with a tease of Against Nature’s “K2.” This band succeeds by focusing on the strength of the interplay among the members, which is led by Sean Forleza’s intricate guitar work. If you see the places where they play — Acheron is basically a miniature St. Vitus (a compliment if there ever was one) — Eidetic Seeing seem comfortable in the company of heavy bands, but what they’re doing is much more than “stoner metal” or “psych rock” or whatever tag you want to affix to it. This set was perhaps the most entertaining yet of those we have covered for the site, as Forleza, Danilo Randjic-Coleman, and drummer Paul Feitzinger melded these songs into a single piece whose dynamism couldn’t be denied. We hope to hear these songs and more new material from the band soon!

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in front of the soundboard, with a light amount of soundboard feed to augment the vocals. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Eidetic Seeing: November 27, 2012 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

January 9, 2013

Eidetic Seeing are continuing work into next year on a successor to their first LP, Drink The Sun, and since I last caught up with them at Public Assembly earlier this year, they’ve already made some evolutions in the new stuff. On a night filled with different psych/noise leaning artists, the Brooklyn psych rockers were easily the youngest band on the bill. If it scared them to be opening for Gibby Haynes, Dave Shuford’s latest project and a Japanese guitar god, they didn’t show it.  Among the treats of this 33-minute set was the set closer and a brand new track, “K-2”, along with evolved versions of the new “White Flight” and “Ashplant Blues” that will appear on the band’s forthcoming album. Their last album, Drink the Sun, recently appeared on a few year-end lists despite not even being released this year! Keep these guys on your radar screen in 2013 – there’s more to come.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in the balcony and a soundboard feed from the house.  The board feed was used minimally, as you will notice the keyboards were mixed a bit more loudly than ideal in the feed.  The sound of this set is excellent. Enjoy!

Eidetic Seeing will be at Union Pool again this Friday, January 11.

Eidetic Seeing: August 9, 2012 Public Assembly – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

For fans of heavy, psychedelic, experimental and improvisational rock, the current Brooklyn and NYC scene is an embarrassment of riches. To an illustrious list that includes White Hills, The Psychic Paramount, Oneida, Naam and many others (many of whom have been featured on this site), make sure to include the Brooklyn trio Eidetic Seeing in the canon. I first caught the band in their infancy, when they opened for White Hills at Cake Shop back in 2009. At the time, I was impressed, but clearly the band was just getting started. After releasing an EP that year, they laid down the until-recently vinyl only Drink the Sunin 2011. The absence of the record from the digital realm may have kept Eidetic Seeing a bit under the radar (it’s now available on their bandcamp page, and the vinyl is still featured at local record stores like Earwax and Academy), but they aren’t likely to stay that way for long.

This show at Public Assembly turned out to be an extra-special performance, as the band ran freeform through forty-five minutes of all-new material that they hope to lay down in the studio in the coming months. Several of these songs were newly-rehearsed, giving them a raw, exciting quality and giving the band members a chance to expand upon their ideas in real time. Mostly devoid of lyrics, at least for now, new songs like “Untitler” expand upon and extend the band’s palette, adding free jazz flourishes to guitarist Sean Forleza, drummer Paul Feitzinger, and bassist Danilo Randjic-Coleman’s dense, spaced-out stew. The songs flowed seamlessly from one to the next, with the highlight coming with the mid-set sequence of “Ashplant Blues” and “White Flight”, which gave Forleza a few vocal turns. Keep an eye on the band’s website for future shows in Brooklyn and beyond. These guys will melt your face if given the chance.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones in an optimal spot in the venue, coupled with a light amount of soundboard feed provided by the Public Assembly engineer, Theo. The house mix and room sound in the Public Assembly was outstanding on this night, and it is reflected in this recording. Enjoy!
