At this point chronologically, the Feelies v.3 has lasted almost as long as versions 1 or 2. But what has been consistent is that sound — the methodical, trance-like rhythms providing a backdrop for the melodic and precise guitar work of Glenn Mercer. Another consistent aspect of the band is their commitment to Maxwell’s and Hoboken. When Yo La Tengo came calling offering an opening gig to benefit their shared storm-tattered town, the Feelies were there on Night 3 to play and provide support to that show’s charity — this time the NJ Community Food Bank. The band then proceeded to play a blistering set and perhaps the longest opening gig for a Hanukkah show we’ve ever seen. But the crowd has no complaints, as the Feelies performed songs old and new with a clarity and purpose to behold. We’re streaming the duo of “Raised Eyebrows” and “Crazy Rhythms”, a segue that we’ve left intact. It encapsulated all that is right with the Feelies, ferocious duo-drums and a head-long crash into one of their oldest songs played at breakneck speed until it collapsed into a noise drenched finale of pure bliss.

I recorded this set in the same exact manner as the Yo La Tengo set from this night and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Yo La Tengo: December 10, 2012 Maxwell’s (Hanukkah Night 3) – Flac/MP3/Streaming

YLT Night 3
[screenshot from this video]

While Hanukkah at Maxwell’s is a long-time Yo La Tengo tradition, another of the band’s regular gigs is the WFMU Marathon where YLT plays requests which are invariably eclectic covers. While Night 3 of this year’s Hanukkah was a tremendous show for a variety of reasons, it was one cover that stole the show. This night will forever be known as the “Sister Ray” show. I asked YLT’s long-time superb FOH Mark if he’d ever seen them play the song — they have done a ton of VU covers over the years — and he only remembered one other performance of “Sister Ray”. Perhaps fueled by the guest performances of various members of the Feelies, the band’s set was a scortcher from the get-go. On any other night, the band’s new cover of Neil Young’s “Time Fades Away” would have been the story, it was the night’s last song where the magic reached its peak. This wasn’t a simple walk through one of the Velvet Underground’s most compelling songs, it was a full-on seventeen-minute immersion into the song. Glenn Mercer and Bill Million joined and the noisy axe trio with Ira was a breathtaking display of authentic garage style guitar.

I recorded this show in the same manner at the other nights and the sound is superb. Enjoy!
