A Friday night show at Glasslands, setup by PopGun Booking, featured four great bands including Exitmusic, a duo of Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church. This Secretly Canadian band has been on the scene for a number of years, but recently signed to their new label and are slated to release their upcoming EP, From Silence. While we missed Exitmusic during their recent residency at Pianos, the show at Glasslands did not disappoint as they played six songs, two of which we had not heard before. Their first song, “The Sea,” filled the room with a complex, layered sound that immediately had the listener fully immersed. By the last song, a seven minute epic titled “Sparks of Light,” it was clear that Exitmusic has a captivating sound that will, no doubt, continue to evolve with each live performance.

This set was recorded with a pair of Schoeps Cardioid microphones clamped high on a column dead-center in the room. Derek, Glassland’s sound engineer, provided an incredibly well balanced feed which resulted in one of the best mixes I’ve heard from Glasslands. The sound quality is excellent and we hope you enjoy!

Julian Lynch: May 20, 2011 Bell House – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

We last caught Julian Lynch at Music Hall on a freezing cold January night, where he showed off some new songs from his then-forthcoming record, Terra. Since then, Terra has been released and proven another unqualified success, and Julian has had more time to develop the material in the live setting. This show found him opening for fellow Ridgewood, NJ natives Real Estate at the Bell House, a somewhat more cavernous space than the tight-sounding Music Hall. The set followed that January set relatively closely, with a few twists (and without the full 16-minute presentation of this night’s closer, “Travelers”) and included what appeared to be a new song (correct me if I’m wrong) that showed a more rocking side of Lynch. His current plans include some summer tour dates, as well as a planned EP for early 2012. Until then, we hope this live recording will tide you over.

hi and lo recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue with Schoeps cardiod microphones. The wider pattern of these mics picked up more of the room reverberations of the venue, and the Friday night crowd, than are optimal, but after some fairly heavy editing, I think it sounds quite good. Enjoy!

Real Estate was also recorded and will be posted shortly.
