We’ve followed Holly Miranda for more than the last half decade, and she’s never let us down. Whether it was at the legendary Maxwells, headlining gig at Bowery, a private show at a wine bar, a night at Glasslands, or a show among friends at Zebulon, Holly Miranda has consistently delivered outstanding performances. Her latest record is a self-titled album that was recorded a couple of years ago after Holly moved to LA and parted ways with XL Recordings. As we noted in 2013, the new album and the artist would find a new home quickly and sure enough Dangerbird Records did just that. Last month at Bowery Ballroom, Holly brought together some old friends (including friend of the site Tim Mislock) and played a too brief support set which included much of the new album, a couple of older tracks and one sublime cover. As always, ultimately the set left us satisfied but wanting more. So, tomorrow night Holly Miranda will join forces with the excellent Hypnocraft and play a show at Manhattan Inn. Don’t miss it.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted in our usual location in this venue. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Holly Miranda: June 2, 2013 Glasslands – Flac/MP3/Streaming

A small record label is going to get very lucky in the near future. After she moved to LA and was released from her contract with XL Recordings, Holly Miranda has spent the last couple of years writing, recording and perfecting a new album. At Glasslands on Sunday night, much of the new album material was on display. From the first notes of the opener “Mark My Words” it was very much apparent that Holly is truly “back”, and as she worked through the set with a full band (including horns) I came to the very inescapable conclusion that the new album is the best music she’s ever written. As the new record is shopped to the appropriate label, my guess is that it won’t be long before someone snaps it up. The songs magnify all of Holly’s strengths — her ability to write and perform everything from blues-based rock to sweet love songs, and many styles in between. We’re streaming “The Only One”, a song that I had never heard before but which struck me instantly with its true beauty. We really could have streamed any highlight, because there were many. Holly Miranda will play again in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on July 17.

We recorded this set with our installed rig (Naiant Cards plus board) and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Holly Miranda: September 12, 2012 Zebulon – Flac/MP3/Streaming

It was two years ago when Holly Miranda spent her last night in NYC before moving to Los Angeles performing for an intimate crowd at the wonderful Vivo in Vino. That show was one of our favorites of the year and such an incredible memorable night — great music, great company, superb wine and a rooftop afterparty to remember. That year of 2010 was a banner one for Holly. Her album The Magician’s Private Library was one of the best of the year and her tour was a triumphant celebration of the album. The Bowery show in particular was another highlight of 2010. But in the last two years, Holly has lived a fairly quiet domestic life while working on her new album through a Pledge Music campaign that has shown the dedication of her fans — the pledge has reached over 200% of the original target. The relaxed pace of the production of the new album has also given the artist an opportunity to share demos, covers, and some obscure nuggets on her Soundcloud page, which has become a must-visit page. On Wednesday, Holly Miranda made a very rare visit to NYC to play a fairly under-publicized show at the intimate Zebulon. I had already committed to recording a show at 285 Kent that night, but left in between sets and brought over my small mobile rig to capture Holly’s set. Fortunately, the timing all worked out perfectly. Holly took the stage with Tim Mislock, a new drummer and saxophonist. With an opener of “Waves”, the two years melted away and it was as if Holly hadn’t left. The following number, her moving Etta James cover was an added gift. The balance of the too-short set consisted of new songs and a couple of covers. The Morphine song “Mary Won’t You Call My Name?” was a raver that got the boisterous crowd to move in unison, and we’re streaming it below. Holly has no current plans to play NYC, but rest assured when she ultimately returns, we’ll be there.

I recorded this set with the DPA 4061 small omnis with the mics attached to a mount in the ceiling of the venue about fifteen feet from the stage. The venue was packed and the crowd was rather chatty, so that this isn’t exactly the best thing we’ve had on the site lately. But its certainly listenable and full of energy. Enjoy!
