Doug Tuttle: October 25, 2014 Trouble In Mind CMJ Showcase, Rough Trade – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The guitarist Doug Tuttle was one of the principal songwriters in a band we’ve spoken highly of on this site, MMOSS. In 2013, the New Hampshire band ceased to be, and Tuttle began writing on his own, wrestling not only with the band’s dissolution, but the loss of a relationship. Not shockingly, the song cycle he debuted on Trouble In Mind Records last year has a strong undercurrent of sadness running through its dreamy psychedelic melodies. This show, held at Trouble In Mind’s showcase at Rough Trade during CMJ, stuck with that material, and Tuttle’s assembled band proved as crack an outfit as his last group. All of those powers came to bear on the eight-minute “Turn This Love”, which exploded from a brooding first few verses into a spacey extended jam, anchored by the organ sounds that are essential to the band’s overall style and tone. While we’re sorry that MMOSS is no more, Tuttle has more than taken the reins with his new band, and we hope to see more of him in 2015.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the other recordings from the day, with Schoeps MK41 microphones and a soundboard feed from the Rough Trade engineer, Cam. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

MMOSS: August 6, 2012 Knitting Factory – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

We first checked in with the Dover, NH psych rockers MMOSS back in May, when they opened for Woods at 285 Kent. This show at the somewhat more “formal” Knitting Factory in Brooklyn gave the band an opportunity to wow Brooklyn audiences with a significantly more capable sound system, and the results show in this recording. As with the May show, the band played a five song set that ended with the mammoth “War Sux”, though this set swapped in their April single release, “Spoiled Sun”, which became another of our favorites immediately. With the addition of flute to the mix of organs and guitars, MMOSS has a distinctly retro vibe that puts them in good company with many 60s forebears, and their album i is, as we noted before, a collection of instant classics. “War Sux” was even more extended this night than at the last show, giving the band a chance to show off their jamming chops.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and a soundboard feed from the Knit’s engineer, Rob. The sound is excellent.  Enjoy!

MMOSS: May 5, 2012 285 Kent – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

One doesn’t normally think of Dover New Hampshire as a home for neo-psychedelic rock, but MMOSS is the latest of outstanding purveyor of this genre and they call the “Live Free or Die” state home. When Woods invites a band to tour with them, as they did with MMOSS for a month this Spring, its a pretty good clue to us that the band will be a quality outfit. At 285 Kent a couple of weeks back, it was obvious that MMOSS was the real deal. Our first impression, with the two guitarists flanking a female vocalist/flutist, was their resemblance to the excellent Bardo Pond. And this comparison isn’t far off, in terms of the live sound. But MMOSS’s album, the superb i, is a collection of psych-garage nuggets. At 285, the band’s set featured a couple of shorter songs, but MMOSS did stretch it out for a couple of numbers before the too-short set ended with an extended jam. We are streaming “Kitty Sorrow”, a standout track from the album performed to perfection.

I recorded this set in the same manner as those of Woods and Crystal Stilts and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
