Friday night’s Woods show at Monster Island was billed as an acoustic duo, but soon evolved into a near full band Woods show. Jeremy and Jarvis were originally scheduled to perform the entire set together, but were ultimately joined by Lucas, and Matt and Alex from Real Estate/Ducktails. The set’s unique nature was further enhanced by the fact that the band performed seven new songs among a 13-song show. Opening with two pieces of new material presented a challenge for the young-ish and packed-in crowd, but after the band began to play in earnest, they received full attention. The crowd was rewarded with a stunning ten-minute “Bend Beyond” (streaming below), which has taken on the role of Woods jam piece during recent sets. The four new songs performed in the middle of the set were quiet minor-chord folk numbers, but thereafter “Born to Lose” (also streaming below), began quietly and developed into a seven minute full band psychedelic jam. The set closed with two familiar numbers, and despite calls for an encore the lateness of the hour required that the band call it a night. Woods will continue with two final shows in their tour with Ducktails, tonight in Philadelphia and Tuesday in Baltimore, before heading to Europe for much of March.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphone mounted on a pole fifteen feet from the stage, and mixed with a feed from the board. There was some minor hiss in the system and in the PA that is evident during quieter moments, but its not distracting to this overall excellent recording. Enjoy!

Oneida: October 29, 2010 Monster Island Basement – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

On Friday night, Oneida moved about 50 feet from their rehearsal and recording space and played a late night set at Monster Island Basement. The show had the intimate feel of an open rehearsal and jam session, as the band started the set with four “new jams” — basically untitled works in progress. While the new songs are consistent in sound with recent material, the final untitled number featured a Zep-like riff and definitely veered more towards metal. About halfway through the set, the crowd bounced to “Up With People” as the first familiar song of the show, and continued through the remainder of the set which ended sometime around 2 a.m. The following night, the band moved upstairs for the 6th annual “Brahloween”, but on this Friday show it was the new and intimate that prevailed.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphones mounted on a pole fifteen feet from the stage and mixed with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
