Seattle garage rockers Night Beats helmed a stacked bill this night at Baby’s All Right that also featured Frankie Rose’s new project Beverly (that recording to be posted soon pending band approval), Hamish Kilgour’s latest project Roya, and Brooklyn garage punks LODRO. Night Beats had been teasing new songs for a while (including our last meet up with them at Glasslands) and we’ve finally gotten to see the final versions in the form of the songs on their record Sonic Bloom. Much of that material was on display on this night, but the Beats jumped around some, playing some more new ones, plus songs from their self-titled debut LP. Of note from that album in particular were a fiery “Puppet On A String” and the jammed-out set closer “The Other Side”, but the real fun came in hearing new songs like “Dewayne’s Drone” and “Useless Game” come to life. The Beats were joined after the show by the Black Lips on the turntables, and returned the favor the following night when they opened for the Lips at the lame corporate marketing opportunity House of Vans.

This set was recorded by Baby’s All Right head of production Devin Foley using the house multitrack system, whose files I produced and mixed down. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Night Beats: May 8, 2013 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Last time we saw Seattle’s Night Beats they blew us away with their energy and ability to delivery a set of straight-ahead garage rock full of songs you’d remember the next day. This show at Glasslands found them in the familiar spot of opening for another critically acclaimed band — in this case, Iceland’s Dead Skeletons — and Night Beats gave a performance that was every bit the equal of their earlier headlining set at the Knit. Even more special this time around, the band played almost entirely new material from their next record on Trouble In Mind, which drops in August. The band is not ready to share the titles of them yet, but it’s safe to say that if you dig their first LP and EP, the new songs will make you happy. The new material features some excellent guitar work at points, including some pretty serious shredding during the second of the new numbers. Keep an eye out in the coming months for more info on the new album.

I recorded this set with the Naiant X-R microphones mounted in the venue plus a soundboard feed from Jeremy, the night’s engineer. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

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

Seattle’s Night Beats keep it simple. With a sound whose most obvious reference points are Roky Erickson-style Texas psych and garage rock, the three piece’s no-bullshit live show has gained an ever-increasing following. A look at who they’ve toured with – bands like the Black Lips, Black Angels, the Strange Boys and even Roky himself – tells their story pretty accurately. This show at Knitting Factory may have been on a Monday, but that didn’t slow down the dancing or thin out the crowd, who got to enjoy a very strong bill all night long (openers MMoss and K-Holes similarly killed it). The band continue to tour behind their 2011 self-titled debut LP on Trouble In Mind records, and this set featured a lot of it, including their current single, “Puppet On A String”.  Luckily, the band also delved into what there is of a “back catalog”, in this case the 2010 H-Bomb EP, including that track as well as one of my favorites “They Came In Through the Window”. I’m pretty sure I heard some new songs (or at least, ones I couldn’t identify from the EP and album) as well. Though similar in sound, Night Beats eschewed the onstage antics some of their brethren like the Black Lips, which made for fewer flying bodies and beer cans, but one hell of a show.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and a soundboard feed from Rob, the engineer at the Knitting Factory.  In true garage band form, the sound is raw, but an excellent representation of the night and a great listen. Enjoy!
