Warehouse: June 12, 2015 Rough Trade – Flac/MP3/Streaming

August 19, 2015

Warehouse Live

When the first and most immediate comparison I make with a current band is to the late great Pylon, you know that band has immediately won me over. Warehouse is from the same area as Pylon (Atlanta/Athens) and play the same tight and jittery math-rock that was revolutionized in the early 80’s when Pylon songs like “Dub” and “Crazy” were making waves on college radio. Its heartening to know 30+ years hence that bands still feel this influence, and in the case of Warehouse, actually acknowledge the musical debt. Not surprisingly, all of this is not lost on the Eighties aficionados at Bayonet Records who have signed Warehouse to their fledgling label. At the Bayonet Northside showcase, Warehouse was the first band on the bill and one that certainly caught the early attention of the room that filled quickly when the band began to play. This set is marked by the appearance of five new (with working titles) songs in the eight-song setlist. The band’s only current release is the Tesseract cassette of which three songs were played, and we are streaming “Promethean Gaze” below. Consider this recording an excellent preview of the new album, which is not expected until next year but has the early ingredients to be a stunner. We’ll be waiting for it, certainly.

Warehouse is currently booking Fall tour dates. Keep posted by following them on Facebook.

This set was recorded in the same manner at the Beach Fossils set from this show (Schoeps plus Kam’s feed) and the sound is equally superb. Enjoy!

Chuck Johnson: August 2, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

August 13, 2015
By

IMG_2724

Chuck Johnson has soared in recent years, with three landmark solo guitar LPs this decade alone. The latest, Blood Moon Boulder, continues the corvid-based theme of 2013’s Crows In the Basilica, and has been hailed in some quarters as his finest achievement yet. It’s hard to argue with that analysis watching Chuck perform on a recent Sunday night at Union Pool to a dedicated crew of serious music fans, who huddled around Chuck as he played both lap acoustic and stand-up electric pieces. As is sometimes pointed out, Johnson is a latecomer to solo guitar, having spent much of his 90s career in bands in Chapel Hill, NC (including Shark Quest, Idyll Swords, and Spatula). You wouldn’t know it from the calculated virtuosity of his three records, evident in his mastery of the slide guitar on “Corvid Tactics.” Crows are a clever, calculating bird, able to adapt and learn over time. Their ability for forethought sets them apart — something that might also be said of Johnson, whose pieces have a habit of leading to unexpected places, shifting gears in ways non-obvious but utterly rewarding. As a special treat, Johnson played an untitled new number mid-set, before playing a favorite melody of “A Slender Thread” into “Dissevered” to close things out. Do yourself a favor and check out Blood Moon Boulder as well as Chuck’s previous releases — the live recording is no more than a taste of how good he can sound.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from Kevin Mazzarelli, together with Schoeps MK41V microphones to provide a bit of ambiance. Some noise reduction was used to eliminate DI buzz, and there are a few short bursts of cell phone interference. Overall, however, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: August 2, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

I’ve written and re-written multiple versions of my “review” of the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 10th anniversary tour, most of which eviscerated the blog culture of previous decade where self-appointed know-nothing “tastemakers” wrung bands like CYHSY through the buzz cycle. But the reality is that most of those blogs are long gone — there’s no point in beating a dead horse. The better story here is that CYHSY are still very much alive — albeit with some different personnel. What began as Alec Ounsworth’s semi-solo project has ten years on become essentially the same project as CYHSY is now supplemented live by touring musicians. Last week’s shows at Bowery Ballroom consisted of a run through the band’s self-titled debut album, a half-dozen other numbers and one excellent cover. We caught the Sunday night show, and if the current conventional wisdom is that CYHSY are a band of the last decade, that news didn’t reach the packed crowd who sang and danced throughout the entire show. This kind of enthusiasm is built on quality music and cultivated through grassroots fan connections — the type of old fashioned “hype” that doesn’t rely on some “tastemaker” with a cute domain name spending too much time on a laptop in the parents basement. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will continue this tour internationally throughout the end of August, dates here.

This show was recorded from our usual balcony location at this venue with the Schoeps cards which were mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Wilco: August 1, 2015 Gathering of the Vibes (Bridgeport, CT) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[screenshot from this YouTube video]

Wilco has wowed this summer in a few ways — first with their exceptional Solid Sound acoustic performance (which we captured here), then with the surprise free release of Star Wars, easily their finest album in ten years. Here at Gathering of the Vibes on the Bridgeport seaside, the band built on the momentum they created with their full-album performance of Star Wars back at Pitchfork Music Festival with another full-album run through, followed by some of the band’s best-known songs as well as the rarity “Laminated Cat.” As a special treat, Warren Haynes, he of every single guest appearance at northeastern jam festivals, joined for “California Stars” along with Joe Russo to close things out. But lest you think this was a standard-issue performance, Jeff Tweedy and co., buoyed by the presence of Nels Cline, turned even the older tunes into noisier, edgier renditions than we’ve seen recently, perhaps alienating some of this festival’s core audience, but proving that Wilco is returning to what made Yankee Hotel Foxtrot their true landmark album, and what marks them as so much bigger than being the “dad rock” of their detractors. Star Wars has proven that this band has many more good years ahead, and we’ll be thrilled to be a part of them.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the taper’s section. While distance and being outdoors always impact sound quality, overall this is an excellent effort. Enjoy!

Ty Segall: June 24, 2015 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

July 29, 2015

We’ve already posted two of the shows of Ty Segall’s brief four-show NYC acoustic tour from June (Mercury Lounge and Rough Trade). This night at Baby’s All Right was special because it was the first one — Ty remarked that it was indeed his first ever full acoustic show outside of California. This set was close to the vest as Ty played the show fairly straightforward and tight, as opposed to the Rough Trade show later in the week which was a loose and crazy midnight set with a ton of covers. The Baby’s show featured the premiere of several new songs, but it remains to be seen whether those songs will be released as acoustic or full band numbers. Either way, the new songs are strong and meshed well with older material, particularly the tracks from Sleeper, the title track of which we’re streaming below. But this set was not completely devoid of covers, as Ty and guest Cory Hanson played a sweet version of Neil Young’s “For The Turnstiles”, also streaming below. Ty Segall will return to the NYC area in the Fall with his hardcore/metal band Fuzz for a gig at Bowery Ballroom on November 15.

This set was recorded by House FOH Harrison, who provided a superb live mix of the multitrack. There are also cardioid microphones installed near the lighting rig about 15 feet in front of the stage. In post-production, I mixed the two sources and the results are quite excellent. Enjoy!

Mekons: July 21, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Mekons Bowery neild
[photo by neild]

It shouldn’t be so long between my Mekons concerts. I’ve seen the band five times over 22 years, generally with 6 or 7 years between shows. The last time was a crazy crowded show at Mercury Lounge in 2009, and before that it was 2007 at Gramercy Theatre, 2000 at Bowery, and 1992 at the Marquee. It isn’t like the band doesn’t deliver — each of these shows were lengthy and highly entertaining trips through the band’s entire catalog. Indeed, Mekons shows are legendary for their remarkable ability to keep the audience engaged through not only the musical performances but the hilarious banter. So much so that the Mekons now have a feature film documentary about them called “Revenge of the Mekons“. The success of the film has translated to increased exposure for the band and the result has been a “sold-out” tour that reached the Bowery Ballroom last week. Bowery was indeed packed with a very boisterous and committed crowd who not only interacted with the band but also indulged some of the unpredictable events possible at any Mekons show. Tonight it was Rico Bell’s unfortunate misplaced high kick during “Heaven and Back” that resulted in him completely wiping out Jon Langford’s amp and other assorted pieces of equipment. For any other band, this kind of clusterfuck would be a disaster, for the Mekons it was a slight blip in the show that ended up being fertile ground for even more hilarious banter. But lest our readers believe this show was messy, this was the tightest and most meticulously performed Mekons show I’ve seen. Indeed, NYCTaper uber contributor and huge Mekons fan neild, who has likely seen the band a few dozen times remarked to me after the concert that this was the best Mekons show he’d ever seen. I had little cause to disagree. The band played everything from 70’s era single “Where Were You?” to tracks from the latest album (2011’s Ancient and Modern) and virtually everything in between. I’ve always loved the 2000 album Journey to the End of the Night (saw the tour) and we’re streaming an incendiary version of “Tina” below. The band’s 80s catalog was also well represented and we’re also streaming an excellent version of Sally Timms’ coined 1988 single “Ghosts of American Astronauts”.

I recorded this set in our usual manner at the Bowery — Schoeps cards in the balcony and mixed with an excellent board feed. Bowery legend Kenny really nailed the mix on this night and the result is one of the best Bowery recordings we’ve ever produced. Enjoy!

Last month, we were pleasantly surprised by the addition of Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band to the Northside Festival‘s premier event: Luna’s first NYC show in a decade. Our love for the Moteliers is no secret by now and their late breaking appearance in McCarren Park gave us the chance to soak in some sun and suds with our favorite Philadelphians. Though all the tunes here will be familiar if you’ve been following along this year, the latter three-fourths of the set—”The Rarity of Experience, Parts 1-2,” “High Castle Rock,” and “Harmonious Dance”—is all new material that will appear on the next Solar Motel record due out on No Quarter in 2016.

NYCTaper recorded this set in the same manner as Luna’s set from the same day. There are a couple spots of wind, but none mar the recording and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Forsyth also has an upcoming collaboration with Koen Holtkamp of Mountains called The Island and due out on Trouble in Mind this fall.

AJJ Knit
[screen cap from this video]

Its actually kind of odd that I had not previously seen Andrew Jackson Jihad in their ten years of existence. The band displays a set of influences that could come right off the the pages of NYCTaper — Dead Milkmen, Moldy Peaches and of course the Mountain Goats, among others. Indeed anti-folk legend and old friend of the site Jeffrey Lewis opened this show. The band also now records for one of our favorite labels, Side One Dummy Records. But all was remedied on Friday night at the Knitting Factory. Due to personal plans I arrived late to this show, midway through Jeffrey’s set. When I opened the door to the performance room at the Knit it was hard to even navigate my way to the recording spot as the room was absolutely packed. When Andrew Jackson Jihad took the stage, the crowd became a single force, pogo-ing and shouting the words to every song in unison. This was one of the more animated audiences I’ve seen in quite a long time and the band responded in kind. The set drew from their entire catalog but with a concentration on 2014’s Christmas Island, with more than half of that album included in the setlist. We are streaming a song from that album “Linda Ronstadt” below, along with the band’s crazy encore, where they fit 16 cover songs into a less-than-five-minute mashup. AJJ has a couple of date in the States before they head to Australia for September, tour dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted at the soundboard booth and blended with a feed mixed expertly by the band’s FOH Rick. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

A few months ago, Dead Stars self-released their new single “Calm Punk” to universal praise from some high profile media outlets including Noisey, CMJ, Diffuser and others. It was nice to see this excellent band and trio of good guys finally get some love — we have been onto them for a few years now. They played our CMJ show two years ago and also a criminally under-attended show we put on at Cameo Gallery a few months after that. But truth be told, we had not seen Dead Stars live in over a year and welcomed the chance Friday last at Rough Trade. Although the band was in a supporting slot, the crowd involvement was exceptional — we’d guess a large portion of the audience was actually there to see them. The result was a high energy forty-five minute set of Dead Stars’ 90’s influenced guitar god rock, which also included some fun banter and crowd interaction. We are streaming this set’s performance of “Calm Punk” below. Dead Stars play Rough Trade again on August 1, opening for Lazyeyes.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted inside of the soundboard booth and mixed with an excellent feed provided by house FOH Dustin. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: June 24, 2015 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Gizz Babys (2)
[screen cap from this video]

The recent NYC visit by King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard yielded two very different shows. The standard Bowery night was a fun experience and an excellent performance that we captured in our usual manner. A few night later, the Gizz played a surprise midnight show at Baby’s All Right that was announced the day before and sold out immediately. This late show was a hoot from the start under some very difficult circumstances. The air conditioner at Baby’s was on the fritz for the night and the packed crowd was baking fairly early in the Gizz set. Throughout the show there were buckets of ice poured into the crowd, bottles of water thrown from the stage and some crazy hijinx all around. The set followed in a similar vein to the Bowery setlist with the I’m In Your Mind Fuzz material leading off the night that included several new songs. By the end of the hour-long set, it was hard for anyone to physically continue but the band finished with a rousing “Heaven/Pill” before all collapsed in exhaustion and sweat.

A short time after this show, King Gizzard announced that the band had signed to ATO Records and would release a new album with the label in the Fall of 2015, presumably including the several songs we saw during the NYC shows. The band returns to NYC on September 16 for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

This set was recorded by House FOH Harrison, who provided a superb live mix of the multitrack. There are also cardioid microphones installed near the lighting rig about 15 feet in front of the stage. In post-production, I mixed the two sources and the results are quite excellent. Enjoy!
