Man Forever: June 14, 2017 Brooklyn Music School

June 26, 2017

Its not news to our readers that Kid Millions is one of this site’s favorite musicians, both as a member of site-regulars Oneida and as a solo artist under the moniker of Man Forever. We’ve chronicled Man Forever from their days as a team of drummers, through the addition of accompanying musicians, to its present incarnation. For the latest album, Kid compiled a roster of prime musicians and created a work of great imagination and invention that truly transports Man Forever to it ultimate fruition. Play What They Want (Thrill Jockey) is more than just a collection of Kid’s friends — Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, and Mary Lattimore included — its a realization of a career of the scene’s ultimate percussionist as composer. The album is a musician at the peak of his compositional talents.

For the album’s release show at the most-appropriate setting of the Brooklyn Music School, Kid Millions brought together many of the album’s players (but none of the celebrities) as a profoundly talented orchestra. Among the many players too numerous to list in its entirety, there was the percussion group TIGUE, the harp of Brandee Younger, the vocals of Nina Dante and Nick Hallett, and the lively lead bass of Brandon Lopez. Kid introduces everyone on the recording and rest assured that this compilation of talent is truly remarkable. The band worked through three of the tracks from Play What They Want and one older piece in a well-paced set of material that touched on elements of jazz, prog and drone and highlighted the natural rhythmic talents of its protagonist.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps mounted in front of the stage and mixed with a superb soundboard feed provided by the talents of house FOH Ben Manley. The result is an outstanding capture with depth and clarity. Enjoy!

Dirty Dishes: June 6, 2017 Alphaville

June 20, 2017
By

Since hosting them at our CMJ show a few years back, Dirty Dishes have continued to grow steadily, as Jenny Tuite and her bandmates continue to develop a reputation around their adopted home in New York (via Boston and then California). Following on their 2015 full length, Guilty, the band have released a trickle of new material since. “All of Me,” from last year, kicked off this show at Alphaville, and its heavy, dirge-like sound was an instant favorite. The band wears their early-mid-90s influences proudly, and what they share with those bands is a keen sense of the dynamics at work in that music, and the sense of controlled abandon that made that style compelling in the first place. If this wasn’t the longest show on record, it was more than enough to remind us what we liked so much about this band in the first place, and to leave us hoping for more from them in 2017.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V in a mobile rig right in the middle of the room. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Horse Lords: June 4, 2017 Sunnyvale

June 8, 2017
By


[photo by nyctaper]

Last Summer during a heat wave we hosted a show headlined by Horse Lords at Trans-Pecos and it was a glorious night of cool air and even cooler music. EricPH “found” this band for the site in 2015, but by 2016 their Northern Spy album Interventions put them on the map for all of us. Horse Lords is comprised of four superb musicians with not only music-school skills but the touch and timing to play incredibly intricate music in complete sync with each other. They combine the best parts of prog, jazz and math rock into extended suites in the live setting that inspires repeated listens.

On Sunday night at Sunnyvale, Horse Lords brought out the diehards and there are now quite a few of these enlightened folks. The crowd wasn’t overwhelming, but those who were there were all-in — the band’s peaks and valley and twists and turns had the entire crowd hanging on for dear life. The set was culled primarily from Interventions but also included one extended older cut to finish the set. From my vantage point at the front of the stage, it was a quite an impressive image of four musicians instinctively in tune with each other. Horse Lords are a band not to be missed, and we will continue to follow this outstanding group.

Horse Lords are currently on a short midwest tour which visits Toronto, Cleveland and Chicago beginning tonight through Friday. All dates and venues here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted at the front of the stage and mixed with an excellent board feed. The mix of the two sources compliments perfectly and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band: April 6, 2017 Trans-Pecos

June 1, 2017
By

Chris Forsyth’s appearance at Trans-Pecos a couple months ago heralded that most important of musical happenings: the possibility of a new release. With their latest No Quarter release The Rarity of Experience a proven success win fans, Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band used this intimate stage to show off some of their latest attractions. After hitting the ground running with “High Castle Rock,” we heard three new numbers in a row, including “History and Science Fiction” and “Mistaken the Bottle” (which we first heard at Union Pool back in late 2016) plus a new as-yet-unnamed (to us, anyway) number. When you add in “Dreaming In the Non-Dream I-II,” you’ve got a set chock-full of new material that continues to expand on Forsyth’s unique guitar vision, which blends a rock fan’s appreciation for shredding (he named a song after “Cocksucker Blues,” after all) with a Deadhead’s appreciation for sonic exploration, thematic variation, and little details. It’s always a treat to see Chris and the band, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on what’s next.

I recorded this set with onstage Schoeps MK5 microphones into a warm-sounding Aerco preamp, plus a soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Animal Collective: May 23, 2017 Brooklyn Steel

May 29, 2017
By


[photos by Will Oliver of We All Want Someone blog]

Last year, I wrote about this site’s history with Animal Collective and celebrated the serious rejuvenation of the band’s fortunes. That show at Irving Plaza was our first introduction to the live performances of the Painting With material. We also caught the show later in the year at Terminal 5. In the ensuing months, Animal Collective released two EPs with material related to the album and continued to tour. This Spring saw their return to NYC for a show at the new Bowery Presents venue Brooklyn Steel and last Tuesday’s show was perhaps the most powerful Animal Collective performance we’ve experienced in more than a decade of seeing the band.

This was our first experience at Brooklyn Steel and I was impressed. There’s definitely a nice vibe to the venue, and the sound quality from our vantage point was on point — full spectrum rich sound with no boominess at all. The intensity of the acoustics in the venue served the band well, as Animal Collective provided thundering bass beats to accompany the multi-layered three-pronged sound delivery system. This tour’s version of the band features Panda, Geologist and Avey across the front accompanied by drummer Jeremy Hyman at center rear of the stage. The set featured much of the recent material but also satisfied long-time fans with older tracks democratically selected from their many releases and some deep cuts not heard in years. The sold-out crowd called the band back after a healthy 75 minute main set and we were treated to an extended encore set that closed the night with a lengthy and rousing version of “Summertime Clothes”.

Animal Collective’s tour continues with some June and July shows, all dates [here].

I recorded this set with the Neumann hypercards mounted at the elevated area inside of the soundboard area and with the mics raised high. The amazing sound in the venue and the choice of microphones worked perfectly as this recording is really quite superb. Enjoy!

Widespread Panic: April 21, 2017 Wanee Festival (Live Oak, FL)

May 4, 2017
By

Perennial Southern-rock favorites Widespread Panic have always been better than they had to be. If you go to many festivals that involve like-minded bands, you could be forgiven for getting one bluesy-sounding rock band confused with another. After the deluge of classic rock covers that comes your way, few of these groups really distinguish themselves, but they all get the applause.

Widespread has long been a different animal. Sure, the underlying vein of bluesy-rockness is there, as are some choice covers. But Widespread isn’t just playing the familiar — especially on their best nights, it’s their transcendent playing of both the familiar and their originals that makes them so special. If the Allman Brothers’ “Mountain Jam” or Talking Heads’ “Heaven” is one you’ve heard before, fine, but it’s hard to argue with the Widespread treatment of it, particularly the former. Here at Wanee Festival, Widespread were probably the main draw for a significant portion of the crowd, and they acted like they knew that, playing a finely-honed two-hour set that headed deep into the jam zone during an epic sequence of “The Last Straw”>”Mountain Jam”>”Impossible”>”Big Wooly Mammoth”>”Christmas Katie” and finally “One Kind Favor.” If there’s any upside to the reduced touring of Widespread Panic these days, it’s the fact that it makes each individual show a bit more special.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in a centered “forward of the board” position. If not quite as good sounding as the Trey Anastasio and Bob Weir sets, the sound quality is nonetheless excellent. Enjoy!

Sebadoh: April 22, 2017 Bell House

April 30, 2017
By


[photo by nyctaper]

In the half-dozen times I’ve seen Sebadoh live, I had never experienced a performance as good as their set at the Bell House last week. The band seemed relaxed and focused and worked through an hour-long set of inspired music. Perhaps buoyed by the fact that in this “co-headline” show they were tasked with playing second of three bands, Sebadoh had a few moments of playful banter, but for the most part were all business.

The set was structured to allow each song protagonist to play a mini-set of their material before a changeover. The show began with five Lou Barlow songs before Jason Loewenstein took over on the guitar at centerstage and played six of his songs, before Lou finished the set with four songs. The band released an album (Defend Yourself) and an EP early this decade after an extended hiatus, but this show was a fair representation of all of their material, newer and classic. This show was the last night of a brief five-city tour after the band played just three dates in 2016. If the Bell House set indicates the high quality of the band’s current performances, we hope that 2017 sees more dates for Sebadoh, particularly locally.

I recorded this set with the Neumann hypers mounted at the soundboard rail and mixed with an excellent feed by veteran house FOH Dave. There is one moment of feedback in the first minute, but overall the sound quality of this recording is superb — possibly the best recording we’ve ever made in this venue. Enjoy!

Xenia Rubinos: April 13, 2017 Bowery Ballroom

April 26, 2017
By


[photo from Xenia Rubinos Twitter]

There’s no earthly reason why Xenia Rubinos should not be a household name in the very near future. She is an artist of immense talents as a writer, composer and performer and her art is true. The musical genres that are home to Xenia Rubinos’ exemplary music have been previously culturally appropriated by the likes of well-to-do Ivy League grads, a Smith grad from Connecticut, and a guy from Forest Hills. But as a person of color who has lived the bitter mistreatment of her protagonists, Xenia is in a position to present a necessary point of view at a troubling historical time when authenticity is crucial. The world needs more voices like Xenia Rubinos and her time is now.

In July Xenia Rubinos released Black Terry Cat, her first album for the Anti- label and second overall. The album received an 8.0 from Laura Snapes over at Pitchfork and pretty much universally positive reviews worldwide. In support, she’s toured tirelessly throughout the US and this month saw her triumphant return to NYC.

The Bowery Ballroom show was a special night for Xenia. Not only was it her largest show to date, but it was also her mother’s birthday. Given that her first album was in part a tribute to her recently passed father, it was particularly moving that this performer had a close family connection on such an important career night. The other important participants at Bowery were the crowd, who were both voluminous and dancing throughout, and her two accompanying musicians — longtime collaborator and producer Marco Buccelli who played a variety of drums, keys and effects, and for this tour Jack Hill on bass, moog and guitar. The set began with the opening track from Cat before the trio blasted through a fifteen-song set that fully represented Xenia’s catalog thus far. There were multiple pockets of fans who literally did not stop dancing throughout the entire set and were engaged with the performer throughout. But it was Xenia who was the well-deserved center of attention as she pivoted from keys to bass to solo vocals as an unstoppable kinetic ball of energy. At the end of the hour-long set she was called back for multiple encores — a true affirmation that an artist with integrity and abundant talent will ultimately succeed.

Xenia Rubinos just began an extensive eleven-date tour of Europe in April and May before she returns to the US for a variety of Summer shows, dates [HERE].

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards set up in our usual front balcony position and mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Trey Anastasio Band: April 22, 2017 Wanee Music Festival (Live Oak, FL)

April 24, 2017
By

Though veteran Bob Weir closed out this year’s Wanee Festival main stage in fine fashion, it was Trey Anastasio Band who captured the most emotional highlight. Clearly moved by the death of Butch Trucks, with whom he had played on this very Wanee stage in years past, Anastasio and his band took the fired-up crowd through everything from hard boogie numbers like “Cayman Review” to a funky cover of Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood” to several of Anastasio’s more downbeat offerings. Whatever the feel of the exact moment, Anastasio and his band owned it, with Trey beaming at the front of the stage for much of the set, just as he was brought to tears recalling his time with Trucks and the Allman Brothers. Perhaps most notable about this set to me personally was the energy and inventiveness of it compared to the lackluster Phish set I saw earlier this year; if the full band interplay wasn’t quite what it is with the main band, the enthusiasm behind it was a night-and-day difference. Perhaps it’s not a surprise; most artists, like most people, care about context and place, and this place brought back memories for Trey that no doubt can’t be replicated in a stadium-type setting. Thanks to this set — which ended on a billowing cover of Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused,” Trey and his band made some Wanee Festival memories for many of us, too.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones FOB with my man Fried Chicken Boy. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Chuck Prophet: March 29, 2017 Bowery Ballroom

April 19, 2017
By


[screen shot from this video]

neild reports:
Chuck Prophet is one of those musicians who went from barely-known to me to a perennial favorite in the course of a single song — or really a single riff, as all it took was hearing the opening guitar line from “Sonny Liston’s Blues,” off his terrific 2009 album Let Freedom Ring. Prophet gets described frequently as the “indie rock Tom Petty,” and it certainly fits his vocal style and commitment to old-school rock ’n’ roll, but if anything it sells him short: He combines a heart worn boldly on his sleeve with character observations that are by turns astute and hilarious, sometimes in the course of the same phrase.

This show at the Bowery Ballroom came toward the end of the tour for Prophet’s excellent new album Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins. Live, not only is Prophet’s dry wit given free rein, but the Mission Express, consisting of guitar wizard James DePrato (here playing even more slide than usual), the superb rhythm section of bassist Kevin White and drummer Vicente Rodriguez, and the unbeatable keyboardist/vocalist (and Prophet’s wife) Stephanie Finch, can spread out songs like “Summertime Thing” and “You Did (Bomp Shooby Dooby Bomp)” into loping jams that would be rock radio staples in an alternate universe. I’ve never seen a bad Chuck Prophet and the Mission Express show, and this was among their best, charging along without letup for nearly two hours.

This recording was made with Church Audio CA-14 cardioid mics from lip of the Bowery Ballroom balcony, mixed with a soundboard feed provided by the Bowery’s supremely talented and helpful new soundperson Danielle.

Please pay what you wish for the download (all proceeds other than Paypal and Bandcamp fees go to the artist), and visit chuckprophet.com for all your merch and info needs — I highly recommend subscribing to his email newsletter, which is always a terrific read even if you’re not interested in finding out when he’s coming to your town (though if you’re not, I don’t know what’s wrong with you).
