The Brooklyn band Hunters grab your eye right away, thanks to lead vocalist Isabel Almeida’s shock-pink hair and hyperkinetic onstage manner. What holds your interest are their songs, which you mind find yourself humming long after you’re back on the street. This Oh My Rockness CMJ show at Cameo Gallery gave the band headlining status, and they made the most of it, leading us through a rapid-fire set consisting of songs from their eponymous debut album and their underrated Hands on Fire EP from 2011. The night had run long, but Hunters had saved more than enough energy to deliver an excellent set, Almeida and vocalist-guitarist Derek Watson’s vocals coasting on a bed of fuzzed-out guitars. If the measure of a good CMJ show is actually being able to remember what you saw a week or even a single night later, Hunters should count this show a win. You don’t soon forget the experience of seeing them.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from well-known local sound engineer Gary Atturio, combined with Schoeps MK4V microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

PUP: October 15, 2013 Oh My Rockness CMJ Show, Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Toronto band PUP are one of the latest bands to cement that city’s status as one of the global epicenters of modern punk. From breaking bands like METZ to well established acts like Fucked Up, the scene continues to be fertile ground for vital music of the harder-edged variety. Straight from the kickoff track “Lionheart”, from their self-titled debut, PUP’s set at the Oh My Rockness CMJ show at Cameo Gallery put them on a lot of fans’ radar screens. Making the most of their time, the band barely took a breather between songs as they delivered rapid-fire doses of their hook-laden, head-bobbing tunes like “Back Against the Wall” and “Lionheart”. But it was the set closer, “Reservoir” that really sealed the deal. It’s one of those songs that spins standard young-punk fare and takes it to a darker, more reflective place, and it was a mature, powerful way to end the night.

I read in an interview that the album’s producer, veteran Dave Schiffman (responsible for, among others, records by Cass McCombs, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Mars Volta) wanted the record to sound “like the best show the band had ever played.” I haven’t seen the band before, so I can’t vouch as to whether this is their “best show”. But I think, after hearing this, it’ll be hard to hear this and not give the record a spin.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the other recordings from this night, with Schoeps MK4V cardiod mics and a soundboard feed of the house mix by engineer Gary Atturio. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Ovlov: October 15, 2013 Oh My Rockness CMJ Show, Cameo Gallery – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

It’s always gratifying when you run into a friend at a show that you didn’t plan to see, and their first reaction to the band you came to see is “holy shit, these guys are good”. The Connecticut band Ovlov, comprised of three brothers, were one of my most anticipated acts of this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, and they brought everything they had for this Oh My Rockness-sponsored set at Cameo Gallery. For those who didn’t already know how good they were, they surprised them.

Ovlov synthesizes influences from a number of big-time ’90s touchstones, the most obvious being Dinosaur Jr., abetted by vocalist Steve Hartlett’s incredible resemblance to J Mascis’ vocal delivery. If you closed your eyes, their song “The Well” could almost be Dinosaur Jr. circa 1991. The band’s latest record, Am, doesn’t shy from these influences, nor should it. It’s no accident that Ovlov might well share a record collection with well-loved contemporaries like Speedy Ortiz; Sadie Dupuis does guest vocals on Am. As with any correct CMJ show, this one offered a glimpse into what this band had to offer, and they maximized the punch of their eight-song set, with many Am wonders combined with some slightly deeper cuts. CMJ did exactly what it should for this band — give them a shot at a wider audience. I have no doubt that Ovlov have earned it.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from the Cameo engineer and friend of the site Gary Atturio, plus Schoeps MK4V cardiod microphones ideal for this kind of room. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Stream “The Well” and “There’s My Dini!”
