People of the North: February 24, 2018 Trans-Pecos

February 25, 2018

Oneida’s new album Romance is only a couple weeks away. In preparation, here’s a palette cleanser from Bobby and Kid doing their People of the North thing, with Barry London joining. The trio waste no time in locking into a late-night groove, and follow with forty-five minutes of pulsing organ, synth, and drum rhythms. As Oneida has drifted back into playing more songs and less improvisation live, POTN has stepped in to scratch the itch for those less-structured performances. Hopefully you made it out Saturday night as these POTN shows aren’t all that frequent these days. But whether you did or not be sure to come out next Saturday, March 3 as the mighty Oneida take the stage at Secret Project Robot to celebrate their new one and kick off some March tour dates. Word on the street is they’ll have those Joyful Noise VIP-only colored vinyl copies to make all your friends jealous.

Honey: June 24, 2017 Union Pool (Summer Thunder)

August 24, 2017

Brooklyn’s no-frills, full-throttle Honey are longtime NYCTaper favs. We’re used to seeing the band playing dank DIY spaces, but this outdoor sunshine day show as part of Union Pool’s Summer Thunder series literally throws some light on the band. Crisp and clear upfront sound only manages to highlight their gritty garage punk. Paired up with Sunwatchers in an opening slot for the likeminded Feral Ohms, this is a ferocious set clocking in at under nineteen minutes—perfect for Honey to get the job done. Their new album New Moody Judy hits record stores everywhere via Wharf Cat Records on September 29th and this is just the primer you need.

I recorded this with the mics set up on stage, combined with a board feed courtesy of Union Pool engineer Doug. It sounds excellent. Enjoy!

Robert Millis: May 17, 2017 Park Church Co-op

June 12, 2017

It’s no secret that Sublime Frequencies publishes some of the most interesting, far-flung music and books out there, much of that due to the extraordinarily tireless work of compiler and artist Robert Millis. His latest book is Indian Talking Machine, which chronicles Millis’ hunt for 78s in India in words and pictures. Millis is also responsible for an impressive catalog of music of his own, both solo and with Climax Golden Twins. Most recently, Abduction put out the album The Lonesome High, which includes “Marvelous Fool” and the traditional “The Drowsy Sleeper,” both of which he performed last month at Park Church Co-op. (As an aside, that album also includes “Notes on a Scandal” which he performed a couple years ago at Union Pool.) Also in this set is “Continental,” a Climax Golden Twins song from 2007’s 5 Cents a Piece. The finale, “Abstraction,” is a long ambient piece that perfectly encapsulates the intersection of Millis’ two passions, combining his guitar with, in his words, “a mixture of field recordings I have made, 78rpm record samples, and a few other oddities—put together to interact with my effects and the guitar pick up in interesting ways.”

I recorded this with the room mics set up ORTF at the stage lip, combined with a board feed from Park Church engineer Jasno Swarez. It sounds excellent. Enjoy!

Sir Richard Bishop: May 17, 2017 Park Church Co-op

May 22, 2017

What’s in a guitar? Two years back, Sir Richard Bishop released Tangier Sessions, recorded on a nineteenth-century guitar of indeterminate origin bought in Switzerland. But last week at Park Church Co-op, he was back to his trusty electric and sounding fine. It turns out Bishop sounds great no matter what he’s playing. I daresay he’d conjure some fine tunes out of any instrument you set before him. This set captures him playing a couple off Tangier Sessions (“International Zone” and “Safe House”) combined with some Sun City Girls classics I hadn’t heard him play in a while like “Radio Morocco” and “Space Prophet Dogon.” Topping it off is Bishop’s sweet take on The Beatles “Till There Was You.”

I recorded this with the room mics set up ORTF at the stage lip, combined with a board feed from Park Church engineer Jasno Swarez. It sounds excellent. Enjoy!

Catch Sir Richard Bishop on tour now—still a few dates left!

Eternal Tapestry: October 14, 2011 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

October 18, 2011

[Photo by acidjack]

Portland’s Eternal Tapestry brought their heavy left coast psych rock to Glasslands this past Friday night, performing three long-form compositions of their densely layered guitar, bass, and saxophone (an instrument that seems to be making a big comeback lately!). The first two numbers came from the band’s latest record, Beyond the 4th Door, but the final track, “Doing Your Own Being”, was my personal highlight. With its eastern-inflected sax melody, the song is not only compelling, but rare. Released only on the very-limited-edition box set, Not the Spaces You Know, But Between Them on North Carolina imprint Three Lobed Recordings, this was likely many audience members’ first exposure to this incredible tune. Eternal Tapestry have reportedly made several records by essentially culling down live in-studio sessions, so unsurprisingly, the actual live show is a thing of beauty, as the band reworks and expands upon their songs on the fly. They don’t make it out east as often as we would like, so don’t miss them on the next go round.

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones mixed with an excellent board feed from Josh at Glasslands. As usual for this venue, the sound is excellent!
