Mac DeMarco: August 17, 2015 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Three years ago Mac DeMarco was a newcomer to NYC and a brand-new signee to Captured Tracks records. At the time it was a bit of a puzzler, as the Canadian songwriter did not fit the label’s mold. His guitar-based songs showed very little Eighties influence and his goofy sense of humor didn’t quite fit with the stoicism of Captured Tracks’ other artists. Despite all that, his charm was undeniable and the songwriting was legit. Ultimately, the signing was prescient as Mac has become perhaps the label’s most successful artist on its roster. This Summer, DeMarco released a new EP Another One and as a special treat to his adopted city, Mac played a series of four local shows on consecutive nights at four different venues.

We caught the first of these four shows at Bowery Ballroom. Freshly back from having played Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, the band seemed to have picked up a bug on the cross-country flight as Mac confessed that he was running a fever at the outset of the night. But sick or not, Mac DeMarco delivered a highly entertaining show exactly as we expected. It was a ninety-minute run through the best of his material focusing on the new release (with a few goofy covers) while simultaneously impressing us with his musical ability and songcraft all while seemingly joking around at every turn. We are streaming the opening track from the new EP “The Way You’d Love Her”, and also one of Mac’s classic songs “Cooking Up Something Good”, but make sure to download the entire show at this night was a entertaining ride from start to finish.

Mac has a full slate of tour dates coming up, as he’ll be in Europe through September before returning to NYC for another local date at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on October 10. After that, he’s touring across the US for a couple of months before finishing the year in Australia, all dates here.

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

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!

Ty Segall: June 26, 2015 Mercury Lounge – Flac/MP3/Streaming

We have seen Ty Segall in quite a few different settings, from a tiny DIY club, to two huge punk shows at Webster Hall, to a semi-acoustic night on the Sleeper tour at Bowery Ballroom. All of these various experiences have all added up to the same result — a powerful evening of superb music and a satisfied crowd. When it was announced that Ty would play a series of solo acoustic shows in NYC, we were confident that the nights would be yet another different but equally compelling experience of live Ty Segall. On Friday, he appeared at Mercury Lounge for an early show which would be followed later in the evening with a midnight show at Rough Trade. While the Merc show had fairly early doors, the sold-out show filled up the room quickly when it was still daylight out. This show’s setlist was very different from the one at Baby’s All Right on Wednesday (recording coming soon), and definitely veered towards the more mellow side of this catalog, with Sleeper well-represented. There were also three goofy covers (Devo, Spinal Tap and The Cars), the last of which we are streaming below. The newsworthy part of this set was the fact that Ty played a bunch of new songs on this mini-tour including four on this night. Our initial favorite of the new songs is called “California Hills”, and is a pointed indictment of California suburban life. Ty was joined mid-set by Wand’s Cory Hanson and the two meshed effortlessly, before Ty ended the show solo again. It was a short but sweet set and the performers had a good time themselves, as they messed around a bit with the covers, some cover teases, and one silly mock-up of Ty’s well-known song “Girlfriend” to rank on the guy in the crowd who wouldn’t stop screaming out requests for it. Ty has a few more shows scheduled this Summer out on the West coast, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cardioids set up on a stand next to the soundboard booth and mixed with an excellent feed provided by house FOH David. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

We also recorded the Baby’s and Rough Trade shows and those are coming soon.

Thee Oh Sees: March 20, 2015 Hotel Vegas – Panache SXSW – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Thee Oh Sees Hotel Vegas
[still from this video]

Thee Oh Sees released their new album Mutilator Defeated At Last a couple of weeks ago in mid-May. The reviews have been unanimously positive for this record, and we personally feel that this is perhaps the most fully realized album that the band has released to date. The most insightful review of the album is by our friend Adam Schatz (from Landlady) who, by simply describing in minute detail the album’s first song “Web”, says more about this excellent release on one page than we could in a week. The article is in the Talkhouse and it was published yesterday.

One aspect of the album not discussed by Adam but something that we’ve experienced personally has been the development of the songs in a live setting over the last few cycles of NYC performances. All the way back at the Summer of 2014 at McCarren Park, the band played three new songs that were unknown to us until I asked John Dwyer directly at Death By Audio the following night for the song titles. The three songs, “Web”, “Withered Hand” and “Lupine Ossuary” (originally called “Lupine Dominus II”) were featured at each of those Summer shows in their earliest form. By the time the band came to Bowery Ballroom in November (perhaps our best sounding TOS recording to date), four new songs were added to the rotation, so that the setlist was comprised of half new songs that would ultimately see release on Mutilator.

At South By Southwest, Thee Oh Sees played a ton of shows, but the one we caught was the longest and maybe the wildest set they played all week. The showcase at Hotel Vegas featured all bands under the superb umbrella of Panache Booking, and TOS closed the night well after midnight with an hour-long set in the pouring rain that featured a crazy amount of stage jumpers, people hanging from the trees, and ultimately the finale with the legendary diminutive rapper Bushwick Bill. The set was again heavy on new material (five Mutilator tracks) which were all fully developed and flowed naturally with the older songs. Of the new songs, we’re partial to the early-Floyd flavor of “Sticky Hulks” and we are streaming that selection below.

Thee Oh Sees are currently finishing up the final dates of a long European tour, and there are some announced US shows for the Summer, but we are waiting patiently for the announcement of new NYC dates.

I recorded this show in the same manner at the Wand set from this night. I mounted the Sennheiser Cards underneath the soundboard tent to avoid the rain and mixed with a board feed. There was a lot of chatter under the tent and the board is a bit drum heavy but the mix of the two (70% board) creates a better balance and the result is an excellent recording. Enjoy!

White Fence: October 26, 2014 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

White Fence Dean Keim

Back in October, White Fence was on an extensive tour that criss-crossed through NYC a few times, including during CMJ week when they played a bunch of shows. We were lucky to catch the band twice in less than two weeks at Baby’s All Right. The mid-October recording was featured on the site contemporaneously with the show but the second night at the Panache Hangover Brunch has waited until now. This White Fence set started at about 7 p.m. but certainly felt later as we’d been in the venue since the early afternoon. We’ve already posted two sets from this day (Juan Waters and King Gizzard) and the White Fence set was really gravy for one of the best complete days of music we had all year. White Fence did not replicate the set from earlier in the month as they mixed up the setlist and swapped in several different numbers. But as we had previously experienced, the current White Fence quartet (with Cate Le Bon on guitar) is a unit that has been together for a while now and the performance was tight and energetic. We are streaming “Sandra” below — a near perfect performance that had the band smiling at the end.

This set was recorded by House FOH Devin, 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!

When I saw this wild 12 second clip of a King Gizzard show this week in Australia I was reminded of two things — the crazy show we saw on Halloween and the fact that I had not posted it yet. When I talked about the Gizz in a two-show post a few weeks ago, I noted the amazing energy of their shows coming both from the stage and from the crowd. This clip encapsulates it all, and while its a home show we expect the next time that King Gizzard comes to the US (Spring?) the crowds will be equally as crazed. The band’s new album I’m In Your Mind Fuzz is one of the best of year and as their reputation grows, so too will the crowd size and excitement. The crowd for this Halloween show was, we’ll concede, fueled by excessive amounts of stimulants — to the point where a front-row audience member literally fell over onto the stage, knocking down my mics, Stu’s monitor and guitar pedals. It was a temporary glitch in what was an extremely entertaining and simply fun night and not one I will soon forget.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Tonstartssbandht set from this show and the sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

TSB 338 Moffat
[photo by nyctaper]

In July when we first encountered Tonstartssbandt, their impressive performance led us to promise that the band would be featured often on NYCTaper. Well, here they are again. This set was the opening of a really impressive four-band bill presented by Panache Booking at 338 Moffat for Halloween. The venue is basically a private loft space where several local artists reside and the huge living room became a show space and party room for a pretty crazy night. At the point when TSB played, the room wasn’t quite as full or as manic as later in the night, but the band’s set certainly got the night off to a very good start. This was a shorter performance than the show we saw in July, but Tonstartss once again structured the set as essentially one long segue featuring some of the band’s own numbers interspersed with several unique covers. We’re thankful that the duo provided us with the setlist because we were not previously familiar with a band such as obscure Swedish 60s psych band Pärson Sound, a group favorited by TSB in previous releases and which we are streaming below. Its that kind of love of music that makes Tonstartssbandht performances not to be missed. TSB are currently on tour is Asia and Australia, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted at the front and center of the stage and mixed slightly with a board feed consisting primarily of vocals and kick drum. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: October 13 and 26, 2014 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

November 18, 2014

Australia’s neo-psych phenoms King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard were here in New York during the Summer and made a bit of a splash. We saw them open for Thee Oh Sees at McCarren Park and could definitely see their talents, but conditions (crazy wind, early set time) didn’t allow us to see the band’s full potential. Baby’s All Right gave King Gizzard a multi-show residency back in June, so when the band returned to NYC for much of October it was perhaps fitting that we should capture them at their homebase away from home. Baby’s offers Gizz what they need to thrive — the right sized room, an adoring audience and a welcoming vibe. And thrive they did. The band played multiple shows at Baby’s including several CMJ shows. We were fortunate to capture the first of those October shows, and the last. On October 13, The King Gizzard set was truly what I had hoped to see when I saw the band’s potential back in June. This was a full-on psych-rock assault with dual-lead guitars, dual-drummers and all manner of non-traditional instruments (flute!). The new King Gizzard album I’m In Your Mind Fuzz came out at the end of the month, but two weeks early we got nearly the whole thing, beginning with the tremendous five-song segue that opens the album to also start the show. That mini-set literally never let up in its astounding energy. When the band finally came up for air a good twenty minutes into the set, you could almost hear an exhale from the crowd and feel a collective realization that this band had truly arrived — lots of mouthed wows and head shakes. Gizz was on and the room was electric. The remainder of the set was equally outstanding, including the end of the show which featured two extended jam sessions and finished with the band’s epic “Head On/Pill”.

At the end of the CMJ week, the appropriately named annual “CMJ Hangover Brunch” hosted by Panache Booking featured a completely different King Gizzard set from earlier in the month. This event was conceived as a quieter, more mellow experience and the Gizz played off that idea. The pared down version of the band displayed their talents at singing/songwriting and it was no less compelling than the psych-out aspect of the band. The October 26 set featured only two songs from the new album, the aptly named “Slow Jam” songs. After the set we had a nice chat with band leader Stu MacKenzie, an intelligent and thoughtful guy whose personality is well captured in this excellent piece in Interview Magazine.

King Gizzard is back in Australia and not likely to tour the US again until the Summer of 2015, but those shows will be events not to miss.

I also recorded the crazy Halloween show and that will be on the site within the next few weeks.

Both of these shows were recorded and mixed in the exact same manner by Baby’s FOH Devin. We blended the room mics with his excellent multitrack mix and the sound quality of each is superb, truly capturing the completely different feel of each of the sets. Enjoy!

Juan Wauters: October 26, 2014 Panache CMJ Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Wauters Babys Keim
[photo by Dean Keim]

I will admit that I just never got the Beets. Back last decade, in an era when every band’s vocals were steeped in reverb and instruments were as “garage” as possible, the Beets took it to the extreme, creating a muddy and harsh sound that some found inspired but that I believed was over the top. I’ll also admit to mailing in the post for my one Beets recording that ended up on the site six years ago. But who knew that buried underneath all of those exaggerated garage effects was an extraordinarily talented singer and songwriter. Juan Wauters solo career has been a revelation thus far. My best comparison would be to a modern day Jonathan Richman — if JoJo was Uruguayan and from Queens. Juan has an ease about his performing style and like Richman, straddles the fine line between sincerity and humor, often keeping it so close to the vest that you’re not entirely sure whether he’s putting you on, or telling you something that you need to hear, or even both. Last year, his debut album on Captured Tracks N.A.P. (North American Poetry) was a collection of home recordings made over a two year period and seems to have just scratched the surface of his talents. We’ve seen Juan Wauters twice in the last month, including this set as part of the outstanding Panache Booking’s “CMJ Hangover Brunch”, where Juan played as a duo in a makeshift “stage” in front of the outer room bar at Baby’s All Right. While the setlist did include four songs from NAP, it also included five terrific new numbers including our favorites “I’m All Wrong” and “Let the Mystery Be There” (streaming below). The quality of the new material bodes very well for Juan’s next release which we expect will be soon, since he just released a video for a new song “Nena”. Juan Wauters will be touring Europe for much of November and December, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards on-stage and mixed with a feed from the PA used to power the vocals and Juan’s acoustic guitar. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

White Fence: October 20, 2011 NYCTaper CMJ Show at Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

White Fence played one of the most impressive shows we’ve seen in all of 2011 — at Bowery in August. So, it was only natural that we would invite them to play our annual CMJ show at Cake Shop, and we were thrilled that they could join the bill. After a long drive from Connecticut where they had played the previous night (see here), the band arrived for their 3:15 pm set time a little weary but ready to go. Tim Presley noted the weirdness of the early set time before immediately launching into the opening two-fer “Mr. Adams” and “Who Feels Right”. Thereafter the gathering crowd was transfixed by some of the tightest and most faithful 1966-era psych-garage rock we have heard in ages. From the balcony at Bowery the band was remarkable, but from a few feet away at Cake Shop it was truly sublime to see Tim and Jarvis trade guitar licks throughout the nine-minute version of “Baxter Corner”. The only disappointment was the brevity of the set that was dictated by our tight schedule. Before departing, the band took requests and then launched into a fiery “Get That Heart” that we’re streaming below. White Fence is truly one of the most compelling bands we’ve seen in quite some time and we expect that the memory of their set at the NYCTaper CMJ show will be a musical highlight we won’t soon forgot.

I recorded all eight sets from our CMJ show in the same manner. The DPA 4021 microphones were attached to a threaded mount on the low ceiling five feet from the stage. We then mixed a soundboard feed, capturing the vocals missing from the “on-stage” rig. The results are indeed superb. Enjoy!

All sets from this show will be posted over the next week.

A large portion of this show was recorded on video by our friends at Bleary Eyed Brooklyn, and we expect to be embedding some of that video synchronized with our audio soon.

The entire show was photographed by several of NYC’s top concert photographers (including Amanda Hatfield’s work in this post), whose photos have graced these pages in the past. We expect to have more excellent photos in the coming days.
