PC Worship: September 3, 2015 Aviv – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

September 14, 2015

The Brooklyn band PC Worship has been on this site several times this year, in part because they are one of the strongest experimental and improvisational bands in the scene right now. This show at Aviv, a Greenpoint DIY spot that has been killing it with booking lately, felt like this band’s natural habitat. In the searing late summer temperatures, the band took us through a three-song set that included “Rust” from their latest, Social Rust, as well as “Blank Touch.” But the centerpiece came at the beginning — a sprawling “Tides” that took up the bulk of the set, and set a hypnotic, intense tone for the two shorter bursts to come. It’s not the longest PC Worship set we’ve seen, clocking in at under half an hour, but like every time they take the stage, it’s a memorable one. The band is touring Europe right now, but they’ll be back at the Bowery Ballroom on October 13 and 15 with Panda Bear.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from Aviv engineer John, as well as Schoeps MK4V microphones mounted in the center on the balcony. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

PC Worship: December 20, 2014 Baby’s All Right – Flac/MP3/Streaming

PC Worship has been a fixture in the Brooklyn noise and psych rock scene for years, but inexplicably the band has never appeared on this site. We’ve run into band leader Justin Frye in any number of places — whether it as house FOH for 285 Kent, or doing sound for our CMJ shows at Cake Shop, or playing with his friends of Parquet Courts as PCPC. But in December, we saw PC Worship twice in a matter of days. They were in the middle of the bill in our last show at Glasslands and also in the middle of an excellent bill at Baby’s All Right that included Sunflower Bean (recording here) and Fat White Family (coming soon). PC Worship is currently gigging in support of their new and very well received album Social Rust. Each of the two December shows contained four of the nine tracks from the album (plus some older material) and we’re streaming the album’s first song “Odd”. PC Worship will next play locally at Union Pool on January 28.

This set was recorded by House FOH Devin, who provided a superb live mix of the multitrack. There are also cardioid microphones installed on 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!
