Ought: May 8, 2016 Rough Trade NYC

Today, more than any other day. It’s effective as a song, even more effective as a mantra. The Montreal band Ought seem to be living by it well, unafraid to release precocious, ambitious music into the wild without precondition or posturing. Their new album, Sun Coming Down, starts off with a nearly eight-minute song, and that should tell you something about where this band’s collective head is at in terms of what their priorities are. Proudly off-kilter in some respects, but never veering from straight-up playing a good song, Ought are that band you wish your geek friend had managed to actually achieve — something smart, interesting, and also engaging. When singer-guitarist Tim Darcy makes his voice warble in that oh so strange way that he does on “The Combo” and elsewhere, it’s as if he’s making the joke you’re in on. People much older than him might look askance at acting a little silly, but he’s all-in. If you don’t like it, you’re welcome to leave, but there’s no reason for that, really.

This set at Rough Trade focused on Sun Coming Down, and if that album lacks a bit of the exuberance of the debut, it makes up for it with even more ambition. The band’s years on the road have further tightened up the sound of an act that was once a lark among roommates; like many of their hometown brethren, Ought sound like they give a fuck, and whether or not the word “punk” falls into your label for them says a lot about what you think that word means. Darcy’s sing-speak, likened at times to Mark E. Smith, is neither spontaneous nor lazy, calculated to deliver the maximum impact of what he has to say. This Sunday night crowd knew it, too, and the band delivered. By the time their first album’s title track rolled around as the first encore, even the people who had to go to work the next day knew they’d made the right decision. In the end, there’s only today, and you might as well make the most of it.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in our optimal spot in the venue, together with a soundboard feed from veteran engineer Kevin Mazzrelli. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Bambara: February 25, 2016 Palisades

March 2, 2016

IMG_1654

The Brooklyn post-punk band Bambara knows how to make noise. This show at Palisades, to celebrate the forthcoming release of their album, Swarm, this Friday (March 4), proved what those who’ve been paying attention already knew — that this band has the charisma, and the delivery, to take them beyond Bushwick DIY stages. They’ve already had a taste of that, of course, having toured with site favorites METZ and A Place to Bury Strangers, among others. But Swarm, the band’s first professionally-recorded effort, shows this band’s possibilities. It’s a gloomy, late-night sort of effort, sustained by its rhythmic appeal and the band’s dead-on delivery. In the live setting, they don’t hold back, with frontman Reid Bateh anchoring the effort with his considerable onstage charisma while his brother Blaze hammers the drums along to William Brookshire’s bass. This show covered some of the standout tracks on Swarm, as well as favorites from the band’s debut, Dreamviolence. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the band around NYC in the near future, with upcoming gigs at Berlin and Saint Vitus.

I made this recording with Schoeps MK22 open cardiod microphones at the stage lip plus a soundboard feed from Palisades FOH Leeor. While the sound is a little off balance (a tad heavy on bass guitar) it is overall a high quality listen. Stream the full show (minus banter) plus the available tracks from Swarm below as well.

Destruction Unit: October 17, 2015 Ad Hoc Car Wash

I’m pretty sure I can say that Destruction Unit has the best band name of anyone I saw this year. It’s not only catchy in its own right, but describes perfectly the maelstrom of noise that this postmodern Arizona punk band will rain down on you until you either risk your skull in the mosh pit or haul your ass to the exits. Destruction Unit is the kind of experience that’s polarizing, intimidating, and absolutely perfect to close out a show like Ad Hoc’s epic post-CMJ show in a Williamsburg car wash. By the time the band took the stage to close out the evening, the humble PA system was positively shredded, the house team fighting to keep the sound going. The band took things well past the limit, with a long lead-in to the pummeling track “Destruct.” This set stuck entirely to the band’s latest record, Negative Feedback Resistor, their second for Sacred Bones Records, though many of the songs found themselves extended for a few measures. The band was rightly hailed by Newsweek as the best band they saw at CMJ, and it’s hard to argue with that after seeing their live show. Even with the vocals buried under the beating being taken by the PA (you can hear them much better on this recording than you could in the room), it didn’t matter to the crowd, which erupted into a mosh pit early and didn’t let up for the entire, pummeling 35 minutes of this set. If you’re going to make a trip out east to slog your way through a bunch of CMJ shows, you ought to make it count. No question that Destruction Unit did that and more.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the day’s other recordings, with AT 4051 microphones and a soundboard feed. The sound quality is reflective of the setting and the style, and represents it quite well. Enjoy!

Protomartyr: October 17, 2015 Ad Hoc Car Wash

October 23, 2015

This was the week of the overwhelming, PR-driven quasi-festival known as the CMJ Music Marathon, meaning there were hordes of tired concertgoers and touring bands around by the time the week wrapped. Taking advantage of that, and perhaps bringing the vibes of our own scene back to earth were the already-legendary concert promoters/magazine Ad Hoc, who rented out a vacant car wash (and its adjoining parking lot) to put on a sprawling ten-band bill that boasted the best of local and touring acts. This event felt like an appropriate evolution for the neighborhood that once housed the best-known DIY venues of the prior decade: Here you had an unused commercial space converted to creative purposes, albeit this time with plenty of bathrooms, quality (and cheap and cold) beer by the can, and even a couple of food trucks.

If you went to a CMJ event this year, chances are you might have caught Protomartyr, who were all over the place at this year’s fest making the case for their recently-released third record The Agent Intellect. The Detroit band saw some heat from their last album, Under Color of Official Right, but consensus seems to be that it’s this new offering that is going to break them into wider consciousness. That’d be a more than fair outcome, as this thirty-minute, ten-song set showed off the best of their material, including “Scum, Rise!” from their previous record and a decent chunk of the new album. Frontman Joe Casey doesn’t exactly match the band’s sound or words, performing as he does in a weirdly-dapper dark blazer and sunglasses, but beneath that veneer boil bleak, personal tales set against the backdrop of the band’s hometown, such as the signature track “Pontiac ’87”. Though you could see the daylight streaming through behind the band (filtered only by the yellow car wash sign), they held the atmosphere where it needed to be, trapping the nervous energy within the stripped brick walls. Compared to some of their harder-edged peers who would share the stage throughout the day, Protomartyr were a bit more “musical” band than some of the other fare, and that’s part of what makes them special. If this CMJ was “their year,” then I say they’ve earned it.

I recorded this set with Audio Technica 4051 microphones and a soundboard feed from Ad Hoc’s staff. The sound quality reflects the “DIY” nature of the venue, but is still quite good. Enjoy!

Pill: September 3, 2015 Aviv – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Pill were high on my list of experimental Brooklyn bands to see, and it was a treat to catch them on an outstanding bill at Aviv that also included PC Worship and Dope Body (those recordings here and here). Andrew Savage of PC Worship released the band’s debut EP on his Dull Tools label, and that’s as good a vote of confidence as Pill needs to get listeners’ attention. That five-song cycle only hints at what’s possible for this young post-punk band, who also proved at this show that they can draw and keep a crowd. Several of these songs are on the EP, but others aren’t, so go and check out both.

This is one of those bands that doesn’t play nice; their songs aren’t the kind of thing you hum at work or jog to on the treadmill. No, Pill’s vision is best experienced live, with front woman Veronica Torres writhing on the floor as the Ben Jaffe’s saxophone screams along with John Campolo’s guitars. Pitchfork’s review hailed the complex narratives on offer in Torres’ lyrics, and admittedly that’s the harder thing to pick up in the live setting, but what it’s replaced by is the visceral experience of what she put into them. As the show ended with Torres at the center of the floor, bringing the new song “Psychic Nipple”

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones from the center of the balcony and a soundboard feed from house engineer John. The sound quality is like it was in the room, raw and in your face. Enjoy!

The scruffy and sardonic Baltimore post-punk band Dope Body is supposedly named for “an online video the band enjoyed,” but as you watch the shirtless frontman Andrew Laumann contort his sweat-slicked self all over the stage, you have to wonder if the name isn’t a little bit of a self-referential gag.  In fairness, it felt like 110 degrees inside the cozy Brooklyn DIY venue Aviv on this particular night, so showing off the man’s fitness level might have just been a matter of necessity. On firmer ground, I can tell you that this band brings an instant presence to any stage they inhabit, and the way their music combines the heavy noise with just-enough tuneful accessibility only adds to the need to pay attention. They’re several albums in now, with the latest, Kunk, released this month on Drag City. More new songs, as evidenced by the set, are already in the tank. If the band’s previous record, Lifer, earned some (undeserved) commentary about increased accessibility and even the dreaded “grunge” tag at points, there’s no making any mistake about where any of this material falls live.

The band hits extremely hard, Zachary Utz’s guitars scraping against Laumann’s gritty, snarling vocals, as David Jacober pounds the skins in the thick of John Jones’ basslines. The set jumped around the band’s catalog, but it’s hard to deny the brand-new numbers, one unnamed, as well as “Enemy Outta Me” which has been making the rounds on recent sets. The skronky “Hired Gun” might qualify as the band’s most mainstream-approaching single, and it came through well on this night before the one-two punch of the older “Leather Head” followed by Kunk‘s “Old Grey.” The proceedings ended just shy of forty minutes in. By then, we might not all have been as drenched as the band, but most of us had been reminded what “sweaty” rock n’ roll really means.

Dope Body are on tour right now in Europe, and anyone with the opportunity over there ought to catch them at one of these dates.

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!

Antietam: August 21, 2015 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

August 27, 2015
By

IMG_2863

Antietam have had quite a summer around these parts, including a scorcher of a gig opening for Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo) back in May. If you’re seeing them at a show, and they aren’t the headliner, you can almost guarantee that whoever they’re opening for is somebody important. That’s not to say that Antietam doesn’t stand on their own — they do — but they’re one of those long-standing acts whose consistency and goodwill toward others tends to put them among really, really cool friends. In the case of this show, frontwoman Tara Key has collaborated with Rick Rizzo (of headliners Eleventh Dream Day) on two records.

On this night at Mercury Lounge, much like their recent show at Cake Shop, the reformed (as of 2004) Antietam proved themselves to be on top of their game, as they shared material from what should be a new album this year or early next. We heard several of those new songs before they launched into “one you might know” — in this case, “1-2-1” from 2008’s Opus Mixtum. That wasn’t all that was there for the regulars (which were plentiful in this crowd), as the band gave us a fist-pumping “(Keep Me) Satisfied” before closing with another promising new one called “Birdwatching.” The veteran outfit clearly has benefited from studio time and previous workouts with this new material on the road, as this set brought to bear this band’s post-punk urgency as well as their ability to just flat-out play. Here’s to hoping for that new record sooner rather than later.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from Mercury engineer Dave Lefcourt, together with Schoeps MK41V microphones. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

B Boys: April 11, 2015 Silent Barn – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

B Boys

Hey there, b boys and b girls. Today, we’ve got a fresh recording of a local Brooklyn trio, B Boys. These guys mine the rich territory of late ’70s post-punk acts like Wire and the Buzzcocks mixed with a more modern garage-y sound. You may have caught them playing out recently at Silent Barn or one of the final shows at Death By Audio last November. They’re in the studio right now recording their first album, but meanwhile they’re also sharing a studio version of “Other Head” on their Bandcamp page. We caught up with B Boys opening up for Tyvek at Silent Barn last month and were surprised at how catchy these tunes are. Their short, to-the-point set will no doubt leave you wanting more, but only after you’ve had the poppy “I Don’t Mind” and the aggro “Psycho” on repeat for a while, not to mention the weird, bendy “Other Head.”

I recorded this set with the AKGs in front of the board combined with a feed from Silent Barn’s Yaman Palak. The sound is as raw as punk rock should be. Enjoy!

Honey: January 28, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

February 12, 2015

Honey are a relatively new band who showed up hungry as the openers for Viet Cong at Union Pool recently. Composed of Cory Feierman on bass/vocals, Dan Wise on guitar/vocals and Will Schmiechen on drums, these guys showed up ready to play, putting even the very talented headliners on notice that mediocrity would not be accepted. The band members’ skill reflects some their resumes; one or more of them have been part of Amen Dunes, Psychic Ills and Stupid Party. Likewise, early invites to play with the likes of J Mascis, King Tuff, Endless Boogie, Crystal Stilts and Destruction Unit tell us that other bands are taking notice.

The band plays hard-charging rock n’ roll with a punk edge, reminiscent of an early, less self-serious Soundgarden.  After choosing the bold leadoff of a cover of Can’s “Connection”, the highlights of this set for me were “Monk”, a pounding number that made a fine lead-in to “Motherfucker Longhair”. Wise got his best showcase on “Enough”, where he was left plenty of room to solo despite the abbreviated set time. Honey expects to have a new LP release in the next couple of months, which should only continue to raise their profile in 2015.

I recorded the set with Schoeps MK4V cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed from house engineer Doug. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Negative Scanner: October 25, 2014 Trouble In Mind CMJ Showcase, Rough Trade – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

IMG_0407

How in the hell does any band get itself across at CMJ? And doubly, how in the hell does a band get through to people as the leadoff act at a day show, on a Saturday? If you’re not fighting hangovers, it’s crowd chatter, and if it’s not those things, it’s garden-variety ennui. At that point, even people who love music are rapidly approaching Peak Music — your little band barely stands a chance.

Luckily nobody told Negative Scanner any of that. The Chicago band gave those of us who showed up early to the Trouble In Mind Records CMJ showcase the kick in the gut we needed to shake off the night before and remember why we were there — for that matter, why CMJ exists at all. A newly-signed band with more or less one 7-inch and some out of print cassettes to their name (plus a 2015 full length on the way), Negative Scanner define the kind of fresh talent that a music festival needs — that music needs — to be relevant. Their sound, raucous but tight post-punk a bit in the vein of early Sleater-Kinney, relies only Rebecca Valeriano-Flores’s aggressive, yelped vocals, but a crack band that clearly not only bothers to practice, but aspires to bigger things. This spirit got captured early on in the band’s first Craigslist ad, recounted by Impose Magazine: “Bands we like include Wire, The Fall, Siouxie and the Banshees, Video, Total Control. NO FLAKES, NO DRUNKS, PRO GEAR, PRO ATTITUDE.” Harsh, maybe, but the attitude paid off. Negative Scanner don’t just get your fists pumping with their energy; they sound good while doing it.

Most of this set is not available in recorded format, other than some live sets you can find floating around on Chicago venues’ bandcamp pages. So take this as a bit of a preview of the greatness to come, and be on the watch for this band in 2015. They’re the best act I hadn’t already heard of that I saw at CMJ.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 supercardiod microphones in our usual spot in the venue, combined with a high-quality soundboard feed from Rough Trade engineer Cam. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
