Bardo Pond: April 1, 2017 Knockdown Center

April 10, 2017
By

It was heartening to see The New York Times give such prominent billing to this Bardo Pond show, held at Maspeth’s somewhat-remote but welcoming Knockdown Center this past weekend. If the use of the phrase “noise rock” to describe the band was reductive in extremis, it at least got at the notion that Bardo Pond shows are loud, distortion-drenched, hallucinatory affairs. But give a listen to Under the Pines, which the band played in full at this show to celebrate its release, and vocalist Isobel Sollenberger features more prominently for much of this journey, at least compared to past pairing with the Gibbons brothers and Clint Takeda’s guitar attack. A vocalist is almost always a critical component of a band’s sound, of course, but it feels like Sollenberger is a more confident and featured presence than she’s been at any time in their long career.

We first saw many of these songs at the Three Lobed Sweet Sixteen show we recorded last year, and again at Union Pool in November, and they’ve only gotten sharper and better since. This full-album run through told the album’s story well, demonstrating both its cohesive flow and the diversity of sounds. “My Eyes Out” continues to be one of the more “pretty” songs in the catalog, while “Moment to Moment” continues to establish itself as one of the band’s most vital new long-form songs. In a rare treat (at least, not seen by us since the 2011 Death By Audio show), this set wrapped with the vital combo of “Don’t Know About You” directly into “The Stars Behind.” There’s no new tour information for the band yet, but expect a fun one once they return to the road.

I recorded this set about 10 feet from the left PA stack with Schoeps MK41V microphones and a soundboard feed. The characteristics of the room and the sound being amplified through the stacks (mostly vocals) mean the vocals are a bit more prominent in this recording than would be optimal. Nonetheless, it is an enjoyable listen!

A Place to Bury Strangers: March 3, 2017 Villain

March 16, 2017
By

Two years on from their tour de force performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg and the release of their last album, Transfixiation, A Place to Bury Strangers found themselves at the faux-DIY venue Villain doing what they’ve done best in years past, while looking also to the future. If the controlled chaos of set opener “We’ve Come So Far” took on a different meaning in 2017, it also felt like it took on a greater one. APTBS vets know what to expect from their shows at this point — a blanket of noise anchored by Oliver Ackermann’s guitars (his expertise in pedals comes in handy), almost always at maximum intensity, a delightfully disorienting light show — and their Brooklyn shows reflect the communal vibe among those people.

As it has been a couple years since their last record (though they did just release a new song), I was unfamiliar with several of the (what I think were new) songs played, but the distinction for most of us was minimal. An APTBS show is less about this or that song than the overall experience, the subtle shifts in texture and tempo, the often-dark lyrics that you at-times strain to hear, the relentlessness of Ackermann (in particular) onstage, as he smashes the hell out of his guitar long before the end of the set. Where the last APTBS show found the band playing on the Music Hall floor, this time the band took advantage of Villain’s layout and performed a more electronic-driven closing sequence of four songs from the balcony. When the beats finally stopped, you couldn’t help but feel a little bit lighter, a bit freer. At some point “cathartic” might start to feel like an overused term in these times, but in these first months, it’s still a very accurate one.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed combined with Schoeps MK41V microphones from the audience. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Bardo Pond: November 18, 2016 Union Pool

December 14, 2016

Despite being from nearby Philly, Bardo Pond don’t make it to New York nearly as often as I would like. Or maybe my version of “often” is too frequent. Either way, the band continue to prove their vitality and consistency into their third decade. This show at Union Pool began with one of their more recent favorites of mine, “Kali Yuga Blues” from Peace on Venus, but spread across the spectrum of the band’s career, from the Lapsed classic “Straw Dog” to several brand-new songs that haven’t made their way onto official releases yet.  Of the new ones, it was my first time hearing, “My Eyes Out,” a heavy, relatively fast-burning scorcher of a tune. It’s equally hard to deny the band’s new more exploratory number, “Moment to Moment,” which closed out this show for fourteen mind-bending minutes. If there was any regret about this show, it was that the show’s tight timetable meant that it couldn’t go on longer. Judging by the band’s appearances this year, they are feeling more artistically vital than ever, and ready to prove it. Hope to see them again soon.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from Union Pool engineer Robert (which fades in after about 50 seconds), together with Schoeps MK4V microphones. The only other flaw in the sound is the hiss of the smoke machine, but it’s less a true flaw than “atmospherics.” Overall, the sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Herbcraft: November 13, 2016 Trans-Pecos

November 30, 2016

herbcraft-1

The first time I saw Herbcraft, I had no idea who they were, had barely gotten set up, and had no idea what to expect. Two years later, I can say that that show by the Portland, Maine band remains one of the true gems of my entire recording “career,” and one of the most pleasant surprises I’ve ever come across from a live band period, let alone an opener. The band’s fluid, almost entirely improvisational sets are a thing of cosmic beauty, taking you to that comfortable yet foreign place where your mind and music unite. This set at Trans-Pecos, opening for MV & EE, continued in that vein, as the band played an extended thirty minute improv that even they couldn’t give a name to. This afternoon set required neither fancy lights nor the cover of darkness to take us back to that place, to open our minds and our imaginations to a better world that is not quite our own. Dig in.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the audience and Naiant X-X omnidirectional microphones split onstage. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

MV & EE: November 13, 2016 Trans-Pecos

Matt Valentine and Erika Elder, aka MV & EE, have a prolific output of records — 147 releases, if Discogs can be believed — that spans everything from proper albums to live CDRs to all manner of weird EPs and one-offs. But their most recent release, Root/Void, has been one of the most notable. The band’s first record for WoodsistRoot/Void has some of the band’s most focused songwriting to date, without losing the cosmic, herbal flow that gives this couple such a unique musical voice. The band’s latest isn’t missing the homegrown quality that makes MV & EE feel like a perpetually well-kept secret, but it will probably rope in some newcomers along the way.

This show at Trans-Pecos, presented by nyctaper, was pleasantly devoid of political conversation, though by virtue of existing, its politics were evident. Held on a bracing but sunny afternoon in Ridgewood, a like-minded group of souls gathered around the stage as Valentine and Elder pulled out a jam-heavy (even by their standards) hour-plus long set that covered recent road favorites like “Tea Devil” as well as some of the new album’s best jams. Perhaps the winner on that front would be “Roll On,” which arrived here as a furious, 16-minute squall that flowed into “Love Lemma” to close out the show. It was as “rock n’ roll” as this band gets, and it befitted the moment, as the sun fell in the afternoon sky, casting colored shadows on the two players as they did what they do best.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed, together with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the crowd and Naiant X-X microphones onstage. Matt Valentine was kind enough to mix the sources to his specifications, and the result is a true MV & EE burner.  We are offering this recording in a new format that we believe will benefit both the artists and the fans — our new “official” bandcamp page. The downloads are offered in every format on a “pay what you will” basis, and streaming remains free via the bandcamp page and their handy mobile app. We hope you are as proud of the new effort as we are.

Oneida: July 30, 2016 Secret Project Robot

August 2, 2016
By

IMG_1024

Oneida used to share a building in Williamsburg with the DIY art institution Secret Project Robot — a relationship we documented both at the band’s private studio space, and at a series of farewell shows for the group at that location. While the band and SPR physically went their separate ways, the two remained united in ethos, and Oneida have remained a fixture at SPR events since. This summertime performance — held indoors because of rain — was yet another farewell to Secret Project Robot, which will be relocating from its Melrose Street location in Bushwick to a new frontier this fall. It was fitting, then, that Oneida helmed the sendoff, joined by some of the strongest local bands going, including Guerilla Toss and Honey.

This set was dominated by the band’s “Preteen Weaponry” three-part song, as well as fairly concise versions (by Oneida standards) of “Bad Habit” and “Economy Travel.” As the band’s cryptic sounds filled the repurposed warehouse space, walls covered in trippy 90s-referencing images (Bart Simpson, Ninja Turtles), it was yet another reminder of what spaces like Secret Project Robot mean to the people who frequent them, and what they mean to cities in general. Even if you’re not one of the proud freaks and weirdos (I don’t think of those as insults) who hangs out there, even if you’ve never set foot in a place like it, Secret Project Robot has had an effect on your city, and in a sense, on who you are. Spaces like this are for the true creators, the ones whose utter abandonment of the expected opens up whole new zones of the possible. And as long as there are these spaces, and the people in them, we will be a better place for it.

But a space like Secret Project Robot isn’t a warehouse or an address — it’s an idea. And we look forward to what they will do next.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones and an Aeta PSP3 preamp way up front. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Acid Mothers Temple: April 6, 2016 Knitting Factory

April 14, 2016
By

IMG_2341

Each Acid Mothers Temple performance is special in some way, but this year’s New York jaunt was notable for the arrival of a greater-than-usual number of new songs. In the case of this Knitting Factory show, after a wild “Dark Star Blues in the Dazzling Sky” came the first of those new jams, “Wizard,” a psycho-blues number whose harmonica intro hurtles into a spasm of guitars.

In fact, a majority of this set was built around new material, though of course the usual standouts “Pink Lady Lemonade” and “Cometary Orbital Drive” also made an appearance. If you checked out our recording of the Mercury Lounge show from the day before this one, you were turned on to “Another Nanique Dimension” and “Blue Velvet Blues” as well as the aforementioned “Wizard,” but this show closed on an even more usual note, with a new, chant-driven number that has not made an appearance (at least in recorded fashion) at any other time so far on this tour. The song highlighted the value of the two female vocalists who joined them on this tour, providing a distinctly Eastern, spiritual slant to the end of the show. The band will wrap up this U.S./Canada jaunt on April 18th in Los Angeles, but we can guarantee they’ll be back next year.

nyctaper and I recorded this set with a combination of Neumann KM150 hypercardiod mics and Schoeps MK4V cardiod mics, combined with a soundboard feed from house engineer Rob. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Heaters: September 26, 2015 Alphaville

October 15, 2015
By

FullSizeRender

Considering that Heaters are from Grand Rapids, Michigan, it’s notable how well they conjure a California garage, a Pacific coast parking lot, the beach (and no, I don’t mean Saugatuck, Michigan folks). Schooled in the ways of garage-psych contemporaries like Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and others, the Midwesterners bring their own vibe to the genre, packing a lot into the time of their new record, Holy Water Pool, released by the Brooklyn label Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, a mark of quality among bands of their kind. This was that album’s record release show, at the not-DIY Bushwick venue Alphaville, and Heaters’ tight 39-minute set made as strong an argument for them as a live band as for their record. We heard several of the new songs, including the standout “Detonator Eyes.” You can catch Heaters tonight at their CMJ show at Berlin, on Avenue A. Trust us, you want to do that.

I recorded this set with Audio Technica 4051 cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed from house engineer Theo Klein. The sound quality is quite good for the relatively modest sound system being used. Enjoy!

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard: September 12, 2015 Hopscotch Music Festival (Raleigh, NC) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

October 8, 2015
By

IMG_3321

With the beer flowing, bodies flying, phone cameras silently snapping, and the floor jammed, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard showed everybody at the Pour House how to properly end a festival. The band pulled out all the stops for this set, cloaking themselves in liquid colors as they jammed through a bunch of their latest album, I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, as well as two new songs and one “very old” one — “Cut Throat Boogie,” from their first album, which didn’t make it far out of Australia. As had been the case most of the night at the Pour House, there was a line down the block, and the fans who actually made it inside were hungry to cut loose. The band seemed happy to oblige, cranking things up with the usual “I’m In Your Mind>I’m Not In Your Mind” sequence and not letting up for the full 70 minutes. The band has a new album, Paper Mache Dream Balloon, on the way next October from ATO Records, home to Alabama Shakes and others. Whether any of the new material we’ve been seeing on tour (such as at June’s Bowery and Baby’s All Right shows) will make it (the track list on the front cover might suggest no, if it’s real) is anyone’s guess, but it’s clear that this band remains on the path upward. This was another perfect, blurry end to a Hopscotch Music Festival to remember.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from King Gizzard’s engineer plus the veteran Pour House engineer Jack, together with Schoeps MK41V microphones. The capture is loud and clear, a perfect reflection of the night. Enjoy!

Moon Duo anchored a night of psychedelic and punk music in Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum on the second night of Hopscotch Music Festival. We caught up with the band earlier this year at Rough Trade, but weren’t able to catch this Hopscotch set. Luckily, our man “Rumbleseat” was in attendance, and captured this band in all its glory, against a fractal backdrop that felt right at home in the cavernous CAM. As with the Rough Trade set, Moon Duo moved around their catalog a bit, including material from their latest Sacred Bones release, Shadow of the Sun. We were especially happy to get to hear a live version of “Free Action,” which we didn’t get to see at their recent sets in New York. This performance no doubt set the mood for the heads who stuck around to see Roky Erickson do his thing to finish the night. Clearly, Moon Duo learned some lessons from him, and more.

Rumbleseat recorded this set with two sets of mics, Church Audio CA-11s on the ceiling and Shure SM-57s on stage, combined with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
