Creeper Lagoon: August 10, 2017 Mercury Lounge

The relative enjoyability quotient of a band reunion almost always depends upon the reason for the get together. When long-departed groups decide to get together and play shows for the simple fun of it, count us in. Creeper Lagoon had a brief but productive career that petered out in 2004. After being named Spin’s Best New Artist in 1998, the band went on to produce a couple of major label releases before splitting up after a difficult European tour. The 2001 release Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday remains the peak of the Creeper Lagoon catalog and the music sounds as vibrant now as it did nearly two decades ago. After the split, all of the band members went on to successful careers and happy lives outside of the music industry. This excellent interview of band founder Sharky Laguana gives all the details, but suffice to say that all of the band member were in a good place when this reunion was contemplated and then announced late last year. After a couple of shows at the Noise Pop Fest’s 25th Anniversary in San Francisco in February, Creeper came to NYC for their first show in 16 years, a one-off at Mercury Lounge with no plans to return.

The excitement of the event was evident in the crowd from the outset as the band interactions will attest. Mercury was quite sold out and Creeper Lagoon’s energy reflected that fact throughout the night. The setlist was a lengthy run through the band’s back catalog with a nice cross-section of material. Universe was well represented as expected. The reality is that this night was exactly the reunion show you would have hoped for if you’re a Creeper Lagoon fan — fun, interactive, energetic, and well paced. If the reactions of the many fans who approached me after the show asking about the recording is any evidence, this document should also be exactly what the fans want.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted in front of the Soundboard and mixed with a superb feed provided by the band’s FOH Kim Griess. This was a rambunctious and happy crowd, although there was a near-fight audible to my left during the encore break. Other than that and some other obvious chatter, the sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

The Night Marchers: March 2, 2013 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Night Marchers slam-packed Glasslands last Saturday for a set of straight-ahead raw punk from veterans of the scene.  The band, anchored by guitarist John Reis, who previously led several bands including Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, and Hot Snakes, finds Reis reunited with fellow Hot Snakes personnel Gar Wood and Jason Kourkonis along with bassist Tommy Kitsos. The result is closer to RFTC’s fun-loving rockabilly-tinged raveups than Hot Snakes’ darker fare — Reis is a consummate showman who shows a knack for big rock gestures and isn’t afraid to have fun with his audience, and The Night Marcher’s songs, even on heavier subject matter, come across more as party-ready than angry.  The San Diego band doesn’t get out to the East Coast all that often, having waited five years to follow up 2008’s See You In Magic with this year’s Allez Allez.  As a result, this crowd came ready for a special occasion, and they got one, with a blistering full hour set that spanned both of their records.  Glasslands has a special energy on nights like these, when there isn’t an inch of the place to move and — even in the middle of winter — you begin to think the walls will start sweating.  For their part, The Night Marchers gave us something worth waiting for, with several of the Allez Allez numbers standing out, including “2 Guitars Sing”, “Fisting the Fan Base”, and “(Wasting Away In) Javalinaville”.  Reis even paused the show to sing happy birthday to a fan. Whoever that guy was, this was a birthday he won’t forget.

hi and lo recorded this set with an excellent soundboard feed by the band’s FOH Nikhil “Mckeel” Ranade as well as our house-installed Naiant X-R mics.  The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Vetiver: September 21, 2012 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Vetiver aren’t the kind of band you usually find at the top of the bill on a Friday night at Glasslands. The Williamsburg club is best known for cutting-edge young rock and wild DJ nights – all good things, but not exactly this band’s style. Vetiver, on the other hand, seems at times to come from a different era, with a measured, melodic 60s-inspired sound that has more to do with Simon and Garfunkel and the Grateful Dead than what’s is trending in Brooklyn right now. They are a grown-up style of band in sound, style and sentiment, and they are outstanding at what they do. It’s a testament to the good taste of both the PopGun Booking team (who run Glasslands) and that of the ATP Festival, where the band was playing the following night, that quality counts for more than trend-following. Like fellow travelers and Sub Pop labelmates Fruit Bats, Vetiver’s music transcends trends and era-specific fixations; while there’s a strong vein of the late 60s going on with the San Francisco band, their melodic, lightly psychedelic sound doesn’t simply stay there. The leadoff track to their 2011 album and current release, The Errant Charm, was one of my favorites of last year, a slow-builder whose anthemic acoustic guitar riff combines with frontman Andy Cabic’s sweet, soothing vocal to create a six-and-a-half minute slice of blissed-out perfection. This show found the band playing to a fully-packed house, and despite the early set time (Friday nights at Glasslands means late-night DJs) they gave us a fantastic 13-song set into the 65 minutes they had. The set focused on Errant Charm material, but they did reach all the way back to their 2005 debut to give us “Luna Sea” and to its 2006 double LP followup, To Find Me Gone for “Idle Ties”.  The band made the most of their encore, too,firing off a faithful rendition of Townes Van Zandt’s “Standin'”.

I recorded this set with Berliner CM-33 cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed provided by Josh Thiel, the head engineer at Glasslands.  The sound quality is excellent.  Enjoy!

Magic Trick: August 16, 2012 Mercury Lounge – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

As avowed fans of The Fresh & Onlys, we were thrilled to get a chance to see their frontman Tim Cohen’s bedroom project, Magic Trick, come to life as a full band for a set at Mercury Lounge. While Cohen’s lo-fi solo efforts have their charms, the songs feel more fully-realized with a real band, outshining even the latest official release, Ruler of the Night. Cohen and the band took a rapidly-filling room through many of Ruler’s new numbers, as well as a few from his older catalog (all of which can be heard on his bandcamp page). Compared to the Onlys, Cohen’s Magic Trick material is a bit more subdued and has less over psychedelic overtones; these songs veer much closer to confessional singer-songwriting than Nuggets-era jams. What hasn’t changed is Cohen’s knack for hooks and compelling songwriting. “Same People” is one of those songs that will stick in your head for days, while “Weird Memory” has a similar appeal to Real Estate’s blissfully diffident stylings. The Onlys have a tour and new record on the way shortly, but Magic Trick deserves a look on its own.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 microphones and an excellent soundboard feed by Kevin of the Mercury Lounge.  The quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Sonny and the Sunsets: August 16, 2012 Mercury Lounge – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

Sonny & the Sunsets don’t make it entirely clear whether they want you to take them seriously. In the “yes” column you’ve got frontman Sonny Smith’s lifelong musicanhood and decade-long history of releasing records, many of which are of estimable quality. Smith’s latest, the aptly-titled Longtime Companion, arrives on 180-gram yellow vinyl and sounds like a well-worn LP you’ve had in your collection for years. An instant old friend, of sorts.

But then, you have to take into account a freewheeling show like their recent visit to Mercury Lounge, where a Smith, calling himself “El Borracho” (“the drunkard”), played a loose, at-times shambling set that offered up antics and anecdotes aplenty. Sonny comes off like a damaged Dylan, married to equal parts Robert Earl Keen and Todd Snider.  Country-rootsy on acid and Jameson, Sonny seemed thrilled to spend a significant chunk of the playing in the crowd, looking at his bemused band members onstage. Smith covered material from the three Sunsets albums, including the standouts “Dried Blood”, “My Mind Messed Up” and “Too Young To Burn”. Smith plays with the fearlessness of someone whose musical career hasn’t always gone easy; much like his music itself, he is raw and compelling. After about an hour of the band’s regular set, Sonny decided to take things into stranger territory, including a lengthy beat-esque piece about aliens. The set closed out with “Love Among Social Animals” and “Planet of Women”. Sonny may have his tongue planted firmly in cheek at times, but that’s ultimately part of his charm. As with his much-talked-about art piece “100 Records” where Sonny made, yes, 100 45s paired with various images, he is willing to take risks, and more often than not, they succeed.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 microphones and a flawless soundboard feed from Kevin, the club’s head engineer.  The sound is excellent, though you will notice the emphasis on the soundboard increasing toward the end as the crowd gets chattier (read: more drunk).  Enjoy!

Fresh & Onlys guitarist Wymond Miles proved his chops as a frontman in his own right at this Glasslands show during the Northside Festival. With this particular show being showcase of some of the most promising acts from Sacred Bones Records, Miles easily put himself in that company with a performance that introduced (or re-introduced) the crowd to his solo material, including his most recent record (and second this year!), Under the Pale Moon.  A downbeat record that tackles some recent tragedies in Miles’ personal life, Miles’ delivery was anything but dour. Although he was technically the night’s resident ambassador of the San Francisco psych-rock scene, Miles’ set carried on the stripped-down immediacy of Under the Pale Moon; a rocker like “Run Like the Hunted” has no space for blissed-out psychedelia. That role was left to the tracks from Miles’ Earth Has Doors EP, “”Hidden Things Are Asking You To Find Them”, “Temples of Magick” and the set’s closer, “Earth Has Doors, Let Them Open”. Miles has obvious gifts as a frontman, both in his command of an audience and his look. With his prolific songwriting ability to go with it, it’s fair to say that Miles is in no danger of being “some dude from that other band” in the eyes of anyone.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones in our usual spot in the venue, plus a soundboard feed.  The results are excellent.  Enjoy!

Sleepy Sun: April 9, 2012 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

The San Francisco band Sleepy Sun brought the full force of their West Coast style of pscyh rock to bear last Monday night, an ideal counterpoint to the darker, heavier style of Brooklyn’s White Hills, who preceded them on the bill (that recording [HERE]).  Playing this show at Glasslands plus a second NYC show at Mercury Lounge the following night to celebrate the release of their third full-length Spine Hits and in an obviously good mood, the band came with amps cranked and ready to rock n’ roll.  From the first notes of the show opener, the chugging “Martyr’s Mantra” Sleepy Sun concocted a dialed-in wall of sound that shook the club to its foundations. Fortunately, the band also knows when to slow things down; tempo changes like “Siouxsie Blaqq” and “Sandstorm Woman” show off a different side of the band and give the band’s songwriting a chance to shine.

Sleepy Sun are easily lumped into the ever-broadening “psych rock” category (I think if you’re on ATP Recordings, like they are, it’s almost a given) on the basis of their love of effects pedals and obvious stylistic nods to the late 60s/early 70s San Francisco sound. But live, it’s hard to miss a more mainstream reference – the mighty Led Zeppelin. Drummer Brian Tice is ferocious on the kit, and his playing gives the swirling guitars a backbone of pure power, such as on “Stivey Pond” and “She Rex”. This band also clearly believes in rocking as a concept; frontman Bret Constantino is an intense frontman (so intense that he nearly destroyed one of the club’s high quality monitors in the process!) and he and his bandmates are the kind of band that could easily command a much bigger room. They’re also much more focused on strong songwriting and pop hooks than some of their contemporaries; Spine Hits could easily be an FM radio favorite, if rock radio still existed, and I’m sure it’ll be in rotation on the appropriate SiriusXM/streaming channels, as it’s one of the band’s best albums to date.  Here’s to hoping we see them in New York again soon… at this year’s ATP NY, perhaps?

I recorded this set with an excellent soundboard feed from the Glasslands head FOH Josh, plus Schoeps MK22 microphones and a very warm Aerco preamp that captured the sound perfectly. Enjoy!

Royal Baths: December 9, 2011 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

[Photos by acidjack]

I have wanted to see Royal Baths for over at least a year now, since this site last attempted to cover one of the band’s New York shows. Last year’s ill-fated attempt was a gig at Monster Island Basement that, let’s just say, suffered from some human failings. But I didn’t care – the band’s debut album on Woodsist Records, Litanies, was one of my absolute favorites of last year. Woozy, dark and catchy as hell, the record sounded perfectly like their hometown of San Francisco, evoking that city’s 60s fixation without being trapped by it. Knowing that this Kanine Records (their new label) party at Glasslands would feature a strong lineup of bands and top-notch sound engineering, I calculated that this would be our chance to capture a memorable set.

I was right.  The band that showed up for this show was lightyears beyond the act we saw a year ago – focused, poised, and powering their way through a number of songs that will appear on their forthcoming record on Kanine, Better Luck Next Life. The new tunes continue in the dark vein of Litanies, but feel a bit tighter, with a tad less of the ramshackle feel that characterized Litanies.  They also offered up some of my favorite tunes from that record, including “Sitting In My Room”, and rolled out a truly bizarre cover – Nina Simone’s “Be My Husband” (I had to Google lyrics to figure that one out, and still had it wrong the first time..)  They closed out with a lengthy psychedelic new number that once again highlighted their musical chops. Clearly, moving to New York was good for these guys.  I can’t wait for the new record.

hi and lo and I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones and a flawless soundboard feed from Josh, the house engineer at Glasslands.  The sound quality is outstanding.  Enjoy!
