The Antlers: May 19, 2011 Music Hall of Williamsburg – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

After a surprise midnight show a few weeks ago at the Knitting Factory (that recording here), The Antlers came back for a duo of proper hometown performances. The first of these, at the incredible-sounding Music Hall of Williamsburg, had the manic energy and theatricality (complete with billowing stage smoke and a happyface balloon tower) that I have come to expect from triumphant returns by Brooklyn bands in this venue. The Antlers won’t be staying in town long; they are back on the road for festivals on the West Coast at the end of this month, as well as a rigorous tour swing through the U.S. and Canada in June. With the new record Burst Apart now in stores and critically acclaimed, the band are delivering its songs live as if they’ve been playing these songs for years. The set focused heavily on the new material, including the standout first single, the Radiohead-referencing “Parentheses” and one of my personal favorites, “Rolled Together”. Peter Silberman’s voice soared to its usual operatic heights, and the band seems to enjoy sinking their teeth into the more rocking new material. The four-song encore including three of the strongest tracks from their breakout album Hospice – my personal favorite “Kettering,” the narrative masterpiece “Two,” and the set closer, “Wake.” As great as they are, the Hospice numbers didn’t overshadow the new songs; that record, and those songs, are incredible, but Burst Apart, as this show proved, stands on its own – and is possibly the better record to play live, with its denser atmospherics and slightly harder edge. Three albums in, The Antlers are still a young band, and one that, we are sure, will continue to evolve and grow.

We recorded this set from the center of the balcony with the Schoeps microphones on an extension arm lowered toward the stacks, running into an analog preamp to provide natural warmth. The DPA microphones were also used in a small amount to add some atmosphere and room feel to the recording. We are very pleased with the results. Enjoy!

The May 20 show at Bowery Ballroom was also recorded and will be posted shortly.

Yo La Tengo: May 11, 2011 Bell House – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

May 15, 2011

After an epic Tuesday night “Spin the Wheel” show that found Yo La Tengo playing a special “Name Game” first set, the second night kicked off with “I’d Like To Buy A Vowel,” a new wheel item that requires the band to play only songs of theirs that begin in vowels. In other words, the fans got some great music, but compared to having to, say, perform a classic sitcom, it was a fairly lucky and safe choice for the band. The safe moves ended after that, though, as they kicked off with the punked-up “Artificial Heart” that transitioned seamlessly into their more mellow classic, “Autumn Sweater.” From there the band played through the low-key trio of “If It’s True,” “I’m On My Way” and “Alyda” before kicking the tempo back up with the explosive (and rarely played) “86-Second Blowout” from 1992’s May I Sing With Me. After an inspired, noise-drenched “Outsmartener”, the band launched into an insane 14-minute version of “I Heard You Looking” that left it all on the stage. It was hard to imagine a band not finishing an entire show, let alone a set, after such a monster performance, but this being Yo La Tengo, they let us come down easy, wrapping up set one with the subdued Lou Reed cover, “It’s Alright (The Way That You Live).”

In general, I felt like the sequencing of this show was a slight improvement over the previous night, though we have seen so many Yo La Tengo shows in the past 12 months, it is hard to play favorites. Still, the second set of this show felt incredibly cohesive, kicking off with “Walking Away From You,” a 12-minute “More Stars Than There Are In Heaven” and “False Alarm” all presented as a virtually seamless composition. The noisy side of Yo La Tengo has always been my favorite, so this trifecta pushed all the right buttons for me. Set 2 ended with another awesome 23-minute three-song series, of a monster “Big Day Coming” that found Ira in top form on guitar, jamming straight into “Tom Courtenay” and ending with the band’s reimagined version of Beach Boys’ “Little Honda”.

Perhaps feeling sheepish that they hadn’t been forced to play anything ridiculously out-of-the-box during their two Brooklyn shows, for the encore, the band decided to play a mini-set of three songs in their alter ego cover band mode, Condo Fucks. As with the first set, the encore ended on a quiet note, with another May I Sing With Me number, “Detouring America With Horns.” Few bands get the chance to do truly do whatever the want night after night in front of sell-out crowds, and Yo La Tengo have done everything possible to earn it. No matter how many shows you see, there are always new dimensions, new twists, new laughs, and new songs to be impressed and surprised by, and these two nights exemplified that perfectly.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps microphones running into an ultraquiet digital preamp, combined with an excellent soundboard feed. The results are outstanding. Enjoy!

The National at Maxwell’s Revisited – Flac and MP3 Downloads (Two Sources) + Streaming Songs

We believe we over-extended ourselves on the recording of The National at Maxwell’s that appeared on the site last week [here]. Acidjack and I both recorded four tracks at the show, and we combined the eight tracks for that recording. The sound has been equally described as “amazing” and as “compressed”, but ultimately to me it sounds “too busy”. So we’ve decided to simplify the recording, split our sources and offer two separate recordings of the set.

There is a complete review of this show at the original post [here].

What appears below for download are these two recordings, nyctaper: Neumann microphones mixed with a soundboard feed, and acidjack: DPA and Schoeps microphones, four channel audience mix.

The National last played NYC at Terminal 5 in July, a concert we covered for the site. Its hard to imagine that we would next see a band of that stature in Maxwell’s, but the Yo La Tengo Hanukkah shows bring surprises of all sizes. Although we were clued into this appearance earlier in the week (and the Village Voice spread our tweet), it was still pretty surreal to see the National take the stage in front of a hundred or so people. The band and their mini horn section managed to fit pretty comfortably on the stage, and they worked through a shortened version of the standard set. In a brief conversation I had with Bryce before the show, he remembered that the band had played Maxwell’s several times early in their history, and there were references during the show to those times. Despite how far they’ve come, The National still retain their perspective and the material was as authentic and powerful up close in the intimate venue as it was in the large ones they play now. The National will spend much of the first half of 2011 on tour in Europe, but we expect to see them again in NYC this Summer, although never again at a venue this compact.

We recorded this set with all six of our high-end microphones mixed in eight channels with a slight board mix. We used the Neumann’s for clarity, the DPAs for warmth and the Schoeps for the low end. The results are pretty outstanding. Enjoy!

We are no longer offering this particular recording, as the sound quality did not meet our standards. We now offer two separate versions, taken from the two-four track recordings captured by acidjack and nyctaper. The new versions are [HERE].

Dinowalrus: November 16, 2010 Knitting Factory – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

December 5, 2010

[Photos by Johnny Leather]

The Brooklyn band Dinowalrus has executed a bit of a reboot lately, changing both their personnel and their approach. The former Titus Andronicus guitarist Pete Feigenbaum, the band’s frontman and guitarist, has added a new player on bass, Liam Andrew, as well as Depreciation Guild drummer Anton Hoccheim, and has sought to clarify some of the ideas explored on the band’s debut LP, %. One of the band’s goals, as they put it, is to be “structurally unorthodox,” but at times that led to performances that lacked focus – it could seem that one song was a jumble of concepts rather than a unified whole. This show at the Knitting Factory showcased both reworked arrangements of their older material as well as new songs that continue the band’s love affair with Krautrock, acid rock, noise, thrash punk and psychedelia, but have much more musical consistency and pop sensibility. Listen to “RICO” below and see if you agree. The band’s new approach has already received positive notice in several publications, and we expect that trend to continue in 2011. We still have no idea what the hell a “Dinowalrus” is, but now we can say that this musical creature is a strange beast with a purpose.

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones at the soundboard. They captured the excellent house mix by Rob of the Knitting Factory perfectly. Enjoy!

Maps & Atlases: August 12, 2010 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3 Downloads

September 16, 2010

[Photos courtesy of The Owl Mag]

With this stellar set at Mercury Lounge, Chicago’s Maps & Atlases announced their arrival as strong contenders on the indie scene.  Touring behind their third release (but first official full length), the quantum-leap-forward Perch Patchwork, the band gave fans far more than originally promised, closing out with an acoustic set on the floor of the venue.  Albeit in a very different way, these Chicagoans, like their neighbors in Tortoise, don’t sound like anybody else.  For lack of a better term, I like to call their sound freak folk meets math rock.  While the concept of “freak folk-meets-math rock” may be hard to grasp, the band’s technical rhythmic sense (including dual percussion at times), combined with singer/guitarist Dave Davison’s vocals and a vaguely folk-based guitar approach make them hard to describe otherwise.  This crowd at Mercury, like many I have seen at the venue recently, were rowdy and going wild for the headliners after a strong night of music.  One group was screaming for “Solid Ground” from the get go, and the version heard here does not disappoint.   That song, like many from their new record, demonstrates the band’s emerging pop sensibility, and the promise of greater things to come.  These guys could go in many directions from here; I can see them wearing the indie crown just as easily as ingratiating themselves to the Bonnaroo scene.  As they are not easily categorized, different fans will understand them in different ways.  Ultimately that acoustic set on the floor tells the story best – these guys want to play music even after most of the crowd has gone home, even after the contractually agreed set time.  They can’t help themselves.  Listen to Perch Patchwork and tell me if you can resist.

I recorded this set with a top quality board feed combined with the Schoeps microphones.  The sound quality of the main set is among the finest of my recordings with this rig and is a testament to the hard work of the Mercury production team.  The acoustic set – which I had to record a bit on the fly – is a bit rougher given that there was no board feed, and the mics picked up some handling noise, but it is still quite good.  Enjoy!

Maps & Atlases are touring Iowa and Europe in September and October.  See the dates on their MySpace page.

These United States: August 28, 2010 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[These United States at Mercury Lounge last year.  Photo by Anna Tucker]

The romance of a hard-working band is undeniable.  These are bands that never flag, no matter how many stages in how many cities they’ve sweated on, who above all else evince a percolating creative urge.  That is precisely how to describe These United States.  These boys from Lexington, KY and Washington, D.C. have become regulars in NYC and just about everywhere else in America over the past two years, bringing their Southern-inspired rock far beyond its natural borders.  Along with nearly non-stop touring, they have been releasing albums like crazy, with two in 2008, one in 2009, and their latest, What Lasts this July.  While they have undoubtedly lost a good deal of sleep in the process, what they haven’t lost is their generosity to their fans and their ability to give them a rowdy, spirited show.  This late show at the Mercury Lounge was the second-to-last of their latest tour, but you wouldn’t have known it, with amiable frontman Jesse Elliott chatting up the equally chatty crowd.  I am told that New York is one of the band’s favorite places to play, and if you consider the reception of at least vaguely kindred spirits (i.e., Southern rockers) like Kings of Leon and the Drive-By Truckers, it isn’t difficult to see why — New Yorkers can’t get enough of the sound of the South.

I recorded this set with an excellent board feed provided by the Mercury staff, and the Schoeps hypercardiod microphones.  The overall sound quality is outstanding, but the one caveat is so noteworthy I have to comment on it – a few songs, especially in the beginning, are marred by rude people talking.  Consider that the amount of conversation you hear at points in this recording is recorded from highly directional mics that are eight feet in the air, mixed almost 50/50 with a source that has no crowd noise at all.  Then consider how loud this would be to human ears in the crowd – or worse, on stage.  A rock concert isn’t church – everyone gets that.  But if you want to have a conversation, ignoring the band entirely, please show respect for both the other fans who paid to actually see music – and more importantly, the artists – and take your conversation to the bar or outside.  Whether they actually tell you or not, it bums both the other fans and the band out to have their concert experience marred by someone talking loudly over the music.  With that out of the way, enjoy!

The National: July 29, 2010 Terminal 5 – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Sample

July 30, 2010

I’ll admit to some trepidation about The National‘s three-year break between albums. After 2005’s excellent Alligator, the band’s brilliant Boxer (2007) is perhaps the best album of the entire last decade. The National toured steadily throughout 2008, and played two of the best shows we saw that year, at BAM in February and Summerstage in August. A relatively quiet 2009 and news of the new album led to a significant amount of anticipation — could the band meet the expectations and reach the bar they had raised so high after Boxer. The day that High Violet was streamed on the New York Times website (!), I felt an almost palpable sense of relief as I listened to the album straight through. The National had produced another stunning achievement — an album with songcraft equal or better than the band’s best material but with more confidence and maturity. High Violet is the album that cements The National as one of those few bands that will provide consistent quality music for as long as they choose to make it. At Terminal 5 last night, the band’s live show complimented the triumph of the new album with a performance of sustained excellence. The newer material blended well with the classics and in some instances shown brighter — “Lemonworld” reached a crowd-pleasing crescendo, “Bloodbuzz Ohio” was a show-stopper, and “Terrible Love” was a powerful show-closer.

We recorded this set with the Neumanns and the Schoeps in a four-mic configuration from a 12 foot stand in front of the soundboard cage. The sound in the cavernous venue was not quite up to our expectations, and while the recording has a lot of character, it lacks the clarity we expect. With those caveats, enjoy!
