Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band: April 6, 2017 Trans-Pecos

June 1, 2017
By

Chris Forsyth’s appearance at Trans-Pecos a couple months ago heralded that most important of musical happenings: the possibility of a new release. With their latest No Quarter release The Rarity of Experience a proven success win fans, Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band used this intimate stage to show off some of their latest attractions. After hitting the ground running with “High Castle Rock,” we heard three new numbers in a row, including “History and Science Fiction” and “Mistaken the Bottle” (which we first heard at Union Pool back in late 2016) plus a new as-yet-unnamed (to us, anyway) number. When you add in “Dreaming In the Non-Dream I-II,” you’ve got a set chock-full of new material that continues to expand on Forsyth’s unique guitar vision, which blends a rock fan’s appreciation for shredding (he named a song after “Cocksucker Blues,” after all) with a Deadhead’s appreciation for sonic exploration, thematic variation, and little details. It’s always a treat to see Chris and the band, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on what’s next.

I recorded this set with onstage Schoeps MK5 microphones into a warm-sounding Aerco preamp, plus a soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Tortoise: March 16, 2017 Hall at MP

March 22, 2017
By

Seeing Tortoise is one thing. Seeing them up close, watching the synchronous drumming, the members swapping instruments song to song, playing in perfect time, is really seeing Tortoise. This was far from my first time with them, but it was my first time at the distance you see above, and it was incredible. Still on a high from last year’s The Catastrophist, the band felt less bound this time around to showcase those songs, instead delving back particularly hard into their landmark album TNT, among other corners of their catalog.

The Hall at MP, a relatively new below-ground venue paired with a Michael Psilakis restaurant up top, proved a good venue for these guys, with a broad stage that could accommodate all those instrument changes. One notable change toward the end of the set was a guest appearance by Yo La Tengo’s Georgia Hubley, who joined the band for “Yonder Blue,” the song on which she provided vocals for The Catastrophist.

In terms of the rest of the set, what constituted a “highlight” probably had as much to do with your introduction to the band and the set list of the last show you saw than the actual quality of the music, all of which was high. As Eric noted in his review of the previous night’s show, this band has been a gateway drug of sorts for many of us who grew into independent music that went beyond verse-chorus-verse, guitar-and-vocal sounds. What’s so notable about Tortoise is that they’ve probably kept doing that for so, so many more over the ensuing years.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed of Tortoise engineer Elliott Dicks’ mix, coupled with Schoeps MK5 cardioid microphones in “X-Y” position onstage. The sound quality is truly outstanding. Enjoy!

Dinosaur Jr.: August 5, 2016 Rough Trade NYC

August 9, 2016

IMG_1084

Any story about Dinosaur Jr. in New York really must start with the shows that didn’t appear on this site — the band’s singular string of seven shows at Bowery Ballroom back in December of 2015 (they’re going to be officially released in some form). There, the band celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of their debut album — an extraordinary feat for almost any act, even more of one for a band who some would argue didn’t hit their commercial potential even during the heyday of their style of music. Joined by an all-star roster of guests every night, J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph proved how much they’ve meant, and continued to mean, to the music that’s been made during their run. That old saw about being defined by the company you keep? There’s a reason for it.

Which brings us to this much more intimate show at Rough Trade NYC, on the heels of the band’s latest tour with fellow late 80s/90s stalwarts Jane’s Addiction. These homecoming nights are always fun, giving a band a chance to unwind in front of friends after a touring slog. The band rewarded us with some first-time playings of their just-released new record, Give A Glimpse of What Yer Not, which could as easily be the mantra of a band whose consistency and quality has been remarkable through lineup changes and a hiatus. If their first shot at “Goin’ Down” was a little rough (in Barlow’s opinion, anyway), the crowd wasn’t bugged by it, as the band showed off the new album tracks alongside many of their best-loved favorites, including their biggest commercial hit, “Feel the Pain.” Of course, the diehards were there for the older classics like “Freak Scene,” “Gargoyle” and “The Lung,” as well as my personal favorite, the night’s closer of “Out There.” If it wasn’t a two-plus hour bonanza of rare tracks and guest stars, this show was closer to what any band really wants to be about — enduring classics played to enduring fans, in a set that proves that their new material is just as vital as the old. After some much-needed rest, I’m sure we’ll see them back at it to tour the new record in full. We’ll be there.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in our usual spot in the venue with an Aeta PSP3 preamp for extra clarity. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Thanks to Dinosaur Jr.’s management team and the Rough Trade staff for helping to make this happen.

Ought: May 8, 2016 Rough Trade NYC

June 2, 2016

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!

Heartless Bastards: May 10, 2016 Music Hall of Williamsburg

May 20, 2016

IMG_0210

Our journey with the Heartless Bastards continued this year with this show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, part of a dual-headlining tour with the Old 97’s (unfortunately, not taped). Since we first started covering their shows seven years ago, the Bastards have proven over and over to be a consistent, happy go lucky gang of road warriors, churning out one high energy show after another. It’s a credit to them that over a career that spans numerous albums and more than a decade, there’s not a dud among the bunch. Like another Cincinnati band we like to gush about, this band trades flash for grit, quality for quackery. For this show, the second of theirs we’ve covered at this venue, there wasn’t a brand-new album to promote (Restless Ones came out last year) so we were treated to a hit parade of sorts, from “Blue Day” from All This Time, to some of my favorites from Arrow like “Down in the Canyon” and “Skin and Bone,” to the new stuff, including obvious road winner “Gates of Dawn.” As both bands played essentially headliner-length sets, this clocked in a touch shorter than some of the recent sets we’ve seen (though still well past an hour) but nobody left complaining. The band went on to swap places with the Old 97’s a couple nights later at Irving Plaza, but I have to believe the Music Hall crowd got the better end of the bargain. As Erika said, the band loves this club, and for good reason. Like the band themselves, it’s something familiar, and something good.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in our usual spot, plus an Aeta PSP-3 preamp to provide optimum clarity. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Nap Eyes: March 9, 2016 Union Pool

March 22, 2016
By

FullSizeRender

Nap Eyes, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, occupy a bit of a time warp. Listen to Thought Rock Fish Scale, their fantastic new record on Paradise of Bachelors, without knowing what you’re hearing and you might believe you were hearing mid-70s Californians raised on Lou Reed, combining laid-back rhythms with a conversational, wry delivery. Frontman Nigel Chapman has the effect of sounding like someone you’ve heard a thousand times, but haven’t quite heard before. Beneath the winsome surface, Nap Eyes have a lot going on, including Chapman’s lyrics, which swing from the confessional to the bizarre. Not that it matters much in the live setting, where we caught the band’s sold-out show at Union Pool last week. The band showed off tunes from both Thought Rock and their recently-reissued debut, Whine of the Mystic, as well as one brand-new song that shows the same level of promise as the two recent offerings. Combined with the guys’ good-natured banter (even a parent was in attendance), the show gave you the sense that the positive press surrounding this band is well-earned, a sign of their low-key appeal and their ability to casually surprise.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones from our usual spot in the balcony, combined with a soundboard feed from Union Pool engineer Robert. There are two flaws: the level of the vocals fluctuates a bit halfway through, and the house music isn’t totally faded out for about half of the first song. With those two caveats, the sound quality overall is excellent. Enjoy!

Cian Nugent: March 9, 2016 Union Pool

March 14, 2016
By

IMG_1885

With his brand new album Night Fiction, the Irish guitarist Cian Nugent has followed in the footsteps of some of his other guitar proteges. That is, without abandoning the intricate guitar sound that brought us in to begin with, he’s also stepped to the mic as vocalist in a full band. This was Nugent’s first U.S. tour in that capacity, and the Union Pool crowd knew it, stuffing the place to the gills on a warm Wednesday night. With a crack band that includes Ryan Jewell (also of Ryley Walker’s regular outfit, among others) and Conor Lumsden, Nugent delved straight into the new material with a stirring “First Run,” one of the bluesier rock numbers in his new repertoire. As another review put it, Nugent didn’t exactly need to “find his voice,” but his new turn as a singer nonetheless felt assured. Things took a contemplative turn mid-set with the unhurried “Things Don’t Change That Fast,” one of the album’s centerpiece tracks, followed by the like-minded “Shadows.”

But if you thought Nugent was going down on a somber note, I hope you didn’t miss the show’s piece de resistance, with a surprise visit from Steve Gunn on the fifteen-minute album boogie monster “Year of the Snake.” Conjuring the magic of the stunning Desert Heat show we captured a few years ago, Gunn and Nugent traded riffs like the longtime collaborators they are, with both clearly feeling the energy of the room and the night. It was an absolute barnstormer of a song, with the two players so far in the zone you almost hoped it wouldn’t end. Cian will be back in town on April 9 at Alphaville — be sure to see him there.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed from Union Pool engineer Robert. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Soldiers of Fortune: January 7, 2016 Bowery Ballroom

January 26, 2016
By

IMG_1267

Soldiers of Fortune have marketed themselves at various points as an “anti-band” — one that never writes music, practices, or records. Of course, given the cast of players (Brad Truax (Interpol, others)), Kid Millions (Man Forever, Oneida), Barry London (Oneida), Matt Sweeney (Chavez, many others), Jesper Eklow (Endless Boogie, others), Mike Bones, and Papa Crazee (Oneida)), that’s hardly a disqualification from being a “band.” These are folks whose improvisational turns regularly outshine their recorded output. This show at Bowery Ballroom comes on the heels of the release in November 2015 of their record Early Risers, a more song-based affair, but of course that didn’t stop the crew from delving in one long, multi-movement sustained jam (which, I confess, may or may not include actual songs from the record). Though Cass McCombs was the night’s headliner, you might not have known it from looking at the packed floor of the venue, where it seemed an entire crew of heads were there just for this set, ultimately being replaced by yet-more people for Cass’s set. As with our excellent recent spate of Oneida shows, this was an experimental music fan’s dream, a can’t-miss experience from an outfit that you don’t see around here too often.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in our usual spot together with a soundboard feed from Bowery legend Kenny. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Hiss Golden Messenger: November 19, 2015 Baby’s All Right

November 25, 2015
By

IMG_0806

Continuing with the “running out of things to say” theme, I think even the band is starting to wonder if I do much of anything besides attend Hiss Golden Messenger concerts. If you read about the band’s doings in Durham, NC earlier last week, you’d know they debuted Heart Like A Levee, an entire new album, before two successive nights of attendees at Duke University. That album should be appearing on Merge Records in due time.

Well, this show at Baby’s All Right wasn’t that, but that’s not to take anything away from this sweaty, raucous show before a sell-out crowd. M.C. Taylor was joined on this jaunt by most of his regular band — the Cook brothers on keys and guitars, Matt McCaughan on drums — with Josh Kaufman taking up additional guitar duties. This show sounded like one by people who’ve fallen into a comfortable groove, and despite the extremely unpleasant temperature (how you make a club over 100 degrees indoors in the middle of November is a mystery to me) the band sweated through some strong versions of their tour favorites, plus less-heard numbers like “Mahogany Dread,” off of Lateness of DancersPoor Moon‘s “Super Blue (Two Days Clean)” and a newly-rocking version of “Brother, Do You Know the Road?” Perhaps out of a sense of self-preservation (the band were so hot their guitars were covered in sweat), we only got one encore, but it was a keeper — Waylon Jennings’ “Lonesome, On’ry and Mean.”

So, forgive the brevity of this writeup, but if you’re already on the train, you can read any of my reviews of recent shows to get a pretty good idea where things are headed. If you’re new to the band, well, this is a fine, fine way to take the plunge.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones at the stage lip, together with Harrison Fore’s soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Greensky Bluegrass: August 1, 2015 Gathering of the Vibes (Bridgeport, CT) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

August 5, 2015
By

[screen shot from the below YouTube video by MK Devo]

We caught back up with Michigan band Greensky Bluegrass, seen by us most recently at the Gramercy Theatre last year, during the peak heat on this past Saturday at Gathering of the Vibes. The band’s updated bluegrass sound made for a perfect backdrop to the sunny weather, as they mellowed things down with their approachable tunes and good, well, vibes. This being a festival set, we were treated to an hour’s worth of some of the band’s key material, much of it culled from their most recent effort If Sorrows Swim. Back at the Gramercy the band busted out a Prince cover; today found them in a similar mid-’80s frame of mind cover-wise, as they pulled out Dire Straits’ 1985 classic, “Money For Nothing.” MTV barely even exists anymore, but even the younger segments of the Vibe Tribe still seemed to get it. This was Greensky’s first Gathering of the Vibes, and based on the crowd’s response, I suspect they’ll be back.

I recorded this set with four Schoeps microphones, combining a pair of MK4V cardiods with MK5s in the omnidirectional pattern to give the recording added presence. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
