Car Seat Headrest: October 15, 2015 NYCTaper Unofficial CMJ Show, Cake Shop

Twenty-two year old Will Toledo, who performs as Car Seat Headrest, is one of those songwriters whose skill actually matches his high level of output and obvious ambition. That’s a clear reason how, at a young age, and after already writing, performing and producing eleven albums (!!!) on his own on bandcamp, he’s found himself signed to Matador Records, where he’s about to release Teens of Style. Lest you dump this music in the category of mumbly lo-fi bedroom recordings that we’ve all seen a hundred times before, I’d point you to the very first song of this set at our NYCTaper Unofficial CMJ Show, “The Ending of Dramamine,” which was fourteen minutes of off-kilter pop-inflected rock reminiscent of bands like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the Cars and R.E.M. Or there’s how Toledo, prior to his affiliation with a “big time” label, had already sold 25,000 copies of those bandcamp-only releases. Oh, and those earlier efforts weren’t made in a bedroom — the story goes that the only place Toledo could find peace and quiet to record was the family car, hence the band name.

Toledo’s songs are lyrically dense, at times funny, at times teenage-confessional, unflinchingly honest. We were excited that Matador offered us the chance to have this artist close our show, because Teens of Style has already appeared on many best-of lists since its October 30 release. All of these songs appeared in some form prior to Teens of Style, but expect to hear brand-new versions of the last three — “Times To Die,” “Something Soon” and “Oh! Starving” — on that record. In the meantime, enjoy these right-on live performances, and expect much more to come, including a show on December 5 at Baby’s All Right.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in front of the stage and a soundboard feed from Cake Shop engineer Jeff. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Catch them at Baby’s All Right on December 5. Get tickets here.

Kinski: October 23, 2015 Cake Shop

November 3, 2015

Kinski

Call it post-rock or psych-rock if you want, but make sure your emphasis is on the rock. Since 1998, Seattle’s Kinski have been churning out a slew of records, many for Sub Pop and most recently with Kill Rock Stars, who released 2013’s Cosy Moments and this year’s 7 (or 8). The latter title is a reference to the band’s slightly confusing discography, though it’s not overly messy in any respect. I had some vague familiarity with Kinski prior but was still very much a newcomer a couple weeks back, seeing them live for the first time. The band stopped by Cake Shop on their brief East Coast tour to open for Oneida (that set here) and had the small room packed to the gills by a crowd clearly more in-the-know than me. This set draws mostly from 7 (or 8), adding a couple yet-to-be-titled songs and one classic cut, “Crybaby Blowout” off Down Below It’s Chaos (2007). One of my favorites from this set is off a (sadly, sold out at the source) split EP with Sandrider released earlier this year, the moody and impeccably-titled “The Narcotic Comforts of the Status Quo.”

I recorded this set with the AKG’s set up on the ceiling at the edge of the stage, combined with an expert, true stereo board feed from Cake Shop FOH, Clint. The results are nothing short of spectacular. Enjoy!

Just shy of a year since we last saw Earth at Saint Vitus, the band returned to the venue last week for the second of two NYC shows. Marc Ribot reportedly joined the band for “Old Black” at Le Poisson Rouge the previous night and though we didn’t get any special guests at Vitus, Earth did not disappoint. Still touring for Primitive and Deadly, this year’s setlist is quite similar to last year’s, adding only “From a Zodiacal Light” to the repertoire (though some stops on the tour seem to also be getting “High Command” from 1996’s Pentastar). This is one of those play-it-loud-late-at-night kinds of things, so be extra nice to your neighbors otherwise because you’re going to want to crank this one.

I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue, with a soundboard feed from Earth’s FOH. The results are outstanding. Enjoy!

Night Beats: July 2, 2014 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set

Seattle garage rockers Night Beats helmed a stacked bill this night at Baby’s All Right that also featured Frankie Rose’s new project Beverly (that recording to be posted soon pending band approval), Hamish Kilgour’s latest project Roya, and Brooklyn garage punks LODRO. Night Beats had been teasing new songs for a while (including our last meet up with them at Glasslands) and we’ve finally gotten to see the final versions in the form of the songs on their record Sonic Bloom. Much of that material was on display on this night, but the Beats jumped around some, playing some more new ones, plus songs from their self-titled debut LP. Of note from that album in particular were a fiery “Puppet On A String” and the jammed-out set closer “The Other Side”, but the real fun came in hearing new songs like “Dewayne’s Drone” and “Useless Game” come to life. The Beats were joined after the show by the Black Lips on the turntables, and returned the favor the following night when they opened for the Lips at the lame corporate marketing opportunity House of Vans.

This set was recorded by Baby’s All Right head of production Devin Foley using the house multitrack system, whose files I produced and mixed down. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Night Beats: August 6, 2012 Knitting Factory – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

Seattle’s Night Beats keep it simple. With a sound whose most obvious reference points are Roky Erickson-style Texas psych and garage rock, the three piece’s no-bullshit live show has gained an ever-increasing following. A look at who they’ve toured with – bands like the Black Lips, Black Angels, the Strange Boys and even Roky himself – tells their story pretty accurately. This show at Knitting Factory may have been on a Monday, but that didn’t slow down the dancing or thin out the crowd, who got to enjoy a very strong bill all night long (openers MMoss and K-Holes similarly killed it). The band continue to tour behind their 2011 self-titled debut LP on Trouble In Mind records, and this set featured a lot of it, including their current single, “Puppet On A String”.  Luckily, the band also delved into what there is of a “back catalog”, in this case the 2010 H-Bomb EP, including that track as well as one of my favorites “They Came In Through the Window”. I’m pretty sure I heard some new songs (or at least, ones I couldn’t identify from the EP and album) as well. Though similar in sound, Night Beats eschewed the onstage antics some of their brethren like the Black Lips, which made for fewer flying bodies and beer cans, but one hell of a show.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and a soundboard feed from Rob, the engineer at the Knitting Factory.  In true garage band form, the sound is raw, but an excellent representation of the night and a great listen. Enjoy!

Earth: October 2, 2011 ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

October 6, 2011

The revivified (as of 2005) Seattle band Earth is a behemoth of sound. Progenitors of an entire microgenre (“drone doom”), the band’s latest incarnation is a slightly more epic, and also more delicate outfit that combines elements of heavy grunge guitars, drone and americana. The band also has several ties to the band Nirvana, including lead guitarist and founding member Dylan Carlson’s well-documented friendship with Kurt Cobain, and current bandmember and cellist Lori Goldston’s role as touring cellist for Nirvana (and cellist on MTV Unplugged In New York).

But the band’s connections and history are only footnotes to one of the most powerful of the sets I have seen since I began attending the various New York-based All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals. This fourth year of the festival (awkwardly rechristened “ATP Presents I’ll Be Your Mirror”) was relocated from the quirky (and sketchy) holiday resort where it was held for the previous three years to the more welcoming environs of the Asbury Park, NJ – home of Bruce Springsteen and many other notable artists (including recent NYCTaper favorite Nicole Atkins, as we learned last week). Along with the relocation came new venues, including the weathered-but-still-standing Paramount Theater, which provided the ideal venue for Earth’s prettified slowcore.

The band played five longform compositions, each of which Carlson introduced by name, including the band’s first-ever song “Ouroboros Is Broken” as well as the title track from its latest record, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light, a sequel to which is due soon. Each song was positively massive, cinematic in its sweep, with Carlson’s darkly-tuned guitar riffs threading in between Goldston’s somber cello, all backed by a focused but dense wall of bass and drums. Earth are one of many examples of the eclectic but brilliant programming of ATP – a modern classic of a band that may have been overlooked by some, but is a fixture for those who know them. Not only was theirs the best-sounding set of the festival, but one of the most inspired – reminding us of the critical essence of the early Seattle sound, and where it could have gone if it had the chance to grow up. Indeed, ATP festivals are always somewhere to be inspired, not only by outstanding music, but by the fans and sense of community they engender. It is my privilege to bring you but a small piece of this experience.

I recorded this set with the DPA 4021 microphones from the optimum spot in the venue. Especially given the use of a mobile rig, it is one of my finest captures of the year. Enjoy!

The other set by an ATP band that allows audio taping – Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra – will be posted to the site in the coming days as well.

David Bazan: June 22, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

Seattle singer-songwriter David Bazan first made his name recording under the moniker Pedro the Lion, a project that yielded some excellent records such as 1998’s It’s Hard to Find a Friend, and gave Bazan a fuzzed-out forum to air his beliefs – most notably among them his belief in Christianity (Christian publications even referred to his records as “crossover” records, i.e., to the secular mainstream), a relatively rare thing to find in a critically-acclaimed indie songwriter. Since then, Bazan has “broken up” in a sense with Christianity, as well as his former cast of bandmates and continued performing under his own name, making what some have called the best music of his career. His first solo effort, 2009’s Curse Your Branches, laid bare his spiritual conflict with cleanly constructed songs built around his mournful voice.

That voice took center stage at this Bowery Ballroom show, sure, but what was striking about this performance was the quality of everything around that voice – catchy, strong rock riffs evident from the opening notes of “Wolves at the Door,” and a crack backing band. While it may have been a “singer-songwriter” show in a sense, this was also a rock show through and through. Unsurprisingly, Bazan played 80% of his latest, 2011’s Strange Negotiations, but he also delved into the early Pedro the Lion catalog, including “Big Trucks” and “Of Up and Coming Monarchs” from It’s Hard to Find a Friend. Those who say Bazan’s current period is his brightest could have a point – the newer material not only held its own, but might have surpassed the Pedro material.

hi and lo recorded this set with a combination of Schoeps supercardiod microphones and Schoeps omnidirectional microphones, which given the extremely respectful crowd and the outstanding acoustics of the venue, gives the perfect sound balance. Enjoy!

Melvins: June 18, 2010 and May 15, 2009 Webster Hall – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The Melvins
[At the May 2009 Webster Hall show.  This photo courtesy of Ryan Muir]

Melvins have now been at it for more than 25 years.  In that time, they inspired many rock legends in the Seattle/Pacific NW scene, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana among them, and have consistently made vital music that rarely if ever crossed paths with the mainstream.  Originally a trio, in recent years they have come out with an awe-inspiring two-drummer attack featuring original drummer Dale Crover and Coady Willis that only magnifies their sludgy personification of the Seattle sound.  The crowd and performance at both of these fantastic shows from Webster Hall – the earlier being one of their mammoth 25th anniversary shows from last year, the more recent one being a shorter set opening for metal gods Isis, who are on their final run before breaking up – spoke to the authenticity of this act.  For once, I attended a Friday night show where every fan stood at rapt attention as this foursome demolished ears and melted faces, including sharing several new songs from their latest, The Bride Screamed Murder.

Of the May 15, 2009 set, Johnny Fried Chicken Boy had this to say:

“This was one of several “25th anniversary” gigs the Melvins performed in the spring of ‘09 that included the album ‘Houdini‘ played in its entirety.  Technically, Buzz “King Buzzo” Osborne has been fronting the band under that moniker a little longer, but who’s counting?  I hadn’t seen the band since ‘97 and am I glad I pulled the trigger on getting tickets.  It was one of those shows that remind you that you’re alive; the energy was phenomenal and spilled over into the moderate pit that broke out.  Having forgotten how amazing these guys can be in a live setting, it brought back memories of this old man’s youth.  They opened with a short set of material from the ‘Mangled Demos from 1983‘ disc that had their first drummer, Mike Dillard, pounding the skins and current, long-time drummer, Dale Crover, on bass.  Trevor Dunn came out later to handle the low-end duties after Dale switched to the drums.  I’ve been to a lot of concerts but this was definitely in my top three of loudest shows I’d seen and I don’t have the memory or time to scratch my head remembering the other two.  It was so loud my clothes were vibrating, as were the keys and loose change in my pockets.  It was so loud my friend had to go sit down because she was getting nauseous.”

These shows were recorded in very different ways.  I recorded the June 2010 set with the DPA microphones mounted to an articulated arm clamped to the balcony, while Johnny recorded the May 2009 set using a lean and mean mobile rig.

Since some people may ask, please note that we were not permitted to record Isis.  Their management made it very clear that the band does not allow audio taping of any kind, and we respect their wishes.  We wish Isis the best in their final shows and future endeavors.
