It was a little more than a year ago when acidjack predicted the success of Ski Lodge on these very pages. That 2012 Northside show was a precursor of what we see now in this band — strong 80s-influenced songcraft performed by a tight and talented quintet. Ski Lodge has now released their debut album Big Heart and Tuesday night at Glasslands was the CD release show. As lead singer Andrew Marr noted during the show, it was encouraging that on a late summer midweek night the band still managed to pack Glasslands with an animated crowd. The first few rows were consistently dancing throughout the set and the band obliged with perky indie-pop numbers that made moving easy. The setlist included 8 of the album’s 11 tracks and two songs from the band’s debut EP. We’re streaming the set finale, a scorching version of “Just To Be Like You” that closed the set in appropriate fashion and left the frenetic crowd wanting more.

I recorded this set in our usual manner in this venue and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Ski Lodge: June 16, 2012 Spike Hill [Northside Festival] – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

Ski Lodge are the perfect band to write about on a day when temperatures in NYC are set to hit around 100 degrees. Contrary to the name, they are a summer band, inspired by frontman Andrew Marr’s trip to a Florida beach. Chosen by the L Magazine as one of their “8 Bands You Need to Hear“, this daytime showcase at Spike Hill during the Northside Festival showcased four of such acts, with Ski Lodge the final act on the bill. It wasn’t hard to figure out where the L folks were coming from; Marr and his band make surf-inspired pop insta-classics (like “A Game”, streaming below) that are delivered with understated confidence. The sizable crowd for this day show – on another scorchingly hot day, incidentally – attested to the appeal of the band and its style. I won’t be surprised if Ski Lodge quickly finds favor with fans of acts like Surfer Blood, The Smiths, Vampire Weekend and Beach Fossils, among others. Marr is a trained classical pianist, and has a classic, crooner-style vocal that helps define the band’s laid-back aesthetic. The band currently has a four-song EP out on Dovecote Records, but expect a full-length LP sometime this year.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and a stereo soundboard feed provided by the house engineer at Spike Hill. The house mix and overall room sounded excellent, and this recording is a reflection of that. Enjoy!

Thanks to Spike Hill, Ski Lodge and the Northside Festival.
