Sunn O))): March 17, 2017 Knockdown Center

March 19, 2017

The visceral experience of seeing Sunn O))) is not readily expressible in words so I’m going to be brief. It’s two days later now, my ears still ringing despite the hearing protection. The Knockdown Center shook and rattled and groaned but contrary to its name was still standing after two hours of Sunn O))) doing their best to reduce it rubble with their low frequency assault. The four songs here are presented as a continuous piece. They have titles that I’m sadly not deft enough to know, though the second is “Aghartha” from Monoliths & Dimensions. No recording could do this experience justice but maximum volume will get you partway there.

I recorded this with the mics run high, set up at the soundboard. The results are stunning. Enjoy!

Thanks to the Knockdown Center, Tinnitus Music Series, and LPR Presents for all their assistance in making this happen.

Earth: August 27, 2015 Saint Vitus – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

August 30, 2015

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!
