The Hum Residency: April 06, 2015 Manhattan Inn – Flac/MP3/Streaming

April 13, 2015

The Hum Residency is a collection of over 30 artists collaborating at Greenpoint’s Manhattan Inn every Monday night in April. In the evening, Manhattan Inn is a bar and restaurant featuring a baby grand piano and rotating pianist in a lovely candle lit room in the back. After 10pm, the space is transformed into a concert venue, tables on the floor quickly whisked away while dinner patrons sitting in custom-made wooden booths, dessert plates and the check in front of them, prepare to enjoy a special evening of music in what will be a standing-room only crowd.

Each Monday night features three sets of collaborating artists and for the first act of this night, Brooklyn’s Teletextile and Belle Mare huddled around the house piano. Teletextile is no stranger to intimate sets as we previously featured them for an indoor Backyard Brunch session in 2011 and both bands delivered an equally good performance.

For the second act, Renata Zeiguer of Cantina and Cassandra Jenkins shared the floor creating a seven piece ensemble complete with drum kit. The floor was impassable, cables and guitar peddles covering every last inch of available space on the floor, and the artists were literally surrounding my microphones.

The final act was the powerful duet of Shilpa Ray amd Deva Mahal. Shilpa is releasing a new album called Last Year’s Savage on May 19, 2015 (Northern Spy Records), and she’ll be playing a record release show at Rough Trade on May 23rd.

I recorded this unique set using a pair of Schoeps MK4 Cardioid microphones on-stage in the a classic ORTF setup which was re-positioned for each artist. The audience recording was mixed with a soundboard feed provided by Manhattan Inn’s Engineer John. The audience was incredibly respectful during this intimate set and the results are outstanding. We hope you enjoy!

We have had some excellent CMJ shows in the past — last year’s show at Cake Shop was packed at one o’clock in the afternoon. But I have to say that this year’s bill is really something special. Our means of selection of the bands is based upon the groups that have “wowed” us in the last year. Of the eight bands on this bill, seven have appeared on nyctaper in the last twelve months (sans Prussia, who we’ve been trying to see!).

Here are the important details:

Teletextile: August 7, 2011 BBS at the Richardson – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

August 19, 2011

The Backyard Brunch Sessions made a rare move indoors on a recent Saturday for this excellent performance by Brooklyn’s own Teletextile, due to the threat of rain. We couldn’t have asked for a better indoor setting (or one with better drinks) than Williamsburg’s best cocktail bar, The Richardson, in its intimate downstairs parlor. As light shined through windowed glass doors to the street and attendees ate white gazpacho, Teletextile showed off the avant-pop chops of frontwoman Pamela Martinez (wearing some unmistakable headwear) and her band. Mixing in unusual instruments like a full-sized harp and an accordion, this mostly-acoustic set focused on the band’s recent EP, Reflector. Martinez led off with a solo number, “Heartquake” which had her voice trilling to the upper registers at its peak, then sinking effortlessly back to a whisper. After that head-turning beginning, the band continued with strong material, including “What If You” and its companion song, “What If I” from Reflector, that showed off their basic chops as well as their unique perspective.

hi and lo recorded this set with a variety of high-end microphones placed around the room. The results are excellent. Enjoy!
