LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP TOM CARTER – BY BUYING MUSIC AND DONATING TO HIS MEDICAL EXPENSES – HERE

The guitarist Steve Gunn joined longtime collaborator John Truscinski (with whom he comprises the unit Gunn-Truscinski Duo), and bassist Justin Tripp (along with Laura Ortman on violin for most of the set) for a very special trio performance to benefit the guitarist Tom Carter. Carter, who has worked on many projects over the years but is best known for his work in Charalambides, contracted a serious form of pneumonia while on tour in Europe, and has incurred significant medical bills while being treated in intensive care and, more recently, at recovery centers in both Germany and the United States. This show at 285 Kent, sponsored by the Issue Project Room, was designed to raise funds for Carter’s ongoing recovery. The community of avant-garde guitarists and musicians is incredibly tight-knit and supportive, and this contribution in New York was one of many efforts to support Tom around the world.

This set consisted of both new material and work from Gunn’s two most recent LPs for Three Lobed Recordings, one highlight of which was “The Lurker”, Gunn’s side from the out-of-print Three Lobed 10th anniversary box set. For that song, Gunn & co. were joined by Marc Orleans, who most recently collaborated with Carter on the Northern Spy Records release Eleven Twenty Nine. The song, like much of Gunn’s work, showcases a range of styles and unique phrasing, and Orleans’ participation made it all the more memorable. Streaming below is a rollicking full-band version of the 2012 Gunn classic “Trailways Gramble”, which appeared on Three Lobed’s compilation of work of eight outstanding American underground guitarists, Eight Trails, One Path. While a lot of this night’s crowd may have been there for the headliner, Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving, it was perhaps this unique collaboration of guitar talents that was the most fitting tribute to Carter and the work he has done to this point in his life. We wish Carter a speedy recovery, and encourage you to donate by buying music, donating via PayPal, or attending other benefit shows, all of which can be done by clicking the link at the top of this post.

nyctaper and I recorded this set in our usual manner for this venue with Sennheiser MKH-8040 microphones and a soundboard feed. While 285 Kent can always be a bit of a challenge with quieter acts, we feel this is a recording of excellent quality. Enjoy!

The Chelsea Light Moving set was also recorded and will be posted this week.

Mt. Eerie: September 21, 2011 285 Kent

Phil Elverum is one of those elusive and otherworldly presences in music, who can take the simplest organ line or bell tone and build a surprising, hauntingly beautiful song around it. Best known for his work under the moniker The Microphones, Elverum rechristened the project Mt. Eerie in the middle of the last decade, but continues with many of The Microphones’ themes and sounds. This show at 285 Kent, presented by the legendary ToddP, had the type of intimate feel that echoed the very bedrooms where Elverum has made many of his compositions. This nine-song set showcased material new and old, and represented Elverum and the touring band’s triumph over what had been a very finicky PA system earlier in the evening. The band followed this show with a Monday performance at Le Poisson Rouge – another venue of considerable charm – but really, what better place to see a bedroom recordist than one of the Brooklyn scene’s coolest living rooms?

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones near the right stack, coupled with a soundboard feed. Other than some light noise from a fan near the mics during the first couple songs, the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
