PUP‘s latest album The Dream is Over (SideOneDummy) is on my short list of best albums of the year. The record captures the manic energy of this Toronto quartet with a collection of songs that exhibit the band’s ability to craft punk rock anthems of angst with a bit of excess and plenty of humor. Dream also brings out the deeper side of PUP with tracks such as “The Coast” and “Pine Point” that delve into that special brand of Canadian loneliness. The album has earned PUP a nomination for a Polaris prize, and universal praise worldwide.

The concept of the album’s production was to bottle up the energy of a live PUP show and put that on a record. This is a band that is in the midst of playing 100 total shows in 2016 where the PUP magic takes place virtually on a nightly basis. But since the last time I saw PUP live was almost three years ago at a modestly attended show at Cameo Gallery before either of their records were released, I wasn’t quite keyed into the true contemporary live PUP experience. That is, until this past Saturday night at Bowery Ballroom.

From the very outset of the show’s opening number “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will”, this very sold-out crowd at Bowery was one massive syncopated group of heads and arms and legs. From our usual vantage point at the front of the balcony, we get a clear bird’s eye view of the floor, and this PUP crowd never stopped dancing, surfing and singing along to every song. We haven’t seen a crowd this animated in a long time or a band as motivated to drive that energy. PUP’s set drew upon both of their albums pretty equally, with nine of the sixteen songs performed coming from Dream and the other seven songs from their self-titled debut album. The crazy energy culminated in lead singer Stefan Babcock literally crowd-surfing the entire floor to the back bar where, while elevated, he downed a shot of whiskey and returned surfing the entire crowd back onto the stage. It was an accomplishment only made possible by the sheer will of the fans and their utter faith in this band.

PUP’s current US and Canadian tour dates continue into mid-December, before the band goes to England in early 2017, all dates [here].

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards in our usual location and mixed with Kenny’s excellent feed. There are some drum level adjustments in the first two tracks, but afterwards the sound is completely dialed-in and is quite an excellent capture of the amazing energy at this show. Enjoy!

Jennifer Castle: October 4, 2015 Webster Hall

It’s never an easy task to be a singer-songwriter opening for an eight-piece band in a 1500-capacity venue, but Jennifer Castle pulled off that feat, opening for Destroyer, in a way that let her material shine. I was surprised to discover that we hadn’t checked in with her since a Union Pool show in 2012, which came before the release of her widely-acclaimed 2014 album, Pink City. So, this was our first time getting to engage with much of that material, and I’m glad we had the chance. Accompanied by guitars and keys, but no percussion, Castle spared little time between songs, packing in as much as she could into the thirty-minute slot. What came across, in the big space of Webster Hall, was how strong her voice is, as able to fill this space as the coffee shops and smaller clubs where this music is typically more comfortable. She began with a newer song, “I Don’t Care About Money,” followed by “Powers” from her 2012 album Castlemusic, possibly the strongest track on that offering. From there, the Pink City material began in rapid-fire fashion, beginning with “Working For the Man.” The diaphanous-but-tensile quality of Castle’s voice is especially evident on this song, and the impressive vocal turns continued for many of the new songs. Not that Castle’s a stranger to challenging work — she’s played with everyone from fellow Canadian folkie Doug Paisley to the somewhat more aggro Toronto crews Fucked Up and The Constantines. Even if this setting might not have been the perfect way to be introduced to Jennifer Castle in terms of size, I suspect she earned a lot of new fans here. She continues with Destroyer on the West Coast before heading to Europe with them in November. Make sure to show up early to catch her set.

As with the Destroyer set, I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from the Webster Hall engineer Raphael, with a bit of Schoeps MK41V microphones to add ambiance. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

PUP
(still from this video)

The Toronto punk scene is one of the current hotbeds for music, and PUP is the latest band to emerge internationally. PUP won the CBC Best New Artist award in 2013, and the band recently signed to legendary US indie Side One Dummy Records. The band returned from a tour of Britain where they headlined at the NME Awards, and began another tour with a headlining show at Cameo Gallery on Friday night. As we reported back in October, this is not a band to miss. The band’s energy was at max throughout the set, as they rifled through a set of material from their album, one old request, and two punk covers. The band’s cover of Jay Reatard’s “My Shadow” made a bit of a splash on the web this month and the live version was as powerful as expected, but it was the surprise encore of the Dead Kennedys’ “Too Drunk To Fuck” that impressed with its humor and faithfulness to the original. We’re streaming that below. PUP’s current tour starts out West, crosses the US and lands in SXSW before coming East. PUP will play the Mercury Lounge on March 25. The album will be released on April 8.

We recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted high in front of the board and mixed with a fine matrix feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Hooded Fang: June 4, 2013 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

It’s impossible not to like the Toronto band Hooded Fang, who play a brand of rather American-tinged pop-inflected punk that always draws a crowd, and often a moshpit. While they’re just getting their due here in America (this was only their second NYC show), they’re actually on their third record, this year’s Gravez, which is as concise a burst of infectious new guitar music as I’ve heard this side of Parquet Courts.

This show at Mercury Lounge matched Hooded Fang up with a diverse cast of U.S. and international acts, including Brooklyn’s Pow Wow and Total Slacker as well as Finland’s French Films (that recording coming soon). As I expected from listening to the record, the Fang’s set put the emphasis solidly on fun, with new tracks like “Ode To Subterrania” delivering a light take on that staple of early-20s slackerdom, living in a basement. My other favorite, “Trasher”, echoes mid-to-late 80s postpunk, in roughly the vein of the Pixies, making a nice counterpoint to some of the more straight-ahead rocking tracks. Most of Gravez was played, but the band tore through those songs so fast that it left time for older fare from their second record, Tosta Mista, including the set closer, “Vacationation”. Hooded Fang promise to be one of the most exciting bands of their kind to hit the scene this year, and I hope more New York appearances are in the offing.

I recorded this set in my usual manner for the venue, with Schoeps MK41 supercardiod microphones and a soundboard feed provided by longtime Mercury engineer Kevin Mazzarelli. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

METZ: April 17, 2013 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

[Photos by acidjack]

METZ lead singer/guitarist Alex Edkins introduced their new song “Can’t Understand” as being about “all the totally messed up people in the world”. They left the spoken statement at that and then let the music do the talking. Over and over, the screamed refrain of those two words over the incessant backbeat and howling guitars framed, in simplest terms, the way people may have been feeling about recent events. Sometimes the best way of expressing anger is the most direct.

Yes, METZ is one of those Canadian bands that gives the lie to the notion that our neighbors to the north are mild-mannered — there is nothing less than 100% full-bore intense about METZ or their delivery. When bassist Chris Slorach was bleeding badly enough that he needed a metal splint on his nose after three songs, then came out after a couple minutes to finish the set, you knew these guys weren’t fucking around.

But don’t let all the hardcore noise fool you. Underneath the brutal dynamics are well-crafted songs and strong musicianship; to quote Stuart Berman’s excellent review of their self-titled Sub Pop debut last year, “there is a fine to art to taking a music fueled by destructive impulses and building it to last.” Much of the front floor of the Bowery Ballroom — and the venue was basically sold out by showtime — may have been too busy moshing to notice, but many of METZ’s songs are seriously good, paying tribute to the punk/sludge golden age of the late 80s and early 1990s. Songs like “Sad Pricks” stand up to anything in this genre’s canon, and the massive show of support from the NYC crowd — a little less than half a year after a sold-out show at the Knitting Factory — underscored that METZ are the real deal.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod mics in our usual spot in the venue plus an excellent feed of the house sound from longtime Bowery engineer Kenny. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Fucked Up: November 15, 2011 Warsaw – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

November 21, 2011

Music is passion. Music is anger. Music is triumph. Music is sorrow. Music is love. Somehow a Fucked Up show manages to incorporate them all. To love Fucked Up is to understand the wonder and beauty of the clean, rising chords of “Let Her Rest”, the multilayered, joyous dueling-guitar attack of “Running On Nothing”, and the gravel-scrubbed squall of incomparable frontman Damian “Pink Eyes” Abraham’s vocals. What makes sense about a Toronto band with an absolutely crack rhythm section, who puts out double-LP rock operas (their latest, David Comes to Life), whose focal point is a hefty, shirtless man screaming into the mic (when it’s not passed into the crowd), carrying crowd-surfers on his back, and cracking off disarming riffs on everything from his weight to his penis? Yet there’s something that does. It works, in part, because Abraham may be – if not the best vocalist – the best frontman in rock right now. He is self-effacing, magnanimous to a fault, funny, and kind. And positively magnetic to watch, as he presides over the chaotic mosh pit party that his band’s music creates. After an earnest, intense set (and one of their best possibly ever) by Titus Andronicus where they paid tribute to the events of the day at Occupy Wall Street, I’ll admit that it was refreshing to crack a smile at Abraham, talking about his recent weight loss. “I felt better fatter” he said, “I don’t want you to think I’m selling out, that I’m changing”). Even talking about OWS, Abraham managed to be funny (listen to the banter tracks to hear his thoughts on OWS and why you shouldn’t “bend over”.. or as he rephrased it, “lie down”).

As noted, while Fucked Up’s sound is nominally “punk”, there is nothing simple or unfocused about its players, whose densely layered guitars are the sea in which Abraham and his antics swim. Already hailed as one of the most ambitious punk bands ever, David Comes to Life raised the stakes with a four-part opera told from the viewpoint of multiple unreliable narrators. From most bands, projects like these come off as weak gimmicks. The difference here is that Fucked Up have the chops to pull it off. This show at Warsaw in Greenpoint – a venue I had not visited in awhile, but is now being booked by the tastemaker Chris Diaz of the Knitting Factory and sure to have more great shows – was the second of two NYC shows in which the band performed the entire record straight through. And what a record it is – obvious as the band whipped through its piles and piles of pop hooks with punk seethe with occasional breaks in between series of songs for Abraham to chat with the crowd. After the encore break it was time for the deep cuts, including a very special performance of a song called “Unrequited Love” with bassist Sandy Miranda on vocals. After closing out the set with the track “David Comes to Life”, Abraham stuck around on stage to help one fan get his phone back, and another person to get their jacket – even after the house music went up. By the time I had broken down my equipment and left quite a bit later, I found Abraham standing outside the venue – still shirtless, on a fairly cold night – chatting with fans. Music is love, indeed.

I recorded this set with an excellent soundboard feed from the Warsaw team, plus the Schoeps supercardiod microphones on a high stand. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

I don’t know what’s in the water up in Ontario, Canada these days, but a serious music scene is percolating in Toronto that is fresh, exciting and varied. PS I Love You are from the college town of Kingston, about three hours from Toronto, but they belong with their Toronto-based brethren when it comes to being part of this burgeoning Canadian scene. This set, opening for NYCTaper favorites Diamond Rings, showed off the chops of guitarist/vocals Paul Saulnier and drummer Benjamin Nelson admirably, as they delivered a tight set that consisted primarily of songs from their rave-reviewed 2010 effort, Meet Me At the Muster Station, as well as a couple of new songs. The set closer, “Leftovers,” off of a recent 7″ with Diamond Rings, spanned nearly twice the time of the rest of Saulnier’s focused tunes, and found John O’Regan himself joining the band in the effort. Saulnier, who began the band as a solo project, gives voice to his angst live even more palpably than on the band’s studio outings, and he and Nelson can shred with the best of them. Beneath Saulnier’s pitched yowl and the squalls of feedback, it’s not hard to hear the real musicianship of PS I Love You; they may be a two-man band, but I would not call them a “garage rock duo.” We were sorry to miss the second post-midnight set that the band performed after Diamond Rings’ performance, but this 40-minute set was an excellent introduction to another talented new act. Montreal had an incredible run of acts coming up in the late 90s and early 2000s, but they’d better watch out – their brethren to the west are the trailblazers these days.

hi and lo recorded this set with the Schoeps microphones and a soundboard feed from Kevin at Mercury Lounge. Other than a few glitches in a connection during the first song and occasional spots of chatter toward the end of the set, this recording is flawless. Thanks to PS I Love You and Paper Bag Records for permitting us to make and share this recording. Enjoy!

[Photo by acidjack with iPhone4 with Hipstamatic]

Toronto’s Austra came to town with one of that music scene’s current favorite sons, Diamond Rings, who referred to them later that night as “my favorite band.” This set at Glasslands gave many of us our first taste of a band that is likely to get big in a hurry, as they just signed to the UK’s famed Domino Records just a few days ago (with a new record on the way this spring), and have embarked on an extensive European tour. The brainchild of well-known Toronto-based vocalist Katie Stelmanis (Autra is actually her middle name), Austra play dreamy leftfield pop at home in the current moment; those searching for references might think about a band like The Knife; I also hear a less poppy, less histrionic bit of a band like Florence and the Machine as well (listen to “Lose It” for the reference). The centerpiece of the band’s sound is unquestionably Stelmanis’ powerful vocals, which soar above the driving electro beats. Expect to see Austra again stateside for SXSW, and look out for a video from them next month!

I recorded this set from the same location as the Diamond Rings recording, and other than some isolated crackling from the house system, the sound is outstanding. Enjoy!
