Waxahatchee: July 15, 2017 Warsaw BK

Last September, Katie and Allison Crutchfield’s first major band PS Eliot reunited for a brief tour and the results were quite impressive. The show we captured at Market Hotel was one of the best nights of last year. Ten months later, Katie’s main band Waxahatchee has released its latest album and it appears that last year’s return to the earlier emo/punk of her career influenced the sound of the new album. Out In the Storm (Merge Records) was produced by the great John Agnello whose credits include Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth, and it comes as no surprise that this is the most guitar-centric Waxahatchee album. That being said, its also undoubtedly the best sounding album in the band’s catalog and the song-writing fits perfectly with the production. The record chronicles the inner conflict of a person going through a difficult break-up and the anger and aggression and the power production matches perfectly.

Waxahatchee is currently on tour and the Brooklyn show was advertised as an album release show. Katie and Allison are originally from Alabama and currently live in Philadelphia, but each have great affection for Brooklyn. And as became obvious at this sold out Warsaw show, the borough loves them too. This was the largest show in the band’s history and they certainly rose to the occasion. With a crack band behind them, the sisters played a powerful set of material from the the last three albums mixed pretty evenly, but it was the newer tracks that brought the energy. If music is the universal emotional healing elixir, then whatever damage was suffered by the protagonist of Out In The Storm should have been thoroughly exorcised by the close of this outstanding show.

Waxahatchee is on an extensive world tour that last through November. Their many dates on posted on their Facebook page [here].

I recorded this set with the Neumann hypercardioids mixed with and board feed, and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Feral Ohms: June 24, 2017 Union Pool (Summer Thunder)

June 29, 2017

[photos by PSquared Photography]

Though this was their NYC debut, Ethan Miller’s latest garage fuzzout band, Feral Ohms, began quietly releasing singles on his Silver Current label way back in 2013. What the hell took them so long? Well, Miller’s had some other stuff going on like Howlin’ Rain, Heron Oblivion, and the too-damn-short Comets on Fire reunion from that same year. So we’ll let Feral Ohms skate on their longtime absence from the East Coast. Besides, the band—that’s Miller on guitar and vocals, Josh Haynes on bass, and Chris Johnson on drums—made up for it and then some with this literally scorching Saturday afternoon outdoor set as part of Union Pool’s Summer Thunder series. They played the entire self-titled record to huge smiles all around as the packed crowd took in the sun and the tunes. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long before the ’Ohms come back this way again.

I recorded this with the mics set up on stage, combined with a board feed courtesy of Union Pool engineer Doug. It sounds excellent. Enjoy!

Ween: June 6, 2017 Brooklyn Steel

June 11, 2017
By

Our friend Chris Davis from “Team Dirty South” came north to capture this show for NYCTaper, and he reports:

Ween @ Brooklyn Steel on June 6, 2017 – A Team Dirty South/NYCTaper Joint

After some mild subway misdirection, an uber dropped me off at Brooklyn Steel exactly at 7:00. I was surprised to find a long line well around the corner. In Charleston, music fans show up an hour late for everything. This was my first indication that this Brooklyn Ween crowd was hungry and eagerly anticipating this two-night run following the band’s reuniting just last year. Conversation around me in line was entirely Ween focused: a spirited Brooklyn Bowl-Las Vegas February run discussion, Sunday’s Baltimore setlist review and expectations for the evening. Clearly, this crowd was excited and ready for a rock show.

The line moved quickly and in about 10 minutes I was getting patted down at the entrance. My recording gear seemed to be understood; however the microphone stand was a source of confusion. Luckily, the NYCTaper crew had rolled out the red carpet and I knew exactly who to ask for. Another taper and I waited patiently until Anthony, the venue manager came over. Anthony had seen the likes of us before; and quickly instructed us on how Brooklyn Steel wants it done. No worries, Anthony was very accommodating and friendly, and instantly we were inside hoisting mics and pressing buttons.

Wow. This crowd was ravenous. Fans started screaming around 8:00 and didn’t stop. The place erupted when Ween took the stage around 8:30. Meandering slowly into “The Stallion”, then launching into “You Fucked Up”; this crowd knew the gloves were off and we were all in for a serious “all ages” Ween show! The set was richly scattered with Ween favorites (or classics if you can say that about the Ween catalog): “Transdermal”, “Push the Daisies”, “Roses are Free”, things were moving on and the Ween crowd was fully engaged. I heard very little crowd chatter and the recording reflects it. The band continued on through a twisty “HIV Song” and a rocking “Spinal Meningitis”. About halfway through the set, Gene pulled out the acoustic and announced “this is the first time we’ve ever played this”, and tuned into the opening chords of “Among His Tribe” off the 2003 Quebec album. What a surprise! As if not to take themselves or the moment too seriously, Ween followed quickly with “Piss Up a Rope”. The room would erupt again when the band announced a “nice party jam” and led us through David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”; a cover recently performed in Baltimore after a 6 year absence since New Years 2011. Immediately following, we were treated to the first live version of “Seconds” since summer 2002. The band lit the room up again with a super-funky “Going Gets Tough”, then winded things down with “Someday”. After a nearly 5-minute encore break; Ween gave us a Gene-less “Fiesta”, with Gene returning to the stage to shut things down with “The Mollusk”. The band left the stage at 10:42, following a few mentions of “tomorrow night”. Ween certainly left this crowd engaged and primed for another show!

I was a quick Uber back to Manhattan by 11:15, with a Shake Shack burger and a bottle of cabernet delivered to my hotel room, only in NYC for this Team Dirty South taper!

Ween: June 7, 2017 Brooklyn Steel

June 9, 2017
By

For the second night of Ween‘s run at shiny new venue Brooklyn Steel, the band continued to reiterate what has made them such a cult favorite. As a newcomer to the band, I can’t claim to be any kind of expert in the ins and outs of the setlists, but if you’re curious what has made them one of the more welcome “reunions” of recent years, I can offer some thoughts. First, the musical diversity of the band’s sound has long been well-known, mixing bar-room rock, punk, psychedelia, country, new wave, funk and more. Though the recent accumulation of Phish fans to their ranks has been talked about, the more logical touch points for understanding this band are willfully-weird bands like the Butthole Surfers and the Meat Puppets, who similarly can’t be pigeonholed into a genre so much as a vibe. Second, in Ween’s case, there’s a brand of outrageous humor at work in many of their songs, of a kind that prompts debate on the Internet over the funniest Ween songs. Whether or not songs like “Deez Nutz” or “Bananas and Blow” are your thing doesn’t necessarily determine whether you have to like or dislike the live show, just as some Phish get more turned on by the Gamehendge element than others. Personally, I was more fired up about songs like the sprawling 1994 jam “A Tear for Eddie,” or 1990’s Butthole Surfers-esque “Licking the Palm for Guava” (also dedicated here to Gibby Haynes).

Since I know fairly little about the band, I decided to consult a long time fan on the show to get his take. In his read, compared to the previous Brooklyn Steel show, this was a relatively sedate affair, focusing more on the band’s country sound and skipping some of what this fan deemed “essential” Ween songs such as a classic cover, or any of “Dr. Rock,” “Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down),” “Push the Little Daisies,” “You Fucked Up,” “Golden Eel,” and “Buckinham Green” — all of which made it into the first night setlist.  Along with the “A Tear For Eddie” that I did, he pointed out that “Mushroom Festival In Hell” and “I’ll Be Your Johnny On the Spot” as highlights.

Wherever you are in your Ween fandom, you can’t deny that they’re as hard working a band as they come. When they promised “an evening” with them, we got one, a full two hours and ten minutes of mostly uninterrupted playing that fired up the slam-packed Brooklyn Steel floor. I have no doubt that the show was ten times more engaging for those better acquainted with the inside jokes and the general band lore, but based on this performance, I’d be up for finding out more.

Finally, if you haven’t been to Brooklyn Steel yet, know that longtime sufferers of its predecessor will finally have a mid-large venue for more popular bands that offers a full view of the stage from almost every place in the room. We’ve already enjoyed a few shows here so far, and look forward to many more. As always thanks to the professional staff of Bowery Presents for making our presence there feel both safe and welcome.

I recorded this set from the “taper’s section” with Schoeps MK41V microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Night one was also recorded and will be posted soon.

Horse Lords: June 4, 2017 Sunnyvale

June 8, 2017
By


[photo by nyctaper]

Last Summer during a heat wave we hosted a show headlined by Horse Lords at Trans-Pecos and it was a glorious night of cool air and even cooler music. EricPH “found” this band for the site in 2015, but by 2016 their Northern Spy album Interventions put them on the map for all of us. Horse Lords is comprised of four superb musicians with not only music-school skills but the touch and timing to play incredibly intricate music in complete sync with each other. They combine the best parts of prog, jazz and math rock into extended suites in the live setting that inspires repeated listens.

On Sunday night at Sunnyvale, Horse Lords brought out the diehards and there are now quite a few of these enlightened folks. The crowd wasn’t overwhelming, but those who were there were all-in — the band’s peaks and valley and twists and turns had the entire crowd hanging on for dear life. The set was culled primarily from Interventions but also included one extended older cut to finish the set. From my vantage point at the front of the stage, it was a quite an impressive image of four musicians instinctively in tune with each other. Horse Lords are a band not to be missed, and we will continue to follow this outstanding group.

Horse Lords are currently on a short midwest tour which visits Toronto, Cleveland and Chicago beginning tonight through Friday. All dates and venues here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted at the front of the stage and mixed with an excellent board feed. The mix of the two sources compliments perfectly and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Eugene Chadbourne & Sunwatchers: April 25, 2017 Union Pool

May 30, 2017
By

Back in April, psych-freejazz outfit Sunwatchers did a three-week residency at Union Pool, each week performing with some local and not-so-local friends. To cap off the residency they brought out Eugene Chadbourne for an opening set (that recording here) plus a very special collaboration between Chadbourne and the ‘Watchers. It doesn’t get much better than these guys performing some Minutemen, Sonny Rollins, and Chuck Berry tunes together—but then somehow it does when they break free of Earth’s gravity on John Lee Hooker’s “Boogie Chillen.” Apparently there’s going to be an album featuring Sunwatchers backing Doc Chad (Chadwatchers, anyone?) and if that manages to be half as good as this set, it’ll be something for sure.

I recorded this from our usual location at Union Pool with a board feed courtesy of our bud Doug. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Animal Collective: May 23, 2017 Brooklyn Steel

May 29, 2017
By


[photos by Will Oliver of We All Want Someone blog]

Last year, I wrote about this site’s history with Animal Collective and celebrated the serious rejuvenation of the band’s fortunes. That show at Irving Plaza was our first introduction to the live performances of the Painting With material. We also caught the show later in the year at Terminal 5. In the ensuing months, Animal Collective released two EPs with material related to the album and continued to tour. This Spring saw their return to NYC for a show at the new Bowery Presents venue Brooklyn Steel and last Tuesday’s show was perhaps the most powerful Animal Collective performance we’ve experienced in more than a decade of seeing the band.

This was our first experience at Brooklyn Steel and I was impressed. There’s definitely a nice vibe to the venue, and the sound quality from our vantage point was on point — full spectrum rich sound with no boominess at all. The intensity of the acoustics in the venue served the band well, as Animal Collective provided thundering bass beats to accompany the multi-layered three-pronged sound delivery system. This tour’s version of the band features Panda, Geologist and Avey across the front accompanied by drummer Jeremy Hyman at center rear of the stage. The set featured much of the recent material but also satisfied long-time fans with older tracks democratically selected from their many releases and some deep cuts not heard in years. The sold-out crowd called the band back after a healthy 75 minute main set and we were treated to an extended encore set that closed the night with a lengthy and rousing version of “Summertime Clothes”.

Animal Collective’s tour continues with some June and July shows, all dates [here].

I recorded this set with the Neumann hypercards mounted at the elevated area inside of the soundboard area and with the mics raised high. The amazing sound in the venue and the choice of microphones worked perfectly as this recording is really quite superb. Enjoy!

Eugene Chadbourne: April 25, 2017 Union Pool

May 17, 2017
By

Eugene Chadbourne—Doc Chad for the familiar—is likely the only musician living who could (would?) play you a Woody Guthrie song on the banjo and also destroy your eardrums with the electric rake. With literally zillions of releases over the last forty years, he’s done folk, jazz, rock, noise, and everything in between. In fact, it’s those in betweens where Doc Chad spends most of his time, never stagnating on one genre, one band, one collaborator, or even one instrument—as if any of those things could claim to define his music. Yes, Doc Chad is a national treasure.

This set from Union Pool a few weeks back has got all the goods: covers of Guthrie and Beefheart, an ode to Conway Twitty, a medly of Johnny Paycheck tunes, and some Chadbourne originals. No electric rake, but you can’t have everything can you?

I recorded this from our usual location at Union Pool with a board feed courtesy of our bud Doug. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

Meat Puppets: May 10, 2017 Brooklyn Bowl

May 15, 2017
By


[Photo by Dean Keim]

Thirty-five years ago when the Meat Puppets released their first album they were the punk band that was also into the Grateful Dead. To save you from doing the math, that was wayyyyyy before it was cool to like both punk rock and the Dead. That’s all to say the Meat Puppets have always been ahead of their time. And they’ve seen it all: SST in the early eighties when it was the independent record label; performing their songs on perhaps the most beloved MTV Unplugged of all time; a massive hit song with “Backwater” and the Gold Record to match. But there’s no better testament to their lasting vitality than a packed Brooklyn Bowl for a Wednesday night show. Dig the fiery “Touchdown King” and a sixteen-minute “Up on the Sun” and see the light.

The Tour Tour Two with Mike Watt continues. Check here for dates.

Mike Watt + The Jom and Terry Show: May 10, 2017 Brooklyn Bowl

May 14, 2017

[Photo by Dean Keim]

It’s an absolute shame it took me this long to see Mike Watt live. I recall as a teenager hearing about the epic Watt/Foo Fighters/Hovercraft tour of 1995—recently documented on Ring Spiel Tour ’95—and not quite knowing who this guy was except for “Against the 70s.” A few years later I would learn of the Minutemen and fIREHOSE, but still it never seemed to work out to catch Watt live. Last week I rectified that in the best way possible. Watt has been playing off and on with Tom Watson (guitar) and Jerry Trebotic (drums) since 2001 and they’ve got the whole spiel down pat. Twenty-seven songs in under an hour with a whole bunch of Minutemen favorites thrown in—pure joy.
