In July we first witnessed the live High Places at Stuyvesant Town under very similar circumstances — an outdoor show on a beautiful day, with a diverse crowd containing a large majority of people unfamiliar with the band. The result was the same too. Our favorite electronic fusion-pop duo took the opportunity to impress people who otherwise would not ever have heard their music, and by the end of their set the chatty crowd was moving in time to the carib-burg beats.

We recorded this set from the same location as our Awesome Color, and Vivian Girls recordings. There is some wind noise, and Mary’s microphone is mixed too low, but otherwise its an excellent recording. Enjoy!
