It is really quite rewarding when NYCTaper has a positive effect, however small, on the careers of the bands we love. At Naked Hearts outstanding set at the NYCTaper CMJ Show, there was a writer for Deli Magazine in the audience who was impressed enough to publish an article about the band called “Watch out for these guys: Naked Hearts“. That article likely resulted in Deli’s affiliated music promotion site Jezebel Music booking Naked Hearts at their December showcase at The Delancey on December 6. Naked Hearts also return to play at Cake Shop on December 18.

Last Saturday we had the opportunity to see Naked Hearts as a two-piece. Noah has moved from bass to drums and literally and figuratively has not missed a beat. At Union Hall, Naked Hearts delivered such an outstanding set as an opening act that an observant audience member shouted out “hey, you guys are good!”. Guitarist/Vocalist Amy responded with a modest “thanks” and a knowing smile. Naked Hearts release their debut EP These Knees on January 20, 2009 in vinyl and digital download formats.

We recorded from the identical location as the Jeremy Messersmith recording, and the sound quality is superb. There are no chatters on this recording, just a crystal clear capture of an excellent band. Enjoy!
