November 13, 2010

Keepaway, who were everywhere during this year’s CMJ, fit the NYCTaper Unofficial CMJ Day Party into their schedule, and to great results.  Their tribal sound can veer from jangly rock to trippy sonic freakout rapidly, at times within the same song.  This band sometimes gives you the feeling that they might be fucking with you; they’re in on the joke and ready to party – the question is whether you are.  Part of an emerging group of artists that continue to challenge the already-hazy boundaries between dance and rock music, Keepaway are likely to keep attracting interest, especially if they continue landing prime opening gigs like their slot in front of Yeasayer at Governor’s Island this summer.  This four-song set included some songs from their FREEWilliamsburg showcase this June at Brooklyn Bowl, as well as a new song we were not familiar with.

I recorded this set in the same manner as our other CMJ sets.  The quality is excellent.  Enjoy!
