The Brooklyn band Quiet Lights was high on my list of artists to invite to our inaugural Northside Festival showcase, and they delivered, closing out the NYCTaper Northside Festival showcase at Public Assembly with an intense set of songs that included most of their recently-released EP, The Big Fear. As with the first time I saw them at the Knitting Factory, they brought a dense, heavy sound with them, leavened by vocalist Yseult Tyler’s dreamscape vocals. Theirs is the sound of the late night or a slow-breaking dawn, and that made for a perfect late-night ending to a very long weekend of late nights.

I recorded this set with the AKG large-diaphragm microphones and a soundboard feed, as with the other sets from this show. This set emphasizes the soundboard feed a bit more heavily and sounds quite good. Enjoy!
