The Brooklyn band Hunters grab your eye right away, thanks to lead vocalist Isabel Almeida’s shock-pink hair and hyperkinetic onstage manner. What holds your interest are their songs, which you mind find yourself humming long after you’re back on the street. This Oh My Rockness CMJ show at Cameo Gallery gave the band headlining status, and they made the most of it, leading us through a rapid-fire set consisting of songs from their eponymous debut album and their underrated Hands on Fire EP from 2011. The night had run long, but Hunters had saved more than enough energy to deliver an excellent set, Almeida and vocalist-guitarist Derek Watson’s vocals coasting on a bed of fuzzed-out guitars. If the measure of a good CMJ show is actually being able to remember what you saw a week or even a single night later, Hunters should count this show a win. You don’t soon forget the experience of seeing them.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from well-known local sound engineer Gary Atturio, combined with Schoeps MK4V microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
