Acid Mothers Temple: April 23, 2014 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Full Set Streaming

May 2, 2014

Acid Mothers Temple have achieved the cult status they have for good reason — their shows are always deliciously familiar, yet never the same twice. You always know you’ll hear some version of “Pink Lady Lemonade”, however it may be broken up into parts. That familiar riff always feels like an anchor in the midst of a set that’s usually a deep, spiritual, psychedelic dive, where you’re never sure the band is entirely aware of where they’re going to take you before they do. The Acid Mothers kicked off their latest U.S. tour at Mercury Lounge, a familiar haunt packed to the gills with everyone from longtime devotees tripping balls to dumbstruck yuppies wondering what they had wandered into. Their latest record, In Search of Lost Divine Ark, adds another notch of sonic triumph to their belt, and the title track from the record closed out this set in exactly the way you’d hope.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed provided by longtime Mercury engineer Kevin Mazzarelli, together with Schoeps MK41 microphones. The recording emphasizes the board feed to cut out the chatter of the annoying couple chatting under my mics, who are pretty much invisible in the recording. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

If you can assist with the two missing song titles, please let us know. Acid Mothers Temple will be back in NYC on May 28 at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Get tickets here.

    Louder than the universe indeed. My ears rang for a day and a half. They always make it hurt so good!

    Track 4 is a modified version of the same “Om Riff” they played last year in between the Pink Lady Lemonades.
