We hadn’t seen Deleted Scenes since a showcase in Brooklyn at the start of this decade, so the excellent unofficial DC Against The World SXSW day show put on at the New Movement Theater improv club proved a great way to catch up. The dark interior of the New Movement provided the perfect mood space to take in the new songs from the band’s latest effort, Lithium Burn, released this April, which has proven a worthy follow-up to the band’s well-received two previous full-lengths. In keeping with their DC-based roots, Deleted Scenes’ off-kilter art rock defies categorization in the same way their predecessors Dismemberment Plan, Q and Not U and others did, blending elements of that scene’s post-Fugazi punk with a kind of big-but-broken hearted confessional lyrical style. Despite the dark environs and material (culled exclusively from Lithium Burn), this was a band obviously thrilled to be here, ready to get back on the horse and share their new work with the wider world. They’ll be doing just that this Wednesday at Baby’s All Right in NYC, so if you’re in NYC, check it out!

I recorded this set in the same manner as the other recordings from this show, with Schoeps MK4V microphones and a soundboard feed. The sound quality is limited by the humble PA setup and the sound of the room, but it is overall a good listen. Enjoy!
