Brooklyn’s NYMPH took things to another level of the eclectic at the standout Northern Spy / Ba Da Bing SXSW Showcase this past March. Like many of the other acts on this night’s bill, the seven-piece is exuberantly unconventional, drawing inspiration from psychedelic rock, free jazz, kraut, and damaged blues. This three-song, thirty-two minute set included the title track from the band’s first Northern Spy release, New Millennium Prayer, which should be on any fan of experimental/out music’s list of 2014 releases to own. With each composition stretching past the seven-minute mark, every song became a chance for the band to explore, and those of us in the audience to rage on the floor in return. As the band’s Facebook page promises, “Witnessing NYMPH at peak power is akin to witnessing ritual.” Having seen what I saw this night, I’d say I agree.

I recorded this set in the same manner as my other recordings this night, with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the optimum position hanging over the crowd and a soundboard feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
