Generally, when I see a review of a band posted on this website that I wasn’t aware of, I take notice. So it went with the recording of Palehound at the now-in-the-history-books Death By Audio earlier this year. Then there was the memorable opening line, which pointed out that the band’s Hell Bent EP was written by a college freshman and half the band can’t legally buy beer. And thus, a shoo-in for an invite to our annual unofficial CMJ Day Party at Cake Shop was born.

As we noted then, the band continues to work on new material, and this show already served up several strong new numbers that weren’t in that set back in May. The band came out swinging with “Drooler”, followed by several new numbers from the band’s forthcoming album. Frontwoman Ellen Kempner and her full band continue to gel well, and if the new songs are any indication, this much-buzzed-about band should continue to enjoy the fan love for their newest work. While the band only had six songs to work with, they made the most of them, closing out with one of our favorites, “Pet Carrot”. Oddly enough, Kempner originally thought of the song as a reject, but crowds disagreed. We’re glad they did!

I recorded this set in the same manner as our other recordings from this day, with Schoeps MK4V microphones up front and a soundboard feed from house engineer Clint. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
