Here we have it—another bone-crushing, mind-rattling set from Brooklyn’s notorious Beech Creeps. I had thought these guys put on a monstrous set last time I saw them at Union Pool, but that was nothing. The addition of Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on drums has turned a great band into a formidable one. Their new 7″ out on Monofonus Press absolutely crushes, and we got to hear both sides of that disc at the Monofonus Press Northside Showcase a couple weeks back. A-side “Creeps Can’t Swim” and b-side “Deep in the Dive” both pack a mean punch, and the band even breaks out a new song, “Suntan Man” (the title itself sounds pretty damn skeevy). If you have the opportunity to catch these guys live, I have to pretty much insist that you do so. No further dates currently, but if you’re in Brooklyn, you’ll have ample opportunity.

I recorded this set from our usual location in the venue, combined with a board feed from Union Pool FOH Robert. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!
