It may have been dreary and pouring outside of Cake Shop at the start of the NYCTaper Unofficial CMJ Day Party, but Beach Day brought some Florida sunshine to brighten the day’s kickoff. The Hollywood, FL band treads some of the same ground as like-minded beach-named acts (that is surfy/garage-y rock) distinguished by the vocals of guitarist/vocalist Kimmy Drake, whose vocals are as sweet as any I heard all weekend. The once two-piece of Drake and Skyler Black, the band’s drummer, expanded to four by the time of this show, and the more robust sound did the band’s songs justice. Their music is deliciously retro, with songwriting of the AM radio/earworm variety. I haven’t been able to get “I’m Just Messin’ Around” and the heavier “Pretty” for more than a week. Both songs can be found on the band’s latest Kanine Records release, Native Echoes, and I recommend you grab one before the weather here in New York gets any worse.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the other shows on this day, with Schoeps MK4V microphones at the stage lip and an excellent soundboard feed from Clint, the house engineer. Enjoy!

Bleeding Rainbow: February 12, 2013 Glasslands – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

Bleeding Rainbow just released their first album, Yeah Right, under that band name, but the husband-and-wife team of Rob Garcia and Sarah Everton have been making music together for several years. As the band Reading Rainbow, the pair put out a couple of lo-fi records that hinted at, but didn’t fully deliver on their potential. With Yeah Right, the band has a masterfully produced record that does. Now joined by Greg Frantz on drums and Al Creedon on guitar, the beefed-up lineup has developed a rich, shoegaze sound with a newly-minted pop sheen. This show at Glasslands was the first NYC gig for the Philadelphia band since the record’s release, and they came out blazing. After a brief false start, the band launched into an extended version of the record’s leadoff track, “Go Ahead”, followed by the record’s next to two tracks, “Pink Ruff” and “Drift Away”.  One thing that sets Bleeding Rainbow apart from many like-minded acts is that they aren’t afraid to actually sing rather than let their vocals be buried in the washes of MBV-style guitars. Though Everton provides the lead vocal on most tracks, Garcia’s harmonizing with her gives the songs added depth. The pair mesh well together live, feeding off of each other’s energy, and enjoying the added freedom lent by the new personnel.  Bleeding Rainbow have set themselves on a path that will give them even more room to grow, and we look forward to watching that happen.

I recorded this set from our usual position in the venue with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones and a soundboard feed provided by longtime Glasslands engineer Josh.  The sound quality is excellent.  Enjoy!

Thanks to Kanine Records for obtaining permission for us to record this show.

Young Prisms: March 5, 2012 Glasslands – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

One of the rewarding aspects of witnessing a band live for the first time is the recognition that despite youthfulness, the artists understand what has come before. Young Prisms are aptly named — the band members are in their early 20’s, but could pass for high school kids. But as soon as the instruments are plugged in and the first song is counted in, they age immediately. The San Francisco natives play psych-rock as if they were born in the 60s and they play it with confidence and maturity. The dual guitars and drums are out front, and the heavily reverbed dream-like vocals fit comfortably in the mix. As another excellent signing by Kanine Records, Young Prisms are also productive. Their latest album will be their third full length, and they’ve also released an EP and several split 7″ singles. In Between will be released by Kanine on March 27, and at Glasslands last Monday, Young Prisms played a set heavy with the new material, and the strength of the new songs is readily apparent from first listen. We are streaming “Four Hours (Away)” which closed the set on a high note.

I recorded this set with the new permanently-installed ‘nyctaper’ microphones at Glasslands. The Studio Projects LSD2 is a single-body stereo-microphone configured in the XY cardioid setting and is mounted in the center pole approximately fifteen feet from the stage. The mics are mixed with a soundboard feed and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Royal Baths: December 9, 2011 Glasslands – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

I have wanted to see Royal Baths for over at least a year now, since this site last attempted to cover one of the band’s New York shows. Last year’s ill-fated attempt was a gig at Monster Island Basement that, let’s just say, suffered from some human failings. But I didn’t care – the band’s debut album on Woodsist Records, Litanies, was one of my absolute favorites of last year. Woozy, dark and catchy as hell, the record sounded perfectly like their hometown of San Francisco, evoking that city’s 60s fixation without being trapped by it. Knowing that this Kanine Records (their new label) party at Glasslands would feature a strong lineup of bands and top-notch sound engineering, I calculated that this would be our chance to capture a memorable set.

I was right.  The band that showed up for this show was lightyears beyond the act we saw a year ago – focused, poised, and powering their way through a number of songs that will appear on their forthcoming record on Kanine, Better Luck Next Life. The new tunes continue in the dark vein of Litanies, but feel a bit tighter, with a tad less of the ramshackle feel that characterized Litanies.  They also offered up some of my favorite tunes from that record, including “Sitting In My Room”, and rolled out a truly bizarre cover – Nina Simone’s “Be My Husband” (I had to Google lyrics to figure that one out, and still had it wrong the first time..)  They closed out with a lengthy psychedelic new number that once again highlighted their musical chops. Clearly, moving to New York was good for these guys.  I can’t wait for the new record.

hi and lo and I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones and a flawless soundboard feed from Josh, the house engineer at Glasslands.  The sound quality is outstanding.  Enjoy!

Better Luck Next Life will be released on Kanine Records on February 7, 2012.  Pre-order the record [HERE]  Thanks to Kanine Records for granting permission to record.

Surfer Blood: April 29, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

Since we first caught them at the Market Hotel back when they were a mostly-unknown Florida band, Surfer Blood have become a bit of an indie staple. And for good reason: Their sound is infectious, upbeat and delivered with a great attitude. After touring the hell out of their breakout debut Astro Coast, the band began writing the new material that eventually became their new EP release, Tarot Classics. Several of those songs were on display at this show, a sellout of the Bowery Ballroom, which the band co-headlined with …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (that recording here). The band were in good spirits, no doubt in awe themselves of how far they had come since a moderately-attended CMJ show less than two years before. Tarot Classics, while only a snapshot, shows that in terms of pop relevance, Surfer Blood have plenty more in the tank. That was evidenced by two followup shows at the Northside Festival, including an opening slot for Guided by Voices.

At the request of Kanine Records, we did not release any Surfer Blood recordings containing Tarot Classics material until the EP was released. We also have two outstanding matrix recordings of the band’s Northside Festival sets that we will offer in the coming days. Thanks to Kanine for their continued support of excellent music and our efforts here at NYCTaper.
