SAVAK: December 1, 2023 Tubby’s

February 1, 2024
By

I’m appreciating more and more that the bands I love who I would regularly see in Brooklyn have made Tubby’s a regular spot. It’s like Union Pool north and you just might spot someone you recognize. We saw SAVAK there last year with Chris Brokaw and again in December with New Wet Kojak. This time the band showed up augmented with a second drummer, SAVAK-regular Matt Schulz joined by Jeff Gensterblum set up in the center of the Tubby’s floor. The two pounded away for a really unique set. The more drummers the better I always say!

This set features a few songs I hadn’t heard live from SAVAK, like “Oddsmaker” off their last album Human Error/Human Delight which I was glad to finally hear. No new songs in the set but SAVAK do have a new album out soon: Flavors of Paradise, which can be preordered over at Bandcamp.

If the regular Union Pool is still you’re spot, you have a couple upcoming chances to catch SAVAK. The first is a free show on February 20th with J. Robbins of Jawbox fame. You couldn’t possibly go wrong there. Claim your free ticket here. Next up, on March 7th, SAVAK will play a record release show for Flavors Of Paradise. Grab those tickets here.

I recorded this from our usual spot at Tubby’s. Will provided a perfectly-mixed board feed and Sohrab Habibion sweetened things up with his mastering. The sound is killer. Enjoy!

Tengger: October 1, 2023 Tubby’s Fifth Anniversary

October 31, 2023
By

Today begins our coverage of Tubby’s Fifth Anniversary party with deep Kosmische zones courtesy of Tengger

The Pan-Asian traveling family came to town on day 3 of the event to play at the outdoor stage the Tubby’s team put together by turning Field Court into a block party.  It’s hard to express how emotional this set was to see and hear.  When I first moved to Kingston, nearly 20 years ago, the idea that I would spend a Sunday afternoon in a dead-end street off Broadway doing anything other than being mugged would have been an impossibility. Instead, several hundred people stood still and quiet and let Tengger’s sound fill their hearts and souls. The zones were so deep that at least two people were laid out across the ground; staring into the sky and probably much further while RAAI walked through the crowd chiming bells. It’s this exact spirit of adventurous acceptance that I’ve come to love and expect of Tubby’s crowds. 

Tengger’s sonic makeup is an interesting dichotomy.  In constructing their drones and soundscapes they often rely on making the very quiet seem very huge.  This is a complicated issue from a sound and production stance because there is A LOT of gain involved and that often means a lot of feedback. A touch of that is evident during the first track, Water, but Tubby’s super team of Will on house mix and Kyle on monitors tamed the beast quickly.  I recorded this from the Soundboard with my MBHO’s and the FOH team’s superb mix.  The sound is excellent, and I truly hope it was heard throughout the entire town. 

Special thanks to friend of the site Mike Newman for facilitating things with the band and getting the ok to post this!

Ned Collette: August 19, 2023 Deep In The Valley

The NycTaper coverage of the 2023 Deep In The Valley festival continues!  For today’s installment we have Ned Collette, the Australian born, Berlin based songwriter and producer that came to town to play a beautiful early afternoon set for us all.  

The set opened with “The Laughter Across The Street” from 2006’s “Jokes & Trials” immediately finds Ned, with Elisabeth Fuchsia on viola, occupying a space that feels unique in “folk” music. A strange and beautiful and dark space where the songs are a cross between Jim O’Rourke and Judee Sill. Listening to this now, with the leaves falling in the Hudson Valley, feels just right.

I had initially sent my mix of this recording to Ned who asked if he might take a crack at doing a touch more EQ.  Eventually, I ended up sending him my masters which he worked on in his studio and the result is the beautiful sounding mix we have here.  Using my MBHO mics positioned at stage lip for instrument presence and the excellent board feed courtesy of FOH engineer Daniele Stout for vocal clarity Ned gives us a mix far better than what I produced!  Enjoy!

Our coverage of the 2023 Deep In The Valley festival continues! 

Has it really been four years since we last saw Sunwatchers? Unbelievable! Fortunately nothing interesting has happened since 2019 and so we pick up right where we left off. But just a few things in the interim: Sunwatchers put out the righteous duo Oh Yeah? and Brave Rats in 2020; Jim McHugh put out a pair of work-abolishin’, eye-lazer shootin’ solo records the same year; Peter Kerlin’ released a guest-filled, wide-ranging experimental solo record; and Jeff Tobias released a trio of rad tapes/records just in the last year or so. Whew!

But wait, there’s more! Sunwatchers will release Music is Victory Over Time in just a couple months. These two sets we saw this year will serve as a good preview of what’s to come and it sounds pretty damn awesome. So be sure to preorder that right away. Meanwhile, enjoy this double dose of Sunwatchers to start your week.

Garcia Peoples: August 19, 2023 Deep In The Valley

Our coverage of the 2023 Deep In The Valley festival continues! 

Today we have site favorites Garcia Peoples set. Unfortunately, Danny (Guitar, Vocals) and Cesar (Drums) were unable to make it. Thankfully a friend of the band, Ryan Jewell, was on hand to play with Ryley Walker and was able to sit in. With this unique line-up, the band treated us to a single 30+ minute piece of improvisation. 

Launching into free improv isn’t something new for Garcia Peoples. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things about them. They are so comfortable with it that I often don’t know if it’s truly improv or a new song they are working on. It’s honestly embarrassing how many times I’ve had to go up to Tom or Andy after a set and ask if something they did was song I don’t know or just jam. Spoiler alert; it’s almost always a jam.

I recorded this with my MBHO cards at stage lip and very nice board feed from FOH engineer Daniel Stout. The quality is excellent!

Ryley Walker: August 19, 2023 Deep in the Valley

August 24, 2023
By

Welcome to our coverage of Deep in the Valley 2023! The second year of our favorite Hudson Valley fest was again held at beautiful From the Ground Brewery in Red Hook, NY and hosted by our friends at Raven Sings the Blues. Thanks to everyone involved for their hospitality. I can’t wait to see you there next year. In the meantime, relax and enjoy some tunes from the day…

First off here’s the day’s headliner Ryley Walker, playing in duo configuration with Ryan Jewell. While not quite full-band, seeing Ryley and Ryan together is always magical and this performance doesn’t disappoint in the least. Ryley-classics “The Halfwit in Me” and “The Roundabout” take center stage here with the jams and detours we love from these songs. I’m a massive fan of Course in Fable and consider it Ryley’s finest, so I was glad to hear “Rang Dizzy” from that one. The last song is an instrumental which I’m sure has a title that is escaping me. Listening back I almost feel like I’m in a field in Red Hook, New York with some apple trees off to the side. This one’s the highlight of a nearly perfect day.

I recorded this with the MBHO omnis at the stage lip, combined with a board feed courtesy of engineer Daniel Stout. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Rose City Band: July 23, 2023 Tubby’s (Kingston, NY)

July 27, 2023
By

I’ve been waiting for years to see a Rose City Band show. For 18 of those months, we were all waiting to see anything but even once shows started happening the band didn’t come East. When they finally had East Coast dates booked the tour was, sadly, cancelled due to covid. This past Sunday it finally happened. Rose City Band played their first show EVER in NY at Tubby’s and we have the recording. 

Rose City Band is Ripley Johnson’s (Wooden Shjips, Moon Duo) outlet for fusing the musical loves of his youth; Neil Young, Grateful Dead and Van Morrison are noticeable touch points, with the classic country sounds of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and the like. During interviews Ripley has often referred to this as summertime music and that’s always the association I’ve had with it. I have vivid memories of sitting on my deck in late spring and early summer of 2020 with nothing to do but enjoy the sunshiny reverb and pedal steel from the first two Rose City Band albums. Nowhere to go, no one to see. Nothing to do but enjoy the turn of the season and the tunes. That experience hasn’t changed much. It’s always as the sun starts coming out in the Hudson Valley that I turn to these albums. 

During the recording process Ripley has historically handled the heavy lifting alone but live he is supported by an excellent band of Portland heavy hitters. They opened the show with a breezy take on “Empty Bottles” from 2020’s Summerlong eventually making their way to a fantastic medley of Mariposa> Me and Willie > Reno Shuffle that truly embraced the choogle-charged, sun baked flow of Cosmic Americana. The sold-out crowd was loud and appreciative all night. New Yorkers aren’t well known for their friendliness but hopefully the band felt the love we gave them for their first trip to the state. 

Rose City Band has two more shows left on this leg of the tour before a short break. They will be back at it in early September for another run of East Coast shows with support from Rosali. These will be must see shows if you are in the area; Rosali with the David Nance band backing her was the best set of music I saw all last year. Rose City Band then swings back west in October before heading to Europe in November. Plenty of chances to get out and see them! 

I recorded this from my usual spot in the back of the room by the soundboard with my MBHO’s. Tubby’s FOH engineer Kyle provided the excellent mix and board feed. Enjoy!

Purling Hiss: April 23, 2023 Union Pool

June 11, 2023
By

Purling Hiss hit the road for the first time in a while to support their new record on Drag City, Drag On Girard. Last time I saw the ‘Hiss it was a solo Mike Polizze show opening for Dungen. I can’t even remember when that was but oh it’s great to be back. Long before I began contributing here at NYCTaper I followed along with all the excellent recordings especially from the Water on Mars-era. While I would have loved to hear the title track from that one, we got a solid setlist from them closing out their second night at Union Pool, including oldies “Almost Washed My Hair” and “Run From the City.” If you missed Purling Hiss at Union Pool, they’re playing a free show at Rippers on August 25th. Do it!

I recorded this from our usual spot at Union Pool with a feed from the engineer, Jase, who was responsible for the excellent sound all night. And thanks to all the folks for making it one of our favorite venues!

Damon & Naomi: May 9, 2023 Tubby’s (Kingston, NY)

Followers of this site of a certain age (e.g., too old to be seeing rock shows in the middle of the week) will almost certainly have some association with Damon & Naomi’s work. Maybe you have a fond memory from the early 90s of the sun shining, your vision blurred just enough around the edges to let the light and new ideas in and, somewhere in the background, “Strange” is playing from a mixtape. Or maybe that completely hypothetical and totally not autobiographical scenario doesn’t apply, and you just appreciate incredible songwriting with harmonies that can only come from a lifetime of playing music with someone. Either way, we’ve got you covered. 

Tubby’s is a small room and acoustic sets full of ballads can be complicated. On this Wednesday night, the crowd was completely engaged in the moment. We stood enthralled as they worked through songs from their most recent album, 2021’s, “A Sky Record” and beyond. Things got really interesting when they invited their co-headliners, Meg Baird and Charlie Saufley, to join them.  

When Damon casually stated, “Tonight, you’re seeing two duos and two quartets. This is the first appearance of the first quartet,” the room knew special things were about to happen. With Meg on drums and Charlie on guitar they eased into the ghostly and beautiful “Seasons Without Time” and eventually brought the set to fiery close with the Galaxie 500 classic “Another Day.” 

I recorded this from my usual spot by the soundboard with MBHO’s and board feed from Tubby’s FOH engineer Will. Enjoy!

Oneida: August 4, 2022 Tubby’s

May 17, 2023
By

Brahs and Sahs! Here’s your unofficial Oneida chatbot with the news: It’s nearly summer and once again August has been declared the month of Oneida, with tour dates in a bunch of cities you’ve heard of and possibly live in. Last year’s August festivities were interrupted by that nasty bug (but not before we got to see them play Tubby’s), so wish the boys a Success-ful tour and grab your tickets now—dates below!

Soundtrack your buying with this sumptuous gig from last August in support of their latest album Success and general Oneida awesomeness. All the hits from the album are here with some oldies to round things out—I can’t even remember the last time I saw them play “Double Lock Your Mind,” not to mention the fan-favorite “Each One Teach One” making an appearance. But I love the new ones too—they’re like Oneida meets the Ramones? I don’t know but “Rotten,” “I Wanna Hold Your Electric Hand,” and “Beat Me to the Punch” are infectious pop-tunes run through the Oneida riff machine.

I recorded this from our usual spot at Tubby’s with a board feed courtesy of our bud, Will. The sound is excellent. And remember—if you don’t appreciate the Oneida you have we’re not gonna get you another one.
