Delicate Steve: March 5, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

When we saw Delicate Steve in February at Knitting Factory, it was the first night of their tour supporting Akron/Family. We posted that recording along with our favorable impression of Steve Marion’s touring band. By the final night of the tour, the bands had worked their way back to NYC and Bowery Ballroom. On this final night, Steve’s set was stretched out and the music seemed more relaxed and comfortable in the band setting. The players took their time developing each song and the result was a more rewarding experience than even their impressive Knit set from several weeks earlier. As Delicate Steve continues to grow and impress, their credentials have blossomed. The band will be playing many dates during the Summer, including a Northside Festival show and a night at Celebrate Brooklyn.

I recorded this set with the four microphone rig from the balcony rail and the sound quality is excellent. This is an improvement over the Knitting Factory recording from February. Enjoy!
