Simian Mobile Disco

This Sunday night Simian Mobile Disco bring the tour for their recently released new album Whorl to New York for an intimate showing at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

As far as electronic shows go, you don’t want to miss Simian Mobile Disco right now. After all, Whorl was recorded from a live performance at Pioneertown using two modular snyths, two sequencers, and a mixer. So getting to see them live, just like it was created, will be a special experience. The show will be my first time catching the group live. I’m very excited, to say the least.

Tickets are still on sale for now, but don’t wait until the last minute for this. And stay tuned, we may have a surprise coming for some of you.

13_Bear In Heaven

Brooklyn-based trio Bear In Heaven are currently on tour for new album Time Is Over One Day Old, which came out in August. We saw them play a record release show the day of release over at Rough Trade and they dazzled me all the way through.

They’re stopping back in New York tomorrow to play Bowery Ballroom, and then MHOW on Wednesday night. Tickets for both shows are still on sale, and come highly recommended

On Friday night Chromeo played to a sold out Central Park crowd in support of their recently released White Women along with Big Freedia, who opened up for them.

As usual, the duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg brought their funky-fresh dance expertise to the Central Park crowd and dazzled them into the wee hours of the night (well as far as Central Park’s curfew allows). Find photos of them and Big Freedia below, all of which were taken by our very own Dana Pacifico.

This weekend I made the drive upstate to Hudson, New York for the 3rd edition of Basilica Soundscape. The festival takes place in Basilica Hudson, the an old train-wheel factory that was converted to a performance space. It’s a small-scale festival limited in scale and attendance, with finely curated booking fit to the bill of readers of Pitchfork, who help put on the fest.

There’s a real calm and relaxed vibe to Basilica that you’d be hard pressed to compare to any other festival, especially in New York. They have good food, good beer (Lagunitas Brewing Company), and don’t oversell tickets, making it one of the more comfortable festival experiences I’ve had.

1_Swans_Basilica Soundscape 2014

One by one the members of Swans came out to their drawn out opening number. First it was percussionist Thor Harris who began his work on his gong, then out came drummer Phil Puleo who added his own strikes. The percussion only groove was broken up by lap steel guitar player Christoph Hahn who joined them for a few minutes until the rest of the group, led by Swans head honcho Michael Gira, joined them. This opening number went on for nearly 20-minutes, giving you a clear understanding of what exactly you can expect from a Swans live show.

Truthfully, I’m not much of a metal guy. If you frequent this blog, that won’t come as a surprise. But I’ve heard nothing but glowing praise from mostly everyone I could think of about black metal band Deafheaven, even from the sort of people who don’t normally have anything to say about metal at all. Last night I got to see the perform at Basilica Soundscape and see what all the talk was about.

1_White Lung_Basilica Soundscape 2014

White Lung’s recently released Deep Fantasy is a ferocious beast of a record that hits hard in all the right ways. It’s one of the best punk albums you’ll find all year.

I saw them play most of it this summer when they played Mercury Lounge. It was a good show, but it got one-upped by their performance last night at Basilica. The empty warehouse space that Basilica Hudson provided was a scarily fitting atmosphere, and the fact that Deafheaven and Swans were up next gave the stage that extra special feeling, and it bleed through not only from the crowd but from the frantic performance of the band.

It was a delightfully heavy show with an unstoppable energy that had me head-banging gleefully.

Drenched in complete darkness (as you can see), Majical Cloudz, the Canadian duo of singer-songwriter Devon Welsh and producer Matthew Otto, captivated an audience with a performance as personal as you’ll find.

Welsh’s singing isn’t perfect, but it has a raw validity to it that helps convey every word that he offers. While singing, he scans the room, walking slowly from side to side, making sure his point is being communicated. He would even stomp up and down at times while performing, even if it had nothing to do with the beat or tempo of the song, just because its what helped him express that given lyric. He lead the show, but you couldn’t forget the steady electronic music that Otto provided, giving us the music template and background that supported it all.

It was a powerful performance with no gimmicks, just pure music and emotion. It was refreshing, to say the least.

Guardian Alien at Basilica Soundscape 2014

By Will Oliver, September 14th 2014 Other

1_Guardian Alien_Basilica Soundscape

Guardian Alien is the project of Brooklyn-based drummer Greg Fox, as well as vocalist Alex Drewchin. Their set at Basilica Soundscape yesterday served as my introduction to their work. All I can say is damn, Fox is one hell of a drummer.

Their songs are of the experimental/avant-garde world, with Drewchin’s vocals and electronic work built around the unstoppable steady force that is Fox behind the kit. Their songs took a while to get going, but once they hit that groove, it was hard not to be taken over by what they were doing.

Fox is so good behind his kit that Basilica brought him back out to play solo from an elevated area above the stage to warm the crowd before Swans took the stage. Now that’s saying something.
