1_Spoon_Central Park Summerstage

Last night Spoon commanded a crowd at Central Park Summerstage for their first offical headlining NYC show while on tour for new album They Want My Soul. Sure they played Governors Ball, and a secret NPR show at Le Poisson Rogue (as well as McKittrick) over the summer, but this was the first headlining show of their own for the general public. They made it count, bringing along a terrific pair of headliners in !!! and Operators.

The Gaslight Anthem - Portrait

On September 16 (at 9:30 p.m.) The Gaslight Anthem will bring their tour to Boston for a show at The House Of Blues. If you can’t make it out, or are no where near Boston, you can still check out the performance via Yahoo! Live.

Yahoo Screen (the saviors of my beloved Community), have teamed with Live Nation to create Yahoo! Live, who are broadcasting the largest amounts of live concert streams out there. They will stream shows live as they’re happening, so you can take it in no matter where you are. The show will loop for the following 24 hours, so you can watch watch it the next day if you missed it, or even watch it after you were actually there.

One of the concerts on my radar is The Gaslight Anthem, who I don’t know if I’ll be able to catch live this year, but knowing I can just stream it makes me feel a little bit better about that.

To find the stream, head here on the 16th. Then you got 24 hours after that to watch the stream.

1_Karen O_McKittrick Hotel

Last night the prolific Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O played a super intimate show at The McKittrick Hotel’s Manderley Bar. The show was the first in a three night run at the venue, with the fourth night coming at Le Poisson Rogue. The performances are celebrating the release of her debut album, Crush Songs, which came out this week. The record was actually recorded seven years ago after a bad breakup, but was never released. But here we are in 2014, and O has finally decided to share the album with the world via Julian Casablancas’ label, Cult Records.

Aphex Twin Listening Party for “Syro”

By Dana Pacifico, September 10th 2014 Aphex Twin New

aphexxx

When word got around that Richard D James, better known as Aphex Twin was releasing Syro, his follow up to Drukqs and first album in 13 years, the music world got giddy with excitement. There was an announcement August 29th that eight listening parties around the world, taking part over the course of five days, would get the rare opportunity to hear the highly anticipated album before anyone else.

This experience was one of the most interesting I’ve ever been a part of. Tickets were given out through a lottery and when something like this comes around, you do not want to pass it up. Because there is simply nothing to lose, but plenty to gain. Verboten in Brooklyn was the place to be at 6 p.m. on September 6, the night of the New York listening party. Security was strict with phones being turned off, and understandably so. In turn, it was nice seeing everyone put their phones away and forced to talk face to face with people you do not really know. It was surprising the amount of room there was. You knew they had the ability to fill it out to capacity floating around 750, but it was much more intimate sitting at about 100. Everyone was facing the stage even though all knew that no one was physically going to be playing there at that moment, but clearly we all thought it was necessary.

Finally it got underway, first song was Aphex Twins most recent single “mini pops 67 (source field mix)”. Apparently, this song isn’t new at all though, true fans have known this song for years through his live show. After that ended I got lost. But, in the best possible way to get lost. Since everything was new and disconnected from the outside world I allowed myself to just go on this journey Richard D James wanted me to hear before the rest of the world. It got deep; there were layers of beats. Certain points throughout are going to be exciting to hear again to discover new rhythms. It gets groovy and dare I say that you ever so briefly hear some Daft Punk-esque robotic dialect sprinkled in. The last song, “aisatsana”, I remember being particularly beautiful with the atmospheric piano, a stunning outro. The hour-long event seemed to go by rather quickly. I did not catch myself getting bored during any of the songs; everything was new and exciting and my ears wanted to hear whatever he was going to feed them. It’s a shame I only got to hear it once.

Syro is jam-packed with all the key elements that make-up a stand out electronic album. Those hard hitting acid beats, ethereal classical notes, funk that could get anyone dancing. It is a composition of exquisitely laced together rhythms.

Syro, is out via Warp Records September 22, 2014. You can preorder it here.

1_Banks_Rough Trade

Yesterday hotly tipped L.A.-based recording artist Banks released her debut album Goddess via Harvest Records. To celebrate the occasion, and reward fans who purchased the album, she played a short but sweet intimate set at Rough Trade NYC. The performance was one of the venues “instore” performances that rewards fans with the performance as well as a meet and greet with the artist, who will sign their album.

1_DFA1979_Rough Trade

Death From Above 1979 are officially back. Today the beloved duo of Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler released their new album The Physical World, a full (and long) decade after their only other album, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine .

To celebrate the release of the record, the band played a very intimate set last night at the tiny Rough Trade NYC. It was their first show in New York in three years, with the last being at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2011. They were originally supposed to play at Governors Ball last year but had to cancel in order to finish recording.

So people have been waiting at least a year, if not much, much, more to see these guys play. Now a select lucky few got their chance to do so, and at one of the tiniest spaces you could imagine seeing a band like DFA1979.

1_The National_Boston Calling 2014

This past weekend, I attended the fall version of Boston Calling, making it my first visit to the new but established Boston music festival. It was actually my first in Boston since I was a little kid, and boy, what a great weekend it was.

I have nothing but positive things to say about the festival, which was run to perfection. With two stages practically a stones throw away from one another, you had a pretty intimate fest with the ambition of one much larger. Even with rain and thunder causing an evacuation and hour long delays on Saturday night (which cancelled out sets from Girl Talk and Volcano Choir), the festival handled it and courteous and professionally as one could.

I saw stunning sets from The National, Lorde, Future Islands, Spoon, Nas + The Roots, The Replacements, The War On Drugs and Neutral Milk Hotel, making it a wonderful wrap of my summer festival season.

Boston Calling is just done right. I can only see it growing bigger and bigger over the years, which makes me very excited for the future.

Below I’ve wrapped up my coverage with a list of all the sets that I saw, as well as a photo gallery of my favorite shots taken from the weekend.

1_Nas and The Roots_Boston Calling 2014

In terms of Festival closers, no one could complain with Nas + The Roots wrapping up Boston Calling 2014. Going into their set, I was curious as to how the two would go about sharing the stage together at once. It was an exciting question, and it turned out to go down a little differently than I originally anticipated.
