Active Child - Live in Concert 2011-11-16 First Avenue Minneapolis, MN (opening for M83)
Not as attentive a crowd as the Entry show this summer (Link here for the Sept. show: http://bit.ly/rIsoDi )…still a great opportunity for Active Child to win over a completely packed house. ‘I’m in Your Church at Night’ slays me.
Pretty mind-blowing stuff here. Active Child occupies the same sonic landscape as the recent James Blake / Bon Iver collaboration, with falsetto (and sometimes processed) vocals over synth beats and delicate textures. Lead singer Pat Grossi is in a different league though, he is a singular vocalist, with more power and control than I have ever seen from any band in a rock club.
Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 44.1khz 16bit Wav
