    Zoo Animal - Live in Concert

    2012-06-09 Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetary Minneapolis,MN

    You’ll notice Holly Newsom referencing the heat in-between songs…it was a hot day in June, and a great concert with Low & Zoo Animal.  Featuring a lot of material from their most recent EP Departure, which is fantastic - pick it up at their Bandcamp site. Thanks to Zoo Animal for permission to post!

    Spiritualized - Live in Concert

    2012-05-02 First Avenue Minneapolis,MN

    A driving 2-hour set from Jason Spaceman and crew. I was pleasantly surprised by how focused Spiritualized were live (this was my first time seeing them). Good fun. The Current was recording for broadcast that night as well, if anyone has access to the whole show recording, give me a shout.

    Caveman - Live in Concert

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 96khz 24bit Wav - encoded to 320 kbps MP3

    Been loving Caveman since they opened for The War on Drugs last August. Their debut (spotify link below) is essential listening - melodic and textually diverse pop / rock.

    Prissy Clerks - Live in Concert (opening for Caveman) 
    2012-04-14
    7th Street Entry  Minneapolis, MN

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 96khz 24bit Wav - encoded to 320 kbps MP3

    Ahh, finally caught Prissy Clerks live.  I am a huge Total Babe fan (Clara Salyer’s last band), and the Clerks have a similar sound - jangly guitar pop with great melodies.  Can’t wait for the official first album, but I picked up a home recorded cassette (!) at the show.

    Keep your ears peeled, a certain music blogger gets a shout-out from the stage half-way through the show :)

    Retribution Gospel Choir - Live in Concert (opening for Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapels) 
    2012-04-07 
    First Avenue Minneapolis, MN

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 96khz 24bit Wav - encoded to 320 kbps MP3

    A face melting performance from RGC. Rumor is that they will be playing a residency at the Turf Club in June (with Dead Man Winter to boot), so make sure to catch these guys live at some point this summer. It’s too fun to see Alan go nuts on geetar.

    Be sure to download their new Revolution EP at retributiongospelchoir.com (it’s free and excellent)

    Fantastic performance from the chamber-folk group Lost in the Trees. Interesting instrumentation here, featuring acoustic guitar & vocals, plus violin, tuba, and french horn.

    Thanks to Lost in the Trees & their management for arranging this recording!

    Sharon Van Etten - Live in Concert

    2012-02-18 

    Cedar Cultural Center Minneapolis, MN 

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 96khz 24bit Wav -> 320 kbps MP3 

    LOVE the new Sharon Van Etten record, and her previous Epic was a big favorite from last year. I was wondering if her live show would hold up compared to the albums - my fav aspect of Tramp is Sharon’s voice harmonizing with herself.  Luckily, her backing band features a great female backup vocalist / keyboard player. Great show with goofy banter in between.

    Thanks to Sharon for the quick chat after the show & permission to post this recording :)
