I'd for sure go if they were at the HOB. They're at Insert Coins and it's like a video arcade type place. it's like Chuck e Cheese for people in their 20's. Someone could slip me a roofie or I could at least hope. I'll have to get the skinny on the venue. Never been there. I like to sit and listen, but so much stand in a crowd for a couple hours to see anyone. This would be a fun band to check out though.

New track!

 

 

no longer on Vevo, Phillip. I can only assume this is not your fault.

:cop::D

 

It was actually the studio version of this track.

I stumbled upon them on Youtube about a year ago and have been a big fan ever since. Great keyboard player!

 

I'm in NYC for three months right now and have tickets for their show at Gramercy Theatre in May. Can't wait. Will post a report after the concert :)

I had tickets to their concert last night at Gramercy Theatre in NYC.

 

My first comment: Great show! You really have to admire the level of musicianship that these guys have.

 

They played a lot of new material from their newest album 'Choose your weapon'. It's really groovy with a lot of polyrhythm and breaks - as a musician I find it really interesting to listen to, but my girlfriend - a self proclaimed Taylor Swift lover - found it a bit to "weird" at times. However, she really liked some of their older tracks like 'Nakamurra', they are a bit easier to follow rhythmically.

 

I would have to say that I like the older and more 'simple' stuff more as well. The newer songs with eight meter changes and breaks every fifth bar can be a bit to much after a while - a bit ostentatious and showy.

 

But all in all I really liked the concert! :)

 

The keyboardist, Simon Mavin, was playing a Korg Kronos and a Korg MS2000. On the second tier he had some kind of Roland keyboard, perhaps just a controller. I couldn't make out what model. On top of the Kronos he had what looked like a Strymon Big Sky reverb pedal that he ran the MS2000 through. It sounded really great but had a tendency to get lost in the mix when the reverb was dialed up.

 

Lead singer Nai Palm was playing a Korg SV1 for one or two songs as well. She showed of some really impressive LH bass skills in one of their first songs. She was playing a pretty complex bass line while comping with the RH and singing - in meters that shifted between 11/4 and 10/4 as far as I could tell/feel. Very impressive - especially since I didn't know that she could play keys.

 

If you have a chance to see them live, I would definitely recommend it. Money well spent (except for the 9 dollar beers).

Oh, and I have to give it up for the drummer. He has great chops and played some really interesting percussion-type rhythms with his right hand while keeping the beat going with the bass drum, snare and hihat.
