The roll-out of quality shows continues today, as we are proud to release a duo of prolific concerts from two of the most exciting touring bands around. Recorded October 18th, 2007 at the
CMJ Showcase, we’re proud to premier these electric performances from Brooklyn’s
, and England’s British Sea Power
In this performance at the Bowery Ballroom, British Sea Power offer an exhilarating dose of anthemic, freak out material. Except, here, the band stays cool, and stands tall throughout.
This is material British Sea Power truly reign supreme over. No gimmicks needed, this is as confident a performance as any you'll find in our catalogue. - David Pitz
Propped upon pile driving drums, a brooding bottom end, and flickering guitar lines that elegantly dance to Billy McCarthy’s gutsy yelp, the intensity of this Pela performance - a hometown
CMJ affair at the Bowery Ballroom that was the band’s last of a generous 2007 - will absorb viewers right through the screen. This is music of a more meaningful variety…of course,
when you pull from the very best of American rock bands, both past and present, this is bound to happen.
