Highline Ballroom recording available

As advertised earlier on, the fantastic Mr. Dan Lynch managed to record the band in New York again. The quality of the recording is beyond reproach, and it really makes you feel like you were there that night.
The band sounds quite amazingly tight considering they didn't get that much time to rehearse, and, more importantly, decided not to bother with computers and pre-recorded tracks this time. As a result, the setlist is quite different from the previous shows, and boasts 3 tracks from Satanic Panic In The Attic, including Spike The Senses, which we hadn't heard in about 3 years, and "rare" tracks like Everyday Feels Like Sunday and Du Og Meg (from the Sunlandic Twins bonus EP and Icons, Abstract Thee respectively). Unfortunately no new song was road tested - Teenage Unicorn Fisting has been around for quite a while now. Solange once again joined the band on stage for the final cover - The Jacksons 5's I Want You Back.
Hats off to the band for pulling it off, and especially Jamey, who played two sets that night, and mades the idea of a drum machine laughable in retrospect.

You can download the show there - Thanks to our friends at
