alright, i've had to time to soak it all in and I just wanted to give a quick little review. I love this lineup. Graveface-Seven Fields- Tobacco-Iffernaut. Not saying anything negative about the old lineup, but i think this setup just has a cleaner sound. I'm gonna jump around a bit on song reviews. The opener was a new song that I recognized from the Psychic Love Damage Demo Teaser, great tune with a unique sound, look forward to hearing it on the new album. Melt Me was next, one of my favorites, graveface and iffernaut hold it steady with the bass and drums. Just like all BMSR songs, it's a perfect blend of the synths and the rhythm section. fourth song into the show and graveface yells out "Sunburn" I got excited thinking it was sunburn face from the white fish tapes. I really love the early ambient type stuff from from the white fish tapes and autumn kaleidoscope, but unless they totally reworked sunburn face, this wasn't it. it was thunderous song and the crowd was feeling it. at about the 3 minute mark it seemed as though the song was over and they were winding it down, but the went right back into it, love that stuff. Jumping around a bit, Afternoon was great. Iron Lemonade might be the dark-nastiest song of all time, melted my face off my head. iffernaut kept hitting a symbol that sounded like a church bell giving it an even more of an eerie sound, if that's possible. friends and neon syrup were up next, two staples in the bmsr repertoire, very well done, neon being a great change of pace and gave us a chance to catch our breath. up next was a new song, don't know the name but it was nasty, high energy with a classic bmsr sound. up next was '256 colors' and one of the best versions i've heard of this tune. i enjoy all the different versions that are out there, but i really liked this one and it segued perfectly into drippy eye. Up next was Spiracle. another high energy tune that got the crowd rocking. next was caterpillar house and it nearly brought the house down, a staple for every bmsr show and it segued into forever heavy. forever heavy was the song that originally got me into bmsr's music and i credit it for introducing me to the band. this song is always welcome at any bmsr experience. great closer.
Encore: Sun Lips, i believe it was the bass player from the marshmallow ghosts that sat in on this tune and it gave graveface a chance to pound the keys. tobacco's motorlicker was next and it was thumping and finally, closing the show out was constellation dirtbike head, another choice tobacco tune.
the show was awesome. all of bmsr's songs are awesome, my only complaint would be that the songs are too short, i wish each one was ten minutes long, but i'm a jam-fan so I guess that's my opinion. i also wish they would do some stuff off of kaleidoscope, perhaps an ambient/acoustic first set then a electro second set. also i think it would be cool to hear some covers, it'd be interesting to hear bmsr's take on someone else tunes
also, tobacco looks like he should be batting clean up for a major league team, dude is ripped
