Live Footage- Doyers LP
Some music is so ephemeral that once you try and capture it in the studio, it’s magic completely disappears. It becomes the equivalent of a low-rez, blurry flash photo taken of what you had perceived as a beautiful, mysterious woman dancing in low light- POOF! Gone! Few bands have what it takes to kneel to the Gods of improvisation and cut a record this way, but I knew Live Footage would be just the band to do it. For nearly 2 years Live Footage has been cultivating this improvisational sorcery before live audiences at their Apotheka residency. This two piece band creates such lush worlds of sounds. I believed we could capture these moody moments in such a way to keep their mystique in tact. I love this record so damn much. It’s best heard front to back as there are themes along this narrated voyage. Here’s the teaser video they produced to give you a little flavor of each cut on the record. Give the full album a listen and you won’t regret it.
