Katharsis Feb. 8 '10

An excellent showfill from Craig Soby. Download mp3 or ogg format

I took the night off to go see Do Make Say Think, a long-time favourite. Honestly, their latest album didn't do much for me. Live they seem to be just as solid as ever but not really breaking new ground musically. Their live show has become a bit rote which is kind of sad. The exceptions were their opening guises as Charles Spearan's Happiness Project (Charles Spearan's novel "science project" - music not only inspired by interviews of his neighbours but that actually mimics the cadence and inflection of the interview voice recordings) and Years, Ohad Benchetrit's solo project. Benchetrit started off solo acoustic, with some great Fayhey-esq instrumental folk from his album of last year (one of my favourites of the year) but eventually brought his DMST-bandmates out to provide the highlight set of the evening for me.

As always Craig did a fantastic showfill in my absence.

The links to the archived show recordings should be good for up to a month from the show date. If the links expire just let me know via comment and I'll re-up.
