Recording: Zacht Automaat

Artist: Zacht Automaat

Songs: [four unknown songs]*

Recorded at Double Double Land, December 29, 2014.

Zacht Automaat - [tracks 7 + 8]

Zacht Automaat - [tracks 9 + 10]

If you figured that a late set on a Monday night would keep people away, think again. This season's semi-annual emergence of the mighty Zacht Automaat took place over two back-to-back nights in crammed quarters. The first was at DDL, a frequent stop for the band, and it was jammed in solid.

Still celebrating the consolidation of their double-vinyl compilation (which has now received a second pressing), 2014 was the first year in the band's existence without a new release — though the keen-eared might have heard a hint of what's to come if they paid attention to the between-sets background music at this gig. [Edit: the new album has now landed on bandcamp!] The two nights featured similar setlists, so instead of cherry picking something from each, I'm going to pass along here a pair of one-two punches from the first, which I managed to capture a little bit more cleanly. Stay tuned, keep refreshing the ZA bandcamp site, and remind yourself that summer is just around the corner.
