Recording: No Angels Dancing

Artist: No Angels Dancing

Songs: [two excerpts]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), August 2, 2015.

No Angels Dancing - [set 1 excerpt]

No Angels Dancing - [set 2 excerpt]

Another No Angels Dancing duo, this time from Stephen Parkinson (guitar) and D. Alex Meeks (percussion). While the latter has been spotted at some of these sessions with just the most modest of implements (sometimes just a snare and various noisemaking bricabrac), this time out he had a full kit, including a bonus second bass drum, set on its side. That left open many paths for exploration, from hi-hat stand squeaks to clockwork taps and beyond. This set was recorded close-in with some nice stereo separation between the two players, so plug in those headphones and enjoy.

[With Allison Cameron back in the fold and D. Alex Meeks heading out of town, No Angels Dancing will make its final stand ("for now") in its full-fledged trio format on Saturday, August 29th in the Tranzac's early timeslot. Not to be missed, obvs — but keep an ear to the ground for whisperings of new adventures to come.]
