Complete audio recording (FLACs in zipfile)
First out of three times last December I was to check out the stylings of the MALLARD. I got to know their set really well, standouts are 'I Listen To Lyrics Last' which has made it to the blogosphere, the quite ducky Candy For Brains, and the Intelligence cover at the end, which hopefully pleased Lars Finberg, who was playing with Thee Oh Sees later on.
The soundcheck at the start took quite a while, but the sum result was worth it. I was also at this show but decided for whatever reason not to record.
The Mallard will be playing along with Thee Oh Sees in early March 6th at the Independent in SF. Don't miss it!
As a bonus, you can check out our recording of followup act Bronze's set. Any help ID'ing the tracks most appreciated, as more than half the set seems to be new songs.
