A sunny spring afternoon in North Carolina, with a lightweight breeze within the air, viewers members in uncramped splay on the bottom, Moist Tuna onstage as a brand new lineup, right here to have fun the twenty first anniversary of a label whose longevity and success each may as soon as have felt unbelievable, however now appear inevitable. All of this smack in the course of the plush arboreal campus of an elite American college, one equally unbelievable as the situation of a bizarre daytime live performance and birthplace of mentioned label. Like the primary tune says, a lot vibe on this planet. A lot proper right here.
Held on the out of doors grounds of the Karsh Alumni Middle at Duke College, Moist Tuna’s set kicked off the third and ultimate day of Three Lobed Recordings‘ twenty first anniversary celebration, one in all many issues postponed by the pandemic. Tuna’s third full-length, Warping All By Your self, was launched lately by Three Lobed, and is the band’s first that isn’t a collab between Matt “MV” Valentine and Pat “PG Six” Gubler. So, for its expanded embrace of funk, we have now solely Valentine himself to thank — and at present’s reside lineup together with MV&EE collaborator and companion Erika “EE” Elder and Jim Bliss for bringing that vibe to the reside viewers this afternoon.
This set started within the mellow embrace of “So A lot Vibe Within the World” and ended with the straight up boogie of “Candy Chump Change,” which is likely to be essentially the most “approachable” Tuna jam but. In between, don’t sleep on the band’s tackle Peter Laughner’s “Baudelaire,” the brand new album’s centerpiece, “Uncooked Meals” (this being nearer to model 1 of the two variations provided) and “Cowpath 40” which units the stage for the segue into “Candy Chump Change.” At the present time couldn’t have opened extra easily or in any manner that felt extra proper. It was good to be right here, on this welcoming area, again within the zone.
I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from longtime space sound engineer Wayne, along with Schoeps MK4V mics. MV’s outbound combine to the board did a lot of the work right here; just like the day itself, it’s proper on.
