The Disco Biscuits have shared a pro-shot video of “Spacebirdmatingcall”, filmed at the band’s October 29th show at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. This late-night performance came during Phish‘s Halloween run at MGM Grand Garden Arena just a few blocks away in Las Vegas, NV.
After starting the first set of night two at the Brooklyn Bowl with “Mindless Dribble”, from the band’s 2009 album They Missed The Perfume, the Biscuits segued to this extensive “Spacebirdmatingcall”. Marc Brownstein (bass) and drummer Allen Aucoin drove the jamtronica quartet headstrong into this cut, replete with a bouncy bassline and four-on-the-floor beat.
During the buildup, Aron Magner interjected otherworldly synth lines as Jon “Barber” Gutwillig locked in and kept the train rolling with distorted repeaters from his trusty hollowbody guitar. The four-piece explored this intergalactic territory for about six minutes before bright soundscapes from Magner’s synth brought the track to its first big peak. This apogee found a new floor as Barber brought forth the short vocal section, which included backing vocals from Magner and Brownstein.
Barber then navigated the group out of this section before passing the steering wheel off to Magner, who made a turn towards the weird and brought the ship to a newfound solar system. The second half of this expansive inquisition stayed in high gear thanks to the impressive interplay between Barber and Magner while Brownie and Aucoin held down the rhythm section. By the end of this 22-minute probe into deep space, tDB let the jam simmer before a short applause break led to “Pygmy Twylyte”.
