Its been a few years since Tonstartssbandht last appeared on NYCTaper. In March, Tonstartss will release a new album Sorcerer, their first on Mexican Summer. The band that consists of brothers Andy and Edwin White have played under this name for about a decade and have released somewhere in the range of 20 albums via various labels and Bandcamp, but not a proper “studio” album since 2011’s Now I Am Become. The band is also currently on their first extended tour in a while, as the brothers have spent time on other projects — mostly notably Andy White’s position as lead guitar in Mac DeMarco’s touring band.

In January, the TBT tour came to Brooklyn and sold out Sunnyvale on a Wednesday night. The brothers played an extended set that included all of the three long tracks from Sorcerer and a ton of older TBT tracks and covers all interspersed in their unique segue-style stream-of-consciousness show. The Whites are the sons of a long-time professional musician and have played together for their entire lives so there’s a definite telepathy going on every time they take the stage that allows their sets to freely weave from one musical idea to the next. This inventiveness and unpredictability is one of the most compelling aspects of Tonstartssbandht and is why we keep coming back for more. Tonstartss are currently in Europe but return to the US for shows in May, all dates [HERE].

I recorded this set with the Schoeps mounted in front of the stage and mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
