|One might think that Andy Bodor, who runs Cake Shop and books 4 bands a night, might become blasé about the music. Occasionally so, perhaps, but he also periodically gets totally knocked out by some of the performers. This happened a year or so ago with Standing Nudes, a blues-rock outfit out of Brooklyn. He'd extol their virtues to anyone who'd listen. Eventually they've got around to putting out a record, and he gave them a 3 week Friday night headlining residency to celebrate, of which this was the final night. Just recently a new group has bowled him over - a trio visiting from Denmark - Kirsten Kjester. Thus they were duly installed in an opening spot on this prestigious night. They put on a show that was hard to follow. Gentle indie pop grew intense and menacing then, via sonic freak out, ended with a party. I've picked two songs: 'River' from just over halfway, and the finale 'Kronprinz Frederik The Boat' where the audience partake as a cymbal stand. Given the job of following this was Lissy Trullie, a friend of the Nudes, with her band The Fibs. A lanky gamine tomboy with a casual ramshackle style that echo'd early 60's pop, and an engaging personality, Lissy pulled it off without a problem. I've picked the plaintive 'Billy' and the finale, a cover of Amy W.'s 'Rehab'. Then came the main feature. Standing Nudes are a five-piece that, to me at least, echoes the sound of the golden age of west-coast blues-rock. Sometimes spacey, ebbing and flowing with emotion, the music is dynamic, and played with precision and virtuosity. The songs are personal. I've picked the opener - See You Cry - when the sound was still settling down, and then 'Ghost Story' which is the title track of the band's new record.|
