Grails played Knitting Factory w/ James Blackshaw (pics)

Grails

The eclectic sounds of Grails played Knitting Factory on a wet Easter night (last night, 4/24) with tour-mate James Blackshaw. Unfortunately, I missed all of Moonrises‘s set and at least half of James Blackshaw’s, though his twelve-string guitar’s resonant (in tone and emotion) and gorgeous compositions sounded amazing.

Grails played material from across their output to a mesmerized crowd. New tracks like “I Almost Grew My Hair” mixed with old songs like encore track “Reincarnation Blues.” The six-piece rotated instruments, with Emil Amos (who is also in Om) playing both drums and guitar, while the other band members weilded lap steel, keys, sampler, melodica, shaker, and more. Grails is supporting their current jaw-dropping effort Deep Politics (out now on Temporary Residence).

More pictures from last night’s show are below…
