Let’s Eat Grandma played Baby’s All Right (pics, video, setlist)
Let’s Eat Grandma have come a long way since the last time I saw them, in September of 2016, a few months after the release of their weird, wonderful debut album I, Gemini. They released a follow up, I’m All Ears, this June which they made with producers SOPHIE, The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan, and David Wrench to turn their oddball vision into something sinister, sleek, and sparkling. Their live show, which was once an exercise in playful instrument-switching and sonically reminiscent of CocoRosie, has also undergone a shift. They’ve been on tour with Odetta Hartman this month, and stopped in Brooklyn to headline Baby’s All Right on Wednesday (9/12). Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth each kept to their own keyboard for much of the set, occasionally picking up a guitar or saxophone, as they performed most of the songs off I’m All Ears. From hearing them it was clear that they’d graduated from the CocoRosie comparisons and come more fully into their own sound. And they haven’t given up their whimsical ways, either; on the extended jam of set closer “Donnie Darko,” Rosa and Jenny laid on the floor and danced around each other, with Jenny going briefly into the crowd. For an encore they went into full instrument-switching mode for “Deep Six Textbook” from their debut.
