The Henry Millers @ Webster

The Henry Millers opened for Hey Ocean! last night at the Studio at Webster Hall…and I’m so happy I saw their set.

The Henry Millers at Webster

The Henry Millers is led by John MacCallum and Katie Schecter, both on guitars and vocals. The band performed songs from their album Daisies, like the second song they played, “Diamonds,” as well as “Predator.”

I loved that they played “Treehouse” too — the female vocals that come in at the end take the song to another level.

I wish the album/studio versions sounded as full, powerful, and clear as the live versions.

The band finished their set strong with “Mr. Flash Gordon.” The echo in the choruses of “Gordon, Mr. Flash Gordon” and the interplay between both vocals sounds amazing (it’s more muddled and harder to hear on the recorded version).

David Vertesi: Cardiography

David Vertesi (Hey Ocean!) released his debut solo album, Cardiography, last week. Although the album is now out in Canada, it won’t be out until early next year in America.

Here’s the tracklisting of the album’s 11 songs:

1. Mountainside

2. Gentlemen Say

3. All Night, All Night, All Night

4. Learn to Run

5. Cardiography

6. Broadcasting

7. Caroline! A Ghost!

8. Rossland

9. Soft Skin

10. Hearts Don’t Break, People Do

11. Epilogue

The best songs are “Caroline! A Ghost!,” “Mountainside,” and “Gentlemen Say.”

Although most of the songs on the album are on the slower side, songs like “Learn to Run” gain momentum and energy as drums build after the half way mark.

The last song of the album, “Epilogue,” cleverly ends with the opening notes of “Gentlemen Say.”

Listen to “Mountainside,” “Gentlemen Say,” and “All Night, All Night, All Night” on David’s MySpace.
