Live: Ryley Walker: Baby’s All Right, Brooklyn, NY (Updated)

Man, when he is hot… Ryley Walker is a mainstay on NYCTaper and he’s provided some great shows, but this one? Good Lord. He laughs. He stretches. He rips it up. He openly admits to using a capo on the 4th fret. I mean, come on. The long songs are great. Even at 11:36 The Halfwit in Me is over way too soon! JP

Great video of show in Berlin.

Ryley Walker has become something of a Renaissance man in 2018, with his highly-lauded album Deafman Glance, a full-album cover of an unreleased Dave Matthews Band LP, his endlessly entertaining Twitter account, and an ongoing series of Vice articles where Ryley’s just being Ryley.

Listen to some of his between song banter and it’s clear Walker loves music and knows how to engage an audience. Yet for all his extracurricular antics, the tunes are nothing if not sincere. 

Somewhat surprisingly given it’s high level of publicity, Walker and band are not touring Dave Matthews tunes, but instead continue touring this year’s excellent Deafman Glance—Walker’s best album yet. Especially great here is their rendition of “Spoil With the Rest” and a pair of tunes with trumpeter Jaimie Branch, “22 Days” and “Funny Thing She Said.”

I recorded this with a pair of MBHO cardioid mics on stage in stereo DIN configuration, combined with a soundboard feed courtesy of the Baby’s crew, Dan and Jesse. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy.
