What's This?

The Brooklyn based bar Muchmore’s very well may be the most delightfully shitty venue to see music in this or any other borough. The space is incredibly small, but as a positive consequence it lends a cozy, uncommon intimacy to the shows booked there. On Friday night, Crater and the Catalyst, the newly formed Eponymous, and The Breathing Effect all played super vibey sets to a modestly sized audience. I only managed to catch the last number by Crater and the Catalyst, but the sheer amount of freewheeling trumpet and saxophone hysterics on that last track convinced me of the group’s talents. The proggy, math-rock-type trio Eponymous, who played their fourth show ever on Friday, delivered a brief but utterly bewildering set of wily, unconventional guitar maneuverings, enough to daze and disorient the most passive of listeners. Brooklyn’s experimental faux-jazz foursome The Breathing Effect headlined the night with an incredible set of heady, groove-centric songs. It was nearly impossible not to shuffle and swerve along to their body-possessing, primarily instrumental compositions. Check out a video of The Breathing Effect performing an unreleased track at Muchmore’s below.
