Hour-long, very decent quality, full set (minus encore) Secret Chiefs 3 performance which is basically flawless and amazing and if you should watch it

Absolutely amazing fucking band.

 

Includes covers of Danse Macabre (I know!), Carpenter's Halloween theme, re-arrangements of classical indian music (etc!), pieces from SC3's soundtrack to an imaginary giallo film (which are pretty significantly re-arranged here if you're familiar with that particular SC3 album), lots of originals, and new stuff even die-hard fans like me haven't heard, and unfortunately some blown out bass during some moments which would be assrippingly brutal were it not for the blown-out bass, but again, this is pretty well recorded, despite the static camera angle you see some fine performances.

 

I spam this band a lot, mostly without anyone noticing, but it's only because I fucking love them. I know there are a couple other fans here. More people should love them, imo.

 

 

edit: SO GOOD I DIDN'T ADEQUATELY PROOFREAD THE THREAD TITLE

I've seen them twice and both times they were the best thing I've ever seen live. And this performance might be even better.

 

The lineup here appears to be

 

Trey Spruance: Guitar, Electric Saz

Timba Harris: Violin, Guitar

Matt Lebrofsky: Keys and some other stuff?

Toby Driver: mostly bass and also keys on Danse Macabre

Kenny Grohowski: drums

 

Although I'm not totally sure, with the limited camera angle.

 

From checking the web of mimicry site, this looks like the Nov 5, 2012 concert in CZ. Brand-fucking-new.

Before I sit down to watch this, I'd just like to say:

 

Thank you.

 

These guys are one of the best making music today and are on a totally different level from anyone else.

 

As for that blown-out bass, I can attest to the ridiculous amounts they're doling out during the show. It is tied with Amon Tobin for the most bass in my face that I have ever experienced during a show. I was right in front of the subs and every time the key player let that sampler rip it was like a box-fan blowing in my face. I would have been sweating much more than I did if it wasn't for the gusts blowing over me.

Here's a pretty good version of them doing 'Saptarshi' which is one of my current favorites.
