Posted: April 14, 2023 in MUSIC

Our ‘Live at the Murmrr Theatre’ release will be available on eco vinyl 22nd April for Record Store Day at participating stores as part of @recordstoredayuk. this was a special show for us and we are psyched to have this record out there existing in the real world

A Live recording of the one-night-only DIIV Unplugged show at Murmrr Theatre in Brooklyn on August 17th, 2017. Mixed by Jarvis Taveniere, mastered by Alex DeTurk. Includes unique arrangements of songs off DIIV’s first two albums (“Oshin” and “Is The Is Are“), as well as covers of My Bloody Valentine and Alex G

DIIV—Zachary Cole Smith [lead vocals, guitar], Andrew Bailey [guitar], Colin Caulfield [vocals, bass], and Ben Newman [drums]—craft the soundtrack to personal resurrection under the heavy weight of metallic catharsis upheld by robust guitars and vocal tension that almost snaps, but never quite…

The wash of sound that DIIV music uses on studio albums has been toned back ever so slightly in this recording (think brushed drums, piano, electric guitar and bass with acoustic accompaniment) to reveal the gentle beauty behind each song.. yet what a feast for my ears. Thank you for this in the season of comfort, warmth, and thanks. The DIIV songs are so gorgeous, but OH MY just hear their take on My Bloody Valentine’s wash of sound
