Listen to Amanda X’s set at the NYCTaper CMJ Cake Shop show
Our friends at NYCTaper recently threw a party at the CMJ music conference in New York City. Their unofficial showcase was at the Cake Shop and featured one of Philly’s best bands, Amanda X. This year saw the release of Amanda X’s Amnesia on Siltbreeze Records. The record was recorded by Jeff Zeigler at his studio Uniform Recordings and is a confident rock and roll record from start to finish.
The punk rock trio – featuring guitarist/vocalist Cat Park, bassist Kat Bean, and drummer Tiff Yoon – formed in 2012. The band has received very positive support from the music blogosphere, and Parquet Courts were early fans of their music. (The trio recently opened for Parquet Courts in Philly at PhilaMOCA and were out on tour with them). Your next chances to see Amanda X in concert are on November 22nd at Everybody Hits, December 5th at Girard Hall, and they’ll be at Boot & Saddle on December 27th opening for Creepoid.
Below, listen to “Parsnips” by Amanda X. You can download the band’s entire set from the Cake Shop via NYCTaper here.
