Live Concert Photography: BETS, Gingerlys and Fieldings at Baby’s All Right 2/14/17
Now, if you’ve been frequenting this site over the past 3 or 4 months, you’ve likely come across a couple of posts on the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter BETS, who quickly came to attention with the release of her critically applauded debut effort Days Hours Night. Building upon the buzz that the up-and-coming Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter received, BETS along with her producer and cowriter had initially planned to write and record an album of new, original material when the collaborative duo discovered that they shared a mutual love of Violent Femmes‘ 1983 self-titled, breakthrough debut. And reportedly, within a few minutes, BETS along with her producer decided that the album of original material should be put on hold for a bit, to allow them some time to write and record a Violent Femmes tribute album, in which she re-imagined and reworked the original material into haunting and dreamy shoegaze.
Last month, BETS headlined a night of dream pop and shoegazer-leaning indie rock at Williamsburg’s Baby’s All Right with two local acts, the New York area-based quintet Gingerlys and Fieldings, the recording project of the Sydney, Australia-born New York-based singer/songwriter and producer known as Lu. Check out photos from the show below.
Comprised of Jackie M. (vocals, keyboards), Matthew R. (rhythm guitar), Colin O (lead guitar, vocals), Kevin D. (bass), and Brian A. (drums), the New York area-based quintet Gingerlys specialize in a twee, dream pop with fuzzy guitars, shimmering synths and plaintive melodies as you’ll hear on singles like “Summer Cramps” and “Better Hearts.”
Initially formed as the solo recording project of Lu, a Sydney, Australia-born New York-based singer/songwriter, Fieldings is a dream pop/indie rock quartet, whose sound focuses around small movements and repeating patterns, as a way of discovering when the mundane becomes sublime. And with the release of Wild Release, Vol. 1 and Wild Release, Vol. 2, the project has begun to receive attention across the blogosphere — in particular from the folks at The Deli Magazine.
