Noah @ MHoW
Since we’re all praying for warmer weather, Ferraby Lionheart & Noah and the Whale, sans Laura Marling, brought some country fair charm to Music Hall of Williamsburg last night. Makes me wanna put on a summer dress and walk around barefoot in the park– which is sad, as my window says its starting to snow. Seriously though, more of this please. Two bands with fairly equal playing fields and that’s all. It screams show up on time, the opener is just as important, not to mention wonderfully whimsical.
After Ferraby’s melodies drifted up and away, the Noah boys, whose website looks straight off of Zissou’s Belafonte, took the stage. There were lots of new goods to be played, as they are in New York mixing their next record which just might be of the same name as the last song of the set, First Days of Spring. Let’s all thank Charlie Fink for sharing his broken heart charms, bassist “Urby Whale” for wearing those zebra print shoes, and to all the boys, although some may disagree, for not playing into one fan’s urge to be in a Saturn commercial.
I’ve been left with a serious longing for Spring, in more ways than one…
Noah, Whale-ing (tee hee)
