Wintercoats @ Bar Open (2010-07-29)

In comparison to the show I saw James play back in December this one dominates it. He has gotten much better live and the songs are of higher quality. He had a bit of trouble during Landscape The Heavens which caused him to have to restart the song a few times. I've edited this out to create a smoother sounding recording. That and it was my favorite of the set and I didn't want anyone who listened to this to think less of it.
I wish I could have stayed for the rest of the set. I hear he went on to play 2 or 3 more songs.


1. Cathedral
2. Unbearable Thinking
3. Landscape The Heavens
4. The Overture
5. A Sunday Smile (Beirut Cover)

Wintercoats @ The Builders Arms (2010-12-04)

Each time I see James play he gets better and better. Since the last show I saw he's added a piano and a backup dude who plays xylophone. This set has a few new songs on it and a couple off the EP. It was good to see Windmill since I hadn't yet. It sounds really good sped up. Landscape The Heavens doesn't sound anything like it did at Bar Open though...?
I took photo's for a cover but they were all too dark so I just stole a pic from his myspace and blurred the shit out of it and did some photoshop stuff to make it look nice.

1. Unbearable Thinking
2. Cathedral
3. Landscape The Heavens
4. Melodies
5. Forest of Lovers
6. Windmill

Length: 32:18
