For those of you who don't know Ariel Pink... well. Hard to categorize - you'll find hints of Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Herman's Hermits, Suicide, Beck, Legendary Pink Dots...
Best match: The 'Godfather of Lo-Fi' R. Stevie Moore.
So instead of psychedelic (again! Poor Space Bandit) you might as well file it under: LoFi, New Wave, Progressive, Indie, Electronic...
The show was very short, but after one hour+ of distortion and delay, my ears were ringing anyway. The recording sounds much better than expected.

recording position: ~3 m from stage center.
lineage: zoom h1 -> wav 48/24 -> micro sd card -> PC -> master (wavelab) -> wav 44/16 - > flac
mastering: +bass, +mids. Compression. Usually I have to lower bass and push treble. I also avoid compression. But his studio records still sound more bassy and compressed than my master, so what.
