Recorded shortly after his solo debut album Half-Light (and about 2 years following his departure from Vampire Weekend), Third Man had the distinct pleasure of hosting Rostam, as he graced the Third Man Blue Room stage in Nashville with a penetratingly thoughtful yet cheery set of whole-hearted indie electronica, filled out with bongos and a string section.
The live document is a very special one because it contains only songs from Half-Light, tour-tight and with clever nuances, nods and charm that can only be captured live. Not to say that this was anything but an outstanding live recording, complete with expertly commanded vocals and elegantly crafted strings. For those of us who weren't able to see live, a standout moment is the playful fourth track "Wood", which nourishes a lush, dynamic, beautiful little world into The Greater Consciousness. This live album was recorded direct-to-2" tape in the Blue Room.
