You didn't think I'd let you all down and not get a recording of this tour, did you?
Sorry it took me over a month to finally get it edited and posted.

Weird host at this one... I'm not convinced she actually lived there. It was a humid 90º day and there were 50+ people crammed into a tiny room and she didn't know how to work her A/C... and when I very politely asked if I could have a glass of water after the show (my gf was parched after being baked alive for the past 120 minutes)... she looked at me as though I had just asked her to wash my feet for me.
Q&A had the usual suspects including a guy saying "Sorry, I don't mean to make this about me..." and then proceeding to mention his own band/music about 3 times. D&Y spilled the beans about their shameful Ruby Tuesday addiction, and then the room proceeded to make them feel better by admitting that yes, indeed, their salad bar is the real deal.
Another somewhat muddy recording, thanks in large part to the room and the instrumentation. I'm not sure if Dave & Yuuki were intentionally going for this low-midrangey tone from everything, or if that's just simply a result of the amp and the synths, but it certainly made things sound a bit weird in this loft-y apartment. The kick/snare tones were particularly muddy in that room.
Dave broke my heart and skipped "Natural Disaster". I bugged him about it after the show and he said they intentionally haven't (didn't) play it at all on this tour because A) it's somewhat difficult to play and sing and B) he doesn't really like the whole song. He said the intro part is one of his favorite moments on the whole album, but he's never been happy with the rest of it. Shame. It's one of my fav melodies on the whole album.2015 Headphones Living Room Tour (Dave on vocals/keys/guitar with Yuuki Matthews on keys)
