Peel Perform Memory Loop for Live at Enmore
PEEL was the latest band to hit the Live at Enmore studios. They performed their debut single Memory Loop, an anthemic piece of shoegaze that’s packed with unforgettable hooks.
Despite emerging in a tough time for live music, PEEL has hit the ground running, already building a reputation for great live shows in Sydney. If their explosive Live at Enmore session is any indication, it’s not hard to see why.
Also apparent on the day was the fact that the members of PEEL are sonic connoisseurs. Pedalboards were overflowing with ambience and distortion, which would set the tone for the entire track.
Memory Loop was Mixed and Recorded by Owen Penglis and Radi Safi
Peel – Memory Loop
This twin-guitar assault was coupled with Steve Schouten’s (of Misty Lanes) synth rig, the centrepiece of which was the immortal KORG MS-20. Underneath it all, an irresistible drum and bass groove, the latter soaked in multiple layers of fuzz.
Here’s what frontman Nick Stillman had to say about Memory Loop:
“It’s a song about trying to forget the past but realising that it’s actually really hard to do.” Check out the performance below:
The Live at Enmore series is made possible with the help of our tech partner Sennhesier. Here’s a list of the microphones that were used to capture this incredible performance:
The Sennheiser MD 441-U is the studio’s go-to mic for a live vocal performance, crisp detail for a dynamic, with excellent spill rejection:
The Sennheiser MD-421 is the classic choice for toms. It can reproduce a clear tone from this drum with inherently drastic transients.
Our go-to for guitar cabs is the Sennheiser e 906. It’s a rugged little beast that has a very convenient side-address configuration.
The Sennheiser e 902 was used to capture the top-end detail from inside the kick-drum, perfect for an uptempo rock song.
A detailed and versatile small-diaphragm condenser, the Sennheiser MKH 40-P48 ideal for reproducing a wide and lively stereo image of the kit.
