Today, Connecticut-bred quintet Goose released a surprise live album recorded over two nights at Chicago’s new massive indoor/outdoor venue, The Salt Shed. The LP, titled Live at The Salt Shed, was captured during their recently concluded spring tour on April 14 and 15 and showcases one of the many peaks of their transcendent musical explorations this year.
Live at The Salt Shed is an exclusive release available only on digital streaming platforms, which captures the energy that poured out of the Windy City’s new musical haven. Highlights from the first evening found on the album include an opening, “All I Need,” that features the hum of the filled venue, the twangy tune “The Whales” along with Dripfield fan favorite “Hungersite” and a lovely cover of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows.” Highlights from the second evening captured on the release include “Echo of a Rose” and a pristine “Slow Ready.” One of the most captivating aspects of the release is its final track titled “Chicago Soundcheck Jam,” which tracks in 30 minutes and captures the band’s live improvisational sound with pristine sound quality, giving listeners a true taste of their concert experience.
With their spring tour in the rearview, the band is currently on rest as the summer sun starts to rise with performances at some of the largest festivals in the nation, including Summer Camp, Electric Forest, Peach Music Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Ohana Fest, Borderland Music Festival and Suwannee Hulaween. The band will also head to Europe and the U.K. for the first time in November, with shows set for Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Copenhagen and more.
