Watch the quartet perform “Don’t You Cry”, “Mighty Apple Tree” and “Mary And Martha”.
The Neighbor played a session for Paste Magazine’s Paste Studio on the go series on Sundays at the Beach Road Weekend festival. The quartet used a simplified setup to perform three core originals from their live repertoire.
The Boston-based jam quartet – consisting of a keyboardist Richard Jamesguitarist Lyle Brewerdrummer Dean Johnson and bassist Dan Kelly – opened with the blues “Don’t You Cry”. James then discussed Into The Sun, a three-day event presented by Neighbor and JamBase taking place at Soundcheck Studios in Pembroke, Massachusetts, from September 9-11. Ricky also spoke about the band’s run in support of Twiddle this fall.
The second song in Neighbor’s set was “Mighty Apple Tree”. The tune, like the three performed for Paste, dates back to the quartet’s formative period of playing a weekly residency at Somerville’s now-closed venue, Thunder Road. James then talked about Martha’s Vineyard and how the band tailors setlists to the setting of each space. Finally, Neighbor offered the contemplative “Mary And Martha” to close the session.
