On July 17th 2015, experimental post-rockers Unconditional Arms performed two sets encompassing their thus far short, yet prolific run. Pulling from their catalog of various 7” singles, tapes, and the 12”LP that served as the impetus for the band, Unconditional Arms performed to an intimate audience at Santo Studios, in their hometown of Oakland, CA.
Weaving through their equally emotive but ultimately disparate releases, the band effortlessly recounts the last two years with eight songs over two sets. From the subtle, dreamy grooves of “Haunt", to the quiet, delicate whispers of “Conscious Whirr", and the noisy and absolutely crushing crescendos of “No Nerves", Live at Santo is Unconditional Arms at their best – live and unabridged.
Filmed and recorded by some of the best audio and video engineers in the Bay Area and LA, Live at Santo is both a live film, and album.
