the field

are they any good? i've only heard "the little heart beats so fast", and it's kind of neat.

there's something addictive about it. maybe it's sexy with the woman moaning over it, i don't know.

anyone into them at all?

They were on my year end list, here were my comments from it:


On first listen I wasn't overly impressed, but this ended up growing to become my favorite electronic album of the year. This is a lyric-less album of beautiful soundscapes and beats incorporating glitch, trance, M83/Ulrich Schnauss-esque electronic shoegaze sound waves, ambience, house, etc. None of it is really all that unique or original in and off itself, it just all seems to come together beautifully. Great album to listen to while doing cardio.

Songs I recommend:
-Everday
-Over the Ice
-The Deal

Very nice disc... hypnotic, and beautiful. I listen to it alone when I drive... sort of takes you away.

having now heard a total of three songs, this is indeed fantastic. i'm quite happy to be listening to their music in my ears at the moment, guys.

too bad soulseek is so lame at the moment.

i don't suppose either of you have this album ready for my email inbox? *cough

caisenma@gmail.com

if you send it, great, if not, i'll hopefully get the rest eventually in time.

In related news, they appear to have just released an EP (that is over an hour long... four 15 minute tracks...)

Sound of Light
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/articl...nd-of-light-ep

I'm going to have to check this one out.

Oddly, when you look at it in iTunes it says it's a "partial album", as if it's not supposed to only be 4 tracks. Who knows.

Regardless, an hour of music for $4 is a great deal. Just listening to the EP's clips, you should definitely hear the actual album first though.

That's why I only sent it to one person.

Dying once is enough, for me.
