Yesterday And Today (ANTI-/Kompakt)
The Field’s sound is haunting and atmospheric, driven by a sequenced mechanical pulse.
The songs progress through the subtle introduction of new elements, which gives the album a minimal techno feel even when non-electronic instruments are in the mix. Vibraphones, guitars, glockenspiels, pianos and drum machines come together to form an idiosyncratic sound that also allows Yesterday And Today to wander between the realms of ambient electronica and lo-fi rock.
From the long-building synth hum of the fantastic introductory track I Have The Moon, You Have The Internet to the single instance of vocals on Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime, the Field inject soul at just the right moments. By the end of the beautifully arranged final track, Sequenced, you’ll want to revisit Yesterday And Today immediately. A stellar offering.
