I Still Don't Mean What I Say

Sometimes once I stumble onto another Ct. band that could be worth seeing, it takes a while before anything actually happens. For instance, Closely Watched Trains have been on the list for over a year now, as well as (more recently) Get Haunted and a bunch of others. The Field Recordings are on the list now, too, ever since Bruce from Total Dick/Klonez UK brought them up back around June or so, and even though I still haven't caught one of their live shows yet (they're playing tonight at Cousin Larry's, but, you know, things...), I did manage to snare a copy of their second EP.

No fooling, "Statescapes" could be one of the two or three best songs released by a new-to-me Ct. band this year. Almost unabashedly post-punk, this song kicks it like it's not even there, and I can definitely see The Field Recordings presenting a formidable roar on stage, presuming they've got a decent drummer at least. I'm told that I bought the last remaining physical copy of the CD, but you can still listen to and/or download all of the songs here, plus there's an earlier EP out there that isn't all that bad, really, if you wanna go look for it.

Bruce said...

The Field Recordings came close to being the SECOND band I saw to literally "break a leg"...the first was VOID.

Wait, I think I've heard that Void story! I forget all the details, though... I'm trying to remember if it happened at a show in Boston, or if it made them have to cancel a show in Boston. Either way, I think I read about it in Suburban Voice.

Gee, I hope the guy from Total Dick/Klonez UK shows up and leaves a comment. That'll really help close the loop.

Are you being facetious with me, run-it? I can just leave you hanging, ya' know?

I was born without a sarcasm function. I couldn't be facetious if I tried.
