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.
