It’s hard to pass up a Field Music track, even with all the great tunes that made their way into the world yesterday. The vocal performance alone looks back to classic club hits, soaring high above the mix. Still, bubbling just beneath is a rad little bass groove that seems ever-present with the band’s work. I think the one thing that sticks out the most for me is that the song seems less-frantic than some of their previous efforts, just fulfilling the promise of great pop music. Can’t wait until their new record, Commontime, comes out on February 5th via Memphis Industries.
NYC band Longwave are celebrating their final show of the year at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday by giving away a free song each day this week. Yesterdays new and previously unreleased song was called “Disappointed” and it’s been getting heavy rotation in the ol itunes. Be sure to check the band’s website each day this week for more previously unreleased and new tracks.[audio: http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/disappointed.mp3]
