!!! meet the Field

Fuckin a man, what a golden egg. I’m a huge fan of !!! (fuck the haters, they do solid stuff, especially live) and the Field seems poised to be the newly minted, prodigious flag-bearer of electronic who claimed the title of best critically-rated album of 2k7.

What do you get when you mix the two together? Well, Pitchfork tried it. And it seems as close as you can come to physically basking in warm, sunshiny electronified aural bliss that you can (and must) get up and dance to. This is the opus that so many of the new indie dance circuit aspire to produce when dragging electronica and disco into their music. Just luscious.

Nic Offer: Well I mean the scene has changed a lot. Different kinds of music have lived and died in that time. I always found it really interesting to watch. I was afraid I would be one of those old guys who doesn’t get new music anymore. But I can still enjoy new stuff that comes out.

AS: What died that you wish hadn’t? Read the rest…
