Good Field Elevates Newest Album Surface Tension Into Easy Listening Vibes

5 Jun

Upon first listening, Good Field brings on the tone of acoustic sound in their newest album Surface Tension. A few tracks in the album and you will find these uniquely crafted songs in sound and lyrics. When you have talented people working on the album with you that are known in the industry Jim Eno from Spoon’s studio and James Petralli from White Denim, a high expectation is made and the final product speaks for itself. The bulk of the album spins a mixture of melodic reflecting and airy pop as well within the tracks. The voice of lead singer Paul Price aids in crafting a sound that can only be described as hypnotizing. When placing similarities on other similar artists, Deerhunter, Cold War Kids, and the Walkmen are a few that share the easygoing melodic pop that draws you in wanting to listen to more. Surface Tension will definitely be an album to add to the must listen list for 2018.

A Journey At Sea Reveals The Complexity of Human Condition Through Dark Corners

13 Jun

The track Goodnight from It’s Just Craig carries an undertone of grunge meets Americana goth. The lyrics “I’m sick of goodnight, from oceans away” paints a melancholic, but visual tone. When listening to It’s Just Craig, listeners can draw similarities between their sound and the sounds of Mother, the early sound of Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the softness of Stars. Although, one only gets a glimpse of the journey of the path of a man at sea through the track Goodnight, the album Dark Corners takes listeners on a story of transformation and life at sea of a captain. Further emphasizing on their signature sound, it is no surprise that their production team, citing specifically John Vanderslice have carved their way into the music industry producing Spoon, Deathcab for Cutie, and St. Vincent just to name a few. It’s Just Craig reveals several parts of the human condition, journey, and themes of self-realization in this latest release.
