The Field @ The Earl
I first heard of The Field on NPR’s All Songs Considered and immediately started looking the band up online to hear more. It’s music is just up my alley – long, repetitive electronic tracks made up of beats and samples that glitch and scratch on and on. Axel Willner is the solo artist behind The Field so I was expecting to see him behind a laptop at the show. To my surprise he was accompanied by two other musicians and there wasn’t a laptop in sight! Every body in the room was swaying and bobbing to the minimal electronic beats he and this pals were cranking out – it was amazing.
