Listen! The Field – Cupid’s Head (stream entire album)
The Field is a favourite here at PHM. The Swedish electronic music maker’s last album was one of our favourites in 2011. The label Kompakt decided to not make fans like me suffer another week and have put Cupid’s Head up on SoundCloud a week ahead of the new album’s release.
Axel Willner (aka The Field) excels at making highly repetitive beats sound fresh after minutes on end, by slowly evolving them subtly, so that you’re listening to an entirely different beat 5 minutes later and you didn’t even actively notice the evolution of the sounds. It’s dancey, it’s electronic, it’s atmospheric, it’s The Field. Check it out below.
