Fields – Everything Last Winter

How I haven’t yet posted a proper little spot about Fields is beyond me.  I really must apologize to everyone who reads this blog because I feel as if I’ve let you down.  Let you down hard.  Honestly, where has my head been?  I know I’ve been consumed with moving to a new city and starting a new job {from where I currently am blogging – don’t worry, it’s after hours}, but that in no way excuses how I let the past full year go by without mention this band.  I mean seriously.

Anyway, in 2007, yes ages ago now, Fields released the first studio full length entitled Everything Last Winter (amazon) (itunes).  I’ve had a promo copy kicking around my abode for at least nine months {mad props to the PR folks who send me schwag, I promise I listen to every album I get}, but it didn’t really hit me until I purchased a new car.  My car, at least during the past two weeks, has had only this album on constant rotation.  Every time I think about putting in a new album the next track kicks in and I just can’t stop my addiction.

On March 10th of 2007, over eighteen months ago, I wrote that Fields were the one band I had heard in ages that accurately lived up to the hype of “the next Arcade Fire.”  I still hold that sentiment to be true.  Honestly I feel ashamed these kids haven’t been given a more proper review here on TWF before today.  What I can tell you is that from the opening track to the end of the album every second of Everything Last Winter is worth listening to.  And, to be quite blunt, there are moments in almost every song that will take you completely by surprise.  For a good example take a trip through Skulls And Flesh And More; the last ninety seconds is brilliant.  Just brilliant.

One thought on “Fields – Everything Last Winter”

  1. I totally agree with that! “You brought this on yourself” is an amazing song… I remember listening a lot to this album when it came out, but I also remember being the only one knowing this band among my friends, it was slightly advertised in French CD stores but then went completely forgotten… I was googling “fields” to see if they had anything new coming up and then found them in “the world forgot”, this is sadly so true:(
    Anyway there seem to be a lot of bands I don’t know yet in this blog so I gotta go through it quickly

    PS: Favorite album of the moment is Elbow’s Seldom Seen Kid (previous records are great too)
