Everything Last Winter (Black Lab)

INDIE

Imagine, if you will, Fleetwood Mac getting together with My Bloody Valentine. Add some crystal meth, the melodies of angels and a poet’s heart. Fields’ sound ranges from exquisite skewed folk to powerhouse drone-rock mayhem, frequently in the same song. Starting with the piledriving bloody-minded romp of ‘Song for the Fields’ and ending with the painfully gorgeous dark folk of ‘Parasite’, this is an astonishingly accomplished and diverse debut, a record which echoes the punk-art-rock chaos of Deus, the riffing drive of QotSA and the off-kilter magic of Fence in a single package which is unique and properly thrilling.
