Stream New Field Mouse LP ‘Hold Still Life’

Field Mouse

Bring on the fuzz.

Field Mouse’s fantastic new album Hold Still Life is currently streaming over at Hype Machine. Applauding the loved sonic aspects of the ’90s, coupled with plenty of fuzz, reverb, and keen ears for melody, Hold Still Life is a wonderful experiment in sound.

From the ’80s inspired pop ballad of “Two Ships,” to the grunge emulated “Tomorrow Is Yesterday,” there is plenty to love on Hold Still Life. Within my first few listens of the work, I immediately noted the production. A lot of artists lately tend to prefer drowning out vocals for the sake of loud distorted guitars, but Field Mouse and their production team have found a useful ability in creating a balanced mix while keeping the fuzz and distortion when needed. Crisp melodies and vocals sew in and out of pedal infused effects, all to arrive at the perfect locus of production.

Remember to head here to stream the record, and be sure to pre-order if you like it, I know I will.

Hold Still Life drops July 22, 2014, via Topshelf Records.
