Album Review
Rasmus Rygaard
Reviewed 2011-11-01 
Looping organic minimal techno. The Field likes his loops. A lot. After From Here We Go Sublime and Yesterday and Today, the Swede is back with another album of soft samples heavily looped. As always, there is a certain melancholic twist to the samples, which - considering that no more than a few seconds of any track is sampled - still impresses me. Don’t expect a party album here. This is for laid back listening and a touch of heartbreak. Try this if you’re a fan of Apparat, Burial, Four Tet or Pantha Du Prince.
Try: 4, 3, 2

1) 8:37 Alternates between airy, slightly off-key guitars in the far distance, and a focused drum and bass line. It’s all about the contrast. Hypnotic.
2) 9:21 * Very Sublime-ish. Echoes, reverb and a punchy guitar/bass groove when we’re not flying through space. Cymbal action, too.
3) 7:32 * Soft and organic. Incomprehensible vocal sample. Slightly melancholic.
4) 10:53 * What can I say, “Arpeggiated Love”? Mourning vocals, minor key guitar loops. Beautiful, fragile, timid. Alternates between a strong drive and an introverted groove.
5) 10:30 Esoteric, spacey, loopy. Starts out fairly minimal, slowly adds buzzing fuzzy layers. Builds and builds.
6) 7:52 Super soft and pleasant. That might be a female “ooh” sample. Very moody, melancholic. Carried by a repetitive piano chord progression.
7) 9:08 Weird, polyrhythmic sample. Gradually blurs out, remains esoteric. No kicks, but slowly assembles a bass line instead. Light and hopeful.
