Field Music is quite something. I couldn’t believe my ears that only three guys could craft such an amazing music.
Tones of Town reminds me a big mix of Supertramp, of Montreal with some experimental hints like Deerhoof, besides the obvious Beatles influence.
But everything sounds classic like Electric Light Orchestra.

I don’t want to mean they’re a collection of pre-made elements, they joyfully remind me of those names but they’re so good at it, they’re cool.

The vocal harmonies are just bliss, the melodies are wonderful.
I regret not knowing them before.

Little Kingdom is a joyful psychedelic electric folk adventure. A revisit to Grateful Dead domains with modern synthesized elements.
A delight for guitar lovers, both acoustic and electric – I love the hypnotic arpeggios.

This is clearly hip-hop-driven, I’ve skipped some rap tracks like The Games We Play (but even Positively Inclined has its charm).
So the overall is amazing. No much people can make me enjoy this high level of hip-hop.
