  • garde forestier – – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Garde Forestier is vaguely sinister 80’s hold music a lunatic French guru turned into mediation loops. Or perhaps it’s a Casio workstation gone on the fritz but becoming sentient, all whilst dealing with the breakdown of its physical body and the unfairness of bothering with such a burden at such a momentous time. Maybe Garde Forestier really is a front for a Danish trio of nuns who built up these tracks in the brief moments free from the rigors of monastic life. Perhaps we are witnessing the first stirring of a post-vaporwave work unbound and unmoored from its stable of lockstep clone acolytes. Perhaps.

    Garde Forestier is from Tours, FR

  • three fourths tigers – indoor voice – field hymns

    $7.00 Add to cart

    RIYL: the cross-talk of the cerebral cortex whilst dreaming of childhood and just a little bit high

    We are passing into dayglo psychedelic arcades and crystal spheres in the forest, though chrome silly string melting from the trees all over our forearms and faces as we ghost through a mist the vaguely the flavor of raspberry carbonated soda. Three Fourths Tigers is emotional synth and Indoor Voice only adds to the growing body of influential work by Ryan Mulhall, a founding member of the genre.

    Ryan Mulhall (also of Looks Realistic and Ryan Kayhart) lives in Worcester, MA.

  • andreas brandal – murmurs and echoes – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Weary, cold, and alone but not dead, we soldier on under the half-light to some place on the horizon, anyplace really, as the sky and ground remain unbroken, seemingly forever. It has been a real pleasure watching Andreas Brandal evolve from his early roots in experimental noise & drone to this current incarnation as a post-indie/post-rock chamber orchestra Hemingway: “Murmurs and Echoes” sounds like a Western set on an ice field at the nadir of winter.

    Andreas Brandal lives in Bergen, Norway.

  • the snowfields – how to get good sound from a dead ear – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    The first Snowfields album in 7 years is a sublime affair, sounding like a missing album from Julian Cope’s Krautrock Sampler or Obscured By Clouds/More-era Pink Floyd hitting the Serengetti on a shit-ton of mushrooms for some hazy concert for no one, but getting lost on a beer run. Spacy, complentative instrumentals with big, gooey blobs of pathos.

  • cremator – alpha ralpha boulevard – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Cremator’s new album title comes from a tale about a sudden, radical shift from a controlling, benevolent, and sterile society to one of individuality and danger ruled by an elite group called the Instrumentality. Now picture the soundtrack circa 1979 by Klaus Schulze and filmed by Jean Painlevé. Flickering images beyond your stars have trapped you in the dark as you recline in your velvet-lined pod whilst arpeggios and synth washes swirl around the ship, returning from the ether, leaving crystal contrails – and that is just the opening sequence.

  • plvs vltra – yo yo blue – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Rippling like a thumbed-through flip book of vaporous, hazy memories or maybe like a box of old photos left to the devices of the wind, Yo-Yo Blue feels like a curated tour of a fevered dream. Replete with childhood recitals, fragments of half-remembered stanzas and sumptous j-pop interludes, we sense that this was a life lived well and well lived. As the shadows fall around our eyes and the summer skies turn from pink to the bluest-black the sensation of being lifted and rocked slowly slips away…

    PLVS VLTRA is Toko Yasuda, formerly of Enon

  • black hat – covalence – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    The voices of futures past howl through PNG files of grass and waterfalls – thumping and thrumming, bumping and humming – but always subservient to the pulse. It’s a very pleasant factory where the tunes for imaginary holidays of post-Christian digital paganism are made: some static is playing dub on a radio in the background, mechanical insects flit about your head plucking harps from a laser bandstand and the air always smells of ozone. But the beat, the beat is what drives us through our toil – always the beat.

    Black Hat is Nelson Bean of Seattle, Washington

  • garth steel klippert – music for taxi cabs – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    This album was recorded over the course of three years by a cab driver living in a San Francisco office building. Rife with audio collage, dirty saxophone, cheap organ and a dash of lunacy, Music For Taxicabs is truly a lost legend.

    Now in Portland, Oregon Klippert has since gone on to record and tour with Kelly Stoltz, Sonny Smith, Jolie Holland, Beulah, Miles Kurosky and Old Light. Ten years after its completion, Field Hymns is proud to release Music for Taxicabs.

    Also includes immediate download of 8 track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

  • yes father- field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    A lo-fi party waiting to break out! A trio of miscreants and skate freaks from Portland, Oregon and 2/3’s of Klezmer band Shicky Gnarowitz, Yes, Father sings about the joys of WiteOut, rollerblading, cocaine, and managerial disrespect. But don’t take it from us – have a listen and see how long it takes for you to be waking up with these warped pop songs in your head!

  • hammer of hathor – vroom psycho – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Vroom-Psycho takes the analog wave form and bakes it over a cassette fire, toasting and turning, reforging and returning. These five tracks of tape machine loops, sax, guitar and drums explore the gray area between minimalism and provocation. Mark E. Kaylor and Heather Vergotis, under the guise of Hammer of Hathor, have been involved in a number of projects such as Au, CexFucx, Evolutionary Jass Band, Thee Oregon Artificial Limb Co, Rubella , Kinetic Harpoon and many others. An excellent album not for the weak of constitution.
    With digital download card.
