Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Field Mouse

A really strong indy band that I first heard about from Hear Nebraska though they were also at SXSW. They alternate between “Wall of Sound” shoe-gazer stuff and more up tempo rock. What makes them work is the combination of Rachel Browne’s amazing voice/lyrics and some solid guitar work. The rest of the band is good too, but damn…

Their newest album, Episodic, has a slightly different lineup and less shoe gazer than their first. But it still has the same music and vocals that make the band so good.

Sounds like: MBV but with better vocals and less noise.

Lyrics:

wait
are we ever going to meet
I feel you creeping out my feet
shadow on the balance beam
