I don't know why this is happening on a Wednesday, and I meant to post these dates a while ago, but anyway Brooklyn Lager fan The Field is bringing the minimal techno from Germany to Brooklyn tonight. If you haven't heard it yet, check out The Field's latest album From Here We Go Sublime. Under the right circumstances, It'll bring you to another dimension, but don't take my word for it - according to Metacritic's rating system, it is the best album so far in 2007.
Ticket's for tonight's Studio B show are $12.00 at the 10pm doors, and things keep going until 4am. The Field also just played Pitchfork Fest.
Before hitting up a pre-party for the Deerhunter/Dan Deacon warehouse afterparty, I found myself front and center at the Pitchfork Festival for THE FIELD’s (aka Axel Willner) set. Musically, Willner’s set was the highlight of the festival for me, who delivered with layers minimal techno beats topped of with a bit of shoegaze atmospherics, letting loops dangle, extracting them to infinity, and further reinforcing why From Here We Go Sublime is the album of the year.
