For all their smolder, it's fitting that this Columbia, MO quartet chose the name The Foundry Field Recordings: just as a foundry uses furnaces to melt metal, these CMJ favorites bring an orange molten glow to their music. "Battle Brigades II" spills the band's apparent affinity for bands like Built to Spill and My Bloody Valentine, achieving a lush sonic soundscape with similarly warm fuzzed-out guitars and dreamy vocals. The Foundry Field Recordings will duck under the Emergency Umbrella label with their EP Fallout Stations, out June 5.
