The Field, 'Yesterday and Today' (Anti-/Kompakt)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Jessica Suarez

Swedish electronic dance producer Axel Willner consistently finds the sweet spot between breathlessness and breathing too hard on his follow-up to 2007's acclaimed From Here We Go Sublime. The cover of "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime" (by British pop group the Korgis) is hypnotic and lush, while "I Have the Moon, You Have the Internet" unfolds as a rainforest of clicks, buzzes, and drips. On the title track, Willner lays hair-thin vocal samples over the austere rhythms of Battles drummer John Stanier, editing words down to satisfied sighs. It's all too cerebral for the dance floor, but aren't those sighs why we go dancing anyway?
