Fields, 'Everything Last Winter' (Black Lab)

7
Everything Last Winter
Critical Mass
Label: Black Lab

by Brian Raftery

Not to be confused with Field Music, the Field Mice, the Field, or Korn bassist Fieldy, Fields are a British/Icelandic combo that take typically bright pop particles (male/female harmonies, quavering synth lines) and rearrange them into devastating laments. A brusque kiss-off ("You're 18 / And you're dumb") is buried under deceptively lovely guitar lines on the acidic relationship song "You Brought This on Yourself"; meanwhile, the mini epic "Song for the Fields" opens with an acoustic shuffle and ends with a Doctor Who-creepy keyboard incline. Winter is an easy album to enjoy, but a difficult one to trust.
