Bright & Seamless

Some say to save the best for last, but on their newest album, Boo, Forever, Brooklyn-based Field Guides breaks that rule. The record opens with their 8-minute crowning glory of a track, “A Song After Grace.” At first we hear birds tweet and whistle in a forest, and all is peaceful. Then cymbals crash and guitars twang, with all band members thrashing about in a big celebration – everything is bright. Then the drums become groggy, the guitars become phased out by drowsy strings, stretching every note out. It’s not easy to see at first, but with a few listens you’ll see the story this track is telling: You’ll soon see a sunrise behind the birds chirping, then you’ll feel the blaze of the sun burning bright with all the cymbals, then sunset comes with the tired instruments, and then you hear birds again and nocturnal creatures as the song comes to a close – night time. It’s the music of the day and night, the sun’s journey through the sky, all of these big concepts somehow etched into this track like a blueprint. Read more…
