Philly based Field Mouse announced a new LP, Episodic, and offered up the first taste for our ears, 'The Mirror'. Episodic marks the first time the 5-piece composed an entire album as a group, and will be available on cassette, cd, vinyl, and digitally from Topshelf Records on August 5, 2016.
Lead track 'The Mirror' builds on the band's talent for crafting revved up indie pop treasures. Toss in Rachel Browne's dynamic vocals and insightful lyrics for a can't miss prospect. Their previous LP, Hold Still Life, is a lifelong favorite, and I cannot wait to get my hands on Episodic, perhaps in limited edition vinyl. I missed them a few months back when they stopped an hour south of me in Birmingham, I'll not make that mistake again. Find 'The Mirror' below.
Friends of the band, Sadie from Speedy Ortiz, Allison Crutchfield of Swearin' & Waxahatchee, along with Joseph D'Agostino from Cymbals Eat Guitars guest in some form on the album. Field Mouse is Rachel Browne (vocals/guitar), Andrew Futral (guitar), Saysha Heinzman (bass), Tim McCoy (drums), Zoë Browne (synth/rhodes/vocals). They are a bunch of ex-cons trying to go straight and get their kids back.
