FH052 Grapefruit – Some New-Age Bullshit

grapefruit

RIYL: Tangerine Dream scoring a Ken Burns documentary

Back for his sophomore release for Field Hymns, Charlie Salas-Humara (Panther/The Planet The/Sun Angle) doubles down on the Krautrock spiritual tribalism that made the first album so captivating and pushes the project deep into overdrive – it’s like Bitches Brew for the hippies.

FH051 Go No Go For Launch – Re-Entry

go no fo for launch

RIYL: inspirational zinger music from the Live at 5 Action News Team

I first heard this album in 2006 when Randall Taylor (Graveyard Orbit) sent a demo to a label I was working for. I can honestly say that when this was rejected it planted the first seeds of Field Hymns in my mind – there had to be a place where music like this could exist AND be heard. Almost a decade later we are fully and totally stoked to right that injustice – one of our favorite albums ever and potentially one of yours.

Field Hymns 2014

Thanks to Scott Scholz for snapping this pic

 

Thanks to all who made the 2014 for us the best ever: we made a list here, a list there, and over here, and in the meantime sent out into the world many kickass, brilliant, and well-regarded albums for present and future adoration. But of course we could not do it without all of you, the fans & patrons who make moving forward possible. We tip our hats (and our drinks) in your general direction and can’t wait to show you what we’ve lined up for next year. Take a victory lap y’all – you deserve it for being the raddest.

Happy … ya’ll

FH049 Strategy – Cerebral Hut AKA Off The Grid

 

strategy, cerebral hut, field hymns, portland, cassette

RIYL: Table top electronics, the plulsing of liquid circuits, sleepover party with the Daleks

Strategy is not generally known for his ambient work, but the genre provides a window to the many disparate influences marking his talent. This skill-set is showcased in these live manipulations from the Cerebral Hut installation in Los Angeles. These compositions sound like the subdermal whirring of the guts of LA, and provide a fascinating peek into the mind of an artist in his prime.

Strategy is Paul Dickow of Portland, Oregon

FH050 Sad Horse – Purple On Purple Makes Purple

cover

RIYL: early Pavement, Pussy Galore, a controlled sense of fuckall & abandon

On this Cassette Store Day 2014, it brings us great fucking pleasure to release on tape for the first time a favorite record of ours and hopefully a future jammer for you as well. The mighty two-piece of Sad Horse is a mainstay of Portland, Oregon and has been at times compared to “The Stooges on ritalin” and “Sleater-Kinney with a sense of humor” but these are all just words. Buy this album and crank it up.
