I heard about Foreign Fields from Pat Book’s SoundSalvationArmy. He loves them. I think it’s safe to say we’ll see a novella-sized review sooner or later from him on their new EP, Tuscaloosa, and all the gorgeous Andrew Bird-style vocal wailing held within. As long as that adorable baby of his doesn’t get in the way.
If you want physical copies of just about any of Neighbors music, you’ll probabyl have to track it down on cassette. Let’s hope they grow out of it. If they keep at the quality of their new EP, Power Country, I wouldn’t getting some of this on vinyl, otherwise known as “the physical media I’ll actually listen to”.
The Seattle band is managing their mess better than they did on the 2012 full length John in Babeland. They nail the happy medium between charming and complete wreck, nailing catchy rock and singing reminiscent of Sloan.
