Mr Pop Society himself, Christian Beller präsentiert diese Band. Hübsch, elektronisch, sehr relaxed kommen die Herrschaften daher (oder isses nur einer?) Anyway, die Amis schreiben über die Musik in ihren Blogs das da:
Blithe Field is Ohio’s own Spencer Radcliffe, who, incidentally, is friends with the one-man show behind Foxes in Fiction. Spencer’s latest album, Beautiful Wave ’74, employs a simple formula: buttress a simple organic melody with spoken word samples and found sounds. The album is simple without being childlike, reserved without being restrained. The two songs I’ve posted here (“Bible School” and “Ghost Riding the Whip”) give you a glance of the range on the album. The cool beat that drives “Bible School” is belied by mid-song monologue about rectangles and straight lines by a British guy (who sounds remarkably like Martin Amis). Meanwhile, the gorgeously hypnotic “Ghost Riding the Whip” never sounds as busy as all the blips and tocks that actually make up the song.
I’m kind of excited to leave a frustrating workday of meetings and bureaucracy with a headache bubbling in my gray matter. Blithe Field’s Beautiful Wave ’74 is going to be right there with the antidote.
