Listen to the Title Track from The Field's Fourth LP for Kompakt
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Axel Willner's ambient-techno project The Field is ready to drop its fourth full-length, Cupid's Head, via Kompakt on September 30, and has shared a stream of its title track before that anticipated occasion. Using rhythmic vocal chops, smears of analog reverb, and a clockwork pulse to conjure its condensed catharsis, "Cupid's Head" continues The Field's tireless pursuit of truly lush, all-encompassing tracks made from a few essential elements. It's not far removed from his past work, but Willner seems to be inching closer to his ideal vision of repetitive bliss.
