* * * * * Lanfair Field - Sopor * * * * *

Lanfair Field is [ Bobby McElver ] and [ Matt Richter ]. They formed somewhere around 2003 after having played together in bands since 1998. This timing was unfortunate because Matt then lived in Los Angeles and Bobby lived in Portland. They were able to collaborate over the internet, and in 2005, were in the same room long enough to record the Sopor EP.

Since then, Bobby has moved to New York and Matt just moved around Los Angeles. Bobby is now the sound designer for the Wooster Group, and spends most of his time travelling the world with them, while Matt just stays in Los Angeles and mopes. They are currently trying to finish mixing their latest effort, the Look at that Fucking Sky EP.

The first single, Walking Distance, also features their first video. I dunno if there's anything else I need to put here. I you would like a copy of Sopor, I'll gladly send a link or something. It's just individual tracks at the moment. NOTE that the link presented here is the band really old EP (Sopor) and a few assorted tracks we have on Soundcloud. We (lanfair field) are currently working on mixing a new EP called [ Look at that Fucking Sky ].

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For an EP that goes way back to 2005. Seven years ago I must say Landfair Field duo was well ahead of their time. [ Sopor "EP" ] brings a sense of satisfaction, a deep in and out breath and peace to the mind as all the movements wrap itself all around you in slow motion. The instruments are played softly and the tunes are gentle and (un)abrupt. Definitely something you must listen and enjoy. I look forward to [ Look at that Fucking Sky ].

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
