* * * * * 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 ].

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
