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

2012-09-10 13:55:10 UTC

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 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
