Field Guides + CLEBS, b o t

Field Guides:
“Curated by the advertent mind of singer/songwriter Benedict Kupstas comes Boo, Forever, the debut LP by his Brooklyn indie combo Field Guides. A slowly unfurling pastiche of treated guitars, skittering rhythms, folk instruments, and field recordings, the music plays out like thoughtful musings in a Moleskine diary complete with sketches, philosophies, and to-do lists. Though only seven songs long, four of those clock in at over five minutes, often meandering their way through multiple sections, managing to feel both meticulously composed and improvised at the same time. What’s apparent from the opening volley of bird calls and accordion drone is that Boo, Forever is a deeply personal work, and to make any sense of it the listener will have to conform to the album and not the other way around.”—Timothy Monger
