The Field. The Field. The Field. The Field. The Field is a master of repetition. 2011’s Looping State of Mind was one of my favourite electronic albums of all time, a masterpiece of techno minimalism. A few weeks ago he announced his fourth album Cupid’s Head, with a dim shade of grey for the album art colour supposedly symbolising a darker style to his music.
Cupid’s Head is the title track and the first song released via Kompakt, featuring chopped up vocals and sublime beats. This is a warming, encompassing release. Prepare to feel relaxed.
