The Field Mice: Missing The Moon 12"


Missing The Moon (Sarah057)

I didn't intend to post two Sarah releases in a row (this one being a 12" single, rather than a 7"), but that's the just the way it ended up going I guess. It all doesn't really matter though because if you've heard this record you know it's awesome, and if you're hearing it for the first time, it's gonna be awesome.

One of their very longest songs, "Missing The Moon" blended indiepop and electronica perfectly, in a way that a many bands have tried to do, but haven't quite succeeded in doing. It opens with a nice soft synth that bleeds right into a busy layer of keyboards, with drums following right along. Whenever I listen to this song I just want it to go on forever and ever, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.

The b-sides, "A Wrong Turn And Raindrops" and "An Earlier Autumn" contrast the overly electronic sound of "Missing The Moon" really well, both of them being nice relaxing acoustic tracks. Listen to it on repeat and by the time the b-sides are over, you should be ready for "Missing The Moon" again! More info on The Field Mice at Tweenet.

Random: do you know "The Eames Era"? I just recently discovered them and fell in love; I think you'd dig them.
