Fieldhead – Riser (Vinyl)
Limited Edition 10″ Vinyl of 250…
Riser was borne out of a desire to bring the sound of the human voice to the core of Fieldhead’s music, and to rally against an idea of it as peripheral, as an afterthought to the music. The EP continues the love of tape hiss, grainy textures and dusty loops married with brevity and melody to be found in the album preceeding it (‘They Shook Hands for Hours’), but this time the pallete has been stripped back to just the human voice and minimal, organic synthesisers.
Out of stock
Each track on this EP started life as a series of vocal recordings supplied by one of the five contributors: Anna-Lynne Williams (of Trespassers William), Chantal Acda (of Sleepingdog), Anneke Kampman (of Conquering Animal Sound), Elly May Irving (of Glissando) and Esker (of The Boats and The Sea). These recordings were then shaped and coloured to form the base for the music to grow from and to merge with. The result is a beautifully coherent whole, the warmth of the human voice working hand in hand with the emotive tonal drifts of Fieldhead’s electronics.
