TONIGHT: Fieldings release EP "It's All You, Cookie" at Rubulad

What better spot for Fieldings to debut a whole new EP of their wonderfully weird tunes than Rubulad, Brooklyn's nomadic venue? The trio of soft indie rockers will drop It's All You, Cookie tonight; its final track, "Soft Shell Crabs", has already seen release - we are streaming it below. It retains the same echoing dreamy goodness as their tracks from their previous album "Soft Tissue", but it sounds as polished as -- if not more so than -- anything the group has released in their six years of existence. Take a listen to "Soft Shell Crabs" below, and if you can make it to the show, RSVP to Rubulad for the address. - Will Sisskind

   

Album premiere: Fieldings' debut LP "Soft Tissue" - live at Alphaville on 11.18

Dream pop group Fieldings will perform at Alphaville on November 18th to celebrate the release of their debut LP, Soft Tissue. It's their first major release in a few years, but like the group's previous EPs and singles, tracks come with the chilling lilt of Lucinda Hearn's voice. Joining the five-piece on the bill are Philly-based musician Andrew Conklin, multi-instrumentalist Renata Zeiguer, and Michael Rocketship, an experimental group featuring members of tUnE-yArDs. If you can't wait to hear Fieldings live, check out all of Soft Tissue below in this exclusive Deli premiere. - Will Sisskind

   

Brooklyn artist on the rise: Fieldings

We mentioned Fieldings a few days ago in this blog, and we've been intrigued by their music since then. This is the project of a NYC based songwriter who recently moved from Sydney, Australia to Brooklyn, whose first name appears to be Lu. Her 2014 three song EP 'Wild Release Vol I' brings back to mind the emotional expressionism and experimental droney inclinations of Lisa Germano's early albums, although the tone here is more subdued and the production sparser. In it, Lu's voice shines for confidence and tone, together with her songwriting and production skills. Follow up EP 'Wild Release Vol II,' released a few months later, picks up where the debut left off, with acoustic guitars blending gracefully with electronic elements, samples, and percussion sounds that are alternatively acoustic and electronic. We are curious to hear what an edgy scene like NYC will do to this already original artist, in particular now that Lu appears to have band mates. Check out our favorite single 'Idioglossia,' strteaming below.
