Fresh Stream



Tap in to the dramatic pulse of futuristic synth pop goddess FIELDED. As the singer and keyboardist of Chicago’s heavy prog/psych outfit Ga’an, Lindsay Powell has summoned some pretty serious dark psychedelic vibes over the years. Now living in LA, it’s Fielded all the way for Powell and Ninety Thirty Thirty (released this past Tuesday via Captcha Records) is the most stellar thing she’s done yet. This caliber of slightly weirded-out arena pop is a rarity in the realm of underground experimental/psych bands she is coming from, and is thus all the more inspirational to people like us. It’s extremely ambitious music and she really nails it. The album is diverse in song styles, from powerful pop ballads to electro bangers and jazzy synth musings, and there are more than a few stand-out tracks of each. Her vocals are playful and manipulated at times but always in a way that is deliberate and empowering. She teases out those hidden, perhaps guilty, emotions inside you which get buried so deep that the release is just joyous. It’s her deeply sensual crooning, cascading over really fat synth lines that do the trick. The epic nature of these songs, delivered with such perfectly over the top production, makes this album stand way out on its own–on a dance floor, in a club, on a moon that hasn’t discovered yet. Thanks for taking us there Fielded; it’s a great place to get busy.

Album dropped this past Tuesday, April 23rd on CD/LP via Captcha Records, on the eve of a new moon. ORDER IT HERE. And for those of you in the CHICAGO area the record release show is this coming Monday, April 29th at the Burlington Bar. (Chicago)
