Field Mouse

Fact:  I’m a sucker for cute female vocalists.

I stumbled onto Field Mouse while I was browsing the Pink Couch Sessions website – a site known for creating respectable live (albeit stripped-down) videos.  I was struck by Rachel Browne’s soft, breathy voice (especially apropos considering the band’s name).  Upon further review, I found the band’s debut album, You Are Here, on Bandcamp.  The album is full of  sharp drumming and reverb-and-tremolo-laden guitar leads.  Field Mouse have definitely created a really great indie-pop album.  It reminds me of bands like Vedera or The Rocking Horse Winner – except texturally moodier at times.

You can download You Are Here on Bandcamp (pay what you want) or pick up a physical copy on their webstore

Here’s my favorite song on the album (so far) – “Anomie”
