Why do bands feel they have to dress like this? It befuddles me.
In one of the year’s pleasant surprises, The Foundry Field Recordings play sweet, sensitive-dude indie rock. Bits of Prompts/Miscues hint at that idealized, glorious sound that I hear when I recognize it – Sea Snakes, The One AM Radio – and I’m constantly on the search for, and the rest, well. This record falls somewhere between Beulah and Rogue Wave, which is a pretty great place to be.
