FOUNDRY FIELD RECORDINGS
The Foundry Field Recordings are in a lot of ways, exactly as the picture above shows and as their name tells - almost a rogue group of audiophiles, out in the world to discover any sound they can and see what they can then do with it. Forming out of what seems like field studies with lead Billy Schuh and a variety of artists and sound equipment, the collected recordings were all brought to you in their release, Prompts/Miscues.
The first song that drew me in was Buried Beneath the Winter Frames. I admit, it was because of the close resemblance the song had to a favorite group of mine, Sweden's Radio Dept. Beyond that, I found a bit of My Bloody Valentine and Snowden in them, with the loud, fuzz guitars and vocals that sound almost as if they are coming through the other end of a pay phone. "Shoegaze-pop resonating with strategic feedback and dance-worthy hooks" creates some interesting "modest nostalgia".
