Feels a little like winter still

A band who apparently take their influence from the cult folk-horror film the Wicker Man. Each to their own, I say.

They sound pretty good for an indie band, up there with the Field Music by my reckoning, and their new album is a bit of a cracker.

Fields are lead vocalist/guitarist Nick, vocalist/keyboardist Thorunn, vocalist/drummer Henry, bassist Matty and guitarist Jamie. They tour the UK later this month.

Two tracks as tasters for the new album 'Everything Last Winter', due out on April 2nd:

Some small successes today. After he-who-shall-remain-nameless left the bath running and almost flooded the kitchen-which-lies-beneath, a plumber came round and confirmed our bath sealant has gone to pot and needs replacing, which will be this weekend's DIY job for the-man-who-does-not-do-DIY. Could be, erm, 'surprising'.

The plumber also told me how to fix the-cold-tap-that-has-refused-to-gush-cold-water-for-nine-months. Bless him ! Another potential DIY-disaster in the making...

Hence, 'The death' seemed vaguely appropriate. And it's a great song!
