As a dyed-in-the-wool minimalist, I've always considered it more impressive when great music is made up of very little. Perhaps it's that the lack of instrumentation makes what is there more poignant. Perhaps it's just that I like empty space. Either way, I'm always excited by artists with minimalist tendencies, and as such, I'm pretty excited about Fielded.
Fielded is the solo project of Ga'an frontwoman and vocalist, Lindsay Powell. Under this moniker, Powell creates airy, atmospheric music in which her vocals are the centerpiece, and all instrumentation is merely a supplement. And while the arrangements are fairly minimal, the resulting sound isn't mellow or slow-paced, as is usually the case. Rather, her music as Fielded is consistently upbeat and lighthearted.
Fielded's debut album, Terrageist, is set for a September 7th vinyl-only release on Catholic Tapes.
