Artist: Field Mouse
Label: Topshelf Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 05 August 2016

2014's Hold Still Life witnessed Field Mouse's evolution from a two-piece in to a fully-fledged band. The group are back with their latest offering, Episodic. This is the first time the quintet has composed an album together from start-to-finish...

Episodic contains ten feverish bouts of guitar-pop (31 min, 05 sec). It's quirky, it's fun and it's damn hard to get out of your head.

Field Mouse is Rachel Browne (vocals/guitar), Andrew Futral (guitar), Saysha Heinzman (bass), Tim McCoy (drums), Zoë Browne (synth/rhodes/vocals). The album also features guest turns from Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Allison Crutchfield (Swearin'/Waxahatchee) and Joseph D'Agostino (Cymbals Eat Guitars).

The album contains 10 songs (31 min, 05 sec), with 'The Order of Things' and 'Out of Context' being arguably this LP's stand out tracks. If you're looking for a new sound, something a little different and upbeat, then you may just have found what you're looking for.
