The band might be dismissing their first two albums as ‘shoddy home recordings’, but that doesn’t really do them justice –  “Business” was a big KUTX favorite. Yet there’s no doubt Good Field’s third album, Surface Tension, is a step up. Hatched in West Texas desert enclaves on weed-fueled late night sessions, the band brought the sessions home and began polishing. Justin Douglas was the primary engineer, but Spoon’s Jim Eno mixed a song, and White Denim’s James Petrali guests as well. Overall, guitarist/vocalist Paul Price steps up with newfound clarity and the rest of the band falls in right behind; these are assured pop gems that haven’t lost the feel of their rugged landscape origins. Good Field will host a KUTX after hours on January 10th. Surface Tension will be released February 1st.
