Field Day - Christian Television 7" ROR 015
Field Day's debut 7", Christian Television is a three-song spate of lurching but easy-going math rock not far from the likes of Ghosts and Vodka or a less tense June of 44. Though "The Fast" and "And Bi-Curious" (I get it!) are succinct spit-takes of restrained, head-swaying motion, four-minute-plus closer "Barbie with Gun" allows the band's dynamic rhythms and changes to stretch with more space. The guitars play off each other well in this one, driving into long fits of Built to Spill-esque distortion and off-key pulls towards the bridge and finish. It's familiar, but done well.
