Wildbirds & Peacedrums – “The Well (The Field Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

But The Field still keep their remix spacious and immersive, with the same “warm and swelling” notes that Mariam Wallentin says attracted her to the steel drum in the beginning. Listen:

Earlier today we posted Jamie Smith’s own steel pan-heavy track, “Far Nearer.” Trend alert?

Rivers is out digitally now via The Control Group.
