New Field – “The More That I Do”

Swedish minimal techno crossover Axel Willner, aka The Field, is returning with his second proper full-length, the six-song Beatles nodding Yesterday & Today. While that title’s not as beautifully dramatic as From Here We Go Sublime, it does include a collaboration with Battles drummer John Stanier on the title track, so there’s that. There’s also be plenty of beauty to be found elsewhere. Like on lead epic, “The More That I Do,” which has that familiar driving, crystalline sound: Clipped vocal loops and sharp percussion float through a shimmering, pulsing, densely-layered backdrop until it thins out toward the spare steel-drum finale. Take a listen while you look at the more clearly minimalist Yesterday album art.
