The Airfields : Laneways EP (Humblebee)
Time to talk about this captivating EP from the Toronto band "The Airfields" released earlier this year on Humblebee. These 6 songs instantly make me think about the highly influential "The Wake", cleverly combining Factory's up-beat bass lines (Nowhere Left to Go, Imaginary Stars) with jangling bits (Lonely Hall) and those effete noisy walls (Tracks in the Snow, The Turning of the Leaves) reminiscent of The Jesus & Mary Chain. Fabulous work.
