Our good friends, Foreign Fields, and house show alums have been busy these last several months, playing shows all over the Southeast, Midwest and in New York City for CMJ, including a showcase with Communion. Between a multitude of dates and their time spent working on new material, they had a chance to record a trio of songs live with OurVinyl out at my family’s farm, where we hosted them for one of the absolute favorite moments of the year, for a house show on my birthday. The guys at OurVinyl perfectly captured Foreign Fields’ gentle intensity with a bucolic background perfectly meshing with their fresh harmonies. The three videos have received nearly 300,000 views in a weeks’ time on the OurVinyl website, and it is easy to see why after watching the band perform “Names and Races” here.
Foreign Fields are playing tomorrow night at Exit/In with some of Nashville’s fastest-rising bands, Wild Cub, Vinyl Thief, Casa Castile and Afterlife Parade for Brite Revolution’s Poverty is Real Benefit. It is going to be one insanely energetic show. Tickets are just $5 and proceeds go to benefit Open Table Nashville. If you can find a better way to spend $5 on Saturday night, I’d love to know what you come up with. As for me, I’ll be there enjoying every second of this fantastic lineup.
