9/10 Brian Staff review, 14 May 2009
The Field i've only just recently been getting into, this man who creates what Brett hilariously terms as "emo-house". I'm unsure how to categorise his music, i'd rather not. His tunes in the past have apparently been constructed from micro edited vocal snippets and this symphonic, hypnotic brand of minimal techno and house and has a similar feel in places to Wolfgang Voigt's more ecstatic moments. 'Yesterday & Today' is his new opus, 6 long tracks of cerebrally massaging electronic loveliness, the opener like a glistening motorik symphony which melts deliciously inside your head, 'Everybody's Got to learn Sometime' is a blissed out version of The Korgis classic which also became an early 90s rave anthem. Axel Willner smothers it in the finest downtempo sheen, static clicks, his debut spot on gentle vocals, that euphoric yet languid stuttering synth that's so distinctive, almost quasi religious. This is the new wave of lounge rave! The next two numbers each clock in over 10 mins each, Pulsing micro-techno from another galaxy, so crystalline & gently hypnotic with some gorgeous detail flowing under the tranced out synth washes & understated 4/4 thump. There's moments that take you the same places as early Ulrich Schnauss, when a gliding bassline wanders into the fold, enveloping the song in a peaceful groove. This is modern home listening techno, lovingly constructed with an ambient heart beating within a body of cheeky backroom club slayers. On Kompakt, CD/Dbl vinyl

10/10 Joe Customer review,

bought this on the basis of brians review, and the mention of a vague similarity to some of wolfgang voigt's work. i was not disappointed. sounds not dissimilar to 'nah and fern' (everyone should buy the 4 CD set instantly - or the vinyl if you can find it) in places but without that 'wall effect' that voigt so ably uses to muffle the bass lines, but a bit more layered than his studio 1 type stuff (again, buy his compilation CD from the normans now). the version of 'everybody's got to learn sometime' grows on you, though i think beck's version off the soundtrack to 'eternal sunshine of the spotless mind' (only) just pips it. track 3 - 'leave it' - is an absolute stormer, and as soon as the needle gets to the play out i just want to pick it back up and start it again - superb - i wish it could just go on and on. an excellent album to just lie down, relax, empty your mind of stress, and watch the clouds scurry by. not a duff note played anywhere on this lp, and i just hope they can keep this level of musicianship up on future work. vying with tBDs 'further vexations' for best electronica of the year so far.
