8/10 Brian Staff review, 29 October 2009
Fieldhead is Paul Elam from Leeds collective The Declining Winter. Paul currently sports a curious style of beard and is quite often spied in & around the various beer hostels of West Yorkshire with a friendly smile on his chops seeking, or hosting, quality live entertainment. His debut CD proper - 'They Shook Hands For Hours' - is out now, courtesy of the charming Home Assembly crew and it is quite an impressive listen. Merging his love for drone & contemporary sound design with melodic electronica & glitch, this CD pulls you in from the off with the stripped back beats & drowsy phasing of 'This Train is a Rainbow' to the drifting, spectral drone/ambience of 'Half Names' & the looped, atmospheric eeriness of the title track. He's certainly been studying hard has Paul, his love for melancholy electronics, field recordings & ponderous neo-classical movement is most apparent, his pieces are lovingly structured and flow quite beautifully and his feel for both space & rhythm is well considered making this a treat to listen to. For fans of everyone from Max Richter & Four Tet to Jasper TX & Machinefabriek. We have a limited number of copies with an accompanying CD of remixes from the likes of Machinefabriek, Jasper TX, Seaworthy, The Declining Winter, Northerner, Library Tapes, Pausal, Glissando, James Yates, Yuri Lugovskoy and Matthew Collings. These are limited so be quick!

8/10 Menno Customer review, 13th March 2014

'They Shook Hands For Hours' is a scrapbook of sounds and emotions creating a musical landscape that you want to walk through on a sunny afternoon. Or on a stormy mid-October Wednesday.
