Field Medic – “Songs From The Sunroom”
We’ve got your RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog to kick off the holidays with!
FIELD MEDIC is the lo-fi folk project of Kevin Patrick. His first release on RUN FOR COVER RECORDS, “Songs From the Sunroom”, compiles material he’s recorded and released over two years from a small sunroom in San Francisco which doubled as his bedroom. The tracks on “Songs From the Sunroom” were recorded during a heightened creative period and released as an almost non-stop flurry of EPs, albums, and singles, all of which have been shared via Bandcamp since 2014. This past January, Patrick gave up his sunroom in San Francisco to travel around the country playing music. The coming year will find FIELD MEDIC recording his debut full-length for RUN FOR COVER RECORDS and touring heavily.

The short film ARRIVAL was created and hand-animated by Alex Myung. No frame of this modern day coming-of-age tale was untouched by Myung but the soundtrack was specifically scored and created by the two-man musical production team, UPRIGHT T-REX MUSIC. The duo is best known for their work creating the soundscapes of the popular games DOTS, Two Dots and Dots & Co. With the soundtrack to the film, they expand their horizons by providing a sweeping, dramatic landscape to a dialogue free film. Only available physically as a picture disc with new artwork created by Alex himself, courtesy of YK RECORDS!

Virginia’s ROTTING OBSCENE stormed onto the death metal scene in 2011 with an impressive 4 song demo. They return with their debut full-length album “Depths Of Decay”. The band features members of Darkness Remains and Human Infection. TRANSCENDING RECORDS is your source for “Depths of Decay” – 50 mins of unrelentingly brutal death metal that mixes in a fair amount of melody without watering down the overall attack.
CARDIAC ARREST is a Death Metal band who began its existence in the bowels of Chicago, Illinois USA in the late 1990s. They consist of 4 individuals with an unearthly interest in all that’s absurd, morbid, unhealthy, etc. Originally released in 2006, “Morgue Mutilations” has been committed to vinyl for the first time in Dec of 2017. A CD re-issue with bonus tracks will be released in early 2018, coming at you from TRANSCENDING RECORDS!
SHELFLIFE brings you AIRIEL’S second full-length LP, “Molten Young Lovers”, coming out on beautifully colored double LP . This album is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s “Kid Games” EP. “Cloudburst,” the record’s first single (which was released this past March), provides a clear insight into the record’s magic. The huge chorus is carried by a vocal melody that stands out as the largest part, only complimented by the waves of cascading guitar. In fact, ‘large’ might be the best possible descriptor for “Molten Young Lovers” as a whole. The tracks on this LP have a larger-than-life quality…
