Following up a widely acclaimed string of EP's in 2011, this is the debut full-length from Rough Fields. The album is released as an eco-friendly CD package including a 24 page book of photography by Sarah Faraday.
"Edge of the Firelight" reveals Rough Fields' full musical scope, as the ten tracks sweep from deep, pulsating sub-grooves ("Summer On The Haight") and intense, epic crescendos ("Girls In Cars") to atmospheric sun-down jams ("Geese") and concrete explorations ("Border Navigation"). There's coherence throughout, though, not least in the album's faithful adherence to Rough Fields' usual sound sources - found objects, broken instruments, environmental sounds, sonic defects and thick, layered textures.
