Good Field began as the solo recording project of Paul Price, who had played with Austin bands Brazos, The Early Tapes, and Voxtrot. During a stay in an isolated adobe near a cenote in Mexico, Price wrote a group of songs (he imagined for a full band). He continued working on the songs in between tours and put together enough material for an album, which he recorded DIY in his home studio. After finishing the album, Price assembled the group he envisioned to perform the songs live; Michael McLeod (bass), Kyle Robertson (keys), and Esteban Cruz (drums). The self-titled debut album was released in 2012 and has been described as 'vintage dream pop', combining influences of shoegaze, indie rock, '60s guitar tones, and pop hooks.
Good Field's newest album, Future Me, was recorded and produced by the band in home studios and several disconnected and secluded locales in Texas. The addition of the new members in the songwriting and recording process created a new environment for Price's talents to filter through.
Good Field has toured extensively, performed at festivals like SXSW, CMJ, and Fun Fun Fun Fest, reached #69 on the CMJ top 200 list, reached #2 on CMJ's Radio Select Self-Released Chart, and shared stages with national acts including The Heartless Bastards, Angel Olsen, Sara Jaffe, Max Frost, Cayucas, Akron Family, and Yellow Ostrich.
