Listen to Tell Me Ida
Good Field began as the solo recording project of Austin, TX's Paul Price, who has played with such bands as Brazos, The Early Tapes, and Voxtrot. After writing some of the album in an isolated adobe by a cenote in Mexico, Price continued working on the songs in between tours with Brazos and Voxtrot, with instrumentation and production help from his friend Nathan Stein.
Combining influences of shoegaze, indie rock, ’60s guitar tones, and pop hooks, the recording wrapped up in the summer of 2011. Shortly after, Price formed the band known as Good Field – an homage to cricket and desolate landscapes. Joining Price are fellow Austin musicians Esteban Cruz on drums, Michael McLeod (Richard Linklater film composer) on bass, and Kyle Robertson on keys. Good Field started performing live and officially released the full length in February of 2012.
While playing with Brazos, Price opened for The National, Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, and White Denim. Through Voxtrot, Price played on bills with Beirut, Beach House, and Little Joy
