Artist: Peter Fields
Label: Underpool Music
Style: Jazz folk
Favorite Track: “A Caballo”
Music from: Barcelona, Spain
What I like about it: I like how this music cuts the difference between a late-90s Bill Frisell jazz country and an Ennio Morricone soundtrack. The quartet of two guitarists, a bassist and drummer who go by the name of Peter Fields go all-in on their melodies, letting them be both the introduction and driving force of each tune. I like how the quartet keeps things simple, letting complexity unfold under cover of nuance, and never becoming a distraction from the trajectory of a particular melodic inspiration. This is music for kicking back after a long week, the kind of music that can incite thick daydreams or a soothing self-awareness that nothing is immune to the comforting qualities of good music.
Your album personnel: Pedro Campos (double bass), Enric Peinado (electric guitar, effects), Jordi Bastida (electric guitar, effects) and Jose Benítez (drums).
