This is a track which premiered on the Filter magazine website recently. It's by Brooklyn quartet Field Mouse who on 28th February will release a clear vinyl seven inch which will feature "You Guys Are Gonna Wake Up My Mom", recently featured in these pages on the A-side and "Happy" on the reverse which is described as a "Heavy Guitar Squall" and I look forward to hearing that. You can pre-order the seven inch at the Small Plates Records website.
