Here I take a look at The Follower, the fifth release from Axel Willer under the moniker The Field, which was released on April 1, 2016.

The Field, aka Axel Willner, has announced a new album, the followup to 2013's excellent Cupid's Head. The Follower is out April 1 on Kompakt. Check out the cover art and tracklist below. The Follower is about old myths, finding utopia and how mankind repeatedly makes the same mistakes over and over," Willner said in a statement. The Follower: 01 The Follower 02 Pink Sun 03 Monte Veritá 04 Soft Streams 05 Raise The Dead 06 Reflecting Lights. Watch the Field perform "Over the Ice" at Pitchfork Music Festival 2012: Artists In This Story.

The Field ‎– The Follower. 이블: Kompakt ‎– KOMPAKT CD 130. 형식: CD, Album, Digipak. The title track to The Field's THE FOLLOWER might trick you into thinking that Mr. Willner has suddenly turned to acid. But then the vocal loops come in, and then the familiar Field warmth. It's a juicy bait-and-switch. But "Pink Sun" starts out with the warmth, all the more to let "Monte Verità" blossom in its moodier groove and deeper bass hits. Soft Streams" takes a mellower approach, however, and stays subdued for its long run time. The Field has always edged towards the 10+ minute long track, but here, it seems to have fully come to fruition, with.

The album is Axel Willner's fifth, following 2013's Cupid's Head, and finds him further exploring his signature blend of narcotically circular techno and somber minimalism.

The Field - The Follower Considering who it comes from, "The Follower," the titular lead track from The Field's fifth album, is surprising.

From Here We Go Sublime, his first LP, was the most critically acclaimed album of 2007. How does someone who merely repeats something over and over achieve any level of artistic success". The secret answer is that the question itself makes a false assumption. The Field does much more than just loop something over and over for the entirety of a song
