A Correction Is The New Album From Fieldhead And Continues The Dusty, Bereft Sounds Of Previous Releases – They Shook Hands For Hours (Home Assembly 2009) And Riser (Gizeh 2010).

2010 Saw Paul Elam Depart The Uk For Vancouver, Canada And There Is No Doubt That The Vast Northern Candian Landscapes Have Influenced The New Fieldhead Material. The Familiar Tape Hiss, Scratchy, Decaying Atmospheres Remain In Place But With A Correction Elam Has Managed To Sculpt A Vaster, More Expansive Palate Of Sounds. Minimalistic On First Listen, A Correction Is A Record Which Slowly Unfurls On Multiple Listens To Reveal Subtle Melodies And Details That Don’t Distract From The Overal Ambience But In Fact Set Apart Fieldhead’s Music From Many Other, Safer Artists Within The Genre.

The Violin Of Elaine Reyolds (The Boats / The Sea) Adds A Warmth To The Sometimes Desolate Atmospheres And The Almost Contant Pulse That Remains Throughout The Record Invites You Be Lost For The Duration And Even Hints At More Minimal Techno Direction At Times.

Previous Comparisions Of Fieldhead’s Work Have Been Made To The Likes Of William Basinski, The Caretaker And Grouper, Which In Truth Are Not Far From The Mark. It’s Fair To Say Elam Has Already Stamped His Name In The Ambient / Drone Field With His Previous Outputs And A Correction Should Further Enhance His Reputation As Someone Who Can Seemlessly Marry Soundscapes And Melody To Form An Enchanting, Almost Timeless Piece Of Music.
