Biography

Good Field began as the solo recording project of Paul Price, former member of Brazos and The Early Tapes, and pinch hitter guitarist and bassist for Voxtrot. While playing with these bands, Price visited an isolated adobe in Morelos, Mexico and wrote a group of songs he imagined for a full band. He continued working on the songs in between tours and eventually compiled enough material for an album. The songs were recorded by Price and friend/fellow musician Nathan Stein, mostly with two microphones at Price’s home studio. After finishing the album, Price assembled the group he envisioned to perform the songs live: Michael McLeod (bass), Kyle Robertson (keys), and Esteban Cruz (drums). The self-titled debut album was released in 2012 and has been described as “vintage dream pop”, incorporating elements of pop-psychedelia, indie rock, and shoegaze. KUTX’s Laurie Gallardo named it one of her Top 10 records of 2012, and Bryan Parker of Pop Press International said, “…it feels good to see a band just doing everything well without being defined by some buzzword descriptor.” The album peaked at #2 on CMJ’s Radio Select Self-Released Chart. In the years that followed, Good Field continued touring and developing their live sound while taking time in between to retreat, write and collaborate on new songs.

Good Field’s newest album, Future Me, was recorded and produced by the band in 2013-2014 in home studios and several secluded locales in Texas using their portable recording rig. Once mixes of the record were prepared, White Denim front man James Petralli spent several weeks in a studio with Price adding creative mix and production ideas to polish the sounds. Released in July 2015, Future Me affirms Good Field’s growth as a group, resulting in a distinct group of songs as diverse as the wide-ranging, desolate landscapes of Texas in which they were recorded.

Since its creation, Good Field has toured extensively and performed at festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, and Fun Fun Fun Fest. They’ve reached #69 on the CMJ Top 200 list, and shared stages with national acts such as The Heartless Bastards, Angel Olsen, Sara Jaffe, Max Frost, Cayucas, Akron Family and Yellow Ostrich.



Lyrics

Our Roofless Home

Written By: Paul Price

My eyes are open
But the room’s too dark

I walk at night
And bruise my feet

Tonight let’s try to pave the morning’s road
Let’s take a walk until the dark is gone
And when we stop– we’ll see sitting on a hill
Our roofless home

We’ll open all the windows
We’ll take down all of the doors

And when we sleep, the sun will burn our skin
The sun will shine, while the birds they nest within
Our family, and friends all in one place
Open arms, open doors
Welcome my friends to a place there’s always light

Our roofless home

Our roofless home
