Review - Fieldhead - They Shook Hands For Hours

Fieldhead - They Shook Hands For Hours

View The Review

7 out of 10

To be brief, They Shook Hands For Hours sounds like Merzbow doing a chill-out album. Yes, it is that good - and disturbing. Minimalist without being minging, drone without being dirge, Fieldhead conjures up a variety of soundscapes to lose oneself in, like opening a door and suddenly being swamped by the cut-up soundtracks to late-night films. Suggestion - put Eraserhead on with the sound turned down and play this album while you watch. Or try Yellow Submarine. It'll probably even work its magic on Four Weddings and a Funeral.
