Field Mice, The - Skywriting + Singles

(LTM2421: 5024545310221)
Release date: 2005
Genre: Indie Pop, Dance, Ambient


Skywriting + Singles combines the second Field Mice album (released by Sarah in June 1990) with all tracks from the EPs The Autumn Store and So Said Kay.

For Skywriting the band had expanded from a duo to a three piece and now drew influence from the dance and ambient scenes. The results included nine minutes of sequenced rhythms on Triangle, as well as Humblebee, an extended sample-barrage whose 'chocolate/love/sex' mantra became a bestselling t-shirt.

The Autumn Store (January 1990) and So Said Kay (September 1990) returned the band to gentler pastures, with So Said Kay awarded Single of the Week by Melody Maker. This wealth of mid-period Field Mice material is completed by two rare compilation tracks (Other Galaxies and This Is Not Here) as well as three previously unreleased cuts: I Thought Wrong, Right As Rain and Heart Disease Called Love.

The double CD set runs for over 90 minutes, with detailed liner notes in booklet.
