Thin Lear “Death In A Field” – Listen

Thin Lear is  Matt Long, a record producer and singer based in Queens who has a new album – ‘Wooden Cave’ – from which ‘Death in a Field‘ is taken.  It’s something of a genre twisting cut, moving from a pedal steel intro towards an almost jazzy outro.  It’s languid and dreamlike along the way as it meditates on death and rebirth.   Thin Lear has commented that “the song aims to connect the listener to a feeling or a memory of something sad or wonderful from years ago, maybe something they haven’t thought about in a while…a person or a moment.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
