We’re thrilled to announce that Field Harmonics will appear as support act to new romantic heroes Visage at their forthcoming Birmingham date. The gig is to be held at the Institute on Thursday 19th September and forms part of Visage’s short UK tour.
Still featuring the legendary Steve Strange on vocals, as any 80s pop aficionado will tell you Visage are best known for the classic synthpop single Fade To Grey and the band enjoyed a string of Top 20 hits in the early part of the decade. Touring in support of new album Hearts And Knives, Visage got in touch with Field Harmonics’ Rob Glover and invited him to join the line-up at the Institute as a special guest (he said Yes!). FH are due onstage at 7.30pm.
Tickets for what is shaping up to be an unmissable synthpop event are available here.
We are delighted to finally post the latest video from Field Harmonics, for the single ‘Everyone’. This was a great video to work with close friends on, massive thanks to all involved.
You can also download the single via our Bandcamp page, and is bundled together with a remix by E.L. Heath and a reworking by My Autumn Empire of the album track, Voice.
To celebrate we are running a competition to win a signed copy of the FH album, Walls. To be in the a chance of winning simply answer the following question :
“In how many different shots does the mysterious shadowy figure appear?”
Send your answers by email to : firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading of ‘FH Comp’.
Winner will be announced via the Facebook page on Monday 29th July.
Congratulations to Paul Jorden!

Ben and Rob from epic45 last year donned their producer hats to work with Birmingham’s kings of synth post-rock, Avrocar, on a mini-album called Summer Blonde. The album’s eight songs are improvised sketches, referencing the psychedelic side of Krautrock, harmonious 60s pop and lethargic post-punk. Avrocar member Antony Harding, better known as the leading light in July Skies, has collaborated with Ben and Rob on many occasions over the years, most recently on the track Ghosts I Have Known, on epic45’s Weathering album. Via the links below you can stream samples of the tracks on Summer Blonde from the Orre Records Soundcloud page and buy the absolutely beautifully-packaged 12″ vinyl.

We are pleased to announce a big update to the Wayside & Woodland Bandcamp store, with lots of music now available for stream and download for the very first time.
Kicking things off there’s epic45’s Steps To Further Winter collection, originally sold as a limited edition CDR on the band’s European tour in the autumn of 2009, featuring lost gems and remixes by Isan and Simon Scott.
Then we have MAEII, the second album by My Autumn Empire — aka Ben Holton of epic45 — a classic break-up record stuffed full of guitars, pop melodies and ELO-influenced retro-futurism.
Meanwhile the Documenting The Decay and Haunted Woodland Volume Three albums by the mysterious cloaked figure of epic45 contributor Charles Vaughan are just waiting to be downloaded — ideal if you’re in the mood for the melancholy of faded soundscapes and post-war optimism, with a dash of William Basinski.
Not forgetting, either, P. Manasseh’s delicious album Ana, a quietly understated masterpiece of field recordings, drifting tones and shimmering ambience likely to be of major interest to fans of Terry Riley and Pauline Oliveros.
All these W&W releases are available on the W&W Bandcamp store right now, so check the links below for information, streams and downloads.
