I had another adventure in east Austin last week (translation: got lost and used up a half a tank of gas), but all was well in the end, as I discovered another talented musician: Fielded (Lindsay Powell). The Chicago-based singer was part of a concert last Thursday in a little music store called Trailer Space Records. There were a number of local artists performing as well, but I had to leave early and only caught one — the electro-psyche-goth performer known as How I Quit Crack (Ernestina Forbis).
Fielded put on a hell of a show. A one-woman band, she uses looping to create harmonies and rhythms using her voice. Kind of a gothic vibe to her music, though interestingly enough she actually performs gospel music of a sort. One of her songs made me think of a Gregorian chant. Kind of makes me think of Woven Hand in that respect. Here’s a video for one of the songs I particularly enjoyed.
