Product Notes

Crosley Field is a loose collective of musicians fiddling about with multiple folk musics: it's Alt-bluegrass, Alt-folk, Alt-country, Alt-mariachi. 'Um, wow, you almost never hear banjo with a Hammond organ' is how one critic responded upon hearing Crosley Field. 'If Lou Reed kidnapped Union Station and made them record a mariachi 'Nebraska' on mescaline' is how another described a live show. 'The cows came home last night' is like how they used to make country songs,but they don't anymore. With vocalists Elizabeth Menke and Churchill Brauninger trading heart-broken barbs as only those in love can, they offer up a classic country lament with a Mazzy Star type of distorted psych folk that rings sad and true. One could easily believe that it was a huge hit for Kenny & Dolly in an alternate universe, but it wasn't. From the step-by-step recounting of a man under arrest for killing his lover in '(I've made a) Bloody Mess' to the recollection of a murdered prostitute's last day on this motal coil (A Brief Life Flashes Before Her Eyes), '216 Stitches' offers Bukowski-esque short stories of love and loss and Brautigan-esque novellas of life and humor. This is the first of a trilogy of CDs to be released in short order by Crosley Field.
