More lo-fi comfort from Beer On The Rug, this time from Ohio native Colin Field aka World Series whose "extra-terrestrial pop has never sounded this human". True; these lush, creaky daydreamers are as much "suburban" and pastoral in some Straight Story/fields-passing-by way as somehow existential with imagery suggestive ultra-suggestive of vintage midwestern/space-race and wider dreams of higher places. Mixed up in some Julian Lynch/Ducktails-style niceness with memories of some golden age conjured via wah-wah and the baseball name itself, it's all realized pretty impeccably throughout Episodes of El Niño, which is available digitally now with a tape release on the way.
