Field Mouse, ‘You Guys Are Gonna Wake Up My Mom’ – Best Songs of 2012 You Probably Haven’t Heard
Swooning synths, chiming guitar, crypto-lovesick lyrics and an ethereal female vocal: This one's pretty much a no-brainer. Field Mouse come from Brooklyn, where dream-pop bands roam the streets like packs of dogs, but for some reason, these pups stand out. Maybe it's because they do more than just pile on the lush guitar tones. Leaders Rachel Browne and Andrew Futral write good songs -- they just haven't released many.
'You're Gonna Wake Up My Mom' dropped in February, and while there's no word yet on their full-length debut, they're prepping another 7" single for Lefse Records. We can't wait to play the sucker loud, even if Browne's mom is sleeping.
