2019 repress. Double vinyl version of the highly-anticipated second full-length release by Axel Willner aka The Field for the Kompakt label. A digital trip through ambient, dance and drone, it's been gently pulsating and washing over you. The Field is Axel Willner, and his release Here We Go Sublime (KOMP 057CD/KOM 413LP) was one of the most acclaimed releases of 2007, receiving a 9.0 on Pitchfork and universal praise. The BBC called it "one of those rare albums that makes you wonder how you ever got by without it." The album is the soundtrack to the spit-shined airport of your dreams -- faceless, futuristic, and fuzzy. You could dance to it, sleep to it, or daydream to it: just a versatile little album. Willner's label, Kompakt, moved on from this successful released with his sophomore full-length, Yesterday And Today. Willner expands his palette, continuing the oblique sampling strategy of From Here We Go Sublime while building up the rhythmic architecture; the album features a group of different musicians and on the title track, Willner collaborates for the first time with Battles drummer John Stanier. Since startling the world with his debut, Willner has been highly in demand as a remixer, with tracks from Thom Yorke to Battles to Maps raising his profile, so that now legions are gathered, in that spit-shined terminal, waiting for their blissed-out departure.
