The Foundry Field Recordings

During the Civil War, Missouri was a border state, supplying formal regiments and informal militias to both sides of the conflict. Therefore, I’m not sure if Clay would consider The Foundry Field Recordings — hailing from Colombia, MO — a Southern band. Regardless, they tend to be a shimmery pop delight, with long, serious compositions, a little precious but a lot of fun. I especially like “Buy/Sell/Trade” (which appears on both of the EPs below) and “Dancing Lights/Slow Machines.” Sure hope y’all do too, now.

  1. Joe, I’ve had many discussions with friends from Missouri and Kentucky about whether their states are Southern. Or not Southern. But rather than get bogged down in those discussions, I would like to say that “Buy/Sell/Trade” is an awesome song!
