Field Guide March 18th at The Grad Club

Field Guide creates a chimerical dreamlike soundscape, brought to life by his soft-spoken lyrical imaginings.” –Under the Radar“With tender instrumentals and intimate vocals, [Field Guide] is sure to pull at your heartstrings...he has truly cemented a signature sound.” –Indie 88

Field Guide (aka Dylan MacDonald) is a weaver of worlds. Built around his invitingvoice and wrapped in warm textures, his self-titled sophomore full-length builds his most engaging world yet.It lives in a place between darkness and hopefulness with unshakeable melodiesat its heart. “Melody is what makes words fall out of my mouth. It’s disarming. When I find a melody that represents my internal world, I drop my guard. I allow the words to appear out of thin air without judgement. A lot of these songs came to life that way. I wasn’t trying to make anything, but the songs became a home for words that I wasn’t yet ready to write on the page,”MacDonald says.The past few years haven’t allowed for much escape from our interior worlds. There’s been a lot to move through, and many things can be true at once. This album lives at the sometimes-tense intersection of those truths –loving someone dearly whilebeing pulled toward something new, feeling joy in the melancholy,agratitude for deep friendship and an uncertainty of one’s place in it.Thealbumis also alive with thepeople and places that surrounded its creation. Vocals and acoustic guitars were recorded near Riding Mountain National Park in a woodstove-heatedcabinduring one of Manitoba’s coldest winters in years. Bass and drums were tracked at Breakglass Studios in Montreal, a room that already felt familiar fromfalling in love withthe records of tour-mate Leif Vollebekk. Final overdubbing took place at Monarch Studios in Vancouver surrounded by trusted engineers and friends. And constantinspiration was foundinhis circle of Winnipeg creators working away on their own projects. Like The Big Pink house –Boy Golden, Slow Spirit, Roman Clarke, Kris Ulrich and others dropped in on each other to share demos and often lend their sounds to each other’s albums.Beyond his hometown, Field Guide hashad the opportunity to meet some heroes and new friends. He’s supportedLeif Vollebekk, Bahamas, SYML, Wild Rivers, JP Saxe andPenny & Sparrow on their toursthis year. He’s built a legion of fans online and on the road. So, while this is asoloalbum that invites the listener inside Field Guide’s inner monologue world, it really is meant to be lived in together. “These are the truest, rawest songs that I’ve ever written. I’ve never felt so sure about something I’ve made before. And now, it’s yours.”
