Stream Iceage's New Album, Out October 7th On Matador!

Excitement has been rapidly building leading into the release of Plowing Into The Field Of Love, the bold and forceful third album by Copenhagen's Iceage. After sharing four distinct songs (three of which were named "Best New Track" by Pitchfork, all of which were lauded by The FADER and many other respected outlets) off a record stacked with standouts, the band is offering a stream of the entire album for anyone to embed. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied, but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage. It is the anthemic sound of a band in motion, unafraid of change, filled with curiosity, musicality and ambition. Throughout, the four members channel the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship -- piano, mandolin, viola and organ are featured atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth's razor-sharp guitars, and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt's desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words as he sings of what it is like to be out in the world, dizzy with its offerings, perched on a plateau of false confidence, bliss, fantasy and delirious self-denial.
