Plowing into the Field of Love is the third album from Copenhagen?s ICEAGE. It is new, bold and forceful.Channeling the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship, Plowing Into The Field of Love features piano, mandolin, viola and organ 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.,p>At the other extreme, the album tends to a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number ?The Lord?s Favorite,?. Yet desperation and loss lurks behind. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied - on a recent German radio show, the band played records by Abner Jay, Rowland S. Howard, Brian Eno, and Coil - but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage. Recognised for challenging their emotions through song and performance and with a singular, brooding energy, Iceage have unveiled a video for their new track ?The Lord?s Favorite? that you can watch at beggarsgroup.ca?Iceage has always been a stylish band, so the accompanying video takes every opportunity to drive their point home: while taking lurid pulls off cigarettes and martinis, Ronnenfelt?s searing stare betrays the fact he knows damn well how much he?s playing against type.? - Pitchfork on ?The Lord?s Favorite? BEST NEW TRACK??The Lord?s Favorite? finds Iceage continuing the sonic expansion they began with You?re Nothing, exploring sounds that are more playful than outright aggressive. Here, they forge a slightly shambolic, barebones rock anthem that sounds like a less frenetic Dead Kennedys, or even an alternative-leaning take on The Replacements.? - Consequence Of Sound
