Field Mouse - "Black Hole, Son"

Anticipation for the new album from Field Mouse continues to grow over here at If It's Too Loud..., since they're one of the few bands both of us are equally as obsessed with. Right now we can hear a third single from the new album. The title "Black Hole, Son" is obviously a play on Soundgarden's classic "Black Hole Sun," but that's where the similarities end. Field Mouse's song is this bouncy, fuzzy, kinda sorta shoegazey song. It's very mid-90's alternative inspired, but it's also a very poppy song. It also stops just shy of being epic, although on the twee/lo-fi scale "Black Hole, Son" might be one of the most epic songs ever recorded in that genre.

You can listen to "Black Hole, Son" below. Meaning, the new album from Field Mouse, will be out August 16 on Topshelf Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Field Mouse, check out their website. (Seriously, if you've never checked it out before, you need to.)
