Kyle Field returns for his 7th album with a few friends and a fuller sound. Soft Pow'r is Field's first album with a full band that includes Jona Bechtolt of YACHT and Adam Forkner from White Rainbow, introducing drums, piano and bass into a repertoire that previously consisted of Kyle on a beach with a guitar hashing out lazy late night melodies. The album is decidedly mellow in tone, with a usual air of delicate sadness that permeates all of Field's prior material. Seeing release via RAD, a new subsidiary of Portland's Marriage Records, it's a welcome return to the fold for Field who has just relocated from California to Portland. The album shows an aging attitude for the west coast songwriter, an easy transition from nontraditional songwriter into a new breed of lackadaisical troubadour.
