The Arches is delighted to bring The Field to the Art School union this June.

One of the leading lights in ambient Swedish electronica and techno, Axel Willner is no stranger to the world of critical acclaim. His Kompakt-released debut album From Here We Go Sublime, released in 2007, featured in Pitchfork’s Top 100 albums of the 2000s and resulted in a tour with LCD Soundsystem and !!!.

Third album Looping State Of Mind, released last year, is no different, with Pitchfork claiming it to be “Willner’s masterpiece-to-date” – evolving from the sound fans will recognise from previous album Yesterday and Today into territory that recalls deep house, post-punk, shoegaze, noise-rock, and cosmic techno.

Support comes from Glasgow producer Konx-om-Pax (Display Copy / Planet-Mu) and new disco-house duo MermaidS.

N.B. Takes place at Glasgow Art School union, 468 Sauchiehall Street
