Good Field began as the solo recording project of Austin, TX's Paul Price, who has played with such bands as Brazos, The Early Tapes, and Voxtrot. After writing some of the album in an isolated adobe by a cenote in Mexico, Price continued working on the songs in between tours with Brazos and Voxtrot, with instrumentation and production help from his friend Nathan Stein.
Composed in a DIY fashion in Paul's home studio, the self-titled album combines influences of shoegaze, indie rock, ’60s guitar tones and pop hooks. Shortly after, Price formed the band known as Good Field – an homage to cricket and desolate landscapes. Joining Price are fellow Austin musicians Esteban Cruz on drums, Michael McLeod on bass, and Kyle Robertson on keys.
While playing with Brazos, Price opened for The National, Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, and White Denim. Through Voxtrot, Price played on bills with Beirut, Beach House, and Little Joy.
The album was released on vinyl in February, 2013.
