"Death In A Field" by Thin Lear tugs and pushes in the right way

Death In A Field by Queens (NYC) based Thin Lear, the project of singer songwriter / producer Matt Longo is an airy yet deceptively dense indie pop song with ever shifting drum patterns, beautiful cascades of keyboards and Longo's clean vocal sound. Like different paragraphs in a novel, sections of music will ebb and flow, drums dropping out completely creating emotional tugs and pushes. The guitar and or pedal steel work is pretty and wander-lustful. You don't hear a lot of this kind of pop music that feels so story based. I thought of Bruce Hornsby and the Range a bit.
