Fielded, Zath, Verma Recommended The List (Music) Soundboard

When: Fri., April 29, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
It's hard not to fall for Fielded, the solo project from Ga'an vocalist Lindsay Powell. One listen to "White Death," the title track of her new seven-inch on Sophomore Lounge Records, ought to be enough for anyone with a working prefrontal cortex and the capacity to feel. A rapturous, minimalist anthem, it features sparse, sampled vocal percussion and a velvety backdrop of pulsing synths, but the real treat is Powell's clear, fierce voice. Her singing anchors the four-song single, and it's just as moving whether she's shouting to the heavens or electronically warping her voice beyond recognition. Onstage she's no less engaging, often tossing a hand in the air like a gospel singer swept up by a gust of melody or a flood of the holy spirit—and in the heat of the moment you can feel it right along with her. —Leor Galil
