The fresh face of indie pop arrives at the Lizard Lounge for three weeks in July. 7/7, 7/21 and 7/28 mark the continuation of a growing buzz that the band has created with local gigs at smaller venues around town. Each week will feature a special guest playing a short middle set. Look for updates here or at www.lizardloungeclub.com
Field Day, a local quartet that includes former Globe critic Joan Anderman and current Globe design chief Dan Zedek among its ranks. Recorded at the Somerville studios Armory Sound and Q Division, "Field Day" opens with "Caroline (Crawling)," which combines loopy and churning guitars in a way that's slightly anthemic; Zedek penned it and "Starlight," which starts off jittery but segues into a sweet, chiming shuffle.
Anderman's harmonies on that track are a particular highlight, as are the two tracks where she takes lead, the brooding "Lovely Ghost" and the loping "Dr. Mesmer." Available on CD and download via Bandcamp (www.fielddaymusic.bandcamp.com), "Field Day" recalls a time when seven-inches ruled the schools and their in-house stations' playlists. (Out now)
