Hear Field Guides' jangly 'Lisa Loeb Probably Never Pierced Her Ears'

Field Guides

Plenty of bands right now are tapping into the ’90s for inspiration, but few can provoke a full-on Clinton-era flashback like Brooklyn’s Field Guides. The first single off their upcoming debut LP Boo, Forever (out Nov. 11 on Muir Woods) not only nails the jumpy, jangle-heavy sound that about a million twee-pop bands took up in the wake of the influential C86 compilation, its title’s oblique reference to a mainstream-compatible alternative rock star perfectly nails the combination of snark and sublimated fame worship that indie rockers at the time were all about.

Along with sharing their new song with EW, they’ve also made us a playlist that shows off their ambitious and eclectic listening habits.
