BioHaunted by the voices of generations past, Steve Von Till's delicate and intense songs have the rare ability to speak for one while they speak for us all.
If I Should Fall to the Field is filled with urgent melodies and majestic crescendos of chiming guitars, cymbal crashes and distant vocal harmonies that lull behind Von Till's thick, weathered voice. Throughout, the songwriter's somber vocals are recorded with such breathy intensity that it sounds as though each lyric were a whisper for only one listener to hear. He has clearly found the same powerful subtlety harnessed by Michael Gira, Mark Lanegan and Jeffrey Lee Pierce. The album is simultaneously universal and personal; with each exposed nerve of the artist's life, it demands that we reveal the same.
