Yesterday and Today (The Field album). Yesterday and Today is the second studio album by Swedish electronic music producer Axel Willner under his alias The Field, released by Kompakt on 26 May 2009. The follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut From Here We Go Sublime, Yesterday and Today was recorded in one week in a deserted school on a Swedish island. The More That I Do" was released as the album's lead single on 24 April 2009.
Yesterday and Today is the self-titled debut studio album by American hard rock/heavy metal band Yesterday and Today, released in 1976 through London Records. 25 Hours a Day" (Alves, Meniketti, Leonard Haze) – 3:39. Game Playing Woman" (Meniketti, Kennemore, Haze) – 5:23.
Yesterday and Today is the second album by The Field following his critically acclaimed debut From Here We Go Sublime Featuring 6 new tracks, Kompakt stated that the album is "more organic than its predecessor. The album also has a guest appearance by Battles drummer John Stanier on its title track. Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime" is a Korgis cover.
Double gatefold sleeve bearing a sticker that states 'This record includes a free CD version of the album inside, Support vinyl!' The CD comes in a transparent PVC wallet, and bears the matrix number KOMCD72. Catalogue number appears as 'KOMPAKT 193' on gatefold, but 'KOM 193' on centre labels and in run-out grooves.
The Field follows his breakout album with one that splits the difference between more of the same and new ideas. As with any artist whose singular sound wins an admirable cross-section of hearts- especially in a time when fewer niche artists are rewarded with attention from outside their scene- it's hard to envy Axel Willner as he follows his debut, the 2007 breakout From Here We Go Sublime. Offer a complete revamp of his paradoxically -dense mix of ambient and trance? He'd be accused of selling out his smitten fanbase

Along with Gui Boratto's Chromophobia, Swedish producer Axel Willner's From Here We Go Sublime was one of two high-watermark releases for Kompakt in 2007. Though not a break with Sublime's sample-dominated mesmerism, the resulting album, Yesterday & Today, sees Willner exploring more complicated textures and sonic terrain, invoking classic krautrock and kosmische along with his Gas-sy ambient-techno. One listen to Yesterday's closer, "Sequenced," and you'll no doubt hear a thick arpeggiated synth melody right out of Deep Red before the track retreats into an almost Balearic coda.
I think for most people, the biggest hurdle to jump over on Yesterday & Today is its pacing. Beginning with I Have The Moon, You Have The Internet, which is essentially nothing more than an 8-minute long intro, and then immediately curve balling into a lethargic cover of James Warren’s Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometimes was perhaps not the best way to go about introducing your audience to the follow-up of your white-hot, critically-lauded debut.
