mp3: Field Dress- Fingernails

I’m not sure the last time I discovered a song so hard to describe yet so instantly appealing as ‘Fingernails’ by Field Dress.  The first thing I noticed about the song was the lead singer’s voice which is probably the closest I’ve ever heard a band coming to Animal Collective’s Avey Tare.  Then there was the bouncing bass that kept the song at an almost southern rock-like pace that I would expect to hear from bands like Alabama Shakes or My Morning Jacket.  I could go on describing how bits of the song remind me of other styles of music but the best way to experience ‘Fingernails’ is just to go ahead and listen because this song isn’t the type that should be pinned down in words.
