    SPRINGFIELD is a posthumous collection of demos and rarities from avant-disco composer Arthur Russell's unreleased album, CORN. Misunderstood and overlooked in its time, his music drew unforeseen connections between New York's avant-garde, rock, and disco scenes. Drawing upon the rhythmic pulse of Indian classical music and the stripped-down, dub-influenced disco edits of Tom Moulton, Russell's own unique productions bore the distinctive imprint of his fragile but affecting voice--a melismatic, often wordless murmur. A brilliant teaser to his diverse oeuvre, SPRINGFIELD makes for a great introduction to left-field dance-music's spiritual forefather.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Wire (p.59) - "'Springfield' is a sumptuous slice of pop, mixing electro drum sounds with candyfloss synth melancholia and a wafting trombone hook."
