Swedish trance minimalist The Field received innumerable accolades for his first two albums, 2007's From Here We Go Sublime and 2009's Yesterday and Today. Powered by subtle sea changes of density and crescendo — and constructed out of synthesizers and samples — these restrained recordings elicit enormous emotion with simple ebb and flow. The Field's new album, Looping State of Mind, came out this week.

Hear The Field perform a full concert, recorded live at Moogfest in Asheville, N.C.
