Nodding to bands like Yo La Tengo, the Cure, and the Flaming Lips with their cerebral, reverb-heavy brand of indie pop, the Foundry Field Recordings formed in the early 2000's as a vehicle for songwriter Billy Schuh. Schuh started his first band, Billy Schuh & the Foundry, while he was a student at the University of Missouri. Following dozens of name and lineup changes, Schuh & the Foundry eventually morphed into the Foundry Field Recordings, consisting of Schuh, Benjamin Hook, Becky Baxter, and Daniel Stegall. The band released its debut EP, Robots as Fathers, in 2003, and their first full-length album, Prompts/Miscues, came out three years later. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi
