In a sense, the Nields have always been singing novels, almost from the moment they erupted onto the Northeast music scene in the early 1990s as an uncategorizable folk-rock-art-alternative band. Their songs were about Alfred Hitchcock and young prostitutes in Vienna, about love among the Branch Davidians in Waco and the devastating demise of school-girl friendships, about the later life of Albert Einstein's out-of-wedlock daughter. Their sound was so protean, shape-shifting from acoustic to quasi-punk, that one article described them as a bowl full of granola and M-80s.
