Christopher Mansfield, who records and performs under the moniker of Fences, will re-issue his third album Failure Scupltures next month.

Mansfield is scheduled to re-issue the album on March 5 through ENCI Records. The re-issue will feature two bonus tracks, ‘A Mission’ and ‘God Music.’ Mansfield debuted the lyric video for ‘A Mission’ Thursday.

The video features the song’s lyrics against the backdrop of a dizzying array of images that play out, one after the other throughout the course of the relaxed, almost melancholy song’s three-and-a-half minute run time. The musical arrangement that accompanies the video is a distinct shoegazer style composition, what with its ethereal vocal effect and subtle guitar effects.

The lyrical content that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement is just as subdued as the noted musical content. There is mention of being alone, the impact of a supposed alcohol addiction on his personal relationships, and realization of the impact of the subject’s lifestyle. It is a deeply introspective piece, which explains the melancholy nature of the song’s musical arrangement.

Pre-saves for the re-issue of Failure Sculptures are open.

The end is here.  2016 officially ends tonight.  So with the year’s end here, Phil’s Picks has one last year-ender before the clock strikes midnight and we welcome 2017.  That final list of the year is the year’s top new movies overall.  It includes both independent releases and theatrical releases.

One of the biggest surprises of the year was La La Land.  It is a breath of fresh air in a field of films overly crowded by prequels, sequels and remakes.  Little Men, another independent offering, is also in this list.  Sure, its premise isn’t overly new.  But at the same time, audiences don’t see a lot of movies with its premise about two young men becoming friends while their parents fight.  It sends a powerful message.  On the bigger stage, Dr. Strange and Star Wars: Rogue One are on the list along with Jason Bourne.

As a final reminder, the list includes both the Top 10 movie picks from Phil’s Picks plus five honorable mention titles for a total of 15 movies.  That being said, here for you is Phil’s Picks 2016 Top 10 New Movies list.
