Editors’ Notes

England’s Field Music isn't yet a common name among American indie music fans, and the group seems to change course as frequently as it changes socks. The changes aren’t stylistically immense; they’re subtler, each record exuding a different feel (and perspective) than the previous. After the double-disc massiveness of 2010’s Field Music (Measure), the boys are snipping and cutting and tightening up. The result is a stunning 35 minutes of pristine pop that belies the group's relative obscurity in the U.S. Fans of British icons from The Beatles to XTC should be salivating over the expansive cellos and elastic guitars of “Start the Day Right” and “Guillotine”, along with the shifting time signatures and vocal gymnastics of “Is This the Picture?” and “(I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing”. With a dash of quasi-funk (“A New Town”), a cappella honey (“How Many More Times?”), and a peppering of ‘70s prog keyboards (“It’s Okay to Change”), Field Music is doing a fine job of living up to its name.

Something Simple For Complex Minds

I was going to write something high faluting about this album, likening it to the works of William Blake, The Beatles and Mike Leigh. I was going to tell you how much it moved my heart to swoon and my body to dance. I was going to opine that "A New Town" and "Choosing Sides" hit with the hardest double whammy since George Foreman. Instead I'll just say that it's a bloody wonderful piece of music that you'll play and replay and replay. Much love to Field Music. X

Album of the year

The Brothers Brewis churn out another batch of intelligent pop.


Ever since the inception of the band in 2003/4, the Brewis Brothers have been lightyears ahead of their peers. Plumb is no exception, a concise, intelligent, catchy, intricate, beautiful and symphonic album by two men who wholeheartedly understand their art. Personally, I think this is by far the best album they've ever made. It feels more complete to Tones Of Town and Measure, whilst more varied and interesting than their eponymous debut.
Its a thrilling musical journey with some absolutely cracking riffs, rhythms and harmonies. A real gem.


Formed: Sunderland, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from Sunderland, England, indie/art rockers Field Music were formed by siblings Peter and David Brewis along with pianist Andrew Moore (who departed after the recording of Tones of Town). Their colorful blend of Beach Boys melodies filtered through a post-rock aesthetic has drawn comparisons to the New Pornographers and the Futureheads. Their self-titled debut was released in 2005 on Memphis Industries Records, followed by Write Your Own History in 2006 and Tones of Town in 2007. After putting...
