Field Music - Plumb

by Dan Clay Rating:7.5 Release Date:2012-02-13

For a band championed by Zane Lowe in the mid-to-late 00s, Field Music's output could be considered unusual since such an acclamation. After 2007's fabulous Tones of Town the band declared a split, only to retract the idea, have its core band members (brothers David and Peter Brewis) release solo material and then release a two-disc third album with little fanfare in 2010. Now, two years later, they return with a promise of a return to their earlier sound. So what does Plumb bring then?

Well, 15 tracks, some longer than others and some quite small, but all delivered with Field Music's usual individual panache. Whether it's The Beatles-esque pop of 'Start the Day Right' and 'Sorry Again, Mate' or the odd funk of 'Choosing Sides', Field Music are always producing either cutting-edge indie music or rather non-melodic nonsense depending on your point of view.

The long intro to '

' is clearly lying.

Always unusual but always fascinating, Field Music have made another contemporary album that deserves plenty of pasture and blue skies to enjoy.
