Field Music Announce New Album, Free Download And UK Tour PDF Print E-mail
Written by George Shaw

ImageSunderland's very own, and Floatation Suite favourites, Field Music have announced details of their new album and a UK tour. Plumb, the fourth album from the brothers Brewis, will be released through Memphis Industries in February 2012. To celebrate the announcement, the band have made the album closer, (I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing, available as a free download from here.

Recorded over the course of 2011, at their new studio on the banks of the river Wear in hometown Sunderland, the album largely abandons the classic songwriting conventions embraced on their 2010 double album 'Field Music (Measure)' and instead remodels the modular, fragmented style of the first two Field Music albums; only now shot through with the surreal abstractions of 20th century film music from Bernstein to Willy Wonka and with the off-beam funk and pristine synth-rock developed on the brothers' School of Language and The Week That Was albums


In a stark contrast to 2010'a double album 'Field Music (Measure)', Plumb squeezes 15 tracks of lovingly hand crafted, synth-rock madness into a succinct 35 minutes. The track listing for the album is as follows:

Start The Day Right
It's Okay To Change
Sorry Again, Mate
A New Town
Choosing Sides
A Prelude To Pilgrim Street
Who'll Pay The Bills?
So Long Then
Is This The Picture?
From Hide And Seek To Heartache
How Many More Times?
Ce Soir
Just Like Everyone Else
(I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing
