Field Music Return With Double Album

Measure Out February 16th Via Memphis Industries/Revolver

Oct 22, 2009 Field Music Bookmark and Share

The hook-laden Sunderland indie rockers Field Music will release their third album soon. It’s their first since 2007’s pretty dang solid Tones of Town and it happens to be a double album. (Those seem to be in vogue this year.) In the interim between FM releases, frontmen David and Peter Brewis focused on School of Language and The Week That Was, respectively. The new song suite is titled Measure and it’s set to drop February 16th of next year, via Memphis Industries/Revolver.

A melodious string quartet weaves and bobs through a fine lattice of bass and guitar on the title track (available right here.) “Measure” is a simple cut for sure, but a nice taste of the chamber indie rock to come. Think of a fey conflation of XTC and early-Talk Talk and you’ll get close to pinpointing the group’s tweaked approach to pop. Field Music will be previewing songs from the new LP on the road very soon. See those dates and the tracklisting below.
