Field Music CD cover 'Plumb'

One of my favorite albums so far this year is "Plumb", the fourth album by the British quartet Field Music. The group is led by brothers Peter and David Brewis.

Listen to the Story.

Their music has been described as post-pop for punk lovers, which is quite accurate, but there's also a love for weird time signatures and surprising melodic turns.

Field Music are influenced by 1960s chamber pop and 80s new wave.

The Brewis Brothers write catchy, hooky power-pop songs without compromising any of their artistic integrity.

An example of this is their song "(I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing," which would be a hit single in a more just world.
