     What's Wrong?

The new album: Open Here
Are Field Music the next XTC? Or a combination of XTC, Wire, Prince & some band you've never heard of? The answer probably depends on which Field Music album you're enjoying and your own taste in music. One writer describes their sound as a 
"colorful and hyper-musical blend of tricky Beach Boys melodies filtered through a post-rock-meets-prog-rock-meets-soft-rock aesthetic" — which probably fit their sound several albums ago. However you describe it, it's rather "out there" for my sensibilities. But Field Music have been releasing music since 2005 and there's no denying they're hugely talented & quite entertaining. Your new cup of tea, perhaps? The new album, Open Here (4-star review from Mojo), is out today.

FLAC (2018 set in flac; 2015 lossy set is included)
