The new album: Open Here
     What's Wrong?

ROB SEZ: Are Field Music the next XTC? Or a combination of XTC, Wire & some other 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 all a tad too "out there" for me. But Field Music have been releasing music since 2005 and there's no question 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)
