Dear Music Appreciators,
PLUMB by Field Music is a prog-pop showcase sporting sounds that will remind listeners of bands like Yes, Genesis, XTC, and The Beatles. Nothing on this record is conventional. None of these songs are straight arrows. They zig, zag, swiggle, swoop, bounce, and bop along This is artful music and sound orchestration for smart people with some lyrics thrown in for good measure. Percolating liquids, street sounds, church bells, handclaps, rubbery guitars, rumbling bass lines, earbud-busting tuba toots - the list is long and backed up around the block. Constant Listener's top tracks include 4, 8, and 14 but patient people with open minds who like their songs like seeds (the kind that grow on you) will find a plethora of delights while listening to PLUMB.
