Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 release, the fourth album from the British Indie Pop band. Plumb was recorded throughout 2011 at the band's new studio on the banks of the river Wear in Sunderland. Largely abandoning the classic songwriting conventions embraced on 2010's Measure, Peter and David Brewis remodel the modular, fragmented style of their first two albums, only now it's shot through with the surreal abstractions of 20th-century film music from Bernstein to Willy Wonka and the off-beam Funk and pristine Synth Rock developed on the brothers' School of Language and The Week That Was albums. Plumb digs into the age-old dichotomy between what is reflective or nostalgic and the disorienting immediacy of the outside world.

This album is for anyone who likes prog rock. This is fresh take on that style of music. (without the fantasy triple foldouts)

HASH(0x9e25c7d4) out of 5 stars Not Their Best But Still Enjoyable March 30 2012
By Rick Langdon - Published on

Let me start by saying I really enjoy Field Music. They are very creative and bring an almost Progressive (think Gentle Giant) flavor to their musical approach. This is not Progressive Rock but it is Pop influenced by it.

Plumb takes a little getting used to. Short tracks with a concept or theme. If you listen with the expectation of stand-out tracks, you may be disappointed. There are a couple, but this album has to be taken as a whole. This is a different listening experience from their previous albums.

In short, I like the album, but I prefer their earlier work. I will say that this is the kind of album that might grow on me with repeated listens.

If you are just getting into Field Music, I'd recommend their previous (Measure) as the place to start. Then pick up the earlier titles and then this one if you have become a "Subscriber".

HASH(0x9e25c9fc) out of 5 stars Oh, Dos Brits Feb. 14 2012
By grog4u - Published on
First were the Beatles, who sold more records than anyone in Britain, then the mantle passed to XTC, who sold more records than anyone in Britain, then Oasis (My least favorite in this hypothetical chain). Now we have Field Music and Andy Partridge can be heard throughout as Field Music becomes the new darlings. Melodies abound, changes are prolific, vocals are clean and clear. I love it!!!!! I only wish their releases were a little longer on time. They seem to run 30 minutes plus or minus. If you liked any of the aforementioned, you will like Field Music....they get by with a little help from their friends.

HASH(0x9e25cae0) out of 5 stars DEAR MUSIC APPRECIATORS Feb. 19 2012
By Constant Listener - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9e25cc54) out of 5 stars Best Effort to Date March 13 2012
By carolyn - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a big fan of Field Music for years. This is by far their best effort to date. If you are a musician you can really appreciate the talent of these guys. I find you can hear more of the XTC and Genesis influence on this CD than any other they have put out. Do yourself a favor and get this CD.

A nice mix of XTC and Beatles with Prog Rock elements. Very enjoyable pop. Easy to listen to and I'll keep this in my playlist for a while.
