ALBUM REVIEW: Field Music – Plumb

field music plumb

Written for DIY’s albums of 2012

Indie’s hardest-working (and most underpaid) brothers, David and Peter Brewis, remained in their native Sunderland but ventured even further from their jerky art-rock comfort zone than they had on 2010’s sprawling ‘Field Music (Measure)’. With the likes of Roxy Music and the Pet Shop Boys on their minds, ‘Plumb’ turned out to be an album that was fluid both in its themes and its sounds. Songs lasted everywhere from under two minutes to over four, with ideas introduced as quickly as they were abandoned – everything from politics to paying the bills was covered amongst some of the most exciting, exceedingly English pop the Mercury Prize hasn’t gone to.
