Field Music has always been orchestrally adventurous, but their new LP Plumb might take their unorthodox riffs to fresh, frenetic heights. Sounding more like Dirty Projectors-level noodling, their latest "A New Town" is a fluid, forceful exploration of falsettos and jumpy basslines. Plus the sound effects at the end are rather suggestive of some parallel activities for listening. In short-- it's an awesome harmonic adventure, and another reason why the full LP should be high on the to-do list for February.
