Landing somewhere in between vintage complexity and intelligent Williamsburg bar-rock, Field Music comes out of their hiatus feeling as fresh as ever with Measure
, a new benchmark but by no means far from their usual marks. Clocking in at 70 minutes with twenty songs, it's not light consumption.... but the journey through the modes never seem stale, even though they often apply circular logic to their music. Each track has something to unfold, whether instrumental, orchestral, or simply sonic bliss, these guys know what they are doing.
