Welcome back to another Music Mondays installment. This week features Field Music with their new release, Commontime. I was first introduced to this band back around 2010 thanks to my cousin, Jeff. That album, Measure, came in a big music swap and got lost in the deluge of new (to me) music. I found it later and really enjoyed it, but once again it became lost in the tidal wave of new music I picked up at the time. I was pleasantly surprised to learn their newest offering dropped last Friday.
The first song I came across (above) reminded me of many early Talking Heads songs and the commenters from the Tubes echoed that sentiment back to me. What I couldn’t put my finger on until recently was that they also remind me of Squeeze and Todd Rundgren in both style and vocalizations. I’ve only gotten to hear five of the songs off this album, but so far I’m really liking it. What do you think?
