Field Music (Measure) by Field Music

Measure was probably the biggest haul of Sunderland art rockers Field Music so far. The sprawling album contained 20 tracks of their clever meanderings that recall the likes of 10CC, Sparks, Prince, Talk Talk, David Bowie and literally anyone who has done something interesting with guitar music over the years. You're going to have to put in a long shift to get through it but the rewards are many.

What can I say about 'Measure'? It's all over the shop, a sprawling mass of fractured grooves and foolhardy reinterpretations of music that, under general circumstances, should be left well alone. It's not unfair to call Field Music the 10CC of our time but that would be forgetting the influence of The Beatles, Roxy Music, Queen, Sparks, Led Zep, Supertramp, Prince, Bowie and many, many more. 'Measure' is a celebration of the recording studio and the creative possibilities it presents to folk with an abundance of ideas and musical skill. Much like Jim O' Rourke's 'Insignificance' on 'Measure' the group are confident and playful in their approach, casually reshaping classics in their own image. Nothing here you could call entirely new but what they do with the source material is a thing of wonder.
