At the latest since their 2010 album "Measure" the Brewis brothers have been well known in the music world. How subtly they juggled on it with different styles and thereby created a very own melange of psychopopop, indie rock and sixties echoes, that was worth all honours. Although they continue along this path on "Plumb", they break away from the belief in fixed song structures that still dominated "Measure". Plumb" captivates rather by its fragmentation: Songs can only be heard occasionally, everything flows into each other and results in a harmonious panorama. Often you can't really follow Field Music. But that's exactly what they want: to lose oneself in the labyrinthine structures of their songs and to remain in them. How brilliantly the whole thing is done can be seen, among other things, by the fact that with "Sorry Again, Mate" they wrap a pastiche of a typical seventies power-skirt landmark, which leaves you strangely moved, in between. Like the whole album, actually.
