This coincidence is tiny, tiny, tiny, but it involves my favourite band of the 21st century, Field Music – and any excuse I can find to play you some Field Music I’ll pounce on.

Be warned: the next coincidence in this series will also involved Field Music, and it will also be a small one – but, as with today’s coincidence, it gives me an excuse to play you a Field Music song.
