Song of the day: Field Music – "(I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing"

December 22, 2011

My favourite active* band of the 21st century, Field Music, are about to release their next album, Plumb. (Note to self: That’s poor grammar, Peter. They’re not about to release their previous album, are they?)

As far as I’m concerned, Field Music releasing a new album is cause for shouts of “Huzzah!” and general rejoicing across the land. I’m terribly excited.

The reason I’m mentioning all of this is that although the album is scheduled for release in, er, February (grrr), the band is promoting one of its tracks now.

So for your elucidation, felicitation, emancipation etc, here’s a song from the released-in-February-but-that’s-too-far-away-I-want-it-now Plumb:

By the way, someone left a comment on YouTube saying that “(I Keep Thinking…” sounded a lot like “AEIOU” by The Necessaries. After listening to “AEIOU”, I’d be inclined to agree…

(*My favourite band that made music this century is Sugarbomb. In 2001 they released Bully, my favourite album of the last 10 years, but the band split up shortly after, never to be heard from again. Field Music, on the other hand, keep making music. So it’s more accurate for me to say that Field Music are my favourite active band of the 21st century. And it’s just occurred to me that you didn’t need to read any of this paragraph. Sorry about that.)
