the real joy of the brewis brothers is that no-one else really does what they do; the interweaving vocals, the rhythmic gear changes, the slightly off-chords, but with the sensibility that keeps them within touching distance of pop music.

Where 2012's 'Plumb' was an album of vignettes & segues, their 6th studio album, 'Commontime', edges towards what people might dare to call “proper songs”. Field Music have never shown off their unashamed love of choruses quite like they do here. Lyrically, Peter & David continue to mine that inexhaustible seam wondering how on earth we ended up here, in this situation, as these people. Musically they wander through a soundworld that takes in 10cc, talking heads, steely dan, roxy music & queen but twists them all into a jerky but cohesive aural delight. "balances the Brewis brothers' predilection for unusual song structures & unconventional instrumentation with a decidedly grown up narrative" 7.8/10 - pitchfork  

natasha recommends: "at 1st, the pace, complexity & intensity of the brewis brothers’ latest oeuvre was a little overwhelming (they never sit still!) but slowly slowly, song by song, ‘commontime’ has become my go-to pick-me-up album. sheer joy!"
