The full tracklisting for ‘Tones Of Town’ is:

Bandmember and ex-Futurehead Pete Brewis said of making the record: “We did loads of stuff to try and get different sounds, recording guitars in corridors and percussion in stairwells, whacking whatever bits of junk were lying around and sampling it, singing into pianos, using the ladies toilets underneath the studio for reverb.”

Field Music play the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds festivals over the weekend of August 25-27.
