Field Music - 'A New Town'
An airless, mazy track
For millennia, funk has been the preserve of vexed-looking men who sound in dire need of shooting their loads post-haste, but Field Music tap into the genre’s potential to convey moral — as opposed to sexual — anxiety. “[i]My body’s stretched like a nylon wire[/i]”, sings David Brewis over this airless, mazy track, in a nervy falsetto that sounds like a pre-rampage Michael Douglas in Falling Down.
