THIS WEEK ON PHOENIX RADIO:
English rock band Field Music was formed in Sunderland in 2004 by brothers David and Peter Brewis. The self-titled debut album followed in 2005 and included several other guest musicians including long-time collaborator Andrew Moore on keyboards.
One reviewer, Marc Hogan on Pitchfork, called it “buzzing indie pop rather than herky-jerky post-punk”, but it was never easy to categorise Field Music’s sound.
Another reviewer, this time Paul Brown who was reviewing the 2018 album Open Here on Drowned in Sound, wrote: “In their 12 years, we’ve had five ‘proper’ albums, a rarities collection, a covers record, a soundtrack to a silent 1920s documentary about fishing, a set of improvised instrumentals with Warm Digits, and at least three other projects.”
So, there is no point trying to describe their music in a few short paragraphs here.
Instead, isten in as Dave Hewitt presents Field Music - In Focus on Phoenix Radio - Saturday evening at 8pm.
Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.
So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.
Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.
To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.
Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.
So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
