#214: Field Music, “Making a New World”

Field Music’s new record is an odd but interesting one – a concept album about the after-effects of the First World War (and not about the war itself), worth reading about on the band’s Bandcamp page. It’s a slow first half of January when it comes to album releases, as always, but there are plenty of singles coming out every day. On our second playlist of the year, enjoy new tracks from the likes of The Men, MICH, Wolf Parade, Alan Power, Destroyer, Aoife Nessa Frances, The Shins, Califone , Nathaniel Rateliff, Christopher Paul Stelling, Andy Shauf, Grandaddy, Susanne Sundfør, Kyle McEvoy & Ed Askew, Moses Sumney, Bonny Light Horseman, Frazey Ford, Lilly Hiatt, Frances Quinlan, Anna Burch, Tennis, and The Black Lips.
