With a diverse list of influences that include The Left Banke, My Bloody Valentine, Stravinsky and Thelonious Monk, its no surprise that the U.K. band Field Music create an eclectic brew of modern pop music.

With a core of three members (Andrew Moore plus songwriting brothers Peter and David Brewis) and an ever-shifting crew of local luminaries, Field Music are something of a northeast U.K. supergroup. Peter was The Futureheads' original drummer; Barry Futurehead was in one of the many early Field Music line-ups and sometime drummer Tom English is on loan from Maximo Park.

Their self-titled debut, released last summer, is being hailed as what Time Out calls "perfect crystalline pop."
