Win: 3x Field Music's new album '(Measure)'

No, Field Music doesn't do field recordings, so no whale sounds or rippling beaks here, nor do they make military battlefield music, but what they do make is uplifting, energetic indie rock, that's sonically as rich as most field recordings and just as stimulating as the average battle hymn. Their ambitious pop songs are complex and full of detail, with delicious, exquisite arrangements, by turns reminding of XTC, The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac. So yes, Field Music harks back to the classics, but meanwhile their own brilliant songs are new classics for the future. Beautiful pop music for indie pop connoisseurs.

We can give away 3 copies of Field Music's newest, two-disc double album (Measure). All you have to do is email the correct answer to the following question (and your full name and address) to lgwblog@gmail.com:

In what fellow Sunderland-based band did drummer Peter Brewis also play?

Winners will be informed by Monday. Field Music will be playing Le Guess Who? on Saturday Nov 26.
