Peter Brewis' (Field Music) high concept pop album The Week That Was has been receiving high marks from the UK press-types. Streetdate is next Tuesday August 26th, until then check out these raves and whistles!
"Brewis has built his thumpy, string'n'piano-laden compositions from the soil upwards, painting layers of 'Ashes To Ashes'-dusted synth creeps, Kate Bush ivory-punch dramatics and Sufjan Stevens-esque string-dives ......TWTW's beauty is obvious when it first hits your ear - one of the curveball LPs of the summer". 8/10 NME
"omniverous visionary pop" **** Mojo Album of the Month
"charaterstically intricate yet marvellously accessable" **** Observer
"Songs with architectural scale and precission..dazzling" **** Uncut
"there are echoes of the early albums by that eighties egghead, Brian Eno. Brewis has synthesised a similarly brave music that is both progressive and humane, that takes melodic and sonic risks - those drums! - but still ends up as vibrant modern pop"
**** The Times Album of the Week
