Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Open Here by Field Music, out now on Memphis Industries.

Brothers Peter and David Brewis have been making difficult-to-describe music as Field Music since 2004. In any Field Music song, we can expect playful twists and surprises at every turn, and that’s part of what makes their new album, Open Here, such a fun and enjoyable listen. Inspired in part by current politics and parenthood, they’ve seen the music making process as a sort of escape – or rather, a “joyful exorcism,” as they describe it in a statement. Their small recording studio – which they recently learned would be torn down – a creative sanctuary to do what they love and invite some of their musical friends in to help them along the way. The result is an album that is at once meaningful and thought provoking, while at the same time quirky and lighthearted.
