There are a lot of touring shows coming to Austin this fall. One of those shows I'm looking forward to is Field Music. They're playing at Emo's on Wed, Sept 29th. I first heard of them in 2006 and became an instant fan. The core of Field Music are songwriters and brothers, David and Peter Brewis. They've been touring this year in support of their 2010 release, Measure. I've only seen Field Music once before and I could barely see and hear them through a sea of people under a tent during SXSW 2007. David and Peter Brewis were also at SXSW in 2009 with one of their side projects, The Week That Was. I'm a fan because I'm completely charmed by their brotherly harmonies and their ability to transform their influences into something fresh and original yet familiar. The tracks "Them That Do Nothing" and "Let's Write A Book" are 2 of the highlights (and videos) from the Measure album. If you're charmed as I am by the Brewis brothers, I highly recommend seeing them at Emo's for a rare appearance in Austin.
