Field Music+Wye Oak
England's Field Music (featuring a former Futurehead) play taut, tuneful guitar pop in the mold of early XTC; they've got a new one on the way in early 2010, their first since the two brothers who front the band each released an album on his own last year. Wye Oak, from Baltimore, are looser and gauzier; they split the difference between neo-roots and post-shoegaze. With the reunited Pulsars and Rumours.
