Jump-started amid the hubbub over Field Music’s rumored 2007 breakup, College of Language may be the side task of Field Music’s David Brewis. The task is a touch gutsier and guitar-heavy than Field Music, but nonetheless displays the latter’s desire for Laurel Canyon-esque vocal harmonies and ambitious period signatures. College of Language’s debut full-length, Ocean from Shore, premiered on Excitement Jockey (U.S.) and Memphis Sectors (U.K.) in 2008. Brewis strike the road to get the album immediately after it arrived, touring the U.S. through the entire spring of this year supported by Tortoise’s Doug McCombs on bass and Euphone’s Ryan Rapsys on drums. After concluding the tour, Brewis transformed his attention back again to Field Music, as well as the group cranked out two exceptional albums in fairly quick succession, 2010’s Field Music (Measure) and 2012’s Plumb. Once completed with this burst of music group energy, Brewis threw himself right into a crazily active schedule of cooperation, production (especially dealing with Maximo Recreation area,) credit scoring silent movies, and remixing, while also selecting time and energy to tour with Eleanor Friedberger’s music group. In some way, Brewis also were able to press in College of Language’s second record, Old Fears, that was released by Memphis Sectors in Apr of 2014.
