Field Music - a band worth taking your time for, discovers Liza Williams, while Barcelona's Mujeres continue to bag new-found fans. It was the most thorough sound check I have ever witnessed. The Brewis brothers both fiddled and tweaked every control and string with finite precision, until they were happy with the set up at the Masque.

The prize for the sweetest band so far at Sound City must go to Mujeres. The four piece from Barcelona play garage rock akin to the Black Lips, with bags of enthusiasm breakneck-speeding through a set at Mojo. 'Aren't the Beatles from here?,' the vocalist enquired, 'It's just I haven't seen any posters'. Ordinarily I would assume that was a sarcastic jibe, but he was so genuine I think
