Jump-started amid the hubbub over Field Music's rumored 2007 breakup, School of Language is the side project of Field Music's David Brewis. The project is just a touch gutsier and guitar-heavy than Field Music, but still exhibits the latter's fascination with Laurel Canyon-esque vocal harmonies and ambitious time signatures. School of Language's debut full-length, Sea from Shore, was released on Thrill Jockey (U.S.) and Memphis Industries (U.K.) in 2008. Brewis hit the road in support of the album soon after it came out, touring the U.S. throughout the spring of that year backed by Tortoise's Doug McCombs on bass and Euphone's Ryan Rapsys on drums.
