Label: Partisan Records

Field Report is a band which consists of an incredibly talented singer songwriter Chris Porterfield. Some of you may already be away of Chris through his time in DeYarmond Edison, a band which has since spawned Megafaun and Bon Iver.

Field Report is more than a ‘stepping out of the shadows of his former bandmates album’ it is an album of immense quality, depth, beauty and true isolation. If you want an album that will make the universe around you suddenly feel empty then Field Report is an album to indulge yourself in. From start to finish you will be focussing on every emotive lyric that is being sung, every delicate carefully thought out sound that is being created.

The opener ‘Fergus Falls’ sets the tone for the album with a gentle acoustic guitar, and a warming vocal delivery that will be sure to touch the hearts of many. This song builds in such a perfect manner with the gentle introduction of drums, strings and harmonies which all combine to create the perfect song. ‘The Year of The Get You Alone’ is a heartbreaking song that sees Chris pouring his heart into every lyric that is sung. ‘I Am Not Waiting Anymore’ has a very atmospheric sound with gentle acoustics and harmonies.

The album continues with one memorable song after another, ‘further highlights include Taking Alcatraz’ which contains wonderful picking of the acoustic guitar, an infectious melody, and distant piano sound together with meaningful lyrics. ‘Chico The American’ a sparse, intense song that you will be sure to become fixated upon. ‘Evergreen’ a majestic song with passionate vocals, backed by a haunting sound.

‘Field Report’ is an album that I feel privileged to have heard. If you are someone who loves music that you can develop a relationship with, and music that can speak to you in times of loneliness then Field Report is an album that you simply can’t live without.
