I know I didn’t post best of year lists here last year, mostly it’s because I’m old and happy and I don’t feel like I have to tell everyone everything anymore. That being said, if I had made a best of year music list, then the Field Report record would definitely have been on it, probably very near the top.
Do you know the deal with Field Report? Chris Porterfield, who used to be known as Conrad Plymouth but morphed into Field Report a couple of years ago, is simply amazing. (Oh, and he used to be in a band with Bon Iver, back in the day, but don’t let that put you off)
Anyway, Field Report recently did a session at a gorgeous chapel at Colorado College (so down with bands playing in chapels) and the lovely people at Fuel/Friends were kind enough to post a video of first track off the record “Fergus Falls” and I’ve posted it here for your viewing pleasure.
So, watch, fall in love and if you want to, click here for a download of the whole session.
