Field Report is an American folk band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin led by singer/songwriter Christopher Porterfield. The band's name is an anagram of the surname Porterfield. Chris Porterfield, the leader of Field Report, originally played with Justin Vernon (now the creative force behind Bon Iver) in the Vernon-led band DeYarmond Edison. After the breakup of DeYarmond Edison, Porterfield worked on his own project, Conrad Plymouth, then eventually changed focus to work on the band Field Report.
Field Report has got the detailed and nostalgic part of Callahan's lyrics down pat, namedropping over 100 proper nouns into the 15 songs that were whittled down to the album's 11: Doris Day, Glen Shirley, Dom DeLuise, JonBenét Ramsey, the . But unlike Smog and "Fergus Falls", they're excessive. Mostly, Field Report sounds a lot like his old band. When listening to an album like Silent Signs, you can hear the vestiges of Megafaun's telltale banjo twangs and early Bon Iver's lightly brushed drums, but you can also hear how both bands have naturally evolved into autonomous, quite distinct entities; so distinct that Porterfield felt out of place on a recent tour with Megafaun, his former musical collaborators. When Field Report deviates from DeYarmond Edison's retrospectively entry-level folk, however, it's jarring.
Porterfield is a magnificent songwriter, and the years he spent honing these songs to a rich edge shows in this debut album.
