Field Report Making Bon Iver-Aided Debut in September

Field Report Making Bon Iver-Aided Debut in September

Field Report will showcase its findings with its self-titled debut on Sept. 11.

The new project's the latest from musician Chris Porterfield, who formerly played in DeYarmond Edison with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and members of Megafaun. When it came time to record "Field Report," due for release on Partisan Records, Porterfield turned to Vernon's Eau Claire studio.

"He invited us to use his space," Porterfield said in a release. "We were particularly interested in recording at his studio [April Base] because of the large live room. We wanted to capture the sound of a band in a moment."

The up-and-coming act's summer dates will include shows with veterans such as Emmylou Harris and Counting Crows, with the latter act a vocal supporter of the band.

"It is undeniable when you listen to Field Report. This is just great music," Counting Crows' Adam Duritz told Rolling Stone.
