Where: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Why You Need to Listen: At one point in his career it was important to mention that Chris Porterfield used to be in a band with Justin Vernon a.k.a. Bon Iver. But now that people are starting to catch on to his new outfit, Field Report, soon Porterfield will never need to mention his famous friends again. Field Report crafts beautifully lyrical songs packed with poetic sentiments, with a starkly sad quiet country sound. It’s music to listen to on a midnight drive. Field Report’s debut album comes out in September.
For Fans of: Wye Oak, The Civil Wars, Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska”
