Field Report is the project of Chris Porterfield, who played in DeYarmond Edison with Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and the members of Megafaun. Their music is lyric-centric and extremely emotional, driven by seemingly effortless playing and Porterfield’s honest vocals. A couple months back, when the New York City air was still sticky and smelled of sweet garbage, we met with Field Report (@_fieldreport) to record a Buzzsession at the Burnside Bar in Brooklyn. It was a gorgeous day so we were able to shoot the two songs in the wood fenced-in rustic back terrace, which complimented the group’s folksy sound perfectly. Watch both videos and download the Buzzsession versions of the songs for free below using the Soundcloud player.
‘Buzzsessions’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we travel with a different band to a different part of New York City and record sometimes-intimate/sometimes-wild versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.
