Field Report is a new band created by Chris Porterfield, formerly of Bon Iver.

Evergreen is a pretty weighty tune. Haunting and quite beautiful.

“We did a lot in the name of preservation
holding hearts in hooks for hands after the accident”

Check out Field Report on the band’s Website, where you can learn upcoming US and Canadian tour dates and link to buy the music.

Cheers!
