 New Music: Field Report   Chico the American

Field Report, the anagram of Eau Claire, WI’s Chris Porterfield, has unveiled yet another track from his forthcoming self-titled debut. Like “Fergus Falls” and “Taking Alcatraz” before it, the slight guitars of ”Chico the American” fade in and out of judicious glockenspiel, elegantly arranged in stark contrast to lyrics like “pound that pus-y, bloody cyst off with a weather-treated two by four.” Just another day in the woods of Wisconsin.

Field Report the album arrives September 11th via Partisan Records. In support of the release , Field Report the musician has announced upcoming tour dates with Counting Crows, Aimee Mann, and Melissa Ferrick. Find the full schedule below.
