Before Justin Vernon took Bon Iver into the next stratosphere, he was in a North Carolina by way of Wisconsin band called DeYarmond Edison. After putting out two full lengths and an EP, DeYarmond Edison split with Vernon forming Bon Iver, and three of the other members forming the “freak folk” band Megafaun.
Now, a third faction from DeYarmond Edison has formed, with former member Chris Porterfield forming the new outfit Field Report. While Megafaun seems to have very little in common with Bon Iver save for the aforementioned affiliation – Field Report seems to fit right in with the sound many of us have come to know and love.
Field Report’s as of yet untitled debut isn’t due til July, but we have 2 really good previews streaming below to help us get excited about the new album. Check out “Fergus Falls” and “I am Not Waiting Anymore” below.
