The Milwaukee musicians first drew attention back in 2012, when the unsigned group performed at the South by Southwest festival. Things took off later that year with the release of their self-titled debut album. The band’s third full-length album, “Summertime Songs” comes out next month. Field Report, fronted by Chris Porterfield (a former member of Justin Vernon’s DeYarmond Edison), released their self-titled debut album in 2012 and Marigolden in 2014.


Wisconsin-based group Field Report will release their new album Summertime Songs on March 23rd via Verve Forecast, and here is the album track “Blind Spot,” a song about realizing our connection to those around us. ‘Blind Spot’ is about being reminded that we don’t live in a vacuum,” the band says. “Self-destruction doesn’t just destroy ourselves. There are a lot of open spaces that we think are empty only to realize that we aren’t alone. And that our self-focus can take others out in the process.”

Blind Spot is about being surprised to discover that other people are suffering the consequences of our actions too, and how naive it is that it can us take so long to realize that.
