Field Report Finds Hope and Sobriety on Marigolden

Album cover for Marigolden, out Oct. 7 on Partisan Records.

Christopher Porterfield of Field Report stopped by WUWM@Nite to chat with Trapper Schoepp about the release of his new album, Marigolden.

Porterfield likens his songwriting craft to that of a fashion designer. “It’s not a pair of jeans that’s going to look good on everybody but you got to try it on and figure out if it does look good on you,” he says. “It’s not for the masses.”

Porterfield discussed Marigolden’s diverse sound, his newfound sobriety, and why Field Report is not a bar band.

The zany and talented four-member boy band The Fatty Acids are about to study-up on their Wayne's World lines - as they're about to go on tour, it's a necessity.  When asked what kind of reception they receive far outside of Wisconsin, they say people typically quote the classic Wayne's World "Milwaukee: The Good Land" scene with Alice Cooper. Guitarist Matt Pappas says, "If you don't know those lines, people are looking at you like, 'What?

       When a birthday party turned into an impromptu recording session, Jack Tell and Jordan Maye decided to start playing banjo and mandolin together. Soon Alex Heaton joined up, and before they knew it, they were a band.

Jordan Maye says that as a joke,  they tried to think up pretty much the worst band name possible: Lousy Trouts. Founded in a spirit of fun and experimentation, the name seemed to fit, so it stuck.
