Field Report - FUV Live at Rockwood Music Hall - 2014

by Russ Borris

Chris Porterfield's latest album as Field Report is beautifully written and produced, filled with warmth and subtlety. Marigolden is one of my favorite records of the year and it's our New Dig this week, so I was psyched to hear the new songs in live performance. Chris brought the new incarnation of Field Report to Rockwood Music Hall in an exclusive show for FUV Marquee Members. Many didn't know much about the band going into the show, but clearly left as new fans. During the show, Chris talked about his changed relationship with alcohol, the nuances of writing and recording and some of his inspiration surrounding Marigolden.

This week's musical preview isn't tied to one of the show's seven birthdays. It comes from the forthcoming "Big Broadcast" Volume 10, which features a cover by a generous friend of the show, Kim Deitch. "Heartaches" was a hit in two decades. The "big" version by Ted Weems & His Orchestra was recorded in 1933, but not a huge success until, the story goes, a North Carolina deejay started playing it nightly in early 1947. Probably not coincidentally, a crime drama, "Heartaches," was released in June 1947.
