America is reading our Field Report
A few weeks after Counting Crows' Adam Duritz was singing praises of Milwaukee's Field Report (formerly Conrad Plymouth) all over Twitter, the Milwaukee group is hitting the road for a West Coast and down South tour with Megafaun, and takes a couple tracks national via Spin Magazine.
Releasing an EP on Ryan Mattison's Ten Atoms label in 2010 as Conrad Plymouth, the band finished its full-length in December at Justin Vernon's studio and it's due out in July.
Some more big news is that no less than Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Warren Zevon, The Pixies, Uncle Tupelo) has also become smitten by Field Report and offered to mix the record, which he did last month.
A slew of SXSW lovin' followed earlier this month.
While you await the record, you can hear two tracks – "Fergus Falls" and "I Am Not Waiting Anymore" – on Spin.com.
In case you find yourself out and about in the next couple weeks, here are the band's upcoming dates – with Megafaun:
03/30/12 - Seattle, WA @ Tractor Tavern
03/31/12 - Portland, OR @ Doug Fir
