Our album spotlight this week is Field Report's sophomore release - Marigolden. Field Report uses this record as an opportunity to mix, with expertise, an alternative rock sound with just a tinge of folk/country. Here's the lead singer, Chris Porterfield's, interesting account of how they landed on the name for the album and title track - “So this song was written while we were making the record. The word ‘marigolden’ showed up while I was doing some writing in studio B while the guys were working. I understand it to refer to a state of sharing characteristics of a marigold, which is a brutish flower found in beds everywhere that smells bad and dies off every year. If you want it back, you have to dig it up now and plant it again later. And it’s a play on being ‘golden,’ which is not that at all. So this whole story came out of that... Here’s a few jumping off points: Jane Harmony (character in the song’s lyrics) is a variety of marigold! The song refers to cottage industry of post self circumcision reconstruction, and the general silliness of male sexuality! Maybe Jane doesn’t exist!” So while providing interesting lyrics and thought points, Marigolden still remains much more than that - an album that satisfies the listener with every track.
