Listening to Field Medic is like sitting in a room with a close friend, a few beers deep, playing hollow-eyed confessionals on a storied acoustic guitar. His latest project, Floral Prince, is so up close and personal, it almost feels as if you’re the only person listening. Released October 2, 2020 via Run for Cover Records, Floral Prince feels less like an album and more like singer-songwriter Kevin Patrick Sullivan’s diary. “Traded my creative whim for a level head and a phantom limb,” he sings on “-h-o-u-s-e-k-e-y-z-,” the fluttering album opener. The fast-paced folk jam sets the tone for the rest of the record, a lot of which is about growing up. Floral Prince provides a glimpse into the mind of an artist coming to terms with his own mortality. Sullivan is no longer the starry-eyed kid “busking in the BART tunnels,” he’s a near-30-year-old “going to bed early, self-diagnosing on WebMD.” Overall, Field Medic maintains his lo-fi charm while pushing his thematic boundaries on Floral Prince, a solid collection of songs from one of folk’s most exciting acts.
