Little Wings


Sometimes you can have a record for a while and like it, but not love it and suddenly, one day it suddenly clicks and you "get it". This happened once upon a time for me with Jeff Buckley's "Grace" and this has just happened again with Little Wings' "Soft Pow'r" - not to compare the two records in any other way.

Little Wings is the musical baby of Kyle Field, who was once bassist and singer in the band Rodriguez with M. Ward.

Field has released released six albums under the Little Wings moniker. He has also released one of my favorite records of 2008 under the name Be Gulls, played with The Microphones, and makes fantastic drawings.

Loose, laid back, warm and raw, Field's music is held together by it's core which is solid song-craft that reveals itself as the reward for close attention and repeat listens.
