Little Wings is the project of Kyle Field, a living legend among the inner workings of those in-the-know. He is debuting a new video for “Why Me?,” one of songs off his new album People. The video is a collaboration with Little Wings and Perpetual Doom. As a celebrated musician and painter for a mystic “outsider” style of art, Kyle infuses a magical and surreal quality to everything he touches.
Songs tilt this way and that in both mood and timbre. Yet, whether introspective, cheeky or joyous there is the sense that all of these tunes boil down to a simple search for balance. Even from the cheap seats you’ll gasp and sigh as Kyle’s hot-shot band plays him through his poetic acrobatics. A kind of lyrical high-wire act plays out here in quirky, pastel, miniature – an insightful flea-circus of song. The recordings are bright and saturated, clean and close. People delivers an altogether new form of album alchemy, while clearly building upon, and expanding, the expressive body of work that is Little Wings.
See him next in Kittery, ME @ Buoy Gallery on September 26th.
