“Kimya Dawson straddles the line between precious and profound“.- Rolling Stone
“A veteran of the scrappy anti-folk circuit, with stream of consciousness songs that balance the caustic and the childlike“- NY Times
Kyle Field, professionally known as Little Wings, is a living legend. He is the modern embodiment of the traveling bard and the singing troubadour. Kyle’s discography is vast and impressive, full of tunes that are plucked from the lexicon of great American songwriting. On his latest effort, EXPLAINS, he crafts melodies so haunting and familiar; it’s as if he’s not composing them at all. He is tapping into something greater, acting as a vessel for the collective unconscious that is folk music.
‘’This is an album that is immediately accessible and also unfolds slowly, revealing greater depth with each listen. Kyle’s lyrics are direct yet poetic, funny yet sad. EXPLAINS is a fantastic record that celebrates the enduring spirit of a great artist. Its release on WOODSIST is all too fitting – a label whose very foundation seems based on lasting creative integrity.” – Alex Bleeker
