SeaweeedSway Showcase w/ Little Wings, Aaron Novik's Thorny Brocky, & NoHow On
Little Wings was formed in San Luis Obisbo, CA, and the music of Little Wings carries the landscape of its place of origin like clouds carry water vapor, to release it in a myriad of forms over a changing landscape. Little wings is a project that revolves around frontman and songwriter Kyle Field, sometimes with drummer Tim Bluhm, keyboardist/fiddle Alexi Glickman, guitar players Lee Baggett and Brett Simundson and newcomer Tom Heyman on pedal steel. His Debut Album, The Wonder City, was released in 1998 by Walking Records, and later in 2000 by Knw-Yr-Own. It has been called "a dreamy, balladic tribute to the surreal aspects of the contemporary Californian landscape." Moving to Portland, Little Wings followed up this first release with The Wonder City and Wonderue to complete their Wonder Trilogy, which consists of three albums released on K and Knw-Yr-Own Records.2002 saw the release of light green leaves (K) and In 2003 Little Wings released Harvest Joy/Octember Sketches (invisible city) a split CD only release with longtime friend and collaborator,Lee Baggett., followed by Magic Wand/Magic Wood in 2004 and Grow (K) in 2005. He released Soft Pow'r in 2007 on the band's own (RAD) imprint. Little Wings is now based out of the Bay Area and has played with the likes of Grandaddy, Lee Baggett, and Devendra Banhart,Calvin Johnson,Daniel Johnston,Michael Hurley, and is also a talented visual artist. A book of his drawings was published by the label Ahornfelder. (Drawing on this page is by Kyle)
Aaron Novik's THORNY BROCKY!
Thorny Brocky is:
Aaron Novik- bass clarinet and compositions
Dina Maccabee- violin
Melody Ferris- vocals
Lisa Mezzacappa- bass
Marie Abe- accordion
Jami Moore- drums
Kasey Knudsen- alto sax
Thorny Brocky is a seamless blend of folk world indie jazz pop with an experimental yet accessible slant. jewish melodies hang over indian rhythms; lyrics written by homeless schizophrenics and the developmentally disabled; heavy metal drum beats driving a brazilian choro chord progression; music from a parallel universe!
Architects of a unique sound they describe as Garage Folk, the members of Nohow On draw upon a diverse range of traditional and contemporary influences, from Sacred Harp singing and West African griot music to Bob Dylan and Neutral Milk Hotel. The band juggles an eclectic array of instruments and vocal parts in its live show, weaving world-weary lyrics around sweet melodies, forceful harmonies and unorthodox arrangements.
