Weyes Blood, Little Wings
Rooted in American and British folk, Weyes Blood pulls and stretches the style at its fringes, like a sweater that's just begun to unravel. Traditional instruments (guitar, piano, drums) are set against electronics and tape effects, collages and the melodic qualities of delay, that bridge an older world of songcraft into the future, creating a synthesis between all the best of the 20th century and those that came before. A song like the melancholy ballad "Bad Magic" possesses infinite beauty in its sadness and how it releases those sentiments, but it's even more beautiful in relief to all the other material on The Innocents. Never once does she repeat herself. Each song is a variant on the styles present in the record, and each is unmistakably her own.

"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
