Little Wings aka Kyle Field is a master of the fragile song. His voice exists in a perpetual breaking point, at once a weighty baritone and a barely there sigh. It’s maybe something that grows on you instead of immediately hitting you in the face with its greatness. Field’s albums are non-events, but they become part of your life, embedding themselves deep in your memory. “Sandy Babe,” the first single from LAST which is out this February, sounds buried and old, a lost message from the early ’60s that was actually written recently. It’s as much a love song as it is a song of loss and pain.
