Formed on the west coast of California, Kyle Field's group Little Wings has seen endless revisions in lineup, approach and endeavor since 1998. Lauded by acts such as Feist, Real Estate and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy for being an important pillar, Little Wings low key presence has stood the test of time by embracing the timelessness of the human spirit and the struggle to maintain balance and certainty in an uncertain world. The catalogue continues to grow and ripen, and these songs are foundational in the blueprint of this ongoing institution.
"Discover Worlds Of Wonder" is the second Little Wings album in the catalog and produced the classic songs "Sand Canyon" and "The Shredder" which set a template for the storytelling that would become signature in the Ouvre. Themes of cathartic isolation and redemption are at the backbone here as well as song buy song experimentation, dipping into subtle genre switching while maintaining a steady flow from song to song. Recorded on the eve of the Little Wings K Records years, one can hear the old Portland,OR sound through the lens of Adam Selzer's esteemed andlong running (RIP) Type Foundry Studio, a 16 track analog institution. This is the first fully realized "band" recording from the group and serves as a seminal album in the 20 plus year spanning career of one of North America's esteemed wordsmiths.
