Review: Little Wings, ‘Last’

Review: Little Wings, ‘Last’: Aidin Vaziri | Little Wings’ Kyle Field surfs, paints, travels, drifts aimlessly and, when the mood strikes, makes music. “Last,” which may or may not be his last album, was recorded in fits and starts, as the tousled-haired songwriter grappled with depression and inspiration. When the tears were all dry, he abandoned his home in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset District and moved to Los Angeles. But escape seems more elusive: “I’ve never wanted to see me again/ There’s nowhere I can go where I won’t be,” he pleads on “Wide Daylight.” From the cosmic “Waited on the Door” to the low-key “Sandy Babe,” which spill over with raw emotion and impossibly sweet melodies, the homespun music has a woozy, out-of-tune air – much like a warped Harry Nilsson record dug out of the sand.
