“Dear Friends, due to circumstances beyond our control and the powers that be we changed our band name, crazy we know. But we are just crazy enough to pull it off, so here’s to Little Fevers formerly known as Field Trip.”
Little Fevers is a sweet and crunchy amalgamation of pop rock that has formed, much like a pearl, over many years around a tiny grain of sand. Little Fevers emerged in 2013, floating up out of the ocean to walk around on land. Comprised of two guys and two girls who, having operated as longtime collaborators, have honed their craft traveling the country together for several years. The group is a project curated by the eyes and ears of those that sit on the same little raft, letting the sun wash over them as they paddle and splash to their next port of call.
BONES & BEEKER
Wax Poetics Records’ new Minneapolis-based duo Bones & Beeker is a band that combines hip-hop-production sensibilities with classic, harmony-focused singer-songwriter musicianship. Anthony Newes (vocals, guitar, keys, and other sounds) and Brendan Kelly (production, drum programming, keys, glockenspiel, kalimba)—known in hip-hop circles as BK-One—were introduced through their work with the developmentally disabled. Their first meeting was a five-minute conversation about Tom Waits. Their second was at a client’s deathbed.
Songwriter from Minnesota.
