"Mushroom" Hardback Book and 12” Record in a Box by Kyle Field and Greg Olin

Enter into a strange yet oddly familiar world—one that is absurdly like our own, a realm of modern nursery rhymes accompanied by colorful and unique illustrations, all sprung forth from the creative minds of artists Kyle Field and Greg Olin. Best known for their musical projects, Little Wings and Graves, Field and Olin collaborated on MUSHROOM, an audio and visual journey through the ceaseless strangeness of childhood. Here you will find tall tales, stories, and yarns for adults and kids alike, but with an eye for the era of smartphones. These are both lullabies in the age of Bitcoin and fond memories of “Love in the Time of Beepers.”

The book includes an accompanying listen-along soundtrack featuring Field and Olin taking turns reading the poems over original music and atmospheric sounds. Both contribute their distinctive touch to bring these imaginative vignettes to life.
