It’s an age-old problem that somehow persists even in the Google era: A group of musicians settles on a band name, plays many shows and records an album with that moniker, and just as the record is about to come out they find out (oops!) there’s another band with rights to that name.

In the case of Field Trip — already renamed from the more teenage-y Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles a couple of years earlier — the dilemma came up so late in the game that copies of the quartet’s album had been manufactured. Fortunately, there was an easy solution right in front of their faces.

Introducing: Little Fevers, which was supposed to be the title of Field Trip’s album. You can thus probably guess the new title of the record being promoted by the band Friday at the Turf Club with Bones & Beeker and Matt Latterell (9 p.m., $10-$12).

Much of the album was recorded with producer Matt Boynton, who has engineered albums by MGMT and Kurt Vile. It’s quite a sonic leap from the cute, ukulele-bred folk pop of the Velvet Lapelles era, replaced by reverb-heavy electric guitars and ’90s dissonance, but with Michelle’s sweet homespun voice still front and center. With bassist Eamon McClain now off the road with Trampled by Turtles (as their cellist), Little Fevers headed to New York to play the Mercury Lounge last weekend and will continue gigging regularly in coming months.
