EP Review: Little Big League

Title:  Little Big League (BandCamp)
Artist:  Little Big League (Facebook, BandCamp)

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Little Big Leagues self-titled debut EP is a dreamy indie pop wonderland; its only downfall is that it only has two songs.  “Tokyo Drift” is driven by Michelle Zauner’s beautifully dreamy vocals with fuzzy guitar that is reminiscent of the early ‘90s (think Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Lush).  “St. Johns” is an upbeat indie rock number with a kick reminiscent of Superchunk, Sebadoh, and Guided By Voices. 

Little Big League has put together a great debut EP.  What I really enjoy is the mixture of the early ‘90s fuzz with the mid-‘90s indie rock, but what really makes it all work is Zauner’s vocals.  She is sweet and powerful at the same time (with a hint of viciousness).  Fans of any of the aforementioned bands or the likes of Bratmobile and Bikini Kill should definitely give Little Big League a listen.
