You can now premiere the “My Very Own You” video from Philadelphia, PA’sLittle Big League as well as a track review for the song on Pitchfork. The video was shot by Out Of Town Films from Philly. The song comes from the band’s debut LP, These Are Good People, released on Tiny Engines earlier this month.
The 1st pressing of These Are Good People 12″ vinyl (TE123) is limited to 500 pressed on four colorways (105 Pink Carnation / 120 Icy Green / 130 Olympian Blue / 145 White). Also, Little Big League’s debut 7″ single is available from Tiny Engines as well.
The band performed a Daytrotter session that was posted recently. Also, view live videos for “Tokyo Drift” as well as “Never Have I Ever Walked Away When The Time Was Right.”
In the Fall of 2011, Michelle Zauner and Kevin O’Halloran (previously of Post Post) joined forces with Ian Dykstra (Titus Andronicus) and Deven Craige (Strand of Oaks) to form Little Big League. Shortly thereafter the band recorded their debut 7″. Released in April of 2012, the two songs offered a glimpse into the band’s promising future, which after months of writing and playing live took solid form in their debut LP These Are Good People.
The band’s debt to 90s indie guitar rock is respectfully paid while Zauner’s gorgeously unique vocal stylings and striking lyrical imagery add to the album’s dark atmosphere. There is a level of tension and impending danger built, both lyrically and musically, that revels in the vulnerability of us all. These Are Good People is an album about coming of age, loss, and the overwhelming acceptance of reality over a failed romanticism. Due out this Summer on Tiny Engines, the album is a stunning indie rock debut from the Philadelphia quartet.
Little Big League will be playing the Tiny Engines Showcase (w/ Restorations, Dikembe, Signals Midwest, Direct Effect) in Orlando on October 30th and then The Fest in Gainesville, FL. More tour dates to come!
