Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Little Big League/Cherry Cola Champions/Wolf Creek/Madarosis

When: Tue., Nov. 19, 9 p.m. 2013

In every sense, Little Big League are the restorationists of the mid-'90s. Their music wails with classic-styled indie rock guitars; gritty, darkened vocals; and splashy drumming. Down to even their name, presumably a reference to the 1994 family film about a child-owner of the Minnesota Twins, they are the product of flannel-clad gloom. Back in August they released their debut LP These Are Good People, a wonderfully recorded album of blurred lines, sustained harmonies and massive walls of sound. Though this is their first album, the band maintains a thoroughly unified sound throughout; they sound like old pros. In their song "Never Have I Ever Walked When the Time Was Right," they seem almost aware of their own nostalgic-based songwriting with lines like "We were good when we were good." Deep-rooted in their nostalgia, Little Big League takes listeners to an old, familiar place, sure to please like Crystal Pepsi or Ecto Cooler. (Stoops)
