The Little League Records bandroster is looking very thin, but they are home to 2 of the most promising bands I heard recently. August Premier was the first to release their stuff and now there's this Chicago foursome with emo driven pop punk rock reminiscent to other Chicago bands as The Lawrence A.

The Little League Records bandroster is looking very thin, but they are home to 2 of the most promising bands I heard recently. August Premier was the first to release their stuff and now there's this Chicago foursome with emo driven pop punk rock reminiscent to other Chicago bands as The Lawrence Arms and Alkaline Trio, maybe just playing a notch faster. This is actually a CDep but playing time is nearly 25 minutes, which other labels (like Fat) would call full-lengths. I know this is becoming a phrase I use often but the melodies are mindsticking, guitarplay is hooky, bass is plunky (does the word "plunky" exist?) and the voice is just plain good. In short, all the ingredients are included for my punk needs without being an innovative disc. The techincal aspects of the creation of the EP speak for a professional sound: it was recorded at Sonic Iguana Studios in Lafayette, Indiana and at Bombshelter Studios in Park Ridge, Illinois and it was recorded, produced and engineered by Mr. Precision (Dan Wleklinski), and mastered by Mass Giorgini. Debuts like this could make bands move from the little into the big league.

i saw these guys live with Antifreeze, Knockout, the somatics, and the crash. at Ryans Ballroom, In Appleton WI the home town of Antifreeze. And they blew everyband out of the water cept antifreeze of course. But i immediatley bought there CD, and havent regretted it since. Fathead is the best lyricaly written song ive ever heard!

Nice guys, while they don't do anything orginal, they do it well.

Yeah, I saw them once and the singer was really sick, and he kept apologizing that he couldn't sing for shit that day, and the vocals still sounded fine. They're a pretty talented original sounding band, I think. They have some songs that are pretty fast, but they have a lot of breakdowns and some long-ass bridges. I didn't care for this cd too much at first, but it grew on me.
