New Flaming Hot LA Bands: The Little Ones and The Minor Canon

All this searching for new music really pays off every once in a while. Following high recommendations from Coolfer, Yeti Don't Dance, and the Underrated I decided to take a listen to The Little Ones. The verdict is still out, but now you have a fourth high recommendation that will lead to some good listening.

On April 18th The Little Ones will be releasing their new Sing Sing EP and throwing a party on that same day here in LA. The show is taking place at El Cid on Sunset and will include Graham McRae and our second addition to the list of Flaming Hot LA Bands: the Minor Canon.

After picking up a demo CD at their show with Jose Gonzalez, I certainly wanted to get to know the Minor Canon a lot better. Their stage show was flooded with instruments, and the notes were strung together to create a sound of swelling immensity that would subside at times to leave room for the crooning of singers Paul Larson and Ryan Blake. I couldn't wait to get my hands on their tunes.

This is when music gets exciting again.
