Philly’s Little Big League got a sweet Pitchfork writeup today, premiering their latest, a jagged rocker called “Year of the Sunhouse” that you can listen to below. The song, from a forthcoming split single with Ovlov, got a gritty tone and spastic punk beat, and P4K writer Ian Cohen reads it as a firsthand account from an artist – this specific artist, but probably also representative of countless like them – that live and die by DIY culture and wouldn’t have it any other way. Among the lyrics Cohen cites: “They ask are you still playing basement shows with the band. Doing the music thing? Well yes I fucking am!” It’s an awesome moment of the song, a defiant personal perspective from songwriter Michelle Zauner (who we’ve long known was great at introspective stream-of-consciousness lyrics) that says this is what we are, this is what we do and I don’t care if it fits into your mold of what’s normal or right. Listen below and catch Little Big League May 14th when they kick off tour at The Barbary.
