Little City formed in 2009 and since then have released spurts of music that have been among the best folk-based to come out of this city. Their latest effort is the 7" single "Sperry" and it's b-side "Capt. Kendall" (out Jan. 24th).
The 12-member band, which includes part-time members from The Wooden Sky and Ohbijou, are much more methodical than we've heard on the lead track. The song has a tension that shows Little City are unafraid of venturing into new territory. More typical is the freewheeling flipside "Capt. Kendall". It's a rip-roaring singalong that evokes, unsurprisingly from the title, Maritime imagery.
As a music fan I wish they'd stop teasing us and give us a full length album already.
Little City play a 7" release show at 918 Bathurst on January 21st.
