The Little Ones – Going for Adds

Last week we sent you The Little Ones highly anticipated sophomore full-length, The Dawn Sang Along.  This week that album is going for Adds!

KCRW is featuring a stream of the release in this week’s Album Preview; so if you haven’t checked it out yet, click here.

The group’s new album The Dawn Sang Along is powered by sun-crisped energy, a warm blast of rock songs that lean toward 1960s international pop, sampling from wherever Pan Am flew: from West African guitar strums to Caribbean beats to Brazilian bossa nova cool.  It all kicks off with the infectious “Argonauts“. The song provides a slice of twee with Pet Sounds-esque harmonies and sprinkles of electronica.  A sea of warm guitar washes under a base of dancing synths: a perfect introduction to the spirit of The Dawn Sang Along. It’s music for credits of a teen adventure film, a heroic end to epic treasure hunts and bicycle-ridden debauchery.  “Forro” has a laid back tone & breezy chorus while “Shake Your Sign” alternates between a rambunctious pogo-beat & dub, low-end friendly verses.

The album was recorded between day jobs with legend Dave Newton, a storied producer and founding member of The Mighty LemondropsThe Dawn Sang Along is a celebration of the DIY spirit.

Check out the album and consider it for your Adds this week!
