lil onezPICK OF THE WEEK: Little Ones @ Spaceland

A lot of folks have a hard time describing the Little Ones’ sound. I think they sum it up perfectly themselves: tiki shacks, lobster, thought bubbles, winks, juggling, laughter, games of laser tag, chocolate, burritos and smiles. Although I’m fairly certain they accidentally added a comma between chocolate and burritos. If you missed them last week you have three chances to catch this local act at their free Spaceland residency every Monday in August.

There is an unhinged, maniacal desire to cross on over into the cosmos on Comets on Fire’s (frankly) totally awesome new record. – Filter
