Noisy guitars, vocals sounding like they were recorded through a tin can, pulsating drums, and an absolute ability to not take yourself too seriously. This might be the perfect recipe for some garage rock, and Petite League is looking to serve up some of their own homespun garage brew.
The band is fronted by the acoustically inclined singer-songwriter Lorenzo Cook, aka Spark Alaska. He's recruited some of his musician friends to get together and help him make a distortion-infused rhythmical racket under the name Petite League.
Their track "Leaf Surfer" finds the band searching for their inner The Strokes as they blaze through overdrive-fueled power chords taken straight out of the garage. Cook muses over the beauty of having some fun with someone completely different from yourself, yet still being comfortable enough to "practice karate in your backyard."
Excuse me while I make my way to my own backyard to practice my Daniel Russo-inspired Karate Kid moves with a little Petite League playing in the background. You can score your own copy care of Mermaid Avenue Records right here.
