Rock band Little Man, who’s fronted by Chris Perricelli, continues to be a strong live act and an amazingly diverse recording artist of the Twin Cities. Classic Rock, Garage Rock, Psychedelic Rock – think George Harrison meets Bowie meets Jack White.
From the mind of Chris Perricelli comes this lofty spiritual journey as heard and told through the music of Little Man. Like a small statured mythological being of which the band takes it’s name, these songs act as catalyst to ones own personal journey. “Who am I really?” “What is enlightenment?” Investigating human emotions and attachments with many Zen inspired elements, Original Face will take you to the outskirts of infinity and back, and just then, you might see your true original face. Hear the Bolan-esque boogie and horns on “The Builder”. Nods to Bowie with acoustic rhythms and Ronson-like layered guitars throughout. Nods to both The Kinks and George Harrison’s influence on “Medicinal” and take part in yelling out the modern rock anthems like “Face”.
Two dreams came true on one record for Two Harbors frontman Chris Pavlich, who’s as big an Anglophile rock fan as anyone you’ll ever meet. First, he recruited the graphic designer who created the cover art for some of his all-time favorite albums by Oasis, the Verve and Supergrass. Then, he lined up a date to master the record at Abbey Road Studios in London. Yep, that Abbey Road.
La Crosse, WI trio Porcupine organically forges its singular brand of Rock’n’Roll reminiscent of the late-90s alternative without compromise. Un-yielded by what’s trendy, Casey Virock (guitars/vocals) with Dave Reinders (bass) and Ian Prince (drums) derive some of their inspiration from 70’s classic rock and 60’s British psychedelica, resulting in a Swervedriver meets Queens of The Stone Age type sound.
