Well, the holiday excitement is mostly over (some of you will still be celebrating Twelfth Night, and the Chinese still have the New Year to look forward to) … the new Gregorian year is here, and it’s looking interminable. So, to boost spirits for all those who are gong back to work today, a little pop. Get it — little? Ba dum ching.
The Little Ones came onto my radar and fell off it again back in September. But somehow last week their song “Cha Cha Cha,” a chipper little number, earwormed into my brain. I couldn’t remember what song it was, only that the chorus went “la la la …,” which is a very bad sign if you want to find an anonymous song. So yesterday I was sitting at my computer and “The Little Ones!” I said to myself. The Little Ones are a local LA band, and they have released an EP called “Sing Song.” Their artwork is cute, their blog is even cuter, and the music is catchy — like, evil catchy. It reminds me very much of the fun, handclappy, viral pop from The Format.
If you’re sitting at your desk wondering why the snow won’t stop — it was romantic at first, but geez — and why your inbox is so full of stuff that other people could do, well I can’t solve that problem for you. And I can’t fix the fax machine, but I can pep you up a bit. C’mon! Pop was made for January.
