LA four-piece Little Galaxies stays musically in tune with their name by dropping soft, melodic ballads that contain whirlwinds of instrumental arrangements that seem neither forced or overbearing; on the contrary, their sound carries a harmonious balance of pop and alt-rock with that LA edge. Their debut album Patterns displays this best, crystallizing the pop sensibilities of the current wave of alt-rock, while separating themselves from their dream pop contemporaries. Through headphones, Little Galaxies' music, upheld by singer Jeanna Fournier's smoky vocals, can blow you away, so just imagine what it can do during a live set. Get swept up in Little Galaxies' show tonight at The Slidebar, along with Wetwood Smokes and The Great Late.
