Little Hurricane Playing Under the Same Sun Same Moon

 

Out of California, the Duo Little Hurricane, are wielding forceful roots fueled storm on their third studio album and first on Mascot Label Group.  The twelve tracks weave through tones and textures as we explore the sounds they create under the Same Sun Same Moon. The whole album is impactive strong driving percussive tones and vocals that embrace the lyrics with passion, yearning and sensitivity.

Little Hurricane are a  husband and wife duo, have an innate understanding as they deliver ten tracks of rock, that is edgy, alternative and root deep in the foundations of popular music. Anthony ‘Tone’ Catalano is the front-man adding guitar tones and vocals that can growl and then flip into seductive mode; with Celeste C.C, Spina on drums and backing vocals. They are a team that creates a textural and beguiling landscape on every number from the title song Same Sun, Same Moon that opens the album through to the closing number Moon’s Gone Cold.

Bad Business may be the title of the second track, there is nothing bad about Little Hurricane’s business of producing an alternative sound. Bad Business has a grungy edge, with whispers of dirty blues. The mood changes with OTL with an anthem feel that has an accessible sound despite having no guitar! This should be getting radio play across the stations it is so atmospheric, an ear-worm of a number.  The blues foundations of the duo are heard on tracks across the album, this is a roots alternative who owes its form to blues but certainly not dictated by traditional boundaries.

As we walk to Mt. Senorita with Little Hurricane the album takes a hill country feel and the interest is maintained in a narrative driven number delivered by Tone; the drumming once again forming an atmospheric backdrop of percussive energy. With only three tracks left, another branch of roots is captured with shadows of reggae beat underneath the almost pop delivery of the vocals, this is a catch party good time tune as they sing You Remind Me. With the vocals harmonizing we have a gentle melody and words about being mean and hurtful; with gentle guitar licks combining with drums with a sharpened edge.

The album has a happy feel and the music is very good, what you want to listen to with its compelling melodic drive and lyrics that have a sense of purpose without a message. A winning combo from Little Hurricane. No need to catergorise good music, just sit back, listen and let the waves of notes cascade over you and relax. Little Hurricane Playing Under the Same Sun Same Moon Same Moon  cuts across genres with the music rooted in the past delivered in the now.

Little Hurricanethe San Diego dirty-blues duo of front man Anthony “Tone” Catalano and drummer Celeste “C.C.” Spina are gearing up for the release of their third full-length studio album Same Sun Same Moon on April 14, on their new home Mascot Records

https://www.mascotlabelgroup.com

Their story began in San Diego, where Little Hurricane formed. Having recently resumed playing drums after an eight-year hiatus, CC placed a musicians-wanted ad on Craigslist. Among the myriad of respondents was Tone, a studio engineer who’d worked with artists ranging from John Paul Jones to Gwen Stefani. The two musicians were neighbours who had never met, and bonded over mutual interests including the blues, unusual and vintage gear, and their individual experiences playing in high school jazz bands. A year later, Little Hurricane won three San Diego Music Awards, including Album of the Year for 2011 debut Homewrecker. Little Hurricane’s explosive live show soon landed them slots at major festivals including Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, and garnered media attention from outlets including Rolling Stone, which profiled them in an extensive behind-the-scenes piece at SXSW 2012.

The evolution of Little Hurricane is especially evident on the album’s first single “OTL”, a love song woven from understated keyboards and intertwined vocals. Married in summer 2016, the creative partners elected to openly share their happiness with listeners for the first time.
