Mr. Little Jeans [UPDATED]

I mentioned Mr. Little Jeans a while back whilst I was raving about Neon Gold Records. The first two songs I heard were ‘Angel’, which I immediately fell in love with, and ‘Faking Gold’, which I also liked, but feared was too similar to ‘Angel’. Would Mr. Little Jeans turn out to be a one trick pony? A one hit wonder before she’s even a hit?
Fear not. I visited her MySpace page today and have had the tracks on repeat ALL DAY. The similarities between ‘Angel’ and ‘Faking Gold’ aren’t debatable, they stick to the rock pop formula – uptempo lighthearted songs which appeal to the part of you that really enjoys barbeques in the sun and dancing around barefoot. ‘Demolition Man’ fits into this category as well. However, ‘Stones in the Attic’, and my favourite, ‘Demolition’ show there is something more to Mr. Little Jeans. ‘Demolition’ carries on the energy found in the other tracks, but with a killer (and addictive) beat, layered vocals, and a hook that will have you singing after the first play. ‘Stones in the Attic’ on the other hand, is a more downbeat number, with the focus more on vocals and harmonies. A lovely track!! Check all of these out at Mr. Little Jean’s MySpace.
Neon Gold are releasing her first single, the ‘Angel EP’, today released her first single, the ‘Angel EP’ on June 7th. They’re sticking with their ‘7″ vinyl single limited to 300 copies’ format (which I love by the way), so if you want one head to the Pure Groove store now to get your copy (the Neon Gold store if you’re in the US).
[UPDATE] Neon Gold are continuing to be wonderful and are giving you Mr. Little Jeans’ version of Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ for free. Read their original post about the track here, and download the track below.
