Tiny Little Blackouts / Press

"They're from San Francisco and they're adding beautifully disquieting touches to slick indie guitar slow burn on their debut album, "Idea Of Alice"."

Unpeeled

“Tiny Little Blackouts is what indie musicians often strive for and fail at, which has turned the genre into a cliché: delightful music with just the right amount of irony. Idea of Alice, the first album released by the band, is a fantastic, eight-song journey into the right kind of indie rock. The music is solid, the lyrics are intelligent, and the vocals are atmospheric without sounding overdone or like an impersonation. The music is almost adorable. With hazy, well blended guitar parts, soft drums, and a hint of bells (or maybe xylophones), it seems perfectly in sync with Ember's vocals: it's delicate, without being too sad, and happy without being annoying. They have a balance of sadness that must have come from listening to Elliott Smith which sets them apart from bands that try too hard, but they have an upbeat, adventurous air about them, too. Idea of Alice is one of the most exciting releases I've heard from a new band in a while.”

“This is very much a shoegazer meets Dream pop sound that Tiny Little Blackout create. The lush soft but very well sung female vocal with the droney, lazy, bluesy fuzzed out guitars a warm deep bass line and very jazz meets post rock drumming is whats going on. Think bands like Belly, Curve, The Gathering and The Cardigans is all the bands that really come to mind here. Tiny Little Blackouts have a very 60's Pop feeling to the over all sound to what there creating . I'm really impressed by what I'm hearing. The production is monstrous as well " Idea of Alice" as that Phil Spector production to it...Tiny Little Blackouts are making me fall in love with pop music for the 1st time in years. As I go through this review you know who this band most sounds like to me is when the band LOW has female vocals going on. I finally got to pinpoint the sound I was hearing. Fantastic work here.”

They've definitely done their job – you'll love it.”
