Editorial Reviews

Review

"You know how some singles just have that gorgeous air about them? "September Falls" is like diving into a bath of frothy rasberry vegan milkshake. With a very harmonic melody, this single is so radio-freindly it hurts and so stunning it stops you in your tracks. More please." --Black Velvet Magazine

"Wow. It's quiet, it's delicate, but it still drives like The Stills' best moments and brings to mind Death Cab if Ben Gibbard were more into Sun Volt or the Jayhawks." --Space City Rock

The Little Heroes are the new Promise Ring. It would be cool if they'd play the roof of the Oklahoma University parking garage while they're still little enough, before exploding into full-blown rock arena heroes. Cinematic Americana is the 12-track freshman disc from this all-male twentysomething San Jose guitar band quartet with keys. It's delightful. Bright and up-tempo, the songs are wonderful at high volume. They play heroically. Melody and harmony are often cleverly enhanced with violin and cello. James Lombardo's vocals are superlative, sometimes breathy and always emotive. As they should be, the lyrics are of sweet and sour kisses. The Little Heroes' songs celebrate connecting, coming apart and drawing back together again. You learn ecstasy is accompanied by radio, jukebox and automobile engine serenades. In its over 50 year history, rock n roll's inspiration has largely come from girls. The Little Heroes adhere to this proven formula in "Don't Stop." "Your grey eyes/ your long brown hair/ the way you looked at me when you came in here." The Little Heroes don't care about winning fights. They're lovers not fighters. Many bands aspire to an honorable first album. Few achieve it. Hail America's Little Heroes. Cinematic Americana drops March 20. --The Norman Transcript

I bought this CD after hearing only a few snippets of a few songs. It turned out it was the best CD I've bought in over a year. Most of the songs are very upbeat. It's a great mix of acoustic and electric instruments. I am reminded of Toad the Wet Sprocket and the Gin Blossoms, although The Little Heroes do have their own unique sound.

Magnificent on violin. Vocals, lyrics are up to par. But it is the violin that must be savored.
