Performer Notes
  • Comprising singer and guitarist Rodrigo Amarante (of Los Hermanos), singer Binki Shapiro, and drummer Fabrizo Moretti (of the Strokes), Little Joy creates with their debut a thoroughly enjoyable album of sweet, simple indie pop. The mood is laid-back and bright, with stylistic flashes of reggae, MPB, folk, soul, and soft rock (with no little influence from the Beatles and the Beach Boys), and the whole is satisfying from beginning to end. It invites the listener to open the windows, turn up the stereo, and kick back. And as seemingly breezy and feel-good as LITTLE JOY might be, the songs are surprisingly durable and invite repeated listens.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With Moretti on guitars, drums and backing vocals, the vibe is closing time at the Beachcomber: century pop with Jamaican, Hawaiian and bossa nova flavors."

Spin (p.106) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he debut's barbershop harmonies, Hawaiian strumming, and lovesick melodies transform rock-club jadedness into an aesthetic fit for honeymoons..."

CMJ - "Vocals switch off between Amarante's experienced croons and newcomer Shapiro's wise-beyond-her-years warble, while expertly crafted harmonies shape the deeply textured background."

Billboard (p.29) - "Little Joy play a laidback brand of indie pop....In the studio with producer Noah Georgeson the three traded off instruments, and that evidently established an appealingly freewheeling vibe..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Their debut certainly has an air of simple kicks about it, of lazy, starry Californian nights, of liberation from uptight Manhattan."
