Little Big League
"Never Have I Ever Walked Away When The Time Was Right" - Music Video
"Above all, the music Aaron Maine creates as the principal songwriter of Porches. sounds dirty. Not in an exploitative way, and not because he tags it on Soundcloud as both "booty clap" and "sad pop." But more in the sense that the characters in his songs sound like they haven't showered yet today-- either because they're hungover, depressed or simply forgot to pay their water bill... It's total tears-in-your-beer stuff, but when its rumpled stagger gives way to a surprisingly warm chorus, it's time to order another round." - Pitchfork, Review of "Franklin The Flirt" off of "Slow Dance In The Cosmos" by Porches.
"If it sounds a little like mid-1990s Pac-NW indie, a little like late-'90s midwest emo, and a little like early-'00s pop-punk, chances are it's coming from Philadelphia in 2013. Such is the case with Little Big League. - Pitchfork, Review of "My Very Own You" off of "These Are Good People" by Little Big League
" 'These Are Good People' needs its less stressed, easier-going parts to make it work as a whole, and while they're comparative lulls amid the crushing weight of when Little Big League are cathartically expressing how desire can be a handicap, it makes for a well rounded and occasionally outright breath-taking affair. - Punknews.org, Review of "These Are Good People" by Little Big League
