sample the album:
"Brooklyn quartet Little Women formed two years ago to create music that blurs the line between structure and spontaneity. The group's sound distilled from a broad range of influences that stretch from classic Chicago free jazz thru pop music, punk rock, math metal, and harsh noise.
Little Women never stop pushing into new sonic territory: splitting overtones to create ghost notes, violently disassembling their instruments onstage, and attacking written and improvised material with equal ferocity. During performances band members often experience side-effects more commonly associated with prescription drugs such as nausea, dizziness, and internal bleeding.
Little Women stomp all over genres, creating some of the most adventurous, in-the-moment, wrenchingly honest music of their generation. "Teeth" is 20 minute pieces, recorded in one long, single take, covering an impreesive range of sound, and is an intense and dynamic presentation of what they are doing as a band.
Members of Little Women have recorded and/or performed with some of the top names in jazz/improvised music such as: Anthony Braxton, Steve Lacy, Mark Dresser, Jim Black, Trevor Dunn, Dave Liebman, Joe Lovano, George Garzone, Chad Hugo (The Neptunes), Gerry Hemingway, Joe Morris, Matt Wilson, Michael Formanek, Mat Maneri, and Dave Koz. Members of Little Women also play in bands such as Zs, Extra Life, Cutter, Period, Archaeopteryx."-Gilgongo
