ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
* "Mary Battiata's 2001 debut as Little Pink, CUL-DE-SAC COWGIRL, was on my very short list of favorite discs that I reviewed in 2002. She has another full-length CD in the works, but keeps her hand in with this four-song acoustic EP. On all four tracks, she plays rhythm guitar and is accompanied by just one other musician. Three songs were recorded live, the fourth in the studio with a near-live sound. If this singer-songwriter has a trademark, it's the sound of a broken heart being dissected with a steely gaze and a steady hand. She also draws on a full bag of references without freighting her songs with too much art.
"My favorite ... is 'Bumblebee,' a slow, dreamy, waltz-time song about the end of a love affair in which she declares, 'We're always lonesome in crowds of our kind.' The refrain of 'Gone Over' delightfully meshes Sixties pop with old-time gospel. ... Little Pink's music is poignant but bracing. ... 12 BIRDS whets the appetite for more to come." - Gary Whitehouse, Greenman Review

* "An intriguing blend of airness and attitude ... " - Amplifier

* "Treads the same ground as the sparsely beautiful Calexico ..." - Journal Newspapers
