Little City is a Toronto-based band that has just recently released a five song EP entitled The Going and the Gone. Guitarist and mandolin player Jordan Axani describes the sextet as a folk rock band and reveals that he's heard comparisons to Fleetwood Mac meets Arcade Fire, but to me it sounds like Joni Mitchell hangs out with Old 97's, enjoys a beverage with Cowboy Junkies, then turns into a butterfly. Produced by Lawrence Currie (Sloan, Hey Rosetta, Wintersleep), Little City ain't afraid to use banjo, accordion, or french horn to bolster their sweet sound. And their cover art (above) is as beautiful, lush and detailed as the music.
