Little Foot Long Foot – Harsh Words

The Damsel. Her Woodcutter. Only he could tame her...
Equal parts bluesy rock ‘n roll and cleverly conscious lyricism, Little Foot Long Foot’s May 26th release of Harsh Words is a comprehensive testament to moral tribulation. An album insert recounts the tale of a damsel torn between two loves, while song titles including ‘King Hipster,’ ‘Marriage Ain’t A Promise,’ and ‘Isolation Blues’ provide both visual and emotional depictions of adversity at it’s finest.

Following the release of their EP Just About Broke Joan Smith (vocals, guitar, organ) and Isaac Klein (drums) gained success on college radio, multiple best of 2008 lists, all while building their quickly growing fan-base.

“Joan Smith’s voice will knock you on your ass if you’re not ready for it” - Midnight Poutine

Recorded at Chemical Sound Studio (Tokyo Police Club, Death From Above 1979), Harsh Words stays true to Little Foot Long Foot’s sound. Comparisons have been drawn to Neko Case mixed with L7, Patsy Cline meets The Gun Club, The Gossip, and yeah...The Black Keys.

“…the combination of Joan Smith’s deadly vocals with Isaac Klein’s tight snare rolls results in seven songs of passionate blues-rock. Smith wails through Marriage Ain’t a Promise like it’s an aural punch in the face, and Ego Song will urge you to drive quicker than you probably should.” – National Post (Just About Broke EP)
