little hurricane – Homewrecker [Album Review]

by Woody on September 1, 2011

In the real world I work in insurance. Rising claims from the summer rain and wind has made life pretty shitty. So when Oz sent over an album called Homewrecker by a band called little hurricane (yes, all lowercase),  I couldn’t help but admire the irony.

This dirty blues duo from San Diego was brought to our attention by Ryan from Muzzle of Bees fame. Ryan’s new job with C3 (the folks that put on Lollapalooza) put him in contact with little hurricane and, lucky for all of us, they were added to the Lolla lineup and agreed to visit us for a HearYa Live Session while in Chicago.

little hurricane are a two-piece that deliver a blues-based sound without pretense. You’ll find a dude named Tone on guitar and lead vocals and a spicy female drummer named C.C on drums and backing vocals.  It’s hard not to draw comparisons to The White Stripes with this formula. They even have a couple of a call and response tunes such as “Crocodile Tears” and the phenomenal closing tune, “Give Em Hell.”

Don’t let the blues-duo comparisons fool you, however. little hurricane is more than capable of standing on their own. Check out the video below. If that doesn’t get your blood boiling, then you might need a defibrillator. The album is available for $5.99 over at Amazon.
