Little Legend

“These guys bring it, and they do it in a monstrously grotesque blend of styles.  It’s as though a gang of 50’s greasers crashed into a 90’s grunge band on the side of a lonely road.” –Dan Walkner, Dane101

The debut self-titled EP from Madison’s own Little Legend (featuring True Endeavors’ Joe Copeland) is now streaming here, prior to its April 24 release. The band have been getting rave reviews all over the indie circuit, including blogs like You Ain’t No Picasso, and My Old Kentucky Blog,
