Led by Colin Dieden (the Mowgli’s), Little Hurt’s super-charged, darkly infectious songs brim with a crackling electrical energy, especially when Dieden’s close-miked rants team up with the band’s gang-chant backup vocals for a singalong attack that thoroughly drives home each tune’s chorus. The biographical “Messed Up” is instantly memorable, while the optimistic, party-spirited “Alaska” details the doomed protagonist’s next bad life decision. “My Head Hurts,” with its powerhouse chorus, could be a festival favorite. It’s exciting to hear a band’s material so aptly presented, with a clean, yet daring production touch that makes room for electro-distortion along with the guitars.
