"WVAU Heavy Rotation Review"

If any of you are familiar with the early 2000’s cartoon Courage the Cowardly Dog, you would understand the reference I was trying to make within the slug. In the show, a recurring character was Shirley, a Chihuahua who could place hexes on people by playing her cursed saxophone. The saxophone that is present in Little Helen Rose’s Live at the Monkey Room and Shirley’s sax sounds EXACTLY the same. Like, seriously. It’s absolutely uncanny.


All obscure cartoon references aside, this short EP is a firecracker of bluesy bayou fun. It opens with “Trouble Holding Back”, where Little Helen unabashedly declares her problem of keeping her opinions to herself; all the while the saxophones blare relentlessly. A highlight of the four songs is “Mississippi Moon” (or should I call it a lowlight?), a darker, quieter piece that would be perfect for walking through corn fields in the fall late at night. Live at the Monkey Room ends in the fiery climax that is “In My Time Of Dying”. The saxophones are back, and so is Rose’s feisty attitude. She belts, she agonizes, she shrieks in a total catharsis of a deep-seated fear of mortality, and it’s awesome.

RIYL: Gin Wigmore, Modest Mouse, Wild Belle

Recommended: All of it. Just listen to all of it. - WVAU


"Little Helen Rose"

Soulful siren Little Helen Rose releases her debut EP Live at the Monkey Room this week. The EP captures Little Helen Rose at her most sincere. She’ll sing with her toes dipped in the muddy waters of blues, country and soul, and her fingers on her tenor sax – armed to rip through a solo whenever there are 16 blank bars. The 4 songs were recorded live with no overdubs, no fixes – all in one take. Little Helen Rose discovered the blues early on and it suits her well. She recorded Live at the Monkey Room all in one take, live with no over-dubs. See below to watch Little Helen Rose perform one of the new tracks at The Monkey Room.

RIYL: The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Dr. John, Neko Case, Janis Joplin, John Lee Hooker, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings

"The Alternate Root: Song of the Week"

Little Helen Rose sings that she has “Trouble Holding Back” in the video. A lady singing the Blues and playing a sax…..why is holding back a problem? Written by Sam Lorber and Marvin Etzioni, original Lone Justice member/producer, shows why HoB Hollywood nabbed Little Helen Rose for their Mardi Gras bash. - See more at: http://thealternateroot.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2976%3Alhr-thb&catid=202%3Atop-videos-of-the-week&Itemid=258#sthash.bVoYPqpY.dpuf - The Alternate Root
