Little Sur EP (Self-Released) 2011
Available on Itunes and for free download at:



Little Sur is the creative collaboration of Jesse Aicher and Josh Meer, along with whatever friends they can gather. In a few short months the band released their folk inspired debut EP featuring vocalist Olivia Gerber. The EP was recorded, mixed, and produced entirely by Aicher and Meer and written with help from Gerber. It was released digitally April 3rd, 2011 on Bandcamp.

Little Sur’s sound combines the rustic aesthetic of folk music with the timbres and lyrical musings of modern day indie-rock, melding ethereal guitar and banjo with honest and intimate male/female vocals. Their arrangements recall Elliot Smith and Devendra Banhardt with vocal deliveries that stir in listeners recollections of Joanna Newson, Justin Vernon, and Ben Gibbard. On their self-titled E.P large, lush orchestrations are juxtaposed with subdued, minimalist numbers that remain cohesive in their intricate production. The result is both cinematic and emotional, harnessing the authenticity of roots music and the experimentation awarded with contemporary technology. The EP features “A Fragile Thing”, winner of Best Soundtrack at NYU’s Tisch 48 Film Festival, and the single “Barbarosa”. With Little Sur, the ‘folk’ genre is eternally stretched.
