PRAISE FOR “LITTLE BEAST”


(Little Beast) is a Masterclass in Devastation”
— DU Clarion, 2019
If the new single “Soft Line” is any indication, Little Beast is poised to be her most rich and fully realized artistic statement yet.
— NPR, 2019
Independent Music Award Winner for Best Album - Singer-Songwriter
— Independent Music Awards, 2019
Another master of musical melancholy is, undeniably, Lucy Wainwright Roche. On her new album, Little Beast, she churns out lyrical impossibilities time and again, each conveying so much with so little. It happens on “Soft Line,” “Trouble,” “In Relation to Disaster,” “Ohio Is for Lovers,” and almost every other cut. The depth and density of songwriting on display, here, is truly something to behold.
— Folk Alley, 2019
Roche’s haunting and ethereal vocals fill the album with a soaring emotional quality that touches us on every song, and her poignant lyrics reveal her moving and ingenious songwriting.
— No Depression, 2019
The world may long ago have had enough of silly love songs, but it certainly hasn’t had enough of this kind, the ones that reach inside us and serve to remind that sometimes there’s nothing heavier than the moment before the final letting go.
— Pop Matters, 2019
