The Onion A.V. Club - Little Man is really just pint-sized Chris Perricelli, and he’s an f’ing rockstar—an all-too-vanishing trait in underground music. A cross between Marc Bolan of T.Rex and Ray Davies of the Kinks, the Twin Cities transplant exudes ’70s radio rock: towering riffs, sticky hooks, and oozing sex. Little Man has been a scene staple for the past decade and is now celebrating the release of its Orbital Amusement EP, a self-described “astral modern rock album.” The best rock ’n’ roll is channeled from the brain and the loins, a sentiment Perricelli takes to heart.
L’Etoile Magazine - Take everything you love about classic rock heroes Led Zepplin – the fuzzy guitar wizardry, powerful bass lines and echoed vocals – throw in a blues rock reminiscent of The Black Keys and a vintage cosmic twist that would make Barbarella and Flash Gordon proud, and you have the celestial sounds of Little Man.
From Q&A with The Onion's A.V. Club - Little Man’s new six-song EP might be called Orbital Amusements, but it’s grounded in swampy, earthy riffage like nothing the band has done before. That’s neither a bad thing, or an unrecognizable shift: The crunchy, swirling, and psychedelic ’70s sound of T. Rex and Led Zeppelin is still there in guitarist and songwriter Chris Perricelli’s playing, and the George Harrison-esque, Zen Buddhist-inspired spirituality in his lyrics is as strong as ever. - C. Bahn.
Star Tribune - "...Little Man turns up the fuzz, haze and sheer electricity on its new EP, "Orbital Amusement." Frontman/namesake Chris Perricelli channels everyone from Foghat and Big Star to Smashing Pumpkins and Queens of the Stone Age on the five-song collection..." - C. Riemenschneider
Cake In 15 - It’s no big secret that Chris Perricelli of Little Man is one of the most innovative and exciting rock and roll guitarists in town.
Pioneer Press -
The always terrific Chris Perricelli - aka Little Man - releases a new EP, "Orbital Amusement" tonight at the Turf Club with Red Pens and the Rockford Mules. While Perricelli's vocal resemblance to the late, great T. Rex mainman Marc Bolan remains undeniable, he claims Led Zeppelin's first album, "Flash Gordon"-era Queen and the Smashing Pumpkins as influences on the new disc. Every one of the six songs on the disc sound instantly familiar and should provide the ideal soundtrack for the impending summer. - Ross Raihala
Minneapolis Star Tribune - Music: Little Man, Big 'Mind'
"The 5-foot-2 rocker exudes confidence and energy on stage, bearing a charisma that's much bigger than he is.... Man, what a rock star." - C. Riemenschneider, Star Tribune.
"Equal parts Bowie and Bodhisattva, Chris Perricelli mixes spiritual insight with massive riffs for maximum impact..." R.V. Alstyne, The Onion.
