Today Ivy League Records are thrilled to release Idiot Proverbs, the excellent debut album from beloved Melbourne outfit, Tiny Little Houses. Following the release of singles ‘Garbage Bin’ and ‘Entitled Generation’ at the end of last year, fans have this week been treated to a preview of the record thanks to triple j, who crowned Idiot Proverbs as their first feature album of 2018!
“Tiny Little Houses’ debut album is a tome of slacker wit and wisdom.” – triple j
“Karvountzis has emerged as an unflinching chronicler of inner volatility.” – Rolling Stone
“Tiny Little Houses’ debut album hits right where it hurts, but leaves enough light to dance around in spite of it all.” – The Music
To celebrate the release, Tiny Little Houses founder and singer/guitarist Caleb Karvountzis will be performing a series of intimate in-store acoustic sets this weekend, kicking off today in Sydney at Red Eye Records (5pm), Saturday in Melbourne at Oh! Jean Records (4pm) and finishing in Brisbane on Sunday at Sonic Sherpa (1pm).
Following release, the band is gearing up for their highly-anticipated national album tour for this February and March 2018. The run of shows will see the four-piece bring Idiot Proverbs to life for fans in Ballarat, Melbourne, Hobart, Wollongong, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
“We’ve been working on a bunch of songs very important to us which
have made our new album. We can’t wait to play the record live in full especially
since you would have had the chance to hear them all by the time we tour!
Thanks for the on-going support and interest in our music, hopefully see you at
these shows soon.” – Tiny Little Houses
Tiny Little Houses have spent the last three years winning hearts and blowing minds around Australia thanks to a succession of finely-crafted indie-pop gems including ‘Milo Tin’, ‘Song Despite Apathy’ ‘Easy’, ‘Soon We Won’t Exist’, ‘Garbage Bin’, and most recently, ‘Entitled Generation’.
The follow-up to the four-piece’s first two EPs – You Tore Out My Heart (2015) and Snow Globe (2016) – Idiot Proverbs finds Tiny Little Houses growing up and getting more confident with where they can push their sound. As well as being the band’s most raucous collection of tunes so far, the album highlights the discernible progress of Karvountzis as a songwriter. Indeed, Idiot Proverbs presents wry reflections on growing up, finding your place amongst the chaos and falling short of your own (and others’) expectations.
The album finds Tiny Little Houses continuing their relationship with producer Steven Schram (Paul Kelly, San Cisco, Loon Lake) who was also behind the controls for most of the band’s previous efforts.
Tickets for the Tiny Little Houses Idiot Proverbs album tour are on sale now.
