THOUGHTS: Mr. Little Jeans is Monica Birkenes, and of all of the “new” acts I wanted to check out, she was at the top of my list. Having heard her music on KCRW, I immediately compared her sound to that of Lykke Li … and I like Lykke Li. Plus, she named herself after a bit role from Wes Anderson’s movie “Rushmore”, and I like that movie too. Her synth infused, dance-pop music attracted quite a crowd, and she had them eating out of her hands. Though she only one album under her belt, her emotive and upbeat stage presence left the impression on me that as long as she keeps creating music that her fans obviously love, she’ll carve out a nice little career for herself.
