Leash, the new album by Little Hag is out now via Bar/None Records
for all the latest visit:
"Her trembling howls are at once brazenly honest, gloriously profane, and undeniably magnetic, taking on everything from heartbreak to the misogynistic men that occupy the music scene. Avery is willing to be messy, to be nasty, to be vulnerable, and to be powerful, proving herself on Leash to be a rare songwriting talent and a true rock star presence" - Under The Radar
Little Hag, the artist formerly known as Avery Mandeville, was conceived in a New Jersey basement and born again during quarantine. Fronted by the singer/songwriter, Mandeville has released a number of EPs as a solo act and put thousands of miles on other people’s vans touring the US. Little Hag is Mandeville (she/her) on guitar and complaining, Matt Fernicola (he/him) on lead guitar, Owen Flanagan (he/him) on drums, Chris Dubrow (he/him) on bass, and Noah Rauchwerk (he/him) on keys and emotional support.
Signed by Bar/None Records just before everything shut down, Little Hag emerged in 2020 with "Tetris," a 2 minute slice of pure pop pugnaciousness with a bummer end of summer vibe, followed by a compilation LP of older Mandeville tracks titled "Whatever Happened To Avery Jane?" The album chronicles Mandeville’s many pleasures and pains, from making a game out of the “walk of shame,” calling out abusive men, social media stalking, reckless driving, and the like. 2021's "Breakfast" EP and "Leash" LP elaborate on these themes in a big way. With the unholy trinity of "Piss," Blood," and "Cum" and LP standouts "Cherry" and "Brass Knuckle Keychain," Little Hag cemented themselves as the up and coming foul mouthed brats we don't deserve but definitely need now more than ever.
She’s a confrontational frontwoman with a penchant for brutal honesty, profanity, and the taboo, and a voice that has been compared to Roy Orbison, Angel Olsen, silk taffeta, and a car backing out of a gravel driveway. After Little Hag shows, many old dudes have said "What is she so angry about?" because they weren’t listening. In her previous incarnation she was named one of 8 New Jersey musicians you need to know by the Asbury Park Press and her 2018 LP ranked as the #5 album of the year by NJ.com.
Passion of the Weiss calls Little Hag “…a thrilling songwriter, untethered from time and place, sending DMs and shade, not greetings, from Asbury Park.”
