iTunes Editors’ Notes

Monica Birkenes opens her debut full-length singing like a bird celebrating its bird-ness: cooing and twittering in sweet and playful tones, swooping and dipping and gliding for the fun of it. It’s the best kind of pop, in the vein of Cardigans and Brunettes. But slipping into the duskier tones of “Mercy,” it’s clear that Pocketknife is more than pop confection. Her super-chill and somewhat spooky cover of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” garnered the Norwegian singer a few million new YouTube fans, and her morphing from pop to moody electronica and back again hasn’t seemed to bother them a bit. Mr Little Jeans (she took the moniker from a character in the quirky and beloved film “Rushmore”) seems quite comfy in pants of all kinds: the sleek Knife-nod “Good Mistake” is as sexy and cool as black leather; the kids’ choir on “Oh Sailor” is as carefree as summer capris; the drowsy “Mercy” ebbs and flows like a silky pair of harem pants. Birkenes is a confident and strong writer and arranger, a fabulous performer, and an artist ready to join Lorde and Lykke Li on the big stage.

I'm the type of person that either only buys single songs from an album or buys the album and only listens to a few select songs. But this album…I have listened to straight all the way through multiple times on end and I'm still not sick of it yet. Absolutely in love. Worth every penny.


Could jam these guys all day long, have yet to listen to anything i didnt like! much love for these guys right now <3

When her cover versions of well-known Beyoncé and Arcade Fire songs launched her into the public eye via YouTube and SoundCloud, Mr. Little Jeans turned to her own music, landing successful spots on popular TV shows like Gossip...
