Who LOVES Elizabeth & the Catapult:

Featured on WNYC’s Soundcheck

The Village Voice:
“Elizabeth & the Catapult have managed to hurl themselves pretty far through word-of-mouth buzz. The unsigned local trio, led by vocalist Elizabeth Ziman and her Aimee Mann-like drawl, has built a loyal local fanbase via jazzy, buoyant pop songs; they’re now making frequent appearances on NPR’s Studio 360. Check out jaunty earworm “Momma’s Boy,” off their self-titled EP-these three won’t be flying under the radar for long.”

Spin.com Artist of the Day:

“The group utilizes elastic rhythms and dark subject matter that gives it’s songs a slow burn resonance. The sing-a-long swing of “Momma’s Boy” makes it one of the most tuneful kiss-off songs in recent memory. Fan so of Feist should be head over heels in no time.”

Billboard Mag:
“‘Momma’s Boy’ is a weight title that will prompt savvy listeners to look for more from this budding act, while rewarding outlets that indulge Ziman by breaking type.”

Boston Globe:
“The self-assured Elizabeth and the Catapult prove what a sultry-voiced Greenwich Village habitué with a Norah Jones should do: Just let it flow.”

Elizabeth & the Catapult “Taller Children” available June 9, 2009
