Little Big League is an American indie rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Little Big League began in October 2011. Since then, they have signed to Tiny Engines and Run For Cover Records, as well as released two full-length albums. Their first album, titled These Are Good People, was released in 2013.[1] Their second album, titled Tropical Jinx, was released in 2014.[2][3]

After Zauner's mother was diagnosed with cancer, she moved back to Eugene, Oregon. She recorded two lo-fi digital releases American Sound and Where Is My Great Big Feeling? under the name Japanese Breakfast.[4] A selection of these songs were re-recorded together with Ned Eisenberg. In April 2016 the album Psychopomp was released on Yellow K Records.[5]
