She's the subject of a found photo, one of many rescued with the warmth of a blow dryer and a fireplace, by singer Josh Hayden Kolenik after Hurricane Sandy flooded his family’s Long Island home.

Best Blues (LP, Album).
Small Black's chillwave blur carries over to the entire album, from the icy exquisiteness of "Back At Belle's" to the relatively muscular attack of "Checkpoints," in which Kolenik perks up enough to put an edge on his voice, as if he's trying to rouse himself from a deep, troubled sleep. That dreaminess is best heard in "Between Leos. The absence of things is a big part of Kolenik's lyrical preoccupation on Best Blues. Personal Best," on the other hand, is far more challenging, recalling the band's scruffier origins; chunks of distortion and smears of prickly texture underpin some of Kolenik's most ethereal vocals
With all the memories, both good and bad, unearthed on this album, Best Blues finds Small Black holding their composure, even when it seems like it'll be a total bummer. 60. A rather smooth and relaxing affair, Best Blues proves that sometimes less is more.
Though we like to pretend the dance is choreographed there looms the pattern more random every day. seen through a pane of glass but clearly magnified we sit and focus and hone in on the worst.
