MP3 At 3PM: The Persian Leaps

ThePersianLeaps

The Persian Leaps will release High And Vibrate on September 25, but MAGNET has lead single “Dottie, Queen Of The West,” right now. “Dottie” is defined by its colorful and lively wall of guitar as well as its candid vocal performance. There’s a hint of British pop in the band’s sound, a little Smiths in the nuance of the guitar and Blur in the catchiness of its melodies. Download it out below.

MP3 At 3PM: Strange & Primitive

StrangeAndPrimitive

Strange & Primitive has unleashed another new track from its self-titled record, and we’ve got a free download of it. “That Big City Glow” has an interesting dynamic, never quite exploding into chaos, but still operating on a big shift from clean verses to busier, vocal-enveloping choruses. It’s an impressive feat of restraint, enough to put the band’s release in the “definite listen” category. Download “The Big City Glow” below.

ForestOfTongue

Forest Of Tongue hails from Long Beach and flaunts a wonderfully unpredictable style of rock ‘n’ roll.

MP3 At 3PM: Holly Arrowsmith

HollyArrowsmith

Holly Arrowsmith creates the kind of understated Americana that’s perfect for the wearied middle portion of a long road trip. “Canyons” comes from her aptly titled For The Weary Traveller, blooming amongst a lush array of harmonicas, banjos and guitars. The song never overwhelms with sounds, but it surely makes an impression, Arrowsmith marveling at the beauty of her surroundings as she repeats, “River roll on to the sea.” Check it out below.
