Mp3 Exclusive: The Snowleopards

DOWNLOAD: Snowleopards, "Stuck in the Middle" (mp3)

Sarah Tomlinson gets the lowdown this week on Heidi Saperstein's band the Snowleopards, who're playing tonight at Sally O'Briens, next to PA's Lounge in Union Square, openingg for Emily Grogan: it's a CD-release party for a one-song single that they'll be giving away free at the door. Or, if you can't make it, you can just download it here. You should. Because it's really, really good: plugging in and rocking out, they channel Fountains of Wayne’s new-wave pop and toss in a classic Fleetwood Mac-ish solo for good measure.

Recorded at the band’s home studio, ["Stuck in the Middle"] was mixed by local power-pop songsmith BLEU. “It’s guitar-oriented pop, like a merge of the modern retro ’80s sound (with the synth-sounding Elbow guitar) and ’70s guitar pop like Fleetwood Mac,” says guitarist Mike Oor. The band, which also includes drummer Paul Trudeau and bassist Jim Zavadoski (ex-DAMN PERSONALS), will record their debut full-length at their home studio this summer. Bleu will produce two of the songs and mix the entire album. “The record will be very pop and guitar heavy,” says Oor. In the meantime, Saperstein will sing on Grogan’s upcoming album and perform with Bleu’s Get Up Choir at the Paradise on June 16.
