Shameless Tuesdays: Livre 127 | The Persian Leaps

Bands often wear their influences on their sleeves. The Persian Leaps would rather wear them as a scarf, keeping their voices and heads warm in order to create and perform. This is the vibe I get when hearing their rendition of The Smiths's classic "Jeane", a cover that's a bit more electric and positive than the original. It results in a version that turns heartbreak into a mutual breakup, with two former lovers moving on for the betterment of their lives. Although a relationship has come to an end, The Persian Leaps keep the memories alive with great success. To cement this special cover, The Persian Leaps offer a reflective Shameless Tuesdays that looks back at recent melody memories.

Here's what The Persian Leaps have to say about this week's playlist:

I'm always on the lookout for great new catchy power pop or indie rock. This playlist showcases some of my favorite songs from the past 3 years, as well as a smattering of Persian Leaps songs from the same period.

"All in a Day" by the Jacks is a particularly meaningful song for me. It's actually NOT new at all. It dates to 1981 when the Jacks recorded material in a small Minneapolis studio with some help from members of the Replacements and Hüsker Dü. However, the material was only released widely 40 years later in 2021. I would have loved the song and the rest of the album in any case, but coincidentally, the Persian Leaps recorded and/or mixed most of our releases at the very same studio (under new ownership) from 2012 up through the pandemic. So, in some small way, I hope we've been keeping the spirit of the Jacks alive in the 21st century.
