The Texas-based alt/psyche act Leon III shares their version of Jane’s Addiction’s “Summertime Rolls.”  Leon III’s Andy Stepanian says the song came together on a whim during a day off in Charlotte, NC.  “ I had revisited Jane’s Addiction’s first few albums a bunch in recent months,” says Stepanian,  “I kept coming back to ‘Summertime Rolls’ and thinking about how it could be a Leon III song.  It rocks, but there’s a looseness to it too that I like.” Leon III is known for its expansive musical exploration sprinkled with psychedelia and folk that offers the listener an auditory experience unlike anything else.   

Leon III, sounds like a relic from another age. In a time when so much of today’s music seems as disposable and temporal as a tweet, Leon III is standing athwart the tide; and here, the band conjures the spirit and ambition of Pink Floyd and Grateful Dead. Make no mistake, Leon III has the potential for a serious shelf life.
