Choose Your Adventure” is the debut album from Sacramento, California's, Arts & Leisure.

A collaboration between Larsen and Andrew Hoke (AKA Bird Peterson, nationally renowned electronic artist and DJ), Flowerss is electro-shoegaze at its finest—twirling guitars drenched in feedback, atmospheric crescendos, thumping pulse and groovy trip-hoppy rhythm. Throw on the duo’s debut release Charm and you’ll be lulled into a sea of trickling beats before being washed over with a full wave of grunge-inspired guitar and emotive, almost ghost-like, vocals.

Arts & Leisure by Baby Grand OUT NOW!
Arts & Leisure by Baby Grand OUT NOW!

'Arts & Leisure' is the fourth release by Baby Grand, and it's most diverse and realized release to date. While continuing their tradition of beautifully orchestrated pop songs in the vein of groups such as Belle & Sebastian and Camera Obscura, this album brings more of the band’s influences to the forefront, and breaks out of the indie pop mold with songs that run the gamut from country waltzes to 1960s-era folk and girl group sounds.
