Pittsburgh rock duo 1, 2, 3 have released a new EP entitled Dreamland Pt. 1 (For Daisy) as a free download, as Listen Before You Buy points out. Stream the five-track effort below, or download your own copy here.

Vocalist Nic Snyder originally wrote and recorded the EP to help his niece fall asleep before deciding to release it to a wider audience:

“HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is a lullaby, EP tha [sic] was recorded for my baby niece, Daisy. It was initially intended for her and my family only, but I ended up getting very involved in the production of it and at the suggestion of my bandmates (while collaborating with them on it’s [sic] finishing touches and the second track, “It Gets Dark”) I decided to let anyone who wants to hear it, hear it.

It’s [sic] aim is slumber–especially on it’s [sic] second half–so if you are remotely drowsy I wouldn’t suggest driving around jamming on it.

It mostly flows together, as well, so I recommend completely downloading it and transferring it to your iTunes before listening.

Enjoy.

The band may have traded their tensile guitars and jagged rhythms for a softer sound, but Dreamland Pt. 1 (For Daisy) maintains their trademark eclecticism. Against various swaying strings and xylophone drips, Snyder’s voice runs the gamut from freak-folk whisper on “It Gets Dark” to Tom Waitsian baritone on “Turtle & Bear”.

1, 2, 3’s debut LP, New Heaven, is also out now. Find their upcoming tour dates below.
