We’ve learned a few things from February’s Music for Film LP and Music for Television EP, the first two releases by Jared Putnam’s The March Divide (with help from his friends Mike Hernández and Jeremy Brooks). First of all, Putnam can chew up and spit out genres, easily moving from indie-rock to folk to quasi-punk to pop. Secondly, he sounds best in his urban-desert-folkster incarnation, backed by whining harmonicas or soft female vocals. Finally, he’s increasingly adept at writing catchy songs, even when they occasionally come of as overwrought. Two tracks, in particular, adorn Music for Television with a sense of creative voice and fire that was nearly non-existent on the first March Divide effort—pay close attention to “LA” and “Trying Now.”
