about

The follow-up to 2009's "As Is the Sun", recorded in the basement between early-2010 and mid-2011. More spontaneous than the narrative of "As Is the Sun", "Snakes" started as (mostly) a series of disconnected, stream-of-conscious ideas that are not necessarily a means to an end, but ends in themselves. That's not to say this is a collection of islands, but more a chain of roads with no particular destination. Plainly, it's twelve songs that sound good in succession.

"It builds on As Is The Sun in sound, atmosphere, colors... a dense, soulful music that stands for itself... (9/10)" - Dying For Bad Music

"This is a must-have!" - Tons More Cowbell
