Posthumous album from Perth, Australia / London troupe Snowman makes you wish they didn’t disband right before they would be making it big. Get in if you like Battles and Gang Gang Dance.
“The band has made an especially impressive trick out of working similar sounds for different overall effect on this album. Ross DiBlasio’s drums are often the change agent— they might add nothing more than a time-keeping thump and click on one song, and on the next they’re crashing through the more ambient sounds like a hammer through glass, ratcheting up the anxiety rather than pushing the beat. It really is too bad that this will be the band’s final release, because Snowman had firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with.” Pitchfork, 8.0
