These Brooklynites create their own vernacular in sound, piecing together an album that clearly required a lot of attention to detail. While their peers make these sounds with computers, Snowmine went the extra mile or 10, and recorded everything using modern and vintage equipment, even going as far as to arrange much of it in a church so as to yield the most authentic sound.
Moving swiftly from orchestral pop to experimental, ambient moods to more direct indie-rock territories, there’s a wealth of melody, texturing, reverb and lovely looping going on here, as the band explore elegant sounds between electro-pop, indie and classical/chamber ideas. Both The Shins and Lost In The Trees came to mind here, and there’s never anything wrong with that. (Tom Haugen)
