So I have been turned on to a GREAT band out of Perth Australia called Snowman. They are a 4 piece lineup with 4 releases to their name. From what I understand they have quite a buzz going round Australia and with a recent review of their new album "The Horse, the Rat and the Swan" in Pitchfork Magazine I believe they are well on their way to opening up the eyes of many.
The new album is an awesome listen from start to finish. The elements of angry intense vocals, fragmented at times helps mesh the driving percussion with all other layers. I feel each track stands alone yet is needed to complete the whole listening experience from beginning to end. For me, Snowman brings elements of Nick Cave and other dark geniuses together into one place. From what I have listened to I definitely like their newest effort the best. Very different from older releases and much angrier.
here is a video off the new album
