Memphis's SNOWGLOBE plays an entrancing blend of cosmic American music that owes as much to pioneering psychedelic country/pop legends like THE BYRDS and GRAM PARSONS as it does to modern-day fellow travelers like THE FLAMING LIPS. Having played together since high school, the members of Snowglobe have a unique ability to create complex songs with a rich pallet of sounds in a seemingly nonchalant way. The Memphis-based band continues the long lasting tradition of playing honest music for the right reasons. Many comparisons to NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL, and ELEPHANT 6 recording company have been made to Snowglobe, and as natural as the comparison seems, it seems to be an easy way out; Snowglobe has advanced far beyond this. Snowglobe sounds like MERCURY REV, the piano balladry of TIM HARDIN, early '70s BEACH BOYS, and THE KINKS. Snowglobe is a band that takes form past genres and pushes those influences a step or two forward. This is a very song-oriented band. The noises and kitchen sink extremities aren't thrown in nonchalantly; they are precise and subtle flourishes that add texture.
