Editorial Reviews

Atlanta's Snowden drown their brand of melodies in a sea of reverb-heavy distortion and hypnotic layers. This, their debut for Jade Tree, integrates the ethereal guitar resonance and dynamic percussion reminiscent of bands like Ride, New Order, and early Cure, with the volatility of contemporaries such as The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. An unpredictable mix of dirty pop soundscapes. If post-shoegaze exists as a genre, then Snowden is proving their contention for the upper ranks. "Anglo-friendly post-punk seasoned with generous reverb" - Creative Loafing.

4.0 out of 5 stars This band could kick Interpol's ass August 25, 2006
By 2Deep
Format:Audio CD
Wow. On first listen this band sounds like a noisier, rockier Interpol, but the more times I spin this disc (usually while driving) the more convinced I am that they are absolutely doing their own thing, and that the thing they are doing is COOOOL. They merge the grimy aesthetic of, say, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with the lush loopiness of early/mid-80s 4AD bands like the Cocteau Twins and maybe even Medusa-era Clan of Xymox. There are astounding melodies and rhythms here if you wait for them. Do give the vocals a chance - the off-key singing initially struck me as affected, but after a while it develops an irresistible charm. Sort of like Bernard Sumner's so-crap-they're-cool vocals on the early New Order records. And the DRUMMING on this record is flat-out fantastic. Just maniacal, evil, and brilliant all the way through. Give "Black Eyes" a listen if you don't believe me. Awesome. My only complaint is that the sound palette on this album gets a little wearing by the time you hit track 11 or so. Then again I'm in my mid-thirties...so maybe it's not the band's fault.

All in all, highly recommended for fans of Interpol, Stills, Cure, Joy Division, New Order - anybody with taste, really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album must be one of the best kept secrets of the year. The Interpol comparisons are inevitable, but this band has an artistic vibe going that's utterly its own. Stylish and fearless, this is one of those records that doesn't just elicit a familiar mood but creates a new, good one, ranging from the dreamy to the edgy to the somber and grand. As hard as it is to use words to describe something fresh in the world of music, I can recommend this album and band as something that is not mere derivative debutante indie rock: it's for real. I hope they don't compromise the vibe they've created with this album for their followup: it's captured in such a pure form here.

5.0 out of 5 stars great modern indie / alternative music April 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I saw this band play at the Empty Bottle in Chicago when they opened up for NME hype band !FORWARD RUSSIA! (who were absolutely horrible live and completely unwatchable). My buddy and I went randomly for something to do and went after listening to both bands' Myspace pages. The headlining NME boys could not hold our attention for more than two songs but it might have had something to do with the fact that we were still reeling from watching SNOWDEN.

We both liked Snowden so much that we bought their CD on the spot. Cheers to Jade Tree for releasing this. This band reminds me of a recent JOY DIVISION influenced band (ala Interpol, the National, etc) but with more interesting guitar sounds. Their Pitchfork review compared them to shoegazers which is not completely true for this CD. However, I thought that was definitely the case for the live show though. The singer might have been in Interpol territory but the guitarist was definitely in Chapterhouse or Catherine Wheel'sville.

Overall, this CD is great and I really wish good things for this band. Some of these songs are amazing: Like Bullets, Anti Anti, Black Eyes, Stop Your Bleeding, etc. They seemed like incredibly nice people...maybe because they are Southern? Maybe it's because the bass player is gorgeous? I hope their upcoming tour with Kings of Leon exposes them to some newer audiences! CHEERS

4.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I've Purchased In A Long Time March 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this cd a good month ago and haven't been able to stop listening to it yet. From the opening track "Like Bullets" you can tell that these guys have their own unique sound and its one i'm really into today. "Victim Card" was the very first song I had heard on XM Radio and I knew that moment I had to buy this album. "Between The Rent & Me" has become my favorite song on the cd with "Anti Anti" and "Black Eyes" being two other really clever songs. Also ya gotta check out the remixes at [...]. These guys are the best thing that have come from Athens. since REM

4.0 out of 5 stars Restrained Intensity for a Greater Product September 2, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
With "Anti-Anti", Snowden have accomplished a bridging of gaps between sophisticated indie compositions with the intensity and drive that powers harder rock in a way that works. While there is room for improvement, this is a solid effort that shows a great deal of promise, but also works great on its own. Simply put, if indie rock just doesn't quite rock hard enough for you, then give Snowden a listen because they certainly bring to the table some of that passion that I've been missing. Plus, with Spotify nowadays, you can hear it and know what you're getting into. I stand behind the decision to purchase this one.
