Editorial Reviews

After more than a half-decade after their breakthrough debut album, Snowden returns with No One In Control. Jordan Jeffares - the multi-talented mind behind Snowden - toiled for almost six years, pushing himself and his music ever closer to madness, and that hermetic intensity can be heard in each facet of the record, finely etched with the help of producer Bill Skibbe (John Spencer, Blues Explosion, The Kills, Fiery Furnaces). From the syrupy pulse beats of So Red; to the nihilistic euphoria of the first single, The Beat Comes, Snowden has crafted a vivid portrait of obsession and isolation, of gut-wrenching doubt and ultimate redemption. With its seamless integration of haunting melodies, rhythmic ingenuity, and deft songcraft, No One In Control sees Snowden's artistry and ambition ascending to untouched new heights.

I don't want to overstate it, but it's rare that I hear an album absolutely full of sounds that feel like they're tickling part of my brain, triggering shivers down my spine. We've had to wait a very long time for Jordan Jeffares to finish this album, but the years of hard work are easy to appreciate as you navigate the seemingly endless layers of detail and texture on Snowden's "No One In Control". There is some amazing music coming out this year, but I'm almost ready to call it already after listening to this. Buy this album now (and listen to it with some really good headphones).

Very sophisticated work! Risks are taken and sounds eat into each other (Not Good Enough). They are true to their style on every song with a strong consistency that runs the length of the album, yet there is plenty of variety.

Contemporary-alternative to the marrow of bone, the distortion is top notch with haunting vocals that echo and are interwoven with pounding percussions that are anthem at times. And surprise sounds flash in and out with a buzz, pop, hum, and screech that seem to twist and float throughout (No One In Control, So Red, Hiss, & Keep Quiet).

The studio work here feels like something of a live performance at a vast metallic cathedral with immense vaulted heights (The Beat Comes, Don’t Really Know Me, & Candy for Everyone).

Emotional depth ranges from a sense of loss and solitude to songs that have a somewhat upbeat vibe. Their delicate sensitivity can turn fairly somber (This Year), while other times they are truly energizing (The Beat Comes). Overall there is definitely an air of inner contemplation and self-reflection.

There are moments where thick layers turn into and out of ambient-ephemeral wisps that transport you to another state of mind/feeling (Anemone Arms, & No Words No More). This is stuff you can have on in the background surrounding you, OR turn up, jump in, and float away.

I discovered Snowden through their Slow Soft Syrup EP, so it was wonderful revisiting those 5 tracks in their now polished state. The rest of the album is just as pleasing to listen through.

I sometimes worry that I'm giving a four star album a five star treatment because of my subjective bias from a few of these songs serving as set pieces in a formative time in my life, at least until I remember just how damn good the album is. Seeing Snowden perform in Austin only fortified how intrinsically this album resonates with me.

Five stars, zero regrets; two thumbs, both of them up.

Discovered this band on Pandora about 4 years ago. I bought the Anti-anti album and wore it out for the better part of a year. To me it was the kind of music I wish more people were making. Got a few friends hooked and then it seemed as if they just went away.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out after several years they are back with No One in Control. I instantly bought the album without hearing any of the tracks. I am so glad I did. The Anti-anti sound is still present but has matured with age just as most of us have. I can tell you this album will be my listening enjoyment for the foreseeable future.
Snowden has progressed the way the Killers should have. They are the perfect mix of electronic and instruments. If you like Arcade Fire, Stereophonics or the National and you haven't checked this band out do it now! You won't regret it.

Snowden's first album, Anti-Anti, was a pulsing pleasure, best listened to at loud volumes. Their second album is more meditative, more brooding (but no less dark). No One In Control feels like a natural progression for the band. It was a long time coming, but well worth the wait.
