Album Review

Snowden has been compared to the Cure and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but the indie rock outfit carves out their own swarthy sound on their Jade Tree debut, Anti-Anti. Thankfully, the Atlanta-via-Athens quartet's thawing post-shoegazer/dream pop blend has absolutely nothing to do with Interpol and the like, thus the album title says it all. Singer/songwriter Jordan Jeffares' droning vocals and David Payne's reverb-driven guitars surround these 12 nervy melodies for a lush atmosphere of sonic hysteria. So what if it slightly echoes the classic sounds of '80s post-punk in the process? Producer/engineer Erik Wofford adds polish to Snowden's slippery moods so songs such as the moaning twitch of "Like Bullets" and the neurotic punctuality of "Counterfeit Rules" never lose their momentum. Slower cuts such as "My Murmuring Darling" and "Innocent Heathen" filter through a melancholic ebb and flow of Chandler Rentz's faint percussion and Corinne Lee's icy bass work. For those who enjoy the quieter moments of Joy Division and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness' first album, Snowden's wavering gloom should be a nice fit for your collection.

Customer Reviews

great album!

but it's not as good as their first album entitled "jesus." i remember when they were an honest gospel band and now they have gone to the dark side and made droning, darkly accessible indie rock:)

One of the best albums ever!!

So I heard this band a few years ago and they blew my mind. I got everything I could by them, even a online only remix of songs of Anti-Anti, and still want more. I anxiously await their EP and full length due out in 2010, sooner than later I hope. Snowden has jumped into my top 5 favorite bands of all time in 2 short years. This album is almost flawless through and through.... you'll be shakin your shoulders in no time. I highly recommend this me

I don't get why this isn't more exposed

Okay, that's a lie. I definitely get that this may not possess mass appeal, but honestly, this *entire* album is so... so... clean. Not that it's "prissy," it's just so well done and while their sound and style are coherent throughout the entire album, their range is surprisingly versatile. The songs don't feel like repeats, and this is a really great album that I don't mind just letting it go at its own pace. I often find myself jumping around tracks on an album (if all of its tracks are even good enough), but this album is so well thought out, it's almost meticulous. But not in a strained fashion.
Okay, so I'm ranting, but I love this album. I don't know why I didn't post my thoughts here sooner. I wish I were famous so I could "tweet" the crap out of this album and get it known, haha. (Their new EP is also amazing, even though it's not on iTunes.)


Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Taking its name from the novel Catch 22, indie rock band Snowden includes Chandler Rentz (drums), Corinne Lee (bass, keyboard), David Payne (guitar), and Jordan Jeffares (vocals, guitar, keyboard). Snowden had its start in 2004 in Jeffares' bedroom during his senior year in college. The demo recordings impressed Jeffares' brother, who introduced him to like-minded musicians. Now a quartet, the band found local success with a self-released EP, which encouraged them to travel to New York for shows....
