And now for something a little different, a collection of all Snowmine-related audio and video I can find. This is where you get to see the ‘I-wish-I-had-a-music-blog’ side of me. Actually, I used to have one years ago, and both the posts were outstanding…
So who are Snowmine? Glad you asked. They are a Brooklyn band that deserve more attention is what they are. I ran across their album Laminate Pet Animal (read that title backwards) by accident one day on Bandcamp and grabbed it on a whim since I am a broke missionary but still want to find new music. Their sound took a little while to grow on me since at first they didn’t seem particularly unique; however, I’ve since come to love them. Their pursuit of sound is evident in their effect-laden guitars and reverb-drenched vocals, yet melody is not sacrificed on the ambient altar. Judging by their videos this is not studio trickery, they really are fantastic musicians, and their live show appears impressive.
I’m always on the lookout for new Snowmine music or performances and since it took a fair bit of effort to find any and wished I could find them all in one place, I’ve attempted to do that myself. What I’ve got here are all the videos and audio I could find.
If you aren’t a fan of Snowmine, check them out. If you are a fan of Snowmine, consider this my gift to you! Please add anything I’ve missed in the comments.
Laminate Pet Animal
Here is their debut album. It’s name-your-own-price, so there’s really no excuse to get this if you like it (and then go back and pay for it). Be on the lookout for their new album. News will probably be posted on their Facebook page or Twitter.

Here’s a new track called Saucer Eyes. I expect it’s from their upcoming album.

Here’s another new one called Silver Sieve
Shaking Through Session
Shaking Through films the process of making a song, documentary style. It’s very interesting for music nerds like me. Snowmine recorded one of their best songs, a non-album track called Curfews. This video gives great insight on how they get their sound.
See more videos on Snowmine’s Shaking Through page.
Snowmine’s Buzzsession contains two excellent live studio performances of Further Along, Farther Away (new song) and Curfews.
