Snake Flower 2's debut album, Renegade Daydream, is a dream scape of novelty garage punk with a twang of psych influence. Its like getting punched in the face by your lover followed by a subsequent blood filled rusty booze fest. This is without a doubt a ten track lamb of an audio treat. So genuinely rock.

Great Band. Great Sound. Great Tonal Continuum. Great Sophomore Release. Yet again, I am thrust into uncontrollable waves of chills where I throw my head back and roll my eyes as if I'm falling into an extremely dense cloud of sexiness.
"I was not singing for war, but to engage the spirit of the maker of the arrowhead itself, to offer up Peace, that his warrior effort find a new respect, and to help my own warrior spirit sing in Peace," reveals Naybob (Nathan Shineywater if you please).
If you haven't heard of this seductively entrancing collective then jump on the mothafuckin train. Here it is, Motion to Rejoin.

Magik Markers - Pwtre Ser

Genre: Noise, Rock, Experimental, Garage
Year: 2008
Label: Arbitrary Signs
Who: Elisa Ambrogio, Pete Nolan and Leah Quimby
Where: Hartford, Connecticut
Like: Jamming the electrical socket, catching the wall on fire, and no one noticing, Triptastic
Rating: 8/10

Compare to: Old Time Relijun, Abe Vigoda, Raccoo-oo-oon, Pocahaunted, Yellow Swans

This elusive Magik Markers release hits hard with a lesser degree of vocalage and a more guttural instrumentation. Its significantly more ambient and slightly more minimalist and bit less palpable in comparison to their past releases. Pwtre Ser is like swinging too high for too long alone, or hanging out with people who don't listen to you scream.

Choice Tracks: Lengthy Rule

1. Star Jelly
2. Lengthy Rule
3. Sfosa-Mosa
4. Leah

Mother Mother - O My Heart

Indie, Folk, Rock
Year: 2008
Label: Last Gang Records
Who: Ryan Guldemond, Molly Guldemond, Debra-Jean Creelman, Jeremy Page, Ali Siadat
Where: Vancouver, Canada
Like: Muffled brass on wet roads surrounded by lots of emotional sex
Rating: 7/10

Compare to: Immaculate Machine, No Kids, Metric, Mono in VCF

Mother Mother's previous release, Touch Up, was legitimately harder to come across, but that was before this recent blow up of album linking. Regardless, O My Heart, their 2008 sophomore album, shows up the chirp of a debut in good fashion. Perfect for a happily spent lonely day in your sunshine dimmed flat, Mother Mother harmonize vocals and instrumentation far better than any band has done in a few years now. The album has an amazing collection of variations making it quite effortless to listen to all the way through.

Choice Tracks: Hayloft, Try To Change, Body

1. O My Heart
2. Burning Pile
3. Body of Yours
4. Try to Change
5. Wisdom
6. Body
7. Ghosting
8. Hayloft
9. Wrecking Ball
10. Arms Tonight
11. Miles
12. Sleep Awake
