If you're into those outrageous, crazy-eyed rockabillies whom appear rather shoegazish but then side-swipe you with hypnotizing tribal-esque rhythms and belligerent vocals than hold the phone because Snowman has come just in time to slap that holiday cheer right off your face. But in a good way! That is if you enjoy making your greasy hair stand on end and then making it all right again. On their November release of The Horse, The Rat & The Swan, Snowman has accomplished all of this and then some. Their aesthetic is hard to put your finger on. I'd suggest listening to them before you investigate them...which is always best anyways. They embody a specific style of alternative rock fused with dark psychedelic punk rock that is a very worthwhile listen if you ask me.
