Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve [Snowman]

This is your Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one "chill" track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I'm here to make a delivery. Chill...

Today's delivery is brought to you by Snowman. This 4-piece band from Western Australia have been fairly consistent over their short career. Unfortunately, they decided to call it quits this past year after their best LP. They released a total of only 4 albums, but the substance within has always been topical for indie music fans. Their first three albums consisted of mainly alternative rock with lots of noise rock ingredients. For the most part, they sounded very much like a garage rock band with a more experimental twist. After their first three records though, lead singer and songwriter Joe McKee decided he wanted to try a different direction in the band's song crafting. At the time of the album's creation, McKee had gained an interest in postcards of all things as he grew interested in the idea of these gorgeous locations with no people. Some were romantic and some were dark and dreary but they all accomplished this feeling of being lost or confined. Musically, the album ∆bsence isn't alternative rock at all. It explores a much more broad range of chillwave, electronic, and dream pop. Overall, it became one of my top 5 records of 2011 for being so ethereal and downright eerie. This track, "White Wall", ended up being of the strongest tracks of the entire year. It's a gorgeous song but it's also creepy as shit so maybe turn on a night light if you're listening to it in the dark and chill...
