The Memphis based band continues the long lasting tradition of playing honest music for the “right reasons”. On Doing the Distance Snowglobe, (August 2nd, makeshift music) has made great steps forward since its debut Our Land Brains on Bardot Records. “The sheer wealth of instruments the band uses creates moments as jam packed as rush hour. Principal songwriters Regan and Postlethwaite manage to keep the music unpretentious with a homey, lived-in quality and a gentle, unassuming lilt. “ Infectious songs like “regime”, “changes”, “ms. June”, “Rock song” , set the pace for an eclectic but cohesive mixture of pop gems. Memphis's Snowglobe plays an entrancing blend of cosmic American music that owes as much to pioneering psychedelic country/pop legends like the Byrds and Gram Parsons as it does to modern-day fellow travelers like the Flaming Lips. read more from the source...
