"Memory Loss" by The Snow // Memory Loss - Single (Out 4.19.14 via Captured Tracks)
Well, this is something special. A Captured Tracks supergroup has formed the features Jack Tatum (Wild Nothing), Dustin Payseur (Beach Fossils), and Andreas Lagerstrom (Holograms). The band calls themselves The Snow and their debut single, “Memory Loss”, will drop on Record Story Day. Of course, Captured Tracks has the decency to not keep us waiting, and have offered up a listen to the forthcoming single. “Memory Loss” is pretty much exactly what you’d expect from the talent involved, a driving post punk rhythm, shimmering guitars, atmospheric haze, and emotive, melodic vocals. It definitely has a foot in the halcyon days of the modern/college rock era (late 80s), but it still feel vital and fresh as the participants other bands. It’s a killer jam and one that will hopefully spur on further collaborations that might give us a full length someday. Highest recommendation!
