Snowmine – Columbus
Snowmine is on the cusp of making that challenging transition from acclaimed indie pop act to mainstream powerhouse. It’s really just a matter of time at this point – that is until their sophomore album Dialects is released in Februrary. I forsee it having a similar impact to TV On The Radio’s Dear Science or perhaps even Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. They’ve just released their second single from the album titled “Columbus” and it’s a dreamy, atmospheric blend of strings, bass and some fine guitar work. If you’re not super familiar with Snowmine, I’d urge you to delve into their 2011 classic Laminate Pet Animal to get a full understanding of just how talented this Brooklyn 5 piece is. I imagine the anticipation is high on their end as February approaches, but if you really want to show your support you can donate to their crowdfunding experiment on their website.
