Welcome to ‘The Snake Presents’, here I will take the time to introduce the most recent single releases, free music archive posts, exclusive previews of upcoming albums, and any other happenings of the week. It has been too long that The Snake Records contribution to Dingus has been a random post that pops up and gets lost in the daily report’s of the Dingus writers, welcome to the place that this changes. Here you will get your compiled firsthand look at what bands we at The Snake Records have been listening to all week and much much more. Enjoy.
First up this week is the first official release of October and happens to be release number forty-five!
“Things may change or stay the same, repeating history,”
‘Bright Lights‘ is solemn, earnest, and reflective whilst remaining triumphant and transcendent. The sonic experience is quite powerful indeed, combining acoustic guitar, stripped drums, and perfectly placed accents of trumpet. Building slow and ending with a throbbing heartbeat this is much more then just a song of love and loss, it is a song calling out for truth, and acceptance. The deeper you delve into the lyrics the more you realize this song is about. Maybe not even a lover at all, (although a lover of sorts), anyway, I would think about the earth as well as your past loves while listening to this one. The track comes off of Things That We Thought That We Knew a new, delicately crafted 9-track album from One Desire.
“The bright lights from the shopping malls. You can see them from where we are, Do you remember when they we just trees?”
Moving on to Free Music Archive, where we revisit the past releases at The Snake Records and further distribute and promote for our beloved bands whom have done releases with us. All of you Snake fans out there will surely remember this one.
Here is what we originally said at The Snake. ”An electrified, amped up, version of the anthemic, smart-ass, acoustic cut from their album, Roger.” I would like to add a little more back story on this one. This version was conceived and recorded exclusively to be released with The Snake Records. This doesn’t happen too often, but when it does it is truly special. Personally I can’t get enough of The Canoes, so thank goodness they just released a brand new album Slim Century. I have to give a lot of props to The Canoes on this one, there is a limited edition run of this album on 12-inch Vinyl complete with a t-shirt package for sale online and you know I will be one of the first people to have this pre-ordered go out and get yours before they are gone! Here is a sneak peak.
Finally, I have to take a second to plug this album again. I know I posted it recently as the first ‘The Snake Previews’ but it is just so damn good. The album is finally out and available for download. Check it out, it is one of the best I’ve heard all year. Get it here. Also, I already wrote a whole lot about this one here. @TheSnakeRecords
