about

In the Heart of the City, Snaex's third and most ambitious album to date, tackles modern life in the throes of gentrification and neo-liberalism. It broaches these weighty issues from a place of heartfelt care and concern, avoiding didactic analysis and heavy-handed speech in favor of poetic examination and a powerful sense of hopefulness. The music itself is further afield than the two-guitar arrangements of previous Snaex efforts, with a wealth of unearthly sounds and psycho-acoustic space brought by lo-fi recording guru, Caleb Mulkerin (Big Blood, Swans, O'death). The resulting album is one that feels like much more than the sum of its parts; it feels like a statement of purpose, like a still-wet canvas worked over by a master draughtsman, like perhaps it's even about something, from beginning to end.
