DOWNLOAD: Snorkel - Stop Machine
For me, the band Snorkel represented a time in my life when I was discovering the kraut element of music, their music’s all syncopated, differentiating drum structure with a massive slab of jazz enthusiasm and a distinctly industrial edge. After being recommended Can by a friend (shout to the Nomquat) and being force fed sheer noise and black metal in close confines, I stumbled across the Slowfoot label, probably due in large part to Robert Logan. A lot of close shadowing of the Slowfoot label followed that initial interset.
Glass Darkly, the debut album from the Snorkel collective, was a densely packed atmospheric affair, one that textures you wholly, sucking your attention completely, and with the announcement of their second album, Stop Machine, they’ve uploaded a free taster by the same name that displays a more energetic twist.
