Myriad moments that seem long-lasting, now exist as shortcomings. But in that static lays a young group of musicians who smother times tide, not the other way around. Relentlessly thrashing melodies atop americana love letters. Songs of manic release. Soft and loose, gaining momentum till the moment they suffocate their calm with screams from scratchy throats and shrapnel distortion.
Born from spare time and dead ends, the project is both compilation and mission statement. A story of young men embracing the certainty of change while desiring stability. Odes formed from courses un-diverted; rivers and riffs running deep. Dreams and days of loved ones moving on, flippant gestures unforgotten.
"Power pop group Snuff Redux coax out slickly woozy, sun-lathered guitar lines and highly dazed and enthused hooks. It’s easy-listening kinda-punk for sunny day cruisin’ on things with wheels.” -The Stranger
"Surprise is rare in a critic’s life: when your job revolves around consuming an inordinately large amount of music, it’s impossible not to become jaded to the angles, familiar with the moves, and depressed by the derivativeness. But I’ll be damned if Bod’s Party Drug EP didn’t surprise me. Opener “Gigantor” bobs merrily between a jazzy Casiotone intro, lo-fi prog, Elephant 6-repping psych, and a killer “whoa oh oh” power-pop chorus. It sounds like a mess on paper, and it sort of is, on record, but there are hints of an auteur’s mad method undergirding the whole thing. The rest of the release is more straightforward, but the band can’t help sneaking in grace notes of off-balance alchemy: the screeching dub effects on closing scorcher “Motorcycle Song,” achingly pretty strings playing tag with overdriven grunge on “Secret Lives.” Seattle could use more bands this inventive and melody-minded." -The Stranger
"Combining out-of-the-box psychedelic elements, drenched in reverb and glistening guitars, Flaural is buoyant and introspective. Flaural make great use of their predecessors techniques to develop a contemporary sound that is hypnotic and soothing. Although the group is a young one, having formed in early 2015, the concept for the 'Thin King' EP is polished, cohesive and sets a solid ground of potential." -Indie Rock Reviews, LA
"Invisible Hand’s third album, I’m Here Right Now, came out last July but we’re only now falling under its spell. “Sweet Action” finds the quartet balancing its power-pop and psych-rock sensibilities in an urgent, elevated jam that’s equally tight and expansive." -City Arts Magazine
