Performer Notes
  • Recording information: His Home At Synapse Sound (2006); Ross Skolmsvold's Red Lantern Studio, Portland, OR (2006).
  • The default comparison for the full-length debut by Portland neo-psych quartet the Pink Snowflakes is the Flaming Lips, and while there is some similarity (especially to that band's chaotic early days), the more apposite points of departure are long-running Milwaukee psychedelic pop cult heroes Plasticland and the long-running and prolific Seattle dream pop act the Green Pajamas. Both of those bands balance their tendency to full-on psych rock noise freakouts with distinct pop sensibilities, and the Pink Snowflakes are similarly accessible. If anything, in fact, this quartet has a better handle on pop hooks than either of those bands. Even lengthy experiments like "Circus Formed the Last Window with Birds" and the sprawling, wordy 13-minute epic "The Queen of Heaven's Comin' Down (Eternal Hallucinations in the Dream Fabric)" are more melodic and tuneful than the preposterous titles suggest. When that brand of groovy head music collides with Andrew Rossi's more straightforwardly catchy pop/rock on tracks like the trippy garage rock of the opening "Like Ice Cream" and the wistful "It Was the Apples," the combination makes for some of the most delightful psychedelic pop since the heyday of the Elephant 6 collective. ~ Stewart Mason
