Snowman Release Album Details … We Think

Snowman have posted what appears to be a tracklisting and album title for their third LP – the follow-up to their M+N Critics Poll-winning The Horse, The Rat And The Swan (2009) – on MySpace.

Unless we’re completely wrong and they’ve posted their shopping list, it’ll be called ∆bsence (pronounced “Absence”, we think), and will feature eight tracks:

  1. Snakes & Ladders
  2. Hyena
  3. White Wall
  4. Séance
  5. Memory Lost
  6. A Vanishing Act
  7. Absence

No word on a release date just yet, but we do know the following:

– The album was recorded in various locations throughout London with fellow Aussie Aaron Cupples (The Drones, Dan Kelly, Subaudible Hum). – It’s been described as “creamier and dreamier than the last. Still rhythmically driven, but also awash in textural walls of sound”. – It was written over two years in 10 different countries and explores the themes of “displacement, dislocation and the removal of oneself from one’s home”. – Frontman Joe McKee: “It's about tearing yourself away from the things you love in order to ... move on. It's about not turning into this thing that you have created. Keeping that distance. Killing the myth.” – It’ll be out some time in the future through Dot Dash.
