Snow Roller - XXL LP
Snow Roller's XXL LP! Released July 11 2017. This is a split release with the homies at Near Mint Records!
Vinyl comes in 3 variants- Red Marble (MNE exclusive), Mint Green / Deep Purple (Near Mint Exclusive), and Milky Clear w/ Green and Purple Splatter (Snow Roller exclusive). We have very limited amounts of the Near Mint and Snow Roller variants fyi! Here's a nice little blurb written about this album.
"Rambo: First Blood is too sincere, but when you get to Rambo: First Blood Part II, that's when it gets good." Like any movie sequel worth its salt, Collin Kritz knows what narrative threads to continue untangling with Snow Roller and which to leave behind. In many ways, XXL offers the same locked-in, smoked-out approaches to 90s college rock revivalism practiced on their debut What's the Score?, but with less of a wink and more a nudge in a new direction. Songs like "Man-Child" simmer and stab, while "The Scott Warner Discount" nests its aggression in apathy. Herein lies the spectrum that this Portland three-piece volleys between: slouching and standing up for their own future foibles. And that's worth a repeat adventure in itself.
