2013 Favorites: #11 Snailface – Snailface IV
Ah, Snailface. The tongue in cheek but love in their hearts side project of current and former members of Kowloon Walled City, Snailface convene every few years to record something that makes them happy. This time around, they made an album about camping and its perils, in a glorious pastiche of late 70s and early 80s Album-Oriented Radio stalwarts. Do you like .38 Special and Billy Squier and Kansas and Supertramp and The Cars? Do you long to hear not one but two songs about Christopher McCandless, the young man who died alone in the Alaskan wilderness? Do you wonder why I’m asking you all these questions? Do you drink deer blood from a can?
YES. YES. YES. YES.
