Band of the Day: BoomSnake

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Mylynda Guthrie

“A Band One of Mylynda’s Friends Said Is Good,” Day 4 of the San Diego Music Installment!

Today I am using one of the music suggestions sent to me by a born and raised San Diegan. I haven’t had the chance to see this band live, but I have listened to them and well…I approve this message!

Any band who puts in their bio that their songwriter attempts to use his lyrics to “abolish the ego” is likely to be fairly intelligent and should be taken seriously. BoomSnake really doesn’t let you down in this assumption. Their music is not noisy or overdone. It is ambient without being boring, kind of like a SoCal Sigur Ros. When it does steer closer to songs in the pop vein, their classic style of Beatles-esque harmonies are bright and pleasant. These two (sometimes three) seem quite talented, and I regret I won’t be able to see them perform. You should, though!

Check out their MySpace profile for a whole slew of shows they have coming up on the west coast.
