Meow Meow (MM) is a highly obscure art wreck which released a single album (as far as I'm concerned) called Snow Gas Bone almost one decade ago, at 2004. Apart from the cute-but-silly name, the four-piece lead by guitarist Kirk Hellie is very guitar-driven, flerting with Shoegaze soundscapes very often, although I'm not sure if it can classified like this in its most purist sense. The overal feeling in this album is sunny and joyful, full of easy-listening melodies, however it's possible to notice some underneath darkness creeping deep inside MM's inner realms, as if things aren't quite right as they look like, or as if it's suffering from too much sunshine exposition. Or maybe is it a result from dropping the head while very young? I can't tell.
That's why I'm sharing Snow Gas Bones with you. Such gem of Shoegaze crossover manifestation, specially at times where the genre seemed to be totally buried and forgotten from the collective inconsciousness, should be spread around every corner of the cosmos. That's your mission of today!
