A Snakefarm bio
i think anyone who likes robin holcomb will particularly dig this album. (email@example.com)
Snakefarm's debut album consists of radical treatments of old, traditional songs. Dark, but not in a gloomy way, more in an atmospheric, moody way. Trip-hoppy, electronic. Very cool. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Comments about live performance:
Snakefarm showcased a little while ago in Los Angeles at Luna Park and the songs were more memorable seen performed. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I am so thrilled to have a new Snakefarm album. Songs From My Funeral has received steady play over the last 12 years, both on my stereo and on my iPod (a real measure of love since I do not listen to most of my physical CDs digitally). My Halo at Half-Light has more great reinterpretations of traditional songs. The aesthetic is similar, but it's less electronic (though "Darlin' Corey" is a notable exception). Highlights include "Little Maggie," "Sadie," and "Omie Wise (You Forgot to Answer)." (JoAnn Whetsell)
