Indulge in Snakeoil's stoned soul picnic...

Snake Oil is a collaboration between roughly a dozen people in New Haven County, Western Massachusetts, and New York City. In 1892, the year of Walt Whitman’s death, the circle rose up, fully formed, over the fringes of a blank landscape. The live incarnation for this show includes members (past and present) of Weigh Down, Titles, Mountain Movers, Latitude/Longitude, Charles Burst, Meridians, etc.

Atrina makes music that is equal parts minimalist melodicism, counterpunctal cacophony, and decibel-pushing dissonance. Angular, but accessible. Complex, yet catchy. Eclectic, and electrifying - Atrina makes ears ring, hearts pound, and toes tap.

In the transitions, Shaki will spin jams you've never heard but wish you had. You may think, how have I lived so long without this?

That Erkin Koray track is fantastic. I just scoured YouTube looking for more. The Turkish spin on rock really works!
