Lip Talk

Lip Talk

If Art Rock and Experimental Pop had a baby beast it would be LIP TALK. The four piece from Brooklyn have sited trucks, scrap metal yards, huge clouds, and secret waterfalls as influences. There's a balance between the gritty and the beautiful. Provocative, angular, edgy, and playful, LIP TALK is sonically and compositionally adventurous. Remember the first time you saw a hot air balloon? You were holding an ice cream cone in one hand, and pointing at the majestic red thing floating in the sky with the other. Imagine - it's a cold day. The kind of brisk, crisp afternoon that has you bundled up from head to toe - swaddled like a newborn baby. Your eyes follow your breath upwards as it drifts then disappears into the cold. "It's there again," you whisper to yourself. Up in the sky the hot air ballon looks like a maraschino cherry plucked off a cheap cocktail against the grey winter sky. You see that there's a patch of blue where the clouds break up and in one corner of the sky you're reminded of the summer. Images of lemonade, diving boards, busted fire hydrants and bright hot sidewalks appear. You're standing there. Looking up at the sky. The hot air ballon begins to spin. Around and around. You hear someone say, "We like to have fun and play something akin to Rock-n-Roll."


Throughout the storied musical history of Snuffaluffgus, principal songwriter/mastermind Chris Braciszewski has dabbled in everything from folk tales involving human and animal connectivity (Aminals), Brazilian tropicalia and bossa nova movements (Brazil Wood Poetry), and free form jazz explorations (Magical Realism). Functioning both as conceptual creation and collective collaboration, Snuffy has played host to a revolving door of musicians and innovators, all the while keeping Braciszewski as its singular, spiritual center. Each release has shown Braciszewski and company stretching the limits of genre and space to create wholly new experiences at each turn.

On their latest effort, Port of the Galaxy, Snuffaluffagus take on themes both unanswerable and universal, involving deep space and human existence. The eight song synth odyssey will take listeners on a futuristic, meditative journey that flashes from apocalyptic dread ("Epoch Calypso") to exuberant wonder ("So Say So"). Taken as a whole, Port of the Galaxy may be the band's most realized and expansive effort. We are excited to release this intergalactic collection on digital and vinyl formats.
