Snack Truck - Spacial Findings 1-7


I first came across Snack Truck's 2004 release Harpoon years back while living in Michigan. Solid release, but it was borderline screamo on a few tracks, and I eventually forgot about them. I happened to move to their hometown of Richmond, VA about a year and a half ago, and I caught their set when they opened for Monotonix last October. I was incredibly pleased by their new sound. Dueling drummers, calculated guitar noodling, epic progressions, and, most importantly, no more screaming. This is some highly entertaining instrumental goodness for fans of Battles, Don Caballero, or Hella. Spacial Findings 1-7 contains 4 tracks from a previously released 7" plus 3 previously unreleased tracks from the same recording session. It's a quick listen and will definitely have you looking forward to their next release. Quite easily one of the best bands from RVA. Below is a video for the track "Blake Jones in Space". Buy it here.
