Snowden. Atlanta four-piece Snowden are not to be trifled with. The group takes seriousness seriously, as evidenced by its slow, caustic tales of lost loves and broken dreams. New wave guitars mesh with that infectious lock-step drumming the raver kids adore so much, resulting in a hybrid sound that’s neither too derivative nor too quirky. Lead singer/guitarist Jordon Jeffares’ moan is formidable, at times recalling the Cure’s Robert Smith – that is, if Smith were a Southern boy.
