Mixtape #75 by Fresh Snow


Fresh Snow stole our hearts last year with Won, an EP of EPic proportions. The Toronto based quartet seamlessly incorporates elements of krautrock, noise, psych rock and melodic pop to create a truly innovative, powerful and entrancing sound. With a much anticipated second album due out on Friday, we asked them to put together a mixtape for us of some of the artists and bands that have inspired them and the heady mix they sent us offers a peek at the myriad influences at work in their own music. Make sure you grab their album, and right now, press play and crank up the volume!
