"Dead Snares"

Music that speaks to your soul. Solemn, somber, with a voice that penetrates, Jeffrey Cain’s Dead Snares reels you right in from the moment he opens his mouth to sing. Speak The Language is an unfortunate album, unfortunate not because its awful, it isnt, but because it is so bleak and foreboding that it almost asks you to put it on as you make that long drive away from everything, knowing you’re never coming back - Bad Fotography

"Dead Snares – Speak the Language album review"

This band rocks big time. Their music will crush your soul, drag you through mud and also puts you in woman’s arms. It will also give you that enough amount of energy you need when drunk alone in a pub, to start moving, pretending you are sexy and assertive, pretending you know how to play a guitar, or that you can sing. - Muzikblog.com

Bio

Dead Snares is the artistic creation of Jeffrey Cain from the
band Remy Zero. Produced by Darrell Thorpe (Radiohead,
Beck, Snow & Voices) and Jeffrey Cain, Speak The
Language also features fellow Remy Zero band mates
Cedric LeMoyne playing bass alongside Remy Zero
drummer Gregory Slay, who passed away earlier this year.
Rounding out the Dead Snares line-up is multi-
instrumentalist Leslie Van Trease and keyboardist Jebin
Bruni (Aimee Mann, PIL).

One late night after a recording session in a burst of
frenzied inspiration, Cain entered the studio alone without
an agenda…“no words, no chords, no idea,” notes Jeffrey.
Three tracks emerged in first takes. Feeling unattached to
what came out of these recordings, Jeffrey titled it Dead
Snares to represent a negated trap, or one that didn’t
work. On a whim, Cain sent those tracks off anonymously
to the influential KCRW and KROQ radio stations in Los
Angeles who would both play the song “City Sparks” on
the air just a few days later. A buzz began to build and
Cain, knee-deep in other projects, found himself fielding
constant questions about the future of Dead Snares.
Friends and fans waited intently to hear the rest. Speak
The Language is Cain’s eleven song response.

Speak The Language is a swirling surge of hypnotic beats
with lyrics that are both seeking and foreboding. The
recording represents a turning point for Jeffrey Cain and
the freedom to create anew. At the same time Jeffrey
was finishing up the final Dead Snares tracks, he decided
to pick up and leave Los Angeles, where he had moved
with Remy Zero, to return to his Alabama roots. “The
humidity and history of the south play a huge part in the
music I play,” Jeffrey explains. “Speak the Language is
about true communication, having a real dialog with the
universe, our families, strangers and ourselves. It is also
about allowing things to die so that other things might
live on,” he furthers.
