"what's in a name?"

at 1:30 am on tuesday morning, i left chico, ca and began the 10-hour drive home to salt lake because i had to work the cafe for the weatherbox/jet lag gemini show. they brought along a songwriter that travels by the name of snuffaluffagus. stop: we agree, a suspect name, but portland-based songwriter chris braciszewski makes up for it as soon as he begins singing. it's one of those deals where the music is so good it doesn't matter what you call it.

snuffiq is in the vein of beirut, devendra banhart or castanets: soulful lyrics sung with original style. some of you may be deterred by those comparisons, but snuffiq's delivery is on pitch without compromising on the creativity.



Totally thrilled to have two fine musicians, and wonderful human beings here with us on "Short Memory. Snuffaluffagus and Asher in the Rye played the entire hour, and were just the kind of music I was hoping for for a mellow evening. Snuffaluffagus weaves together all kinds of tales from the imagination, in a way that is playful, unique and soulful. Great high tenor voice with tons of guitar loops and curious samples. Asher in the Rye deals in themes of love and heartbreak, and the pensive aftermath of all that. Her lyrics are witty and lively with a mellow guitar to temper it all. Great show altogether.

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.
