Product Notes

On Miss Massive Snowflake's fourth album, So Sweet, Shane de Leon weaves stories of heartbreak, loss of trust, family, and social media into eight songs that take us through an exploration of how love can sometimes walk a fine line of pain. The album's first single 'Hard To Know' is an upbeat song showing that it's not always easy to know where to go when you can't quite figure out where you're at. So Sweet shows a moodier side of Miss Massive Snowflake and features the Nina Simone cover 'Turn Me On'. Miss Massive Snowflake is a charismatic and playful band based in Portland, OR who enjoys playing live and has performed over 400 shows in 8 countries. The band is currently on a two year nonstop tour going through the end of 2015. De Leon was a member of experimental rock band Rollerball/Rllrbll for a decade and has collaborated with 31 Knots, Black Heart Procession, Solex, Steve McKay, and OVO. With an emotive voice and compelling lyrics, de Leon is a storyteller at heart and is often compared to David Byrne, Bowie, Jonathon Richmond, and the Flaming Lips. The band started as a solo recording project in 2004. Jeanne Kennedy Crosby joined on bass in 2007, and shortly after Andy Brown (Jessamine, Fontanelle) joined on drums. 'de Leon reduced rock 'n' roll to it's basics: two or three chords, hip-shaking swagger and great songs. His affecting voice and abrasively fun playing distilled rock 'n' roll history, from Bo Diddley to the Buzzcocks and far beyond, to the essence that made you fall in love with it in the first place.' Tucson Weekly 'Seriously, this is like a great book that you can't put down. Putting this on makes you HAVE to listen to the next song, and the next...until you're out of songs, completely jazzed... an intoxicating rock, jazzy, psyche sound. IT'S AWESOME!!! Listen!' KFJC 'With MMS, it's best to expect the unexpected... I don't know what to call it, but I like it a lot.' The Stranger 'The kind of curious kook every staid gathering could use... a Dovid Bowie on steroids overcroon to an unaffected Calvin Johnson naivete... an off kilter sensibility - a break from the mold.' Jack Rabid Big Takeover 'A psychedelic anachronism projected through a contemporary pop prism' Simon Godley 'The lithe complexity of the Sea and the Cake... The episodic nature of the songs makes them seem like Minuteman spurts, a pamphlet in thirty seconds... enjoyable as well as thought provoking' 'quirky, simple pop songs about his inability to write a book 'that's any good,'... MMS never ceases to make the odd invitingly catchy.' Willamette Week '15 mind blowingly exciting tracks with more anarchic wit, invention and intelligence than a decade of NME Awards tours' The Devil has the Best Tuna 'Miss Massive Snowflake is the Partridge Family of weird. Quirky, simple pop songs about his inability to write a book 'that's any good,'... MMS never ceases to make the odd invitingly catchy' Willamette Week 'Throughout the disc you can hear shades of Zappa, Robert Wyatt, Thomas Dolby, and other people whose singular vision has given them a unique voice. ' Terrascope Rumbles.
