Five Pound Snap are a four-piece out of Detroit that blend the grit, sweat, and spilled-out strummers of keyed-up rock ‘n’ roll with smoothness of jazz and the attitude of funk. Some bands are throttle-pushers, some are groove merchants, some are mood-molders, Five Pound Snap is all of that, and even something else that we haven’t quite put our finger on…

Five Pound Snap ~ “Lady Gets High”


“Lady Gets High” is a single from their forthcoming full length album White Birch Lakes. You can see the band perform this Friday night over in Ferndale at the Loving Touch, with Virginia Violet and the Rays, and AM People.

This song opens up with the tight hooks of post-millennial indie-rock, the cluster-clap of 60’s garage and the throaty howl of psychedelic-blues incantations. What continues to jut and juke its way with urgent riffs and cavalier stairwell-descending swiftness segues with subtlety and smoothness after the 2nd chorus, just as those drums, keyboard and guitars are swelling into a coiled busyness of harmonic tension, till the levee breaks and it spills its way in to a bridge where the saxophone shines, soars, splays and scintillates.

After this Friday’s show at the Loving Touch, the band is going to be hitting the road, warming themselves up for the official album release party, later in March.  This is one of those jump-on-the-bandwagon-now-while-you-can- kind of moments…because if this video is any indication, their collective engines are revved up; ready for the long ride.

The beautiful thing about the kinds of songs that Tanager make are how layered they are… These are guitars that envelop you, drums that pull you, melodic phrases that levitate you (and no, I’m not on drugs as I write this)… Those ethereal traits have always distinguished a Tanager song, a hybrid of coarse distortion

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

It is heartrending to see that message, reverberated through the past and into the present. Cynics may be tempted to ask, “Have we really made any progress?”. Yet, above the calls of protest and activism, the gallery is also filled with silence, waiting for the viewer’s response to the question, “Will you change it?”

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
