Snowpony's second album was all but ignored upon its release -- it Into The Heart Of Dalston - Snowpony - Sea Shanties For Spaceships the misfortune of coming out on September 11, -- which is a real shame for the band because Sea Shanties for Spaceships is worlds better than their disappointing debut, The Slow-Motion World of Snowpony.
Less monochromatically dark than the debut, this album's sound is more in keeping with its title. Like Laika or Moonshake, Snowpony blends shards of guitar with trip-hoppy electronic beats and layers of vintage synthesizers into a sound that's alternately alluring and harsh.
More the former than the latter this time, with the glorious ebb and flow of the nearly minute "Pleasure Gardens" the album's highlight. As before, Katherine Gifford's dull vocals and unmemorable lyrics are the band's least-interesting feature, but since they're much less prominent than on the debut, it's much easier to overlook this basic flaw.
