Memphis's Snowglobe plays an entrancing blend of cosmic American music that owes as much to pioneering psychedelic country/pop legends like the Byrds and Gram Parsons as it does to modern-day fellow travelers like the Flaming Lips.

Formed by guitarist-vocalists Tim Regan and Brad Postlethwaite, who have been pals since high school, the duo briefly relocated to Athens, Georgia, the East Coast headquarters of sorts for the Elephant 6 Collective, before returning to Memphis and finalizing their current lineup. The band's brand-new effort, Doing the Distance, which was released by Spain's acclaimed Houston Party Records (European home to the likes of the Postal Service and Iron and Wine), is a rich tapestry of warm, trippy sounds, enhanced with strings, piano, horns, and chimes. Don't miss their show at Capsule with local alt-county favorites the Dreadful Yawns. The two like-minded groups formed a friendship last fall when they played together in Memphis.
