"Snake Charmer" is one of Sapling's more quiet songs, but quiet is relative in the world of music. It's a take on the classic rhyme (you'll know it once it starts), and starts off almost folk like. And then the sonic explosion kicks in, and you just get slammed with a wall of fuzz, which includes bass clarinet by Dana Colley (Morphine). It's a song sung by guitarist/Theraminster Amber Tortorelli who attacks the simple rhyme and melody, giving it more than a little menace. It's a hypnotic force of fuzz and distortion, and it may end up becoming one of your favorite ever Sapling songs.
You can listen to "Snake Charmer" below. amor fati is due out May 7 on Sleazy Within Reason Records, with an album release party on May 7 at Starlite in Southbridge, MA with Minibeast and Crow Follow. Tickets for that show are available here. For more on Sapling, check out the band's website.
