Snowboarder

I'd been sitting on Snowboarder's album for way too long, and when I finally got around to learning more about them, they were no longer a band. The brainchild of Jason Kick of Maus Haus, Michael Stasis (whose solo work has been featured on the Bay Bridged), and David Nichols, Snowboarder's only album is a concept album about, well, snowboarding. The idea is pretty funny by itself, but is hilarious when you learn that none of Snowboarder's members are actually snowboarders. The album hits a variety of pop styles and eras, teetering between brilliance and pure weirdness on every track. Sadly, Michael Stasis has moved back to his native Philadelphia, leaving only these seven wonderfully odd songs behind. Listen to what's left of Snowboarder below.
