    I'll greatly miss this band. Every single song of theirs is incredible. So glad I got the chance to see them live a few years back.

    The Sun II is an absolute masterpiece. Snakadaktal broke up right when I discovered them, which was devastating.

    I've noticed that snakadaktal has a unique sound, to where most of the similar artists come nowhere near their sound...weird how the list could be a tad bit misleading. I say they sound similar to the xx, beach house, snowmine, daughter and foals.

    Just found this album and they've split up. Whattttttttt!!! It's certainly tickling the Total Life Forever-era Foals gland though.
