Like A Book adds to Miss Massive Snowflake's expanding library of curious and clever progressive pop songs. The charismatic and playful band experiment with orchestral jazz, candy pop, and free-spirited psychedelic rock to create a unique musical vernacular. Miss Massive Snowflake marry traditional familiarities and edgy concepts with catchy energetic rock, and craft deceptively intricate songs. Like a Book blends angled radio hits, a jazz sensibililty, and boy band punk.   
   With an emotive voice, compelling lyrics, and sounding at times like a west coast Talking Heads, a Bowie, or a Hendrix, Shane de Leon sings short story song blasts over an adventurous mix, a sort of Flaming Lips / Minutemen mash up. There is an inspiring fire that burns through Like a Book's 10 tracks and 33 minutes. The drums and bass drive while horns punch into screwed groove guitar riffs producing beautiful, moving, and intellectually satisfying rock music.   
   The songwriter, guitarist, and creative director, Shane de Leon, started the band in 2004 as a family recording project while still in Portland art rock collective, Rollerball. MMS's three early eps and first full length, Queen's Headache, were a mix of electronica, hip hop, and acoustic folk. In 2007 Jeanne Kennedy Crosby entered the band on bass and began moving the band towards a more rock based sound. After the sophomore album Songs about Music was released in 2010, Andy Brown (Jessamine, Fontanelle, Paint and Copter) began drumming for the band. Jacopo Andreini (L'Enfance Rouge, Squarcicatrici, Tsigoti) provides horns, percussion, and tour support.   Miss Massive Snowflake has played around the West Coast regularly and toured Europe three times. The band will be on tour in the US and Europe in Spring and Summer 2012.   
   Recorded by Andy Brown at Alchemy Lab in Portland, Oregon and Jacopo Andreini in Nipozzano, Italy. Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic. Artwork by Starbage Hands
