The West Coast is about to have a Snuffaluffagus sighting

When I was little, Snuffaluffagus was Big Bird's "imaginary" friend, none of the Sesame Street adults believed he exists.

This summer, Snuffaluffagus (the band) is coming to a town near you (if you're on the west coast anyway) to promote their new album Brazil Wood Poetry.

Snuffaluffagus, a musical endeavor created by songwriter Chris Braciszewski, was born out of a home studio project in his hometown San Diego and, over the last couple of years, has progressed into a collective of collaborating musicians basing their creative stylings around central ideas and concept albums. Snuffaluffagus' first Gnome Records release of 2008 (Aminals EP) is a prelude to a folk fairy tale (Aminals LP 2009) and is just one of many concepts that strive to promote childlike imaginative states. Developing the theme further, the Aminals LP was available as a coloring book (sold out for the time being) and an album. Snuffaluffagus has spent most of late 2009 and the first half of 2010 piecing together their next album, "Brazil Wood Poetry", a collage and tribute to the golden era of Brazilian tropicalia. Continuing the tradition of moving around the country, the album started in the San Francisco-based analog tape-equipped rooms of Tiny Telephone with Jay Pellici and moved south into a converted barn studio in San Diego. From there, the band moved out east to New York where the orchestral arrangements blossomed. After finishing the album in San Diego, the band will embark on a quest up the coast and into Canada. This album will be released via their own nu-digital label, "Wizard Spit".
