Snowflake Midnight: 5CD Deluxe Edition


  • Formed in Buffalo, New York, in 1989, MERCURY REV quickly grew to become leading figures in left field alternative rock. Earlier albums veered towards experimental, off-kilter psychedelia but by the end of the decade, the band had developed their own brand of serene, piano-based Americana with the acclaimed, best-selling LP Deserter’s Songs (1998).
  • Originally issued in September 2008, SNOWFLAKE MIDNIGHT was the seventh album by Mercury Rev and followed The Secret Migration (2005) and All Is Dream (2001) – both of which have already been treated to deluxe editions by Cherry Red.
  • Although the album wasn’t fanfared by any singles, the tracks ‘Senses On Fire’, ‘Butterfly's Wing’ and ‘Snowflake In A Hot World’ all enjoyed exposure on radio. Meanwhile, the vinyl edition of Snowflake Midnight was issued as a double LP with a bonus disc of remixes, entitled STRANGE ATTRACTOR. And V2 also released a 12” EP featuring further remixes.
  • Cherry Red Records are proud to unveil a deluxe 5-CD edition of this relatively recent highlight in the continuing musical story of Mercury Rev, compiled and coordinated by the band’s Jonathan Donaghue and Sean ‘Grasshopper’ Mackowiak.
  • Joining the original album are a second disc of previously unissued outtakes, entitled Hymn Of The Heavenly Snowflake, a third disc cryptically entitled Snowflakes From A Train (again, hitherto unheard) and a fourth disc of live material (again, unreleased until now). Disc 5 offers the first commercial CD outing for STRANGE ATTRACTOR, with the added bonus of those four 12” remix tracks.
  • This expanded edition of SNOWFLAKE MIDNIGHT is presented as a plush, hardbook book containing original album lyrics, lots of visuals and new sleeve-notes by acclaimed author and journalist Martin Aston.
