Described in a publicity note as "a compilation of assorted b-sides and apocrypha," Snowglobe's Me and You begins with a rough choral piece in which the bandmembers sing, "I can't think of anything to say/I can't think of anything to play." The disc, with 29 fragmentary tracks, is basically a work reel, a collection of musical and lyrical ideas in bits and pieces, some of which sound like they might become songs, or parts of songs, at some point in the future. There are demos of real songs, in some cases with what are probably dummy lyrics ("[mac]aroni and cheese," repeat the singers in place of real words in the 29th track), and there are sonic experiments in feedback and studio humor. All of this must mean more to Snowglobe than it possibly could to outside listeners, which begs the question of how it ever got out of the studio. But then, sillier records have been released by more prominent artists than this.
