Forget Cassettes - Salt Review

by Eric Bodrero

Progressive rock? Indie rock? Shoegazer? Who cares? All I need is a front woman who can play guitar, sing like an angel and scream like the devil and I'm all set. That's exactly what we get from Beth Cameron, who is the band's principal singer and songwriter, but is not to outdo multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Jay Leo Phillips and percussionist Aaron Ford. And for those keeping score, Aaron replaced ex-drummer Doni Shroader, who now drums for …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead.

Intimate and intensely quiet one minute and fingers-in-ears loud the next, Forget Cassettes shed many layers of skin throughout any given song, sounding like at least a five-piece band. Each song is at least five to six minutes plus, dragging us through screeching fast and eerily slow and hushed all the while.

Their previous album Instruments of Action garnered great attention in the indie rock scene, such as playing at the CMJ, gaining top 100 status on the CMJ charts, and touring with The Trail Of Dead, to name a few. However great that album was, Salt blows it away times ten. Highly recommended.
