Saltland: "Unholy"


It has been years now since Montreal's Constellation Records shed the reductive label "Godspeed's label." Lately, Constellation has become a crucial axis around which experimental, jazz, and new music have intersected with independent and underground rock aesthetics, resulting in modern classics like Matana Roberts' COIN COIN Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres. Next up for the label is the debut release from Rebecca Foon under solo moniker, Saltland. With some assistance from percussionist Jamie Thompson (Islands), Saltland fuses looped cello and ethereal vocals into an expressive whole that draws on traditions of dream pop and drone. "Unholy" is the first video from I Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us, an abstract montage of aqueous, chaotic patterns expanding and contracting, fitting with the atypically rhythmic, driving track. I Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us features guest contributions from Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld among others.

Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us is out on May 14.
