Salt

2022 Remaster + Vinyl Reissue

The 2002 debut Forget Cassettes record, Instruments of Action, blended punk, riot grrl, post-rock and channeled them into a visceral and raw explosion. The 2006 follow-up, Salt, evolved that sound into a highly produced - but no less visceral - version. Salt was never pressed to vinyl but with this special 16-year birthday reissue, fans can finally enjoy the entire album and it's b-sides as one cohesive package.

Salt Press

  • ...channels the sort of whisper-to-shriek Polly Harvey vocal histrionics and napalm-spraying guitar to make a thousand indie boys tremble with a strange mix of adolescent lust and abject terror.

    — NME

    2007 Review

  • Noisily melodic garage-punk trio fronted by tiny singer / guitarist Beth Cameron, whose purring wails falls somewhere between PJ Harvey and Karen O.

    — Spin

    72 Hours in Nashville

  • It’s pop melodies built on top of a brutal foundation of cadaverous bass lines, dripping snatching, guitar lines and waterfalls of cymbals. It’s rock music is what it is.

    — Drowned in Sound

    2007 Review

  • Salt is more dynamic, more energetic, more raw than its predecessor...

    — VisualMusic

    2006 Review

  • Singer Beth has that certain charisma that makes you sit up and take notice - similar to Chan Marshall's early elaborate works.

    2006 Review

  • Flawless pop is paired here, PJ Harvey not entirely unrelated, with brilliant rock instrumentation and forces the listener, just like Cameron herself, to the ground.

    — Plate Tests

    2007 Review

  • When Salt’s jagged, addictively hooky triumvirate of 'Quiero Quieres', 'Salt And Syncope', and 'Tabula Rasa' become the mega-hits they deserve to be, we doubt you’ll be interested in anyone’s advice.

    — Penny Black Music

    2007 Review

  • ...an ear toward emotional intensity through a balance of shredding volume and pastoral quietude.
