1. SALEM is a US-midwest band from Traverse City, Sound is composed of dark ambient but with elements of shoegaze, psychedelic dubstep and trip-hop. Some of the hype about Salem is perhaps the mystery that surrounds them. Much is unknown about the artist(s). Self-promoted through their two (eerily indescribable) Myspace profiles, Salem was quickly found by the likes of 20JGF, NME and brooklynvegan. They are a band, consisting of one girl and two guys, from Chicago/Michigan/NY. Their music has been compared to a cross between The Knife and Burial. So far they’ve released two CD-R’s on the Texas imprint, Disaro, (both out of print) and a 7” on the Canadian label, AcéPhale.

    Went to see Salem (Jack+John) on Saturday in SF. Pretty good show but they were really unsure as to if they're ever dropping another album or content. (I asked after the show)

    I think I've heard most (if not all, I have 113 tracks) of the unreleased stuff and I think most of it isn't very good.

    @TeenageDeathBoy they made not a little bit but a whole lot of great music: though most of it are raw unreleased cuts (but i guess that's what most of salem fans like in their music)
