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.

    yeah I guess they're done. Jack's social media never hints at new music. I'm Still in the Night is a nice goodbye piece I suppose.

    у меня под этой музыкой был самый ужасный бэдтрип в жизни. ночь 1 января НГ 2011 год, альбом с рипита никто не снял тогда и пришлось до полудня слушать этот пиздец, считай 11 часов где-то. в квартире ад, перед глазами чья-то залупа, в ушах ебучий салем. это был самый худший НГ в моей жизни, а мб даже и день. дурная музыка

    вы все новички, а я слушал их еще в 2010 году, например. тогда, если кто помнит, был жуткий смог в москве - и вот ничего круче и атмосфернее придумать было нельзя. так что да, самая нормальная вичуха, хотя oOOoO или как их там могли бы поспорить со своим шикарным последним альбомом.

    Are people not listening to Brewstreet? That's the best song they ever did IMO.
