146-1

Eerie sounds rarely get this sexy, but Traverse City/Chicago-based Salem certainly know how to brew up a magic mix of all that’s menacing and calming at once.  The captivating trio, made up of John Holland, Heather Marlatt, and Jack Donoghue, will release their 11-song debut, King Night, on the IAMSOUND label on September 28th.  Fans of The Knife should take note.

King Night, mixed by Dave Sardy, promises to be a cathartic journey, combining musical elements from ethereal shoegaze to Southern rap and hip-hop, haunting Houston Screw and Chicago dark electro.  This is the trio’s first full-length release, and prior to this, they’ve only released a handful of 7″ records between 2008 and 2009.
