Boomkat Product Review:
Epic visions of cosmic North Americana from cellist Rebecca Foon, founder of Esmerine and former member of A Silver Mt Zion and Set Fire To Flames. Constellation bill her debut as Saltland as existing at the intersection of drone, no-wave, improv, dream-pop and minimalism, and point out that it was cut at her home-studio in Montreal, but don't be fooled into thinking that this is a washed-out, lo-fidelity set; it's quite the opposite, a bold, widescreen work, engineered by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire), that feels like the work of a composer and musician at the height of her powers. Handling vocals and bowed cello herself, Foon is backed up by her Esmerine compadre Jamie Thompson on percussion, programming and signal processing, with a supporting cast of players that includes Colin Stetson (Bon Iver) and Laurel Sprengelmeyer (Little Scream). From' I Thought It Was Us', which sounds like This Mortal Coil doing big, blowsy jazz-rock, to the sumptuously arranged, moonlit chamber-folk of 'But It Was All Of Us', there's plenty to get your teeth into here.
