King Night by Salem
Released: Sep 2010
Label: IAmSound
The chief exemplars of witch-house, Illinois' shadow-dwelling Salem step from blog buzz into the limelight with their debut album. "Drag," their own term for their music, speaks to the sluggish tempos they've borrowed from chopped 'n' screwed Southern hip-hop, which also inspired their narcotic, pitched-down raps. But it's not all murk: The high end is awash in garish trance stabs, while cathedral-sized reverb smears a soothing balm over their discordant, confrontational mix of styles
