Herein I give you latest in band hype fail. I remember reading about nu-synth act Salem at hipster hype-machine 20jazzfunkgreats last year. They had this to say about the band:
"If you’ve even heard one song by Salem, you’ll know what we mean: Dubstep’s violent shadow, malevolently through ruined city streets, slight rainfall, flickering street lamps, cobalt clouds glowing in the pitch dark skies."
The popular blog compared them to, and I quote:
"...listening to John Carpenter disco 12″ edits backwards at 33rpm."
And even to such greats as minimal experimental duo Suicide and junkie siren Nico. (WTF)
Well thanks to the good people at The Levi's Company and Fader Magazine, us norms can finally experience this wonderful and exciting new band for ourselves and have our minds blown! Ready?!
WOW! The future of music is a gross dude in a Detroit Tigers hat totally jamming out on a drumpad!
(PS. This is NOT a St. Sanders "shred" video.)
UPDATE: Fader Mag makes themselves look silly by defending the booking of this band and backpedals on their own statements concerning the band being booed off the stage.
