Salem

GvsB blog radio airs today at noon EST (and again at midnight) on Sirius Left of Center. We've got a bunch of good new stuff this week, including these two tracks by Salem, a band I've been listening to quite a bit since finding them over at 20 Jazz Funk Greats. "Sweat" is a dark, haunted jam that'll appeal to those waiting for new material from the Knife, and "Brustreet" is a stunning and surprisingly affecting re-imagining of Bruce Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" (it's better than it sounds, trust me). Band to watch, etc.

mp3:
Salem Sweat
Salem Brustreet
