3016646, Who is SAULT, and how did they drop such a dope debut album?
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Tue Jun-04-19 03:06 PM
Not sure which former ex-OKPer I follow on twitter mentioned the band SAULT but they threw their name out with AOTY so I had to give them a spin. Phenomenal Album. I started looking online to figure out who they are and I got nothing from the googles. No picture of the band members. No bio. Only thing I got was some Scandanivan Metal band which I am pretty sure is a differnt band by the same name.

Anyway, I am not sure how you even classify them genre-wise but this stuff you have got to hear.

3016678, kinda thought that was implied by searching for it after 30 seconds
Posted by Ray_Snill, Wed Jun-05-19 06:16 PM
but yes I'm digging this joint big time. haven't had a chance to put it on the player to bump in the car yet but it goes hard on the Bose joints.

When they announced they were releasing the LP on vinyl, I set their instagram account to send me notifications so I wouldn't miss it. I wonder if they're numbered.

She actually posted a link to the album on her instagram... so maybe a nod/wink?

I'm hoping she's prepping a full album too as she's dropped two singles this year so far.

3017903, this is a bit random...
Posted by thebigfunk, Sun Aug-18-19 05:37 PM
but I checked out a new album from someone named Maria Usbeck, the album is called Envejeciendo ... and happened to put it on after listening to the Sault record for the nth time... although the overall sound is very different, the general vibe is a bit similar and it has some similar characteristics -- really sparse, percussion-centered arrangements and simply delivered vocals. Only listened to the Usbeck record twice so far but I'm enjoying it.

Won't go as far as to say "If you like Sault you'll like this," but the two albums make an interesting pair and it might be worth checking out. The Usbeck record is on Apple Music, I'm assuming it's available on the other streaming venues as well.

"There’s next to no information on SAULT, except that they’re a trio (that features London based artist Dean “Inflo” Wynton Josiah who’s written for the likes of Jungle and Little Simz) signed to Forever Living Originals, and that their debut album ‘5’ is an absolute blast."

3019153, TAKE MY FUCKING MONEY!!!...
Posted by CyrenYoung, Fri Sep-27-19 10:23 AM
..couldn't order that vinyl fast enough.

The funk. The grooves. The vibe.

Two stellar albums in one calendar year?

Top notch production, incredibly soulful vocals.

Flawless execution.

*Back with a full review later.

3019154, So SAULT is 2 for 2
Posted by bc, Fri Sep-27-19 10:43 AM
Love the vibe.
Feels like an extension of the 5 sessions but with some new flavors and collaborators mixed in.

I wish I knew their backstory. I'm interested to know the timing of creating 5 vs. creating 7.

3019180, this is actually just the 2 of them with no collaborators
Posted by Ray_Snill, Sat Sep-28-19 06:54 AM
all 10 songs. Threat is pretty much my everything right now.

The SAULT duo actually did the whole Little Simz Grey Area joint, which is incredibly nice.

3019179, This is really good

3019158, challenging people to focus on the music...
Posted by CyrenYoung, Fri Sep-27-19 10:54 AM
..its one of the most endearing qualities about this group.

While the curiosity certainly fuels the fire, it doesn't undermine the overall effort. At this rate, I hope we never get more than the music.

*skatin' the rings of saturn*


..and miles to go before i sleep...
3019160, agreed.
Posted by LeroyBumpkin, Fri Sep-27-19 11:49 AM
The mystery is definitely part of the appeal.
