There are a number of reasons to be very grateful for Salem (or indeed their typeset variant SALEM). Whether this sinister Michigan trio are classified as a re-emergence of darkwave, or as drag, or illwave (a variant of chillwave, of course), or witch - or indeed wytch - house, they deliver their genre-straddling and innovative debut LP without any of the smugness that stems from beating ones imitators to the punch. And, unlike so many of their tail-grabbers - a notable exception being the very worthy and likeminded ensemble White Ring - they do it under a pronounceable guise, one free from symbology, if not allusion.

Morbidly carving out its niche from the belly of shoegaze, the aggressive end of dark dance and down-tempo rap King Night is surprising and entirely powerful - something that will come as no surprise to those that have been following the band's ascent from the controversial depths of the Yes, I Smoke Crack EP to the Water EP, from which only the King Night-highlight "Redlights" now makes the grade.

From SALEM's evocative choice of band name to their foreboding artwork, from their edgy promotional shots to their sanity-questioning vocals, from their echo-y compression to their clanking industrionics King Night is seriously dark stuff. It combines the creeping claustrophobia of Burial's Untrue, with the alien washes of The Cocteau Twins, only with more bass - lots more bass.

If Sleigh Bells appeared to own 2010's speaker-crumpling market, take note of what crushes the levels precisely 22 seconds into the titular opener. This sort of raw theatric shows just how puerile

Good golly these guys are so cool in everyway im not.In my furtive imagination i am the 4th member of this band.The album is cool,amazing theres only 3 other reviews?That just means officially we are the hippest reviewers on amazon.stick that in your pipe.All disconnected dead eyed mumbled vocals,distorted slurring raps over narcoleptic beats.Fits perfectly with my naive aesthetics of contemporary.A cool record for cool people.or people who like to think there cool like moi.10 out of 10.

A lot of negative things have been written about Salem as a group, and to go into listening to this with an opinon on them from these musings would be wrong. What you have here is an incredibly dense record, despite the bomblast wall of sound, and you will get something new out of every listen. It is mixed perfectly and has a variety in its tracks.

The difference is what you have read to what you have heard is night and day.
