Brooklyn-by-way-of-Columbia Salt Cathedral have quickly proven themselves to be one of our favorite new artists from 2013. In fact, we liked them so much we invited them to be a featured artist in our Pairings Box; we included their debut EP in our list of 2013’s Top EPs; and we continue to blast their jams in our home regularly. And their latest release (a b-side from their self-titled EP) is yet another example of why we love them so much. The thoughtful, swaggering groove is built from a shifting, irregular rhythm and swirling guitar riffs to accompany Juliana Ronderos’ bright, lovely vocals. It’s beautifully textured, thoughtfully composed, and still incredibly catchy. Take a listen.
The self-titled EP is available to purchase from their Bandcamp (until they’re sold out).
