Salt Cathedral :: "Move Along"
Growing a pleasant IDM-inspired creation out of the same sonic territory that Tune-Yards so dominated two years ago, Brooklyn's Salt Cathedral build something both angular and vaguely tropical on latest offering, "Move Along". Friscalating guitars follow sparse bass lines, the whole arrangement held together by Juliana Ronderos' fecund, crystalline vocal. Ronderos masters the stepped pitches of the song's latter half, chirping up and down with aplomb while whirring drum loops race behind her. Distant at times, but entirely charming, "Move Along" grows, lives and dies in the three-and-a-half-minute confines of the most basic pop songs.
