When it comes to the mixing pot in which influence is swilled about a bit, few ‘new(er) bands’ boast as well considered a blend as Brooklyn five-piece Salt Cathedral. From the glittery frivolity of early Foals to the vocal acrobatics of fellow New Yoikers Dirty Projectors and the slight intricacy of Speck Mountain, they’ve contrived to conjure an at once inspiring concoction that’s only growing increasingly potent as we’re provided with more and more to slip down. And Move Along, their latest offering, slips down an immediate treat: “Everything I do is full of love” Juliana Ronderos reassures, only enhancing the impression of intense contemplation and effectual consideration before we’re cajoled into a befuddling D’n'B breakdown that, if extraneous, they can be exonerated of for otherwise, Move Along is another genuinely exceptional piece of off-kilt quirk-pop.
