Taking inspiration from Carnaval, Brazils yearly celebration of the tawdry and sinful, Salt is both musical celebration and lyrical steam bath. From the opening "Habite Em Mim" (translated "Inhabit Me") to the closing title track (which contains the lines "She covers herself in honey/Stretches but wont succumb"), this is a visceral, sexually-charged piece of work.
Produced by the usual team of bassist Melvin Gibbs, electronic wizards Kassin and Berna Ceppas, and Lindsay, Salt contains an intoxicating blend of harmony and instrumentation. "Into Shade" may be the richest, most elegant song in Lindsays catalog, full of lush string arrangements and guitar flutters. "Habite Em Mim" and "Personagem" will likely be mined by hip-hop producers for their stark, throbbing beats. "Kamo (Dark Stripe)" is a sleepy, undulating mix of multi-cultural pop. As usual, Lindsays voice is soft and seductive, beckoning listeners in both English and Portuguese, with little more than a reedy whisper.
Its altogether fitting that Arto Lindsay has titled his record after one of the most basic and organic substances in Mother Natures spice rack. Salt is a wild and surprising ingredient, examining the mysticism of human desire without ever losing sight of the hook. Add a pinch to your daily listening; your senses will be thankful.
