Who's this SAULT lot then?
« on: July 04, 2019, 04:58:03 PM »
I heard Let Me Go on Mary Anne Hobbs earlier and thought it was great so decided to check them out.

They seem to be all over the streaming platforms, but there is FUCK ALL information about them anywhere, discogs don't seem to have any info on them or the label they're signed to. Their label site is useless as well.

So anyone know anything about them at all?

Ive not long half heard this on t'radio and to my uncultured ears it sounded a little bit like Beth Ditto doing some of the vocals. Possibly.

Update they've got another lp out - 7. It is good.

Still no real info. Their bandcamp seems to think they're UK though.

They have yet another album coming out, Gilles Peterson played it on his 6 music show. It's related to some of the blm stuff and seems a bit less of a fun soul party album this time, a bit slower and with more serious lyrics. He also revealed some of the people involved. I was surprised to hear one of the producers does stuff for Little Simz, as her stuff is quite gritty and raw yet Sault is much more polished.

Inflo, who was also involved with the last two Michael Kiwanuka albums. I think the vocals are Cleo Sol.

That looks like a great tracklist, will listen! Nice moody artwork as well, slight throwback to The Streets as well.

Yeah, think you're right with Cleo Sol now you mention it, the name cropped up on the show but I forgot and couldn't be bothered re-listening.
