salt "auscultate" (1995)

in the 90s sweden was known for hardcore. lots and lots of good hardcore....well lost in the shuffle of the refuseds, the separations, the doughnuts, were a band  playing music along different lines, but with the same spirit......salt was nina ramsby, daniel ewerman and jim tegman.....musically they played dischordant, hard edged rock with pop sensibility......sonic youth, shudder to think, even separation could  all be considered influences here....this was their one and only major label full length (on island records) and "bluster" was their semi-hit off this album..i know they did another record after this one called "Delay Me Down and Make Me Wah Wah!!" but i havent heard that record in so long that i forgot what it sounded like........anyways the music is on point more often than not and i like ninas vocals alot. after 16 years i can still say this shit holds up really well and i recommend this album wholeheartedly.
