I’m always on the lookout (or should that be listenout?) for new music. I’ve got an eclectic taste from classical and early choral to heavy rock via bluegrass and folk. It’s not often I’ll hear some music and think “I need to get that music ASAP” but that’s what happened to me recently and I thought you might like it to!
I first heard the music from ‘Salt of the Sound’ on ‘Pray As You Go‘ a great daily prayer podcast from Jesuit Media Initiatives (different music features each day as an intro to the prayer time) and it simply blew me away. I headed over to the Pray As You Go website as soon as I could to find out what the music was and where I could get it!
Salt of the Sound
Salt of the Sound are the husband and wife team of Anita and Ben Tatlow, based in Stockholm Sweden where they lead the music ministry of Immanuel International Church.
Their aim is to create songs that encourage spiritual reflection both in church environments and in times of personal quiet, while also exploring musical styles and expressions that bring a freshness to the Christian music scene.
The first song of there’s I heard was ‘As the Mist Clears’ from their latest album ‘Through the Mist’. I’d describe the sound of Salt of the Sound as reflective, restful, and beautiful. If you like Sigur Ros, then you’ll love Salt of the Sound!
Here’s a preview of a couple of tracks from the Through the Mist album:
Once I’d heard some of their music – I wanted more! I checked out some more of their music on SoundCloud and Bandcamp and fell in love with tracks from ‘Through the Mist’ and their instrumental album ‘Meditations, Vol. 1’ (which features instrumental versions of some of the tracks from ‘Through the Mist’).
Since I got the two albums, they’ve been on near permanent loop on my iTunes!
They’re great to work, relax, meditate, worship and pray to. So please check them out – I think you might love them too. The Inspiration section on their blog is also a great place to check out other music (I’ll be looking for some other new stuff on there!).
