10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The striking second album from this dynamic six-piece does something rare indeed—it synthesizes the tangible personalities of the band’s individual members. From Alex Hwang’s spittle-drenched, tremulous voice and Jennifer Rim’s searching violin to the clever arrangements of drummer John Chong, Drinking from a Salt Pond is a celebratory document of a truly committed collective. Sugary harmonies lift the pop anthem “Can’t Come Down,” and snaking instrumentation threads through the moody “Elam,” while “Anthony” boldly injects snarling attitude into otherwise elegant songcraft.
