Great power pop
the latest from the locals, and my favorite so far! It appeals to my need to some power pop. The strong vocals make me think of the Throwing Muses at their best and the band has the chops to back up those vocals!
Salt Seasons My Soul
I will start by saying that I'm a big fan of The Locals. I go to most of their Chicago shows. I've even gone to a show in Madison once. I rally people to go to their shows. I play their music and also make people listen to it. I think it's safe to say that by the time Salt was released I knew all the words to all the songs. They are gifted musicians and the bassist is so sick that I am often just watching her fingers go while I'm rocking out at their concerts. There are some intricacies in their sound that are just plain exciting. I love real musicians who make awesome music. Therefore, I love The Locals. I love Salt.
