Various Artists Salmonella Dub/Remixes And Radio Cuts
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Timeless Music
The carefree horns of "Drifting" highlight what‘s best about this five-piece New Zealand reggae outfit: an attention to the subtle nuances that serve as every band‘s trademark. Add in great harmonies and production and this collection settles somewhere between dub lite and R&B. While displaying a penchant for the necessary resonant echo (check out Adrian Sherwood‘s take on "Push on Thru"), this hodgepodge is truly scattered; for instance, a gorgeous Groove Corporation cut jogs alongside an unnecessarily hyper Concord Dawn drum & bass track. Like fellow New Zealanders Fat Freddy‘s Drop, Salmonella‘s brilliance lies in vocal hooks; when textured correctly, their sound sparkles.
