Saltland - i thought it was us but it was all of us


I am not advocating a reliance on a post-rock formula built on simple loud-soft dynamics — too much of that would really destroy the atmosphere that Foon accomplishes so well. But this album needs something to make it worth repeated listens. As her collaborator Colin Stetson continues to prove, tautological looping and repetition can work wonders. In I Thought It Was Us But It Was All of Us , though, the repetition and tedium doesn’t even work on a conceptual level: I don’t feel anxious while listening to the album, I don’t feel relaxed, and I don’t feel frustrated. I just don’t feel it at all. And that’s really the album’s problem, which is a shame because there’s some obvious talent at play here. Rebecca Foon shows her compositional promise at times on this record; I just hope it develops into something with a little more replay value.

The selection process has worked as a ‘relay race’ where The Lake has commissioned works from Kim Hiorthøy (NO), Mariam Wallentin (SE), Jussi Parikka (FIN) and Henriette Heise (DK). These four artists have then respectively invited Dag Johan Haugerud (NO), Nadine Byrne (SE), Geraldine Juarez (MEX/SE) and Syvende og Sidst (DK) to create works of their own.
