Mad Mackerel Recommends…Salesman

Posted: October 16, 2010 in Alternative, Blues, Country, Folk, Music, Rock

When a song arrives that is described as “It’s the desert-rock murder ballad of a dancing girl and her two boyfriends at a strip club called Deja Vu Showgirls in Colorado Springs, CO, near where I grew up”, I cannot imagine a song I would want to hear more.

The song, So Much Faster, is by a band called Salesman. It is the previously unreleased b-side to a forthcoming 7″ release called Red Jug Wine Lover. Playing their own potent and malevolent take on dusty blues and rock, it sounds a bit like Nick Cave’s more twisted, sicker twin and that is a very good thing indeed.

And then there is the cover art – just about as good as anything we’ve seen this year.

All in all it adds up to a pretty strong recommendation. In fact, it is for songs like this that we started the blog, might we say “Sold”.
