The Saintanne = Calexico + The Big Pink
The Saintanne is an interesting hodgepodge of styles and a rarity in the Utah scene. Their performance at a recent Localized at Urban Lounge was more thematic than musically engaging, which isn’t a bad thing. For a first introduction to the music of this EP, it was the only way to encounter it. Words like atmospheric and layered would be inadequate to describe the dense landscape Tom Bennett and company create on this EP. A liquid light show on a moon canvas and heavily effected vocals set the stage for my enjoyment of the EP after the performance. Four tracks don’t seem like enough. It will be interesting to see if the group can pull off a whole album in the same style of music.
