The Rock Salt 2010 Compilation
Street: 04.17
The Rock Salt = a hip cross-section of Utah bands
Rock, pop, indie, ambient, hip hop, singer-songwriter, jazz, metal––it’s all here, and it’s all as local as the lake-effect, but way better.  For 2010, The Rock Salt has given us a damn canorous cornucopia (thanks dictionary.com).  Songs were contributed by 17 local acts, including crooner Tyler Evans, the experimental 6335, the intense Top Dead Celebrity, talented jazz-man Dave Chisholm, and one of my favorite local bands Pilot This Plane Down even threw some metal into this potpourri of palatable performances.  All the proceeds of this album go to KRCL 90.9 along with other fine supporters of SLC’s independent music.  This is a solid mix, and it’s backed by a good cause, so head down to Slowtrain (221 East Broadway) and pick up a copy.  It won’t even be considered a good deed since you’ll be getting so much out of the transaction.
