Salt of the Sound "In Prayer" by Andrew Funderburk (CMADDICT.com) on 2017-10-30 10:01:19
Husband and wife duo Anita and Ben Tatlow, who form the band Salt of the Sound, release yet another album full of peaceful pieces of musical artistry. With their work being featured on various TV and radio circuits, this Stockholm based group continues to reach far with their work.
Overall, the new project In Prayer is quite short, lasting only about 17-18 minutes in length; however, this doesn't detract from the records beauty. The music woven together here flows from track to track causing the feel of a musical journey. Blended into some of the tracks are sounds from nature (e.g. waves on "Refuge"), which causes In Prayer to feel more natural and present and not just a far off thought.
By in large, vocals are scarce throughout most of the record. The songs vocals are featured on include, "Lamb of God", which remains largely repetitive in its lyrical approach, the opening track "Be Still My Soul", "Hope", and "Your Ways". Anita's vocals remain quite distant in these tracks, which provides a less distracting atmosphere in regards to other music, where the artist's voice is up front. Despite the vocal/lyrical scarcity, the times voices are present offers the same element of peaceful simple beauty.
By the end of Salt of the Sound's latest, refreshing and peace of mind are sure to be found. For studying, getting your kids to sleep, having background music for your times of studying the Word, or times or prayer and meditation, In Prayer provides you with the correct atmosphere, making this yet another solid release from this group.
