Don’t let the name fool you; Haiku Salut are neither French nor Japanese. Instead, they hail from Derbyshire. The tracks they make on Etch and Etch Deep combine a big stack of sounds grabbed from sources electronic and acoustic, with results that are both strange and highly tuneful. On How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

5/10 Laurie Staff review, 05 August 2015

On the morosely-titled label How Does It Feel To Be Loved we have Derbyshire’s Haiku Salut, who are about to release this album of folk/electronica/classical crossover music with the intent to lull. Will a blend of ‘minimal techno’ and ‘trad folk melodies’ ever work? Let’s have a look then.

So far I’ve heard some Heart FM drivetime melodies played on xylophones, pianos with a touch of echo and now there’s a kick drum thumping away like a good ol’ Mumford & Sons stomp. Hmm. There’s this bendy sampler thing that sort of feels like a tacked-on gizmo, a token piece of electronica that doesn’t seem to gel, and holy crap what is that Kevin & Perry synth that comes in halfway through the second track. I feel that they may have missed the mark a BIT when they cited Aphex Twin and Sigur Ros in the press release…

It all feels a little naive. The fact that the aforementioned track is called ‘You Dance A Particular Algorithm’ speaks for itself, a telling overstatement of the record’s position in the musical landscape. Get Bon Iver’s self-titled and Prefuse 73’s recent one (three?) instead. Not a fan, sorry.
