Adore them, however this is a group that really split opinion.
I think they are one of the best new groups for aeons. Doing something completely original which is very hard to do in 2011.
I understand why people cant warm to them. But i think their sound can be absolutely epic and overwhelmingly beautiful, terrifying, and emotional at the same time.
Love the fact they draw from so many different influences and gel it together to make it work.
Their record King Knight was mindblowing. Hate the term witch house. I dont know what they are. But its amazing. And very powerful.
Have you gotten into another, and I hate to use this term but it's hard to describe it otherwise, "Witch House" artists? I dig Salem, and I really respect what they're doing and the new sound they pretty much invented, I just think that there are other artists out there doing it better at this point.
ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER i dont know if its witch house but the record was called RETURNAL it came out last last year along with KING KNIGHT and blew me away.
A lot of good stuff coming out at the moment.
I really like where the genre is going. There is a label called Tri Angle Records, and pretty much all the artists they release are amazing. How to Dress Well, Balam Acab, Holy Other, oOoOO, Ritualz, Calms Casino, and I'm sure there are more I am forgetting at the moment.
Young Cream is one of the guys in Salem's side project. It's pretty cool.
Disario is a good label for this genre, too. Modern Witch is a stand-out.

Salem is damn good. I'm Still in the Night EP is amazing.
Can't wait for new stuff.
