Salt is the third full length album by Mr Twin Sister.
Salt was written and recorded over roughly four years.
Salt is the name of the marionette featured on the cover of Salt.
Salt was built from pearls, fabric, beads, and wood by Andrea Estella.
Salt foregrounds the distinctive, increasingly confident vocal work of Andrea Estella.
Salt follows Mr Twin Sister’s continued pursuit of tightly arranged, pop-informed interpretations of American song forms (r&b, funk, jazz, electro).
The influence of dance and electronic music on the group - a theme explored prominently on Mr Twin Sister’s 2014 self titled album - appears on Salt in a matured, sublimated form.
Salt’s lyrics touch on hopelessness, isolation, missed connections, loss of self, insolvency, the surveillance state, American consumerism, body image, gender variance, porn, and secular spirituality.
Salt features Mr Twin Sister’s first track in Spanish, “Deseo,” in which Estella compares alteration of the human body to the art of bonsai.
Salt makes strategic use of member Eric Cardona’s increasingly sophisticated work as a tenor saxophonist.
- Salt features frequent contributions from drummer and percussionist Pablo Eluchans.
