Haiku Salut are from Derby and approach their set like meticulous multi-instrumentalists, an almost boffin-like dedication to each instrument swap and eight bar loop. Out of the tumble of piano, accordian, ukelele and percussion (amongst other things) comes a beautifully flighty mix of modern composition and just-the-right-side-of-twee instrumental lilting. And out of that suddenly come laptop glitches and hulking electronic beats, a forest rave that flares and recedes again, leaving three slightly shy women back onstage. Anna Meredith does a similarly inventive compositional thing, and Haiku Salut are in that league of greatness – music out of nothing that’s astounding and outstanding.

i like how in this post messageboard world Ian just talks to Ianhowfeel on here. like Dr Bowman and HAL or something!
And as we sat there talking
Jesus turned to say to me
"You'd better learn and love this life ‘cos there's things
There's things that are hard to see"

It's funny coming back here - like visiting a ruined city. But it's useful for archiving the Haiku press, so here I am again...

Haiku Salut - Bleak & Beautiful (All Things)

Derbyshire three-piece Haiku Salut continue to defy the restrictions of genre with their gorgeous new track, ‘Bleak & Beautiful.’ Taken from the band’s forthcoming album, Etch and Etch Deep, the track opens with ambient, minimalistic synths before giving way to carnival-esque folk melody.
