Salvia Plath might not ring a bell immediately, and all thoughts of American writer Sylvia Plath may not be entirely coincidental.
Salvia, not Sylvia, has just been signed to Domino Records and releases his Bardo States album next week, but was releasing music under the RunDMT moniker since dropping his debut album Bong Voyage in 2009. Listening to his first Salvia Plath release is quite a joyful experience, like exploring the history of amazing folk-pop (imagine Ariel Pink in normal) and ’60s guitar music (The Beatles, anyone?). It’s almost as though you should stop teaching kids what The Beatles and all those dudes in the ’60s did, and just play them Salvia Plath’s Bardo States to get their lesson. Try it below:
Bardo States is out on July 8th via Weird World/Domino Records.
