Unlike Pete Swanson, his former counterpart in Yellow Swans, Gabriel Saloman's work in the years since that band's split has become quieter and cleaner, but is still as powerful as ever. And the music he is composing now is unapologetically political. Most recently it's come in the form of Soldier's Requiem, a 2013 release whose tracks were originally composed to accompany an anti-war expression choreographed by a Vancouver, BC-based dance company. Its four pieces each devastate in their own way, whether it's through the pound of a martial drumbeat or, on the haunting "Boots on the Ground," guitar melodies accompanied by the simple sound of rainfall that are interrupted by more percussion racket and heavy drones.
