Fasman’s Finds – SAULT

Fasman’s Finds is our new column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

Do you like joy? Me neither, mostly. But what do we do when we find ourselves in what feels like a never-ending cycle of frustration, anxiety, and grief? We turn to creative people to help us get out of our own heads and remember the magic that is being alive, even while we are in pain. The album Untitled (Rise) by SAULT walks (or dances, if you are me) us through a beautiful, fraught, emotional musical landscape that I cannot recommend highly enough. It is a masterpiece of contemporary R&B, disco, funk, and boogie that somehow doesn’t feel retro or dated at all, it feels fresh and forward-looking. I find myself turning to the song “Son Shine” often these days, which makes me realize two things: first, I love boogie, which is not a new realization but always a fun one to remember, and two, it is important to try, as frequently as possible, to cultivate moments of joy for ourselves.
