CD REVIEW: The Salteens
Salteens sweeten up

The Salteens
Let Go Of Your Bad Days
Boompa!



Rundown: With their instruments firmly strapped to their ever-touring bodies and their tongues stuck deftly in their cheeks, B.C. power-pop quartet The Salteens are back with their second full-length release, Let Go Of Your Bad Days.

Key Tracks: The Salteens' new effort shows a maturation since their debut album, Short-Term Memories. The title track packs a rockin' punch, but still manages to sound wistfully sentimental. "Home Again" shows off the vocal prowess of bassist Megan Bradfield.

Sounds Like: If Betty, Archie and Jughead formed a band, chances are it would sound a lot like this. Handclaps, "yeah yeah yeahs" and a multitude of instruments come together perfectly to grab the Can-Rock crown away from "old school" rockers like Sloan.
