People of the Slog, meet Sean Salazar. He wants to be your next senator from Washington State, and he'll play whatever the fuck music he wants on his YouTube spots, ok?
Listen with your headphones, please. It's better that way. And hey, if you feel like you're meeting your new alien overlord, or floating in a spaceship that's lost power in a faraway galaxy, don't worry—that's just the sound of independence!
The Stranger's Dave Segal calls this a bold aural choice.
“In a way I kind of admire it," Segal said. "Because it goes against the grain of typical triumphant and celebratory political commercial music. It sounds vaguely like Brian Eno—faceless, ambient.”
And truly, nothing says senator like faceless and ambient!
