Six Senses of autumn 14

autumn 14

THE WORLD IS A SENSORY place. salt takes a peek at items that evoke us to see, hear, smell, taste and touch and we have tossed in an extra just for fun … feel.
We all secretly love ’80s music. Even though those kitsch sounds make us cringe with the memories, they are unforgettable and catchy. A trio of sisters from LA called ‘Haim’ (rhymes with time) have managed to take the best elements of ’80s sound and wrench them into the now with a splash of California sunshine and a generous helping of retro cool. ‘The Wire’ is an instant hit with echoes of Stevie Nicks, the track ‘Let me go’ feels like a timeless girl power anthem, and ‘Forever’ just needs a Breakfast Club-type film to bring it to life. Their whole album Days are Gone will have you flinging your hair around and plucking air guitar before you can say “Back to the Future”!

Not every aspiring artist has unending determination, ambition and immeasurable talent. In fact the world is quite possibly full of just the opposite. Meet Frances Ha, the 27-year-old apprentice dancer in New York with no idea who or what tomorrow might bring. This movie is disarmingly funny, charming and awkward, lead actress Greta Gerwig will dance her way into your heart with this performance full of brutal honesty, innate candour, and sparkling spontaneity.
