Rusty Salvo - Rush Through Me (song review) |self-released, single, 2012|

Rusty Salvo is a new American solo project. Founder Quinten Schmit played in a band 15 years ago in Seattle, but has spent almost 10 years on hiatus since that time. Quinten has now returned in 2012 with a brand new single called "Rush Through Me".

The song is catchy, memorable and short with hit potential. It may also be a great addition to targeted radio playlist as well. The track is characterized by a simple beat and traditional song structure where the arrangements are enriched with various effects. A programmed drumbeat provides the percussive spine of the composition since there is no live drummer currently in the band. If you listen to the song arrangements closely, you will hear some similarities to music by artists such as KMFDM, The Chemical Brothers as well as Peaches. You may also notice that this track carries many musical styles within - from soft digital hardcore through techno to pop and rock.

Guitar riffs appear within a few moments of the intro with pause for a breakbeat of audio effects similar to those commonly used in techno and rave. Since both techniques come from two different genres, they contrast with each other like two opposite moods. Such an unexpected link may turn out pretty confusing for music genre purist. On the other hand, this connection of musical structuring may sound very original for many listeners who dig more diversified sounds.

Quinten's vocals are very good and bring out his individual character. He uses little distortion and effects in this song. This makes his voice sound protagonistic and rebellious, similar to the styles of Atari Teenage Riot as well as Prodigy. Thus, already having this slightly British vibe, it may be a good idea to gain the interest of the UK music market first before reaching out to American listeners.

Rusty Salvo seems to be keen on electronic solutions - samplers, sequencers, effects and other devices. Quinten has high production skills that come with many years of experience. This should allow him for more musical experimentation. He also says he hopes to get his songs placed into commercials, video games or other performance media which actually may work out for him very well. I have no doubts that "Rush Through Me" will sound as good with proper visuals as it sounds alone with an active imagination.
