“Salish Rock” is Friday Harbor-based rock band Desolation Sound’s debut album! Gathering tunes from their existing EPs along with three new tracks, the band worked with producer Adam Kasper (with additional help from Jon Auer of The Posies) to create a record that genuinely catches the mood of the island they call home. Also, Jon sang and played on a few of the tracks.

Most of the songs were written on guitarist/vocalist Daniel Day’s acoustic guitar in his backyard overlooking Westcott Bay. There are songs about how much the band love their friends, family, their home, and even record stores! It’s a new day, yesterday was long ago, as one of the songs says.

Simply put, “Salish Rock” is a collection of eleven great power pop songs that are guaranteed to get your feet tapping and your mind racing.
