Amidst several attempts at completing a full length album the band was taken off task by numerous personal upheavals, artistic miss-directs, and an appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba–clearly a confusing time. Pulled together from a number of recording sessions that took place during 2007 and 2008, Moths is a document of songwriter Scott LD Walker’s angers and frustrations, resulting in a typically Salteens-like call to arms in attempt to overcome life’s hardships. Despite there being a complete lack of continuity in how Moths was created, the end result is cohesive — these are protest songs. But the bubbly horns, jangly guitars, and joyous harmonies are all still there. And while the kids who came to love the Salteens after watching them on Yo Gabba Gabba might listen to Moths and just want to dance, their parents will no doubt recognize the rallying cry of a generation unwilling to accept defeat.
