"I don't do well in jail, I look good in handcuffs though..."


..."But that is what you get with Salme – courage, talent, excitement, energy and everything done to  the highest standards possible. She is pure  New York.  Pop Propaganda 2 radiates the city’s  diversity and energy; you can hear the rooftop  parties, the basement raves, the living streets  of New York in every song. It’s no  wonder;  Salme is quintessential  New York energy and work ethic; she plays every instrument, writes and sings every lyric and produces every song herself,  pouring her essence and her ethic  into each line and note  and riff.  Taken individually, each song on Pop Propaganda2  can stand alone as either a  rock-‘till-you drop  dance  number, or a joyfully listenable social commentary.  Taken together, they combine into what should be at very least the dance album of the year."

What The Critics Are Saying


“Salme Dahlstrom is into electronic pop goodness. Over the top, but never losing her footing, her album The Acid Cowgirl Audio Trade is a good time party album that should be played really fucking loud..”



I've never heard such a stylish blend of disparate influences. What's surprising is that it all just works. Hmm... suddenly "works" seems so understated. It's way better than chocolate and it's got attitude too.

I am honored to make the acquaintance of a trendsetter”   -DJ MOT, GIRLS ROCK RADIO

“Salme Dahlstrom's "Hello California" is crystalline, guilty-pleasure pop”


“The album is a pure adrenaline shot of pumped up beats as vibrant as a high definition rainbow after an electrical storm. It's a hi-nrg voyage from the shores of Madonna to the temples of Fatboy Slim via the electroclash of Felix Da Housecat”      -THE DEVIL HAS THE BEST TUNA

"Salme Dahlstrom is the acid cowgirl!”   -UNSIGNED MUSIC MAGAZINE

"This song is hot and should be filling dancefloors everywhere real soon"


"Dude I love that track, I absolutely love that track. That line about the Delano had me at hello!"    -ART ROONEY – WSGL in Naples, Florida & NRR Radio

"This is fun! Full of energy! The album version, Massi & Deleon, Martin Fry-Knapp, and

Tribal Injection mixes all work for me"    -MIKE KING, WNMC

"Nice energy, hot production throughout the nice variety of remixes & some sultry vocals to help heat up the cold night of the Winter of 2010/2011"



"...Relentlessly hooky and ridiculously accessible, with bits of hip-hop and dance music floating around in a matrix of straight sugar pop" - Myles Raymer, Entertainment Weekly

Have you ever wanted a female Fatboy Slim? Doesn’t matter, Dahlstrom fills the role with aplomb. Seriously, try to not think about “Praise You” during this tune. It’s impossible. I love it"

Stephen Carradini, Independent Clauses

"The new track continues the Dahlstrom tradition of endlessly poppy and strikingly approachable music, all with the home-grown sensibility of an artist who produces, performs, edits and mixes all of her songs herself" - Magnet Magazine

"This song is a great summer track, meant for cruising with the hood down, wind breezing through your hair, and getting sexy'ed and loved-up to your lover, oh sizzling!" - Clown Magazine (Pop Ur Heart Out)

"[Dahlstrom] trades in unashamedly trashy electro-pop and has also shown to have a keen ear for commercial songwriting. "Love + Shine" is a well-structured, punchy Minogue-esque (more Dannii than Kylie) pop song reminiscent of Girls Aloud’s Sound Of The Underground" Aaron Slater, Songwriting Magazine (UK)

"This song is hot and should be filling dancefloors everywhere real soon"


“Promising to be one of this summer’s hottest party tracks, “1-2-3-4-5” kicks off the poolside parade with a monstrously hard hitting track that you will never get out of your head” -Brandon Minia, 24Our Music

"Every once in a while a song comes along that revives that ‘feel-good’ atmosphere we seemingly abandoned for darker fare with the new millennium; ‘1-2-3-4-5’ is irresistible!"


"1-2-3-4-5" feat. Mikey P, from the album Elevation Junkie
