Land of Talk is an effortlessly cool chick-fronted trio from Montreal on the Saddle Creek label (Bright Eyes, Cursive, Rilo Kiley). Centered around the “slow-burn drawl that suggests Lucinda Williams fronting a power trio” of Elizabeth Powell, Land of Talk hits Denver’s Larimer Lounge tomorrow night and I am told I shall enjoy them greatly.
In the midst of some tour dates with Broken Social Scene, they are currently supporting their debut full-length album Some Are Lakes.
The album was co-produced by Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver), but sounds nothing like his music. This bright, snarly, indie rock was recorded in an old converted church outside Montreal, and possesses loads of charm with a fiery edge.
