    Beautiful vocals. A little like an indie Edie Brickell Mezmorizing, raw backing tracks. Brilliant.

    Land of Talk opened for a Broken Social Scene concert I attended a couple weeks ago. Hadn't heard of the band before, but they were a very nice treat. Gotta love the hotbed of talent coming out of Montreal. Picked up the album and was not disappointed.

  1. Far removed from the desolation I feel surrounded by, Land of Talk's first full-length album's sense of hope, grounded in realism, is at once reassuring and encouraging.
  2. Ultimately, LOT’s songs will dictate their trajectory, and principal songwriter Liz Powell sounds mostly up to the task.
  3. As violent, plaintive, and ultimately conflicted as anything she's already written ("I know how to kill but I hate how it feels."), many of Powell's lyrical sketches are of the blood red, open-heart-surgery variety, a word set her producer knows well.
