Montreal’s Land of Talk For Saddle Creek

 

From Omaha
to Montreal,
with love, and back again…

By Blurt Staff

 

The ever-hip, uber-tasteful Saddle Creek label has announced
the signing of Montreal trio Land of
Talk in the United States
and are set to release their debut full-length, Some Are Lakes on October 7. The album was recorded in Montreal with Justin Vernon
(Bon Iver) and is the followup to the much-loved and critically-drooled-over 2006
EP, Applause Cheer Boo Hiss.

 

The band is fronted by vocalist/guitarist Elizabeth Powell
(described by one critic as having “a voice that flits between come-hither and
go-fuck-yourself” — hey, we are all about go-fuck-yourself voices!). She’s
joined by bassist Chris McCarron and drummer Andrew Barr (from The Slip). They
toured throughout much of 2006-07 with the likes of the Decemberists and Tapes
n’ Tapes – expect more of the same around the time of the album’s release.
