New Land of Talk Record and Dates

Montreal’s Land of Talk return this summer with the follow up to their 2008 buzz disk Some Are Lakes. The new studio set, titled Cloak and Cipher, hits the street on August 24 via Saddle Creek. Frontwoman and chief song-smith, Elizabeth Powell has gained quite a reputation in the last couple years for her relaxed, yet cutting voice, lean arrangements and pleasing visual aesthetic (ahem). We think her rising stock is well earned. Stay tuned for previews for Cloak and Cipher. Meanwhile, dig this live performance of the title track from Some Are Lakes.
