Land of Talk Release Free mp3, Announce 2008 Fall Tour Dates

Wednesday, 27 August 2008

Montreal’s own Land of Talk announced not too long ago that a new album was in the works and I’ve been counting down the days till the newest addition to the Saddle Creek roster was going to drop that bomb on the indie world. The release date for Some Are Lakes is October 7, 2008, and you can pre-order that bad boy here.

And in true modern-day fashion, Land of Talk are giving people a sneak peak at the song stylings set to follow up their much-adored EP, Applause Cheer Boo Hiss, which dropped in 2006. The title track for Some Are Lakes embodies most of what the debut offered up, but it sounds a bit stronger and more approachable, but still predominately features the gorgeous vocals of singer/songwriter/guitarist Elizabeth Powell. The new album sounds like it’ll be on many a top 10 list.
