Land of Talk- “Loving” (Dine Alone): Land of Talk has actually been silent for the past seven years, as Montreal singer/songwriter Liz Powell placed her highly-regarded project on indefinite hiatus.
News of her return has been enthusiastically received, as have the first two singles taken from a new album, Life After Youth, to be released on May 19th.
This third single is a gentle spell-binder. Waves of guitar and vocal harmonies wash over the listener, with noted US songstress Sharon Van Etten providing the latter. Powell’s voice shows its strength as an atmospheric instrument here, abetted by the production and mixing work of Besnard Lakes leader Jace Lasek and Sonic Youth collaborator John Agnello.
A Land Of Talk summer North American tour begins at Montreal's O Ptro Vys on May 25, followed by dates in the US and western Canada. A full itinerary is here.
