About Land of Talk
Elizabeth Powell’s project Land of Talk has been defined by their intense guitar and vibrato-heavy vocals. With five studio albums under their belts – starting with 2008’s Some Are Lakes and the fifth, Indistinct Conversations in 2020, the band just released their sixth, Performances via Saddle Creek. On this album, the Montreal outfit steps back and pares down. Written primarily on piano and featuring sparse instrumentation from Laurie Torres (Pomme, Julia Jacklin), much of the album's sparse songs work off aching vulnerability and thoughtfulness; lyrical musings that feel like fragments from an exceptionally perceptive diary.
