Go in lightly

Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?
After a brief stint singing with Broken Social Scene, Montreal songstress Elizabeth Powell is back to fronting her own band, Land of Talk. The trio’s second full-length, Cloak and Cipher is coming out on August 24 via Saddle Creek. Head to Exclaim! to read my album announcement.

Here’s the first single, “Swift Coin.” It’s got a buzzsaw guitar and thundering drums, but at it’s core, it’s a sweetly wistful pop song. There’s no mystery why Powell was recruited to sing for Broken Social Scene, since her vocals bear a distinct similarity to Emily Haines.

Oh hey, Land of Talk is going on tour. I wrote about that for Exclaim! too.

I’m spending the long weekend in Nelson, BC, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting in the next few days. Happy summer—it’s all downhill from here.
