Following a seven-year break, Montreal indie rock four-piece Land of Talk returned this year with a majestic third LP called Life After Youth, released in May on Saddle Creek Records. The album finds singer and songwriter Elizabeth Powell and her bandmates in reflective mode, a bit wiser for the years than in their more emo-tinged earlier days, but no less willing to look within and self-reflect amid dreamy guitar tapestries. The band wowed earlier this year opening for The War on Drugs at the Dell, and tonight they’re at Union ...

Land of Talk keep the slow burn going on “This Time”

Land of Talk | photo by Tyler Knight | via the artist’s Facebook page

Midway through “Inner Lover”, the first new Land of Talk offering in years, Elizabeth Powell intones, “You light it slowly,” amidst crawling drums and droning guitar. It’s an strange, mystifying hook that pops up several times throughout the song’s sprawling five minutes, and with their latest single “This Time”, they continue taking it to heart. While the track falls more in line with the rest of the band’s catalog than its immediate predecessor, it features the same patient arrangement that made “Inner Lover” feel so fresh.

After returning from their long hiatus last year with a series of live shows, Elizabeth Powell’s Land of Talk has just shared their first new single in more than seven years. It’s off their new album Life After Youth, which drops this May 19th via Saddle Creek records.

If you’re a fan of Powell’s previous work, the first thing you’re likely to notice here is how few guitars there are. Until about two minutes deep, the track is all spacious drums, bass, and moody keyboard, so when the distorted ...
