((Land of Talk)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Land of Talk's Elizabeth Powell has often been compared to P.J. Harvey and Chan Marshall of Cat Power. Her voice does sound like Marshall's at times, especially during the band's rare slower moments, and her lyrics do have some of that same angsty sass that Harvey has, but what this trio from Montreal really sounds like is a "big" band.

Their songs are definitely guitar driven -- they fuzz, they swirl, and they have up-tempo choruses that would sound good in stadiums (as much as that's possible anyway). Land of Talk will probably be pretty popular, as I can see their music appealing to a lot of different types of people; guys, girls, the "indie" kids and the "depends" dudes (get it?). They're just another reason Toronto is right now thinking: "Montreal must be stopped!"
