New Land Of Talk – “Young Bridge” (Stereogum Premiere)

Land Of Talk stole our hearts last year, releasing the excellent Applause Cheer Boo Hiss EP that earned them a Band To Watch distinction and luring us to see them countless times all over the LES. After awhile, though, we just got antsy for new music. Looks like we’ll have to wait a little while longer for a proper follow-up record, but there’s good news for folks needing more to Talk about: as a result of Little Indian signing the band, the EP’s getting a UK release complete with three previously unreleased songs, making it a ten-track LP that we couldn’t recommend more to our trans-Atlantic friends. Don’t know if “Young Bridge” was recorded before or after drummer Bucky’s departure, but either way it’s outstanding, a sweet pop tune with a crashing intro and another sweetly distressed Lizzie vocal stamped with airy backing “baahh”s…

Applause, cheer…
