Song of the Day # 1,226 Land of Talk

Wonderful new album from Ontario's Land of Talk, Life After Youth, released a week or so back. Their first for seven years after leader Elizabeth Powell took some time out to care for her father who had suffered a stroke. There are traces of the traumatic nature that experience necessarily entailed in the lyrics here, but also a consistent, upbeat resolve.

It's shimmering guitar pop that's alternative but with the slightest traces occasionally of Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac about it. It's a grower too. Many of its songs are absolute peaches. Recommended!
