VIDEO: Land of Talk “The Man Who Breaks Things (Dark Shuffle)”

Posted August 21st, 2009 by eric

Land of Talk is one of those bands that sneaks up on me and kicks my ass every time. They slip under the radar, and I forget about them completely. Then, a few months later I am reminded how much I like them, and the cycles starts all over again. Luckily for me, the band has a new EP via Saddle Creek, some tour dates, and this new video for “The Man Who Breaks Things (Dark Shuffle)” off both the new Fun and Laughter EP and their full-length Some Are Lakes. I’m not sure what’s going on with Elizabeth Powell’s hairdo in this video (she normally looks much, much cuter), but the song is ace. The band has been sidelined for most of the year because of Powell’s vocal problems, but they’ve lined up a west coast tour for fall:

10/27 – San Diego, CA, Casbah
10/29 – Los Angeles, CA, Spaceland
10/30 – Visalia , CA, Cellar Door
11/02 – San Francisco, CA, Cafe DuNord
11/04 – Portland, OR, Doug Fir
11/05 – Seattle, WA, High Dive
11/06 – Bellingham, WA, The Nightlight
11/07 – Vancouver, BC, Biltmore Cabaret
