Chicago trio Twin Talk are getting ready to release their new album, Weaver, next month, continuing in the same earthy, elemental sound that they inhabit so well. Katie Ernst’s vocals are more accompanying coos that float over her solid bass playing. Andrew Green’s crisp drumming is utterly refreshing, and saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi ties it all together with a balanced sound that never overwhelms but keeps things far from the doldrums. It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from this group, but with Weaver, it’s good to have them back. Check out the video for the title track below and be on the lookout for the album when it drops February 8th.
