Land of Talk takes another step away from its raw roots with Cloak and Cipher, with songs and vocals that are downright lush and lavish. Singer/guitarist Elizabeth Powell is joined not only by a new rhythm section, bassist Joseph Yarmush and drummer Andrew Barr, but a host of friends that just happen to be Canadian indie-rock luminaries. The Besnard Lakes’ Jace Lasek contributes an ornate string arrangement to Goal Time Exposure, while Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara drums on the expansive Quarry Hymns. The Hate I Won’t Commit, with its guitar onslaughts and sudden stops and starts, proves that Powell and company can still surprise.
