Newsflash: Saddle Creek is still relevant! Land of Talk announce fall tour!

Lest you are under the impression that Saddle Creek Records has gone the way of Touch & Go or Lookout, Canada’s Land of Talk are here to remind you that the early 00s indie monster is still up and running. In this case, Land of Talk are embarking on a fall tour in support of their latest release, Cloak and Cipher, due August 24. The follow-up to 2008’s Some Are Lakes (TMT Review) was not only recorded in Montreal with producer Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes, Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown), but it also features guest appearances from pretty much every Canadian that can play an instrument, like Patrick Watson and Jeremy Gara of Arcade Fire, as well as various members of Stars, Wintersleep, Besnard Lakes, and Esmerine, for starters.
