Talkdemonic: Duality of Deathening

So, “Duality of Deathening” is about three years old, but news of post-rock duo Talkdemonic, a post-rock duo from Portland, and their transition to the Glacial Pace Recordings, (the home of Modest Mouse, don’tcha know?), led me to find this video, which I very much enjoyed. The news comes via PMA PR. Enjoy.


Portland's post-rock duo Talkdemonic has signed with Modest Mouse singer Isaac Brock's label, Glacial Pace Recordings. The band joins Morning Teleportation, Marcellus Hall, Mimicking Birds and Modest Mouse at the label.

The twosome is coming off a tour with Modest Mouse and a coveted spot at the 2011 Sasquatch Festival in Washington State with the likes of Foo Fighters, Wilco, and Death Cab for Cutie.

The band began in 2003 as a side project for Kevin O'Connor, who, at the time, was experimenting with eclectic electric percussion and no-vox melodies. After a few recording sessions and live appearances, he teamed with Lisa Molinaro, who brought game-changing synth, viola and cello layers to the table.

"Instrumental post-rock" that "lays a bevy of acoustic elements over a foundation of pulsing programmed beats and modulating, soft-focus synthesizers" (Pitchfork). There's no doubt Talkdemonic is "one of Portland's best-kept secrets" (XLR8R).

Glacial Pace Recordings was started in 2005 as a place for Brock to produce and showcase up and coming talent that crosses his path of world wide music discovery. This year has seen success with the debut first record from Marcellus Hall (Railroad Jerk, White Hassle) and the debut record from Morning Teleportation "Expanding Anyway".

Talkdemonic is busy in the studio finishing their record and plan to tour the US in the fall in support of the album.

The band will open for Modest Mouse on Saturday July 2nd in Troutdale, OR at Edgefield and attendees can expect to hear some tracks from the forthcoming album.
