Land of Loose 

Land of Talk

There's something very satisfyingly early-'90s about Land of Talk. Maybe it's the Montreal trio's looseness: Its heralded debut seven-song mini album Applause Cheer Boo Hiss effortlessly brandishes energy and emotion without needing to get fancy. Vocalist Elizabeth Powell keeps with the theme, taking her cues from the coolly Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead and the feverishness of PJ Harvey. Land of Talk opens for the Rosebuds with the Morning Benders on Tuesday, June 12 at the Great American Music Hall in SF. 8 p.m., $12-$14.
