• Talk Normal

I had to spend some time wrestling with my options for Saturday night; there’s a lot of good music happening, and I can only be at one show at a time. On the noisier end of the spectrum is Brooklyn duo Talk Normal, who play on a knockout bill at Lincoln Hall with Xiu Xiu, Tune-Yards, and Zola Jesus. On the group’s recent debut full-length, Sugarland (Rare Book Room), Andrya Ambro and Sarah Register whip up a bristling throb—a barrage of guitar noise over pummeling, faux-tribal grooves—that evokes the heyday of post-no wave rock.
