Synopsis

Album Description
Slang sets off on another sonic adventure with More Talk About Tonight, the second release from the critically-acclaimed alliance, in stores August 17th (Terminus Records). Filled with sophisticated arrangements and free improvisations, the album is both indefinably modern and reassuringly classic at the same time, as if the duo in charge (Layng Martine III and Dave Schools) were equally as influenced by Herbie Hancock as Brian Eno. They pilfer freely from abstract rock, alternative jazz and electronica, and the result is nothing short of beautiful cacophony. For More Talk About Tonight, Martine began by tracking the improvisational threads that developed out of the recording process when he gathered the "core band": bassist Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), drummer Matt Abts (Gov?t Mule), keyboardist Ray Packzkowski (Trey Anastasio, Viperhouse) and guitarist/special effects master Knox Chandler (The Golden Palominos). More Talk About Tonight plays like a night at a post-apocalyptic speakeasy, with friends like Vic Chesnutt, DJ Logic (Medski, Martin & Wood), Lori Carson (The Golden Palominos), Eric McFadden (George Clinton), Paul Pimsler, Jay Rodriguez (Groove Collective), and others occasionally stepping up onstage to join Martine and Schools for a song or two before disappearing back into the smoke-filled room. More Talk About Tonight weaves a brilliant soundscape brimming with abstract imagery and atmosphere.

A Must Buy!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel this album is at least five times better than their debut record, The Bellwether Project. Layng Martine and Dave Schools really break through with a eclectic group of musicians comprised of DJ Logic, Eric McFadden, Matt Abts, Vic Chestnutt and a lot more. With so many players with a wide range of style keeps this record changing ever so often to where it pleases almost all musical tastes. (...)"
