CHRISTY & EMILY / TALK NORMAL - SPLIT EP (7")


"QUICK WORDS is a recording made in the Brooklyn wintertime. For Christy & Emily, these songs are a preview of their newer sound with bass (Pete Kerlin) and drums (Kristin Mueller). The extra track on the digital download card is a song by Oakley Hall, called Endtime Evangelist, of their first self-titled album on Bulb. This song has been strong on Emily's mind for half a decade, only coming out as a cover that the duo has been performing live in the last year. Talk Normal's "Hurricane" is a soaring narrative piece. Lead by drummer Andrya Ambro's melodic lead vocal and buffeted by guitarist Sarah Register's harmonies, "Hurricane" is a sing-a-long story told with humility, grace & pleasing cacophony. Conceptual references range from U.S. Girls to Meredith Monk to Tears For Fears to The Velvet Underground - yet the sound is all their own, with an ebbing structure that carries the imagination through a manic ocean of soundscapes, wildly complex and still simple enough to be howled at the moon."
