Land Of Talk Delivers New Videos On Eve Of Fall Tour

We'd already mentioned that Land Of Talk had managed to line up a bi-coastal tour and a new EP for the fall. Well now it looks as though they're getting even more gears going by dropping videos for a pair of tracks off of last year's Some Are Lakes. In the past two weeks videos have popped up on YouTube for both "Troubled" and "It's Okay", and both are pretty damn slick.

"Troubled" (above) is a nice film-y walk through the woods, following lead singer Liz Powell as she walks through the woods lighting sparklers. It matches the tune quite well with its quiet simplicity.

"It's Okay" (also above) is quite the opposite, as it delivers an uber-fantasty animation of wolves and horses and skull faced riders. Frankly, we're at a loss as to its connection to the tune, but as an art piece it's positively stellar.

Given the rainy weather, we're thinking that should tide you over here in New York. Meanwhile, the band is kicking off their tour tonight in San Diego, where it is most certainly not raining. Next week the band will be heading north, and hitting San Francisco on Monday night at Cafe Du Nord. They'll be making it to New York on November 21st, when they'll be playing Mercury Lounge. We can't wait.
