[NOISE ROCK] The moniker Talkative fits the band’s music rather well, as does the name of the group’s 2012 effort, Frantically. Filled with lingering ambient textures, swells of guitar effects, distantly recorded vocals and strange sound loops, the young Portland trio (by way of Eugene) plays stuff that’s busy, eclectic and jarring at times. It’s the kind of immersive music best experienced in full live sets or whole albums, as single tracks don’t paint an accurate picture of the band’s vision, which—aside from the obvious Animal Collective comparison—feels compulsive and exploratory. Such a vast and unpredictable soundscape suggests musicians fueled by noise over structure and improvisation over meticulous crafting. The results are both talkative and frantic, but promising, nonetheless.
