[AVANT-INSTRUMENTAL] It’s somewhat ironic that Portland transplant Kevin O’Connor chose to name his band Talkdemonic, considering his duo with Lisa Molinaro features no singing—let alone talking—whatsoever. The purely instrumental project, voted Willamette Week’s Best New Band more than eight years ago, has been playing label hot potato since its debut, eventually signing with Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace Recordings for the release of 2011’s sweltering Ruins. Once dubbed “folktronic hop” by O’Connor, the twosome heaves Molinaro’s fluid viola on top of a bombastic cannonade of live drums, prerecorded string compositions and laptop-induced electronic beats that would find a raw sense of solace alongside the likes of Explosions in the Sky and Britain’s James Blackshaw. Now that the duo plays as a four-piece live, you can expect the laptop to be taking a backseat.
